Paws & Reflect Pet Therapy Dogs are volunteers that visit Alliance Community Hospital and Community Care Center on a weekly basis. Our dogs come in all shapes and sizes—big and small and everything in between! Whether a purebred or a mixed breed, each dog has a unique personality. All of the dogs have been certified through Therapy Dogs International, Inc. All of the dogs are also covered by TDI’s insurance policy.
