This is a paws-itively positive experience! Our medical center is doing more with pet therapy. We are in need of someone who loves dogs and can help escorting our volunteers around the medical center. You do not have to have a certified pet therapy dog to be a coordinator for this program. You are the eyes and ears to help our volunteers with their furry friends.

This opportunity requires 1-2 hours per week. Or, if you just want to do 1-2 hours per month, that is okay as well.

Currently, dogs are scheduled Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
