Pet Pal volunteers bring their furry best friend to visit hospice patients in private homes or nursing and assisted living facilities. Provide pet companionship to people who may no longer be able to care for pets. Pets (and volunteers) need to be comfortable with new environments, crowds, and loud noises.

Pets can include:

  • Dogs
  • Cats
  • Other small, well-trained animals (please inquire)

ALL volunteers must:
  • complete a volunteer application & training
  • pass a background check
  • have a valid driver's license

ALL pets MUST be up to date on their shots. You will be asked to provide shot records. Therapy, emotional support, and service animals are welcome!
