Animals are a great source of companionship for a person experiencing a terminal illness. They seem to know a persons needs better than they do themselves. Faith Hospice is seeking certified pet therapy volunteers who can provide visits to our patients in the Grand Rapids area. Scheduling is flexible and can be set to the volunteer’s personal calendar. You may contact us at (616) 356-4859. www.faithhospicecare.org

Some agencies to get your dog certified are:

Alliance for Therapy Dogs

Therapy Dogs International

West Michigan Therapy Dogs
