Tampa Bay/Hudson, Florida – Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point is proud to announce that it has recently awarded 100 volunteer hour service pins to its two newest pet therapy dogs, Cotton and Lucky. Both of these gentle, loving Collies are handled by Ray Jozwik, who adopted them from Florida Collie Rescue. Cotton and Lucky are certified by Therapy Dog, Inc. after many hours of training and required medical clearance. Selection as therapy dogs is based upon the calm and gentle demeanor of the animals, even in the midst of chaos.

“Cotton and Lucky have each served over 100 hours at our hospital and deserve to be recognized for all the smiles, hope, and joy they bring to every patient, visitor, staff member and fellow volunteer they encounter,” said 

Donna Owen, Manager of Volunteer Services.
