The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
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 Iron 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 email@example.com or call our office at (573) 705-3475. We cannot wait to start this fulfilling adventure with you!
