Hospice Pet Therapy

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Providence SoundHomeCare and Hospice


Pet Therapy is a visit or series of visits from a Pet Therapy team (a handler and their animal) to a patient or family who has requested them through their hospice care team. The simple act of petting an animal can trigger the release of beneficial hormones that enhance mood.

These visits are intended to:

  • Alleviate stress and feelings of isolation.
  • Provide opportunities for reminiscing and sharing stories about their own pets.

Pet Therapy teams must be certified through an accepted organization. If you aren’t already certified, we are happy to provide information on the process!
