Does your pet enjoy people? Would you like to bring joy to others in a fun and simple way? VITAS Healthcare invites you and your pet to become Paw Pals and visit VITAS Healthcare patients. Pets provide friendship and show unconditional love to hospice patients. Patients who have had to give up their pets miss the interaction and devotion. Your visits leave behind memories of you and your pet, and rekindle thoughts of other pets. All kinds of pets are invited to join VITAS Healthcare Paw Pals.

VITAS Healthcare Volunteer orientation is provided free of charge to help you learn the skills required to be an outstanding VITAS Healthcare Paw Pals Volunteer. You and your pet will also need to pass a Pet Screening Session. Time and dates for both the orientation and pet screening are ongoing and flexible.

All kinds of pets are invited to join VITAS’ Paw Pals Club.

Paw Pals must be well-groomed, at least one- year old, and have up-to-date health records.
