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."  


Are you looking to grant a pet as the complement to a child's critical illness plan, contact 1Wish to find a formal program to accommodate a child's wish for a loving pet 


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.
