Meet Fern and Inka

Fern and Inka are two facility dogs working at the M Health Fairview University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital. As facility dogs, they are full-time staff members working alongside their handlers, childlife specialists, as they visit children and their families when they need it most.

Get an inside look at a day in the life of Rocket, our very first facility dog, and see the impact he is having on children and their families.

“There is nothing more important than the health and well-being of our children. The bond between pets and kids is extra special.”
