Pet Therapy at bedside

Pet therapy has been proven to increase pain tolerance, reduce stress and lower blood pressure. Heartland Hospice is seeking compassionate individuals with certified Therapy Pets (TDI- Therapy Dogs International or Pet Partners) to visit our hospice patients. Interacting with a friendly animal brings lots of joys and smiles to our patients.

Benefits of volunteering:

  • Flexible schedules- You are able to pick your own schedule and volunteer as little or as often as you would like
  • Learn new skills
  • Meet new people
  • Make a difference
  • Rewarding- Gives more than it takes
  • Healthy for you- Long-term volunteers have longer lives, less disease and better overall health

**PLEASE NOTE** The location given is Heartland Hospice office location for Orange. It is not the location where services are provided. Our patients live throughout Orange County in many facilities and homes. **
