St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog Program Makes a Pawsitive Impact at Billy Bishop Airport

Billy Bishop Airport has once again partnered with volunteers at the St. John Ambulance (SJA) Therapy Dog Program to bring smiles and stress relief to travellers.
The therapy dogs, along with their volunteer handlers, visit passengers pre and post security to help them feel welcomed and relaxed before their flights.
In addition to Pablo the three-legged Australian Cattle Dog, we are excited to introduce our new therapy dogs to Billy Bishop Airport. Our new four-legged friends Mr. Darcy,Oakley, Fynn, and Hugo started at Billy Bishop Airport last month and have already made a “pawsitive” impact by providing a welcoming, friendly, and memorable experience for passengers as they travel through the airport.
The SJA Therapy Dog program has been bringing joy and comfort to Canadian communities for more than 30 years, offering canine companionship at hospitals, senior residences, care facilities, schools and community centres. Today, more than 3,500 therapy dog teams reach thousands of people each year across the country providing over 275,000 hours of their time.
The SJA therapy dogs will be visiting the airport regularly, so be sure to look for them on your next trip!
