About

Volunteers are the HEART of Heartland Hospice! We are looking for more pet therapy teams to join our growing team of amazing volunteers! Therapy dogs and their handlers enrich the lives of our patients by providing companionship and providing meaningful activities through regular visits. Service hours are flexible and scheduled according to your availability and location. Volunteers and their four pawed companions have the power to bring the greatest gifts to our patients’ lives... a smile and reassurance that comes with knowing they are genuinely cared for! If you have a canine with a big heart who spreads joy wherever she/he goes, this is the opportunity for you! All dogs must be pet therapy certified
