Abode Hospice is looking for Volunteers with dogs to provide pet therapy to our patients. If you are interested in making a difference in someones life through providing pet therapy, please contact me! I'm looking for Therapy Dogs that are currently certified and ready to volunteer.
More and more studies are showing that positive interactions with animals give humans a type of medication without side effects, an enriched life, and a healing unlike any prescription can provide.
Interaction with dogs has been scientifically shown to:
* Reduce emotional and physical pain, boredom, anxiety
* Lift spirits and improve confidence
Abode Hospice will provide free training to any Volunteers interested along with free background checks and TB testing.
