Make a Difference as a VITAS Volunteer


We are currently looking for Paw Pal Volunteers to visit patients on hospice at VITAS Healthcare. VITAS Paw Pals 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. All kinds of pets are invited to join VITAS’ Paw Pals Program. We have many Paw Pal Volunteer opportunities available in the St. Louis, St. Charles, Franklin and Jefferson county areas.

Paw Pals must be well-groomed, well- behaved, at least one- year old, and have up-to-date health/vaccine records. For more information on this exciting opportunity, please contact Emily Jokerst at (314) 682-3400 or at
