About

VITAS Healthcare(r) is looking for volunteers who can lick away loneliness or cuddle in a lap.

VITAS invites friendly and well-behaved pets (and their owners) to join the Paw Pals(r) program, in which animals and their humans learn how to visit patients at the end of life. A registered VITAS Paw Pals(r) visitor can offer comfort, bring back memories, encourage activity and provide unconditional love to VITAS patients.

Research shows that pet visits can sometimes reach a patient when no one else can. Paw Pals(r) brighten the day for everyone when they visit.

Paw Pals(r) must be well-groomed and have up-to-date health records. For more information on VITAS’ Paw Pals(r) program, contact LuAnn Moyer, Volunteer Services Manager at 321.752.2530 or luann.moyer@vitas.com
