The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Are you looking for a new volunteer opportunity for your Certified Pet Therapy Dog? You would never know how much these pet therapy visits impact the lives of those on hospice until you witness this first hand.
There is an unspoken connection between the animal and hospice patient which is amazing to experience. These visits are very meaningful to our patients. Our goal is to make a difference in the lives of our patients and their families and to treat each patient as we would our own family member.
For many, their illness has forced them to give up their own pet, or the change in their living arrangement no longer permits them to have one. As an animal lover, I am sure you will understand the heart-break that can cause. You sharing your beloved furry friend can help, and give the wonderful feeling of companionship back to them.
I welcome you to join our team, and bring this joy back to our hospice patients.
