Do you have a certified therapy dog and are looking to make a difference in someone's life? LightBridge Hospice has the perfect opportunity for you!

Animal visits not only bring joy and happiness, but research has shown that interactions can decrease isolation and depression, reduce the symptoms of anxiety, improve pain, stabilize blood pressure, even improve cardiovascular health and sleep.

We are looking for Pet Therapy Volunteers who are interested in visiting hospice patients in San Diego County. You will be able to make your own schedule and availability. Valid animal therapy certifications will be required.

We hope you and you're furry friend will join the LightBridge team and bring joy to hospice patients in San Diego.
