After a two year hiatus, we are excited to welcome back John and Oscar (Oscar is the dog) from the St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog Program. Staff are welcome to come meet and pet Oscar at the Connell Bay Elevators on the 6th Floor. Staff will be able to greet Oscar one at a time and must sanitize their hands before petting him.

Some benefits of engaging in the St. John Ambulance Pet Therapy can include:

- Providing a sense of calming, lowering stress and blood pressure

- Offering a sense of happiness and hopefulness

- Providing a few minutes of distraction in one's work day
