About

Are you looking for a new opportunity for your Pet Therapy Dog? Grace Hospice is seeking registered TDI Pet Therapy Dogs to join our team! You would never know how much these pet therapy visits impact the lives of those on hospice until you witness this first hand. There is an unspoken connection between the animal and hospice patient which is amazing to experience. These visits are very meaningful to our patients. Our goal is to make a difference in the lives of our patients and their families and to treat each patient as we would our own family member. For many, their illness has forced them to give up their own pet, or change in their living arangement no longer permits them to have one. As an animal lover, I am sure you will understand the heart-break that can cause. You sharing your beloved furry friend can help and give that wonderful feeling of companionship back to them. I welcome you to join our team and bring back this joy to our hospice patients. Please contact us at 757-644-0180or sgettys@ghospice.com for an application packet and training information. For more information or to do the application online please go to www.ghospice.com Individual and group training available.
