Hospice of Michigan is currently seeking volunteers who wish to visit patients and families along with their pet, in the Armada, MI area. Interaction with our canine friends can be healing, can be comforting and can give much needed stress relief to a patient and family. It is rewarding for you too! We invite you to share your love and joy for your pet with a patient and family, please contact us. We would love to meet you and your pet!
Requirements: Pets need to be at least one year old and be current on all vaccinations. A Veterinarian must sign off on your pet participating in volunteering.
What kind of pets are welcome? Dogs do not have to be therapy certified, as long as they meet the above requirements, and demonstrate suitable temprament and behavior in their "interview."
How often would you two volunteer? You can accept the assignments that work for you; whether that is once a week or once a month.
What type of training is required? All of our volunteers must complete an application, background check, in person interview (with your pet! :)) fingerprinting, TB Test, and a 6 hour training session.
