Corporate Spotlight: Mars Petcare

In 2017, Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt identified a need for a facility dog to serve our patients and families. Mars Petcare, through its BETTER CITIES FOR PETS program, collaborated with Monroe Carell to launch the program and provide support for a staff position and full-time facility dog. After completing training and certification by Canine Companions, Squid joined the hospital staff in February 2020. He can perform more than 40 commands to help motivate patients to meet specific treatment goals — not to mention the sheer joy patients experience when Squid stops by.

Mars Petcare continues to collaborate with Monroe Carell and feature Squid in a variety of activities and events with their associates, both online and at their Franklin, TN headquarters.
