Elara Caring Hospice is looking for PET THERAPY DOG volunteers who like to volunteer in the Macomb and Oakland County areas. A visit from a therapy dog can be so therapeutic. Terminally ill patients enjoy the extra attention and unconditional love they feel from a 4 legged companion.

In order to volunteer and visit patients, you must have your own dog who is certified through Therapy Dogs International or Bright and Beautiful to be a Therapy Dog.

Hours are very flexible, weekdays, evenings or weekends.

For more information, contact Elara Hospice Volunteer Coordinator @ 800-379-1600 ext. 33140 or email chickerson@elara.com.
