Visit Hospice Patients With Your Pet!
Would you and your loving pet like to bring joy to someone in need? We would love for both of you join our team of committed and compassionate volunteers!
Volunteers visit with hospice patients to provide companionship and to simply brighten their patients' day. What better way to make an impact on members of your community than with your tail-wagging friend?
You decide how much time you can give a month; we will match your interests and schedule. Your pet does not have to be therapy certified, but they must be well behaved and current on their vaccines.
We work all over Northeast Ohio, going to wherever our patient calls home (private house/apartment, nursing home, assisted living facility). We strive to keep our volunteers within a 15 minute drive from the patient(s) they visit - so you can volunteer right in your local community!
We'll work with your schedule.
