Residential Hospice is looking for volunteers with certified pet therapy dogs to visit our patients on Hospice care. Hospice pet therapy utilizes the natural bond between humans and animals to bring joy, humor, love, and companionship to those on the end-of-life journey. Pet therapy benefits patients by giving them reduced feelings of loneliness and anxiety and also encourages patients to socialize. As a volunteer you have the chance to witness the amazing impact a dog can have on the lives of others. This opportunity also gives your dog important work to do, where it will receive lots of loving attention.

*Must have certified pet therapy dog
