Hospice Services at Methodist ElderCare

Pet Visitation = Smiles

If you have a 4 legged friend that is calm in nature and loving in spirit, then you can make a difference in the lives of our Seniors! We are currently looking for 4 dogs who will visit with several of our dog loving patients to build loving relationships once a week each month. Your dog must be calm in nature and enjoy touches, petting and (if you provide) tasty treats. You will be asked to bring your dog to visit hospice patients who are missing their four legged friend or who just have a nature love of dogs. We encourage all breeds but ask that the dog be 2 years or older; be calm in nature; love being around people; have current vaccinations and respond to simple commands and are well behaved. Dogs play an important part throughout our lives and your dog will provide the missing touch, that many of our patients long for.
