About

Would you like to bring joy to patients and families going through the end-of-life experience? So many of us know the special bond we share with our pets. They become part of our family. So often as we move from our home to a nursing home, or assisted living community; we lose contact with our pets that have always brought us comfort and joy. Sometimes we are unable to care for our pets in our home due to health issues but still miss that special connection that was once shared.

If you have a pet that is certified in pet therapy, please consider giving the gift of companionship and joy to the patients and families we serve. All pets must be up-to-date with all of their shots and vaccinations. We have a variety of opportunities available for this very special program.
