About

Hospice work provides a wonderful opportunity to share time with individuals who are in their final stages of life. People are accepted into a hospice program if they are terminally ill and have less than six months to live. They are often placed in a hospital or nursing home setting but some do live at home. Many of the patients are alone or have limited visitors. A bit of love from your Therapy Pet can really make their entire day.

Our patients benefit greatly from visits from Therapy Pets. If your dog is certified, or has a Good Canine Citizenship certification, this is a wonderful way for you both to get involved in the community. The smiles that you and your pet bring to patients and families is a gift beyond measure.

We are seeking Pet volunteers in our two Hospice Houses located in Temple Terrace or Sun City Center. Schedules are completely flexible and available 7 days a week. If you are interested - please fill out an online application at www.ChaptersHealth.org located under the VOLUNTEER tab.

We look forward to having you and your four legged friend join our Volunteer team.
