Purina Family Pet Center at St. Louis Children's Hospital

The kids who are receiving care at the St. Louis Children’s Hospital in Missouri now have a new comfort. The hospital teamed up with Purina to open a pet center so the young patients can visit with their family pets, offering them much-needed emotional support.

The room, which is right off the hospital’s entrance, features washable surfaces and can accommodate a child in a wheelchair or hospital bed.

The Purina Family Pet Center is the fourth pet center at a pediatric hospital worldwide. — Read it at People Pets
