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.
Do you have a pet that has a calm temperment, would do well in nursing homes or residences, or has successfully completed training as a Pet Therapy/Animal-Assisted Therapy pet? Animals can have a positive emotional and physiological effect on those who are ill. We would love to have you and your pet bring joy. love and fun to our hospice patients! Pets must have current shots; they do not have to be certified as a pet-therapy animal.
