We are currently looking volunteers with certified Therapy Dogs to visit with patients throughout Milwaukee and/or Waukesha area. We are able to provide a flexible schedule dependent on the handler's schedule.
These visits will be one on one with patients who will greatly benefit from a visit with a therapy dog.
Before visiting with patients all handlers will need to complete our volunteer onboarding process. A majority of this process can be completed from home at your own pace.
