ORGANIZATION: Grace Hospice of Milwaukee

  • 1 person is interested
Volunteer & Patient Pet Therapy

Is your beloved four-legged companion a licensed pet therapy dog?

Are you interested in sharing your pet's unique gifts to comfort and bring joy to hospice patients?

The unconditional love of an animal is so beautiful and does miracles in bringing joy, companionship, and help alleviate pain and anxiety.

If you have a pet who has gone through the process of being a License Pet Therapy animal and you and your friend have just a few hours a week to bring joy to our patients, we would love to have you on our team!

Your pet will have to provide:

  • License from an accredited pet therapy program
  • Proof of all up to date vaccines
  • Proof of annual pet license

They will also have to:

  • Be comfortable in homes and facility settings
  • Be comfortable being petted
  • Stay calm for a period of time

As a Pet Therapy Volunteer, you will provide needed comfort and companionship by sharing your therapy dog with Grace Hospice patients. This is done in a way that increases emotional well-being and improves the quality of life for the patients being visited, as well as the staff/family members who are caring for the patients.

All Volunteers are afforded specialized training, given Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as needed, become an integral part of the Grace Hospice care team and are provided direct support by the Volunteer Coordinator.

If you have a buddy that you would like to share, please contact the Grace Hospice Volunteer Coordinator today!
