RIP Santino – Beloved Pet and Trusted Therapy Dog

It is with a heavy heart that we announce Santino, beloved pet and Sanford therapy dog, has died. Santino touched many lives at Sanford. Often, our clients responded to Santino before they were prepared to respond to people. And communing with Santino was a first step in their re-connection to family and friends.
