Pets at St. Benedict's Health Center in Dickinson have touched the lives of many residents over the years, said Jon Frantsvog, administrator/CEO.

"The pets that come here do remarkable healing and do remarkable things for people here," said resident Corine Seidel. "If they're upset, you put an animal on their lap and it calms them."

Three dogs, four cats and about a dozen birds call St. Benedict's home, Frantsvog said.
