Dignity Health - St. Mary Medical Center

  • 2 people are interested

Is your canine Pet Therapy Certified? If the answer is YES and you are looking for a place to share your special dog and bring joy to others on a weekly basis, I would love to hear from you. As a Pet Therapy Volunteer you and your furry friend would go to patient care floors to see who would like a visit. We will also create little baseball like calling cards for you to give to those you visit so that they can let their friends/family know who they got a visit from that day. I look forward to meeting you and your Pet Therapy Certified pal.
