‘PuppyCam’ Relieves Stress at NIH
NIH hosted a PuppyCam at the Clinical Center in partnership with Hero Dogs Inc. and the Children’s Inn at NIH on Nov. 30. The Twitter livestream featured service dogs, therapy dogs and puppies-in-training and offered stress reduction tips.
The inn’s certified therapy dog, Zilly, made an appearance to let viewers know how she brings comfort, healing and stress relief to children, young adults and their families.
She was joined by her certified handler Melissa Dell’Omo, special assistant to the inn’s CEO and also Zilly’s designated caretaker, along with inn residents Jordan Larocco, 7, of Arizona, and Jayla Lee, 14, of Tennessee.
