ORGANIZATION: Corporal Michael J. Crescenz Veterans Affairs Medical Center

  • 69 people are interested

Volunteers and their 4-legged companions are needed to make friendly visits to our nation's heroes at the Corporal Michael J. Crescenz Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Dogs must be certified through an accredited organization, but not limited to Therapy Dogs International, Pals for Life, etc. Volunteers will need to complete a volunteer application, background check, interview, and orientation as well as provide up-to-date records for their dog.

This is a great opportunity to come in, visit the men and women who have served our country, and see them smile with your furry friends.

Days and hours are flexible. We know the dogs can handle about one (1) hour for a visit. Your time will be worth it.
