Would your dog be a great therapy dog? We are looking for dog-human teams to visit hospice patients and give them the gift of unconditional love. Basic obedience, veterinary screening, spay/nueter, and interview required. Human must also complete volunteer training and orientation. No medical experience necessary. This is a very rewarding opportunity as you see the joy on so many faces when you bring a dog into the patient homes, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities where many of our patients live! Orientation includes background check, TB test and drug screening.

Masks will be provided, temperature must be taken before visiting the patient and COVID-19 questionnaire must be given to patient before volunteer visit.
