About

Volunteers with their therapy dogs visit hospital patients providing a time of conversation, comfort and diversion. Pets must have Therapeutic Dogs International (TDI) certification and up to date vaccines and health checks.

Hospital experience is not necessary but owner and pet must feel comfortable in a health care setting.

Owners receive TB screening, flu shot and criminal back ground check which is offered at no cost to the volunteer. Volunteers enjoy free self and valet parking. Volunteer jackets are purchased through the volunteer services department for $22.
