Lift spirits with loving companions!

Dogs, cats, gerbils, hamsters, ponies, pigs...

Trained volunteers and their pets visit our patients -- bringing joy, warmth and companionship to help brighten the last days of their lives. Pet visits can bring our patients a sense of peace and trust, and help to relieve stress. The emotional benefits of pet visits continue long after the visit is over!

Dogs must have passed obedience training and be certified by a Pet Companionship Program, such as Therapy Dogs International, or a comparable program (many qualifying programs are listed on the American Kennel Club’s website).

Requirements & Commitment

  • Driver's License Needed
  • Background Check
  • Must be at least 18 or older
  • Orientation or Training
  • Minimum of 1-2 hours per week
Even an hour a week can provide a great deal of comfort and care to our patients and families. All necessary precautions are made to ensure safe visits.
