About

Are you looking for a rewarding way to give back to the community and to others!? If so, we have the opportunity for you!

We are currently looking for Pet Therapy Volunteers in the Jefferson County area to visit with our patients.

The Pet Therapy Volunteer serves as an additional support to patients, families, and caregivers by making friendly visiits with his/ her certified therapy animal. Visits may occur in the patient's home or in a professional care setting. Both the Volunteer and the certified therapy animal provide comfort, companionship, and a welcome distraction from the illness. (Must be AKC certified)

Being a volunteer for our patients is very rewarding and will be a blessing to you, as well as the patient, and the patient's family. If you would like to participate in such a rewarding position, or would like more information, please contact Andrea Verges, Manager of Volunteer Services at andrea.verges@gentiva.com or call our office at (573) 705-3475. We cannot wait to start this fulfilling adventure with you!
