Do you have a special four-legged friend? We are looking for volunteers to bring that special friend to a patient's home and provide hospice patients with that special companionship they often miss.

After completing our hospice volunteer training course, you will visit patients in their homes (be that a skilled nursing facility or a free standing house) with your pet, providing companionship and friendly visits.

Pet therapy handler/dog teams are assigned to visit patients that live in their neighborhood so the burden of travel is minimal. In most situations, visiting hours are flexible and you will be able to visit patients on your schedule, when it is most convenient for you.

Visitor volunteers do NOT perform any medical or personal cares and do not transfer patients, administer any medicines, take patients to the bathroom, etc. Your job is just to visit as a friendly neighbor would!

Animals must be Pet Therapy Certified in order to qualify for this opportunity.
