Do you have a pet that has a calm temperment, would do well in nursing homes or residences, or has successfully completed training as a Pet Therapy/Animal-Assisted Therapy pet? Animals can have a positive emotional and physiological effect on those who are ill. We would love to have you and your pet bring joy. love and fun to our hospice patients!
