About

Certtified PET THERAPY - Are you the proud family member of a sweet, calm, loving dog, cat, bird, horse, etc., that has been certified as a Pet Therapy Pet? Would you and your pet like to put a smile on the face of someone who is ill? Visiting with a pet is very therepeutic for our patients, who have a life limiting illness. Animals provide loving, non-judgemental social support for the terminally ill. Often, the patients have had to give up their own pet to move to a nursing home or other care facility and they miss that companionship. As a team, you and your pet can bring a little bit of that back. Hospice Touch cares for patients throughout Orange County, the greater Long Beach Area, and Los Angeles. Assignments are made according to where the volunteer lives. Free Hospice Volunteer Training is typically provided in our office in Santa Ana. Assignments are mad within 10-15 miles of where the volunteer lives. All pets MUST be certified through a pet therapy organization before visiting with patients.
