There are so many hospice patients that will benefit from you and your certified pet therapy 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 August 21st, 28th, and 29th 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 2-4 hours a week visiting patients in your community. We serve patients and families throughout the Portland and Salem areas -- Portland, Gresham, Sandy, Oregon City, Tigard, Hillsboro, Beaverton, St Helen's, Wilsonville, Newberg, Woodburn, Keizer, Salem. We assign you and your pet to visit a patient in your community.

The next volunteer training is scheduled for August 21st, 28th, and 29th for approximately 21 hours of training. For a complete volunteer job description, application packet, and additional information about volunteering contact Michele Fuchs, Signature Hospice Volunteer Coordinator, 503-924-8922, mfuchs@4signatureservice.com, https://signaturehch.com.
