About

Crossroads Hospice is looking for big hearts and big paws to bring smiles to our patients. Registered pet therapy teams and friendly, well-socialized pets are encouraged to apply! Certification is not required, but up-to-date vaccinations records are.

Be a part of our dedicated team of volunteers who help provide extra love and comfort to terminally ill patients and their families. Volunteers visit patients in their homes or local nursing homes. Pet visitors have a profound impact on the patients they meet, bringing smiles to their faces and helping to lift their spirits!

You decide how much time you can devote and we can match your interests and schedule. Volunteer training is required.

Contact Gretchen Eagle for more information. Gretchen.eagle@crossroadshospice.com or (513)786-3752.
