Do you have a dog? Is your dog friendly and do they like "pets" from people? We would love for you to join our team and take your dog to visit hospice patients!
No certification is needed. Dogs will need to be up to date on their shots and their owners will need to complete a background check and TB tests (at our cost).
We will provide training. We try to have you visit close to your home- free parking- mileage reimbursement is provided. Transportation is necessary.
Each assignment has their own rules and regulations regarding covid-19, that all volunteers must follow.
Our volunteers are important to our team and patients so we will respect your schedule.
Join us and make memories that last a life time!
