Aseracare Hospice is seeking available volunteers who specialize in sharing their trained pet with our patients. Our focus is on encouraging and enhancing patient interactions with your certified pet. The tactile sense of comfort brought on with the soft fur and petting provides our patients with peace and comfort that only a pet can provide. Pet therapy can reach our non verbal patients and provide a calming feeling. If you and your pet are willing to give your time please contact our volunteer coordinator at 920-339-9065.
