Meet Cassie, Friendship Health's Pet "Therapist"

For those of you who don't know Cassie, she is our pet "therapist" at Friendship Health North!  She spreads joy and promotes healing with our skilled nursing care residents and rehabilitation patients.  

Cassie is 4 years old and earned her "Good Citizenship Award" in January 2020.  Cassie and Patricia, her owner, have been together since Cassie was 9 weeks old and they are inseparable!  When Cassie isn't working at Friendship, she loves to hike and run races!  Thank you Cassie (and Patricia too!) for your service!

We submitted a nomination for Cassie to Roanoker Magazine's Top Dog contest. Although she wasn't selected by the magazine, Cassie will always be a "top dog" in our book!
