We need you and your Certified Animal Companion to visit hospice patients in the Colorado Springs area. A wagging tail can make all the difference in a patient's day. Must be a certified Animal Companion, have up-to-date shots and insurance-- and of course, must be able to handle their "licker." Animal Companion "parents" must complete a background check, drug screen and two-step TB Test; possess a current driver's license and proof of insurance.
We provide an individualized program of physical, emotional and practical care for each patient, with an emphasis on pain control and symptom management.

No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
