Certified pet therapy dogs and their owners are needed to visit Advocate Hospice patients throughout Lake and Cook counties. Volunteers choose what geographic area they want to serve in. Many times our patients have given up a pet due to their illness and miss the unconditional love from a furry friend, tail wags and wet noses! Advocate Hospice provides a comprehensive training and the support needed for a rewarding volunteer experience.
