Hospice Volunteer Opportunity
We are currently seeking friendly, well mannered and calm dogs to join Love On Leashes Pet Team serving hospice patients and families throughout the Chicago-land area.
Patients yearn for dog companionship. Love On Leashes provides companionship, comfort and even a few wet kisses to our terminally ill patients and families. You are needed!
Dogs must be certified through Delta Society Pet Partners or Therapy Dog International, be interviewed and possess the appropriate documentation with both the certifying agency and ours prior to patient visits.
Volunteer handlers must be 18 years or older, and complete volunteer training (self study modules),TB Testing, drug screen and criminal background check.
Opportunities are flexible and based on your own personal schedule, level of commitment and travel boundaries. Serve close to home or work. Volunteers are non-medical companions.
Pamper your dog by sharing the love. Join Love On Leashes today!
