  • 7 people are interested

There are so many hospice patients that will benefit from you and your certified pet's loving presence. Consider bringing your compassionate heart and loving pet to visit hospice patients in your community. We need more certified cats, dogs, rabbits and any certified pet that would bring comfort to a hospice patient.
The next volunteer training is scheduled for May 2nd, 3rd, and 9th for approximately 21 hours of training.

The majority of our patients live in an assisted living setting where they would benefit from your pet-assisted companionship. Pet visits often stimulate beautiful memories of a sweet relationship with a beloved pet, promote tender life stories, and bring comfort at this most intimate and sacred time.

Spend 2 hours a week visiting a patient in your community. We serve patients and families throughout the Portland metro area -- Portland, Gresham, Sandy, Oregon City, Tigard, Hillsboro, Beaverton, St Helen's, Wilsonville, Newberg, Salem. We assign you and your pet to visit a patient in your community.

Our volunteer training is comprised of 3 sessions for approximately 21 hours of training, Due to the Covid 19 pandemic our May training dates have been cancelled. We will schedule the next training to occur later in the year once we are cleared to gather safely . For a complete volunteer job description, application packet, and additional information about volunteering contact Michele Fuchs, Signature Hospice Volunteer Coordinator, 503-924-8922,,

Mission Statement

To enhance the life of every person we serve.



Signature Hospice provides an individualized program of physical, emotional, spiritual, and practical care for people in the last phases of a life-limiting illness, with an emphasis on control of pain and other symptoms. The program is reflective of a spirit and idea of caring that emphasizes comfort and dignity for the dying, making it possible for them to remain independent for as long as possible, and in familiar surroundings.


SIGNATURE HOSPICE affirms life. Signature Hospice exists to provide support and care for persons in the last phases of a life-limiting illness so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible. We do the little things that make a big difference. We believe every little thing we do, can and will make a difference in the lives of our patients and their families.

Signature Hospice believes that providing care for a terminal patient is a sacred and honored opportunity to help people live as fully as possible while embracing the demands of terminal illness.
