Sanctuary Hospice is seeking individuals with their own Certified Therapy pets. Please note that Sanctuary Hospice is not a facility. The role of a therapy pet volunteer would be to make visits to the patient's location and spend an hour or more with them. This will allow the patient to experience the therapeutic relief only a therapy pet can bring.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Visit Hospice care patients living in their own homes, assisted living facilities, or skilled nursing facilities
  • Provide patients with positive interactions with an animal that will bring emotional comfort
  • Be both an engaged, compassionate visitor and responsible animal handler
Qualifications:

  • Must have a valid drivers license and auto insurance
  • Must be able to pass background check and a drug test

Mission Statement

This mission of Sanctuary Hospice is to bring hope, support and life enriching care to those who face life's end.

Description

Volunteers play a vital role in hospice care. They can provide companionship and help with activities that may enhance quality of life while bringing true joy to patients facing terminal illnesses. Volunteers are important and may help ease the burdens associated with end-of-life care for families and loved ones. While Volunteers provide companionship to patients, they can be of great support to their families. We also have other volunteer opportunities available in our programs such as, our Expressions Art Therapy, Blossoms of Love flowers, Pawsitive Pals Pet Therapy, or Music Therapy.
