Heartland Hospice needs Pet Visit Volunteers

Cause Areas


Fri Jan 15, 2016 - Sat Dec 31, 2016


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


Hospice pet volunteers visit patients in nursing homes, assisted living communities and private homes. Pet therapy has been shown to increase pain tolerance, reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and bring smiles to patient's faces. Owner must provide a copy of the pets updated vaccines. We do not offer training or certification for pets.

Most of our patients reside in Aventura, Sunny Isles, Miami Beach, Hialeah, Hialeah Gardens, Miami Lakes, Miami Gardens & North Miami.

Background check, TB vaccination and orientation/training all provided by Heartland Hospice
