About


A dog can sooth the soul, in ways man has yet to master. Help ease the hearts of others, by volunteering with Grace Hospice!

Grace Hospice is currently seeking Pet Therapy Volunteers to visit patients in their own homes, or facilities. Pet therapy is a highly therapeutic tool we love to use to help our patients enjoy the remaining days of their lives, and relieve some of their stress. We have many patients love that the presence of animals, but can no longer care for one. That is where you come in!!

Pet Therapy offers a wonderful experience for the patient, therapy dog, and volunteer (therapy dog handler). Are you currently certified? Great! Are you looking to become certified? No problem! We can help steer you in the right direction, either way, in order to join our volunteer team!

If you would like more information, please contact Heather Stewart through this ad or submit a volunteer application online, at www.ghospice.com. I look forward to hearing from you!!
