Make a real difference in someone's life!

Great Lakes Caring Hospice, a leading care provider in the Midwest, is looking for compassionate volunteers willing to donate their time to provide exceptional end-of-life care to local hospice patients and their families.

Great Lakes Caring Hospice is looking for pet therapy volunteers. A visit from a therapy dog can be so therapeutic. Terminally ill patients enjoy the extra attention and unconditional love they feel from a 4 legged companion. In order to volunteer and visit patients, you must have your own dog who is certified through TDI, Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs or West Michigan Therapy Dogs Inc.

Volunteer hours are very flexible. Volunteer hours can be completed during weekdays, evenings or weekends.

For more information, contact Michelle @ 800-379-1600 ext. 2522 or mwaters@greatlakescaring.com
