Pet Therapy Program

Fur Friends at Rex!

We have eleven very special and professional Certified Therapy dogs who participate in our animal-assisted program offering visits to patients. 

  • The dogs are therapy certified and screened by a Veterinarian.
  • Rex therapy dogs visit patients for 5-10 minutes in the afternoons, Monday through Friday.   
  • Written consent by the patient is necessary for participation and physician approval is needed.

For questions or more information about the Fur Friends program, please contact Sherry Mendenhall, volunteer services coordinator at (919) 784- 2297 or sherry.mendenhall@rexhealth.com.
