1Wish Pet was created to provide love and unconditional love and support for a child with life-altering illnesses. Mayo Clinic oncologist Dr. Edward Creagan says, "a pet is a medication without side effects that has so many benefits."

It is important to note that pet therapy isn't limited to dogs. Research has found benefits from therapy cats as well as other animals.
