About

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

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

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