About

Is your pet a "Therapy Dog International" or "Pet Partner" registered animal? We would love to train you to visit hospice patients who reside in nursing home/assisted living facilities with your special pet.

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 those experiencing physical or mental issues .

Please consider Heartland Hospice as your Volunteer choice.
