McLaren Hospice is looking for dedicated individuals who would like to make a difference in the lives of patients that are being faced with advanced illness. Training is provided and no medical knowledge is necessary.
We are seeking volunteers who have experience with dogs and/or cats, perhaps with a rescue or similar organization. Volunteers would be asked to help with the care of hospice patient's pets.

McLaren Hospice is an end of life program that provides care and comfort to a patient and their family, including the four legged members. Our goal is to assist patients to keep their pet by their side as long as they desire.
