We are looking for a few friendly volunteers and their special four-legged friends, who have been certified by Therapy Dogs International or Pet Partners, to make weekly visits. Our patients, who are at the end of life's journey, would LOVE to spend a little time with your pet! Volunteers visit patients in their homes or elder-care facilities all over the DFW area. Volunteers are matched to patients near them.
Direct patient training is provided (for the human volunteer) in our Flower Mound office. The next training will take place in the summer of 2017. Date will be determined in May.
