Elara Caring Hospice, a leading care provider in the Midwest, is looking for compassionate volunteers willing to donate their time to provide exceptional end-of-life care to local hospice patients and their families.

Elara Caring is looking for Pet Therapy Volunteers (handlers with dogs only). A visit from a therapy dog can be so beneficial.

Volunteer must have his/her own certified Therapy Dog. Handler must be able to provide dog’s health record (current DHLPP, Bordetella, Rabies, and fecal test), therapy certification and certified of liability insurance policy.

Hours are very flexible, weekdays, evenings or weekends. Typically we as that you visit your assigned patient 1-2 hours per week or offer 1-2 hours per week or work in the office.
