Serenity Hospice & Palliative Care is looking for compassionate volunteers, and their furry friends, willing to donate their time to provide exceptional end-of-life care to patients and their families.

Serenity Hospice invites certified, friendly, and well-behaved pets (not just dogs!!) ~ and their humans to join our team of volunteers. Terminally ill patients enjoy the attention and unconditional love they feel from a four-legged friend... Pet visits can sometimes reach a patient in a way no one else can.

Hours and days are flexible ~ we are happy to work around your schedule, and starting with just 1 visit per week you can make all the difference in the world!

For more information, please contact Kathy Coffman, Volunteer Coordinator at 602.216.2273; or email: k.coffman@serenityhospiceaz.com.

Thank you for all you do, it is truly appreciated, and I look forward to hearing from you soon!!
