Do you have a special registered therapy dog? Do you have one or two days a month to share smiles and joy with those at end of life? If so, we need you!

We are looking for more kindhearted individuals and their special dogs who are interested in volunteering an hour, once or twice a month, with a hospice patients. We offer visit flexibility, fitting your schedule, our teams visit patients in their homes and area facilities. Our therapy dog teams can also be involved in local events and education.

We are looking for therapy dog teams able to offer a small amount of time to give someone a break in their daily routing, help increase their overall emotional well-being, and to bring happiness and socialization to their day. As a therapy dog volunteer team, you have likely experienced this.

Our hopes are that with the help of therapy dog volunteers we can add a laugh, a smile, and a friendly face to the lives of those we serve.

We invite you to join our team of exceptional volunteers.

About ViaQuest Hospice

Mission Statement

It’s hard to know where to turn for help when facing a serious illness. ViaQuest can improve the quality of life for those living with chronic and terminal diseases and conditions. These diseases slowly decrease an individual’s ability to live life to its fullest. There comes a time when seeking a cure may no longer be possible or in one’s best interest and the focus turns to quality of life. When that happens ViaQuest Hospice may be the answer. Our care is not focused on the disease, but on pain relief and symptom control, making it easier for you to keep your focus where it should be - on living more fully. Our core services are at the heart of what we do. We are experts in providing high-quality, cost-effective home health, hospice, and behavioral health care that goes beyond just service. We also specialize in caring for individuals with developmental disabilities, offering innovative services that help people live their best lives possible.
