The Pawsitive Pet Connect program of The Elizabeth Hospice supports hospice patients and their pet family members. Animals can provide meaningful companionship and comforting support to their owners during all stages of life.
For hospice patients, their pets may become particularly critical to their well-being and quality of life, yet they may find it more difficult to take care of them the way they used to, as their illness progresses.
Understanding the importance of caring for hospice patients and their families, The Elizabeth Hospice Volunteer department includes support for the "pet family members" of Elizabeth Hospice patients, in addition to the other pet services we provide, such as our Pet Therapy program.
Trained volunteers will provide direct service to pets of hospice patients, such as walking dogs, delivering pet food or other pet items, and transporting pets to the vet and grooming appointments as needed or requested.
To sign up for the "Pawsitive Pet Connect" training, or for information on other volunteer opportunities at The Elizabeth Hospice, contact the Volunteer department at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800.797.2050
