pet therapy volunteers needed
Kindred hospice is looking for pet therapy volunteers who are willing to take their pets to skilled nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or memory care centers. Kindred serves people who are on hospice care but we also encourage our pet therapy volunteers to see the other residents at the facility and the administrators there are always happy when they do. We know that animals can brighten a person's day and we truly believe that our patients benefit from their pet therapy visits.
