About

It's been proven that animal therapy can work wonders on stress, anxiety and depression. We are looking for a team of trained, certified pet therapists to visit with patients, staff and families at one or all of our hospice locations. Specifically, we are looking to fill spots at our Sioux Falls, South Dakota Hospice Cottages, Worthington, MN Hospice Cottages and Ava's House in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Pet Therapy animals must be certified through Therapy Dogs International, Pet Partners or nationally recognize organization. Once certified, therapy pets may visit on an as needed or scheduled basis.
