1 person is interested
Pet volunteers needed for Greater Indianapolis area hospice. Do you have a dog, cat, other animal that is great with people and would like to visit hospice patients in their home or facility? Intrepid hospice is looking for you and your furry loved one! This volunteer will make visits to designated patients, write a short report of visit day, and submit it to our office. Visits can be scheduled at times determined by volunteer - during the day, evenings, or weekends. All pets must have been screened by a vet, have an updated shot record, and completed a pet therapy program. Volunteers are not required to be available to the entire Greater Indianapolis area. Volunteer may choose how far they would like to travel with their pet.
