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 Chicagoland 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. Symptoms such as anxiety and even pain can be redirected with a friendly canine visit. Pet visits stimulate long term memory support and add to the quality of life at the end of life. You are needed!
Dogs must be certified through Delta 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, physical, drug screen and criminal background check provided at no charge.
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!
