Purina + St. Louis Children’s Hospital

Time spent in a hospital usually means spending time away from familiar comforts, but it doesn’t have to. St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Purina partnered to create the Purina Family Pet Center, a custom space designed with Purina’s team of experts where family pets can safely visit their hospital-bound kids. Because being with your best friend while receiving care can be transformative.
