Is Your Dog Itching to Make a Difference?

Your certified pet can help hospice patients!

Volunteering for Unity Hospice is very flexible!

Many locations and times available
Your dog needs to be certified through one of many
different organizations. We can help you find an organization
if your dog is not certified at the present time.

Hospice is about living and celebrating life, and making sure patients and their families receive love and support - from staff, from volunteers, and from friendly pets!

Our volunteers receive extensive training to work in hospice, and will need a fingerprinting background check, tb and drug testing, and vaccine & certification records for their dogs. We'd be happy to share more information - please get in touch!
