About

Love your dog and know others would love it too? As a pet therapy visitor with hospice patients you will bring the joy and the special kind of love only an sweet animal can offer to someone who is isolated at the end of life. The power of pets to connect with others, especially those limited by dementia, amazes and touches everyone around. Let the magic happen and the smiles spread in visits that fit your schedule.

While our office is located in Westminster, we serve families and facilities around the metro area. We are one of the few local, not-for-profit, faith-based hospices in the area serving people of all beliefs and none. We provide the screening and training for those with two legs.

Your dog must be at least 1 yr. old and certified by either the Alliance of Therapy Dogs, Therapy Dogs International (TDI-dog.org) or Pet Partners (petpartners.org - includes various kinds of pets). These are NOT service dogs, but pets which have been behavior screened and insured by a reputable organization.

Be a dynamic duo for those who dearly miss the love of a furry friend and enjoy more time with your pet too. Join us and share the love!
