About

Hospice pet therapy is SO much more than a simple visit with an animal. Animals and their handlers have the unique ability to bring transformative joy and comfort during a time when a patient's outlook on life may be at its most grim.

Hospice pet therapy, using the longstanding bond between humans and animals, brings joy, humor, unconditional love and soothing companionship to those on the end-of-life journey.
