Pet Therapy

We have several special volunteers with four legs instead of two! The healing power of a visit from a furry friend is demonstrated through our pet therapy program, which began in 1997. Our many registered and certified pet therapy dogs visit patients at various Renown locations.

Meet our pet therapy dogs and see how they are making a difference in our patients’ lives on our Healing Arts page.

Ronald McDonald Family Room

This longtime charity provides a home-away-from-home for families that need to be near to a child undergoing treatment. Although the main Ronald McDonald House is right next to the Renown Regional Medical Center, the Ronald McDonald Family Room in the Renown Children's Hospital allows families to stay even closer.

Apply to volunteer at the Reno Ronald McDonald House website.
