Hospice Volunteers provide companionship to people living with life-limiting illness. As a Pet Therapy Volunteer, you and your pet can bring joy to fellow animal lovers that may not be able to get out or care for a pet of their own. Pets in this program must have evidence of completion of obedience training, as well as up-to-date shot records. Whether you have a few hours a week or month, any amount that you can give is a gift! Interim Hospice of Zanesville serves Muskingum, Perry, and Morgan Counties in Ohio.
