Many patients at home, in skilled nursing facilities, and in assisted living settings take comfort in the unconditional love offered by an animal. Compassus Hospice is looking for individuals who are interested in sharing the gift of pet therapy. In order to take a pet on a visit, the volunteer will need a short orientation/ training and the appropriate certification for your pet. If you are interested in your pet becoming certified and they are not yet, we can make the appropriate connections to get you started !
We treasure the generosity of our volunteers and their presence in the lives of those we serve. Volunteers are truly special people and also vital members of our clinical team. We look forward to our volunteers joining together with us to improve the quality of life for our patients and our families.
Our schedules are flexible and we welcome you to volunteer as often as you wish; any time you give is gratefully appreciated. Pet therapy volunteer opportunities are available throughout Massachusetts.
