A Hospice Patient Visit with your Certified Pet

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: VITAS Healthcare of Dade

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 190 people are interested

VITAS invites friendly and well-behaved pets to join the Paw Pals SM program, in which animals and their humans learn how to visit patients at the end of their life. A registered VITAS Paw Pals SM visitor can offer comfort, bring back memories, encourage activity and provide unconditional love to VITAS patients. Your visits leave behind memories of you and your pet, and rekindle thoughts of other pets.

Pet visits can sometimes reach a patient when no one else can. Our Paw Pals SM brightens the day for everyone when they visit.

All kinds of pets are invited to join the VITAS Paw Pals Club.

Paw Pals SM must be well-groomed, at least one- year old, and have up-to-date health records.
