Pet Therapy

Salus Hospice is looking for pet therapy dogs and their wonderful owners to join our team. Pets must be certified as a pet therapy animal through the Delta Society, Therapy Dogs International, PAWS, Lend a Paw Program or any organization of this caliber who tests and certifies animals for pet therapy. You will be asked to provide proof that your animal has liability insurance and is up to date on vaccinations.

Our patient's are terminally ill and in their final stages of life. As a Hospice Volunteer you will be visiting patients in their own homes and at nursing facilities. You'll be assigned to a patient as close to your home as possible. Please join our team and make a difference!

Volunteer opportunities are located throughout Orange County, with a one-time training session required at our Irvine Office.

We will work with your schedule.
