Is your pet a "Therapy Dog International" or "Pet Partner" registered animal? We would love to train you to visit hospice patients with your special pet who reside in nursing home/assisted living facilities within your area.
Pet therapy builds on the pre-existing human-animal bond. Interacting with a friendly pet can help release endorphons that produce a calming effect for our patients. Animals bring joy and comfort, and can help to relax those experiencing physical or mental issues .
Please consider Heartland Hospice as your Volunteer choice, and contact us today! We work with your schedule!
