About

Continuum Care Hospice understands the transformative powers of simply snuggling a dog or cat. That is why we are seeking individuals who have certified visiting pets to visit people who have terminal illnesses and are on hospice. As a hospice volunteer with a certified visiting pet, you will bring connection, care, and a loving attention to those who are often isolated. Let your pet be a bridge to share a smile. Hospice volunteer training is free - times and locations are flexible. Contact Monica Jones, Volunteer Coordinator, for more details.
