Pet Support for People Impacted by Cancer.
While the cancer journey brings about feelings of stress, overwhelm, and anxiety, our Dempsey Dogs provide a welcome distraction, providing a sense of comfort and company whenever a patient, survivor, care partner, family member, or friend enter our doors.
Dempsey Dogs can be seen at our offices in Lewiston or South Portland throughout the week for a meet and greet, or you can schedule an individual “Paws Together” appointment for a private visit with one of our Dempsey Dogs. Learn more about our current Dempsey Dog schedule or request a private appointment by contacting us at 877-336-7287 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
All of our Dempsey Dogs are registered through Pet Partners and visit the Centers with their handlers on a volunteer basis. Our Dempsey Dogs program is proudly presented in part by IDEXX Laboratories.
