Hartford Hospital is in need of pet therapy teams to provide caring and uplifting interactions with patients, visitors and staff. Teams must have a pet therapy certification to apply.
Volunteer Services staff will work with owners to determine the best placement for volunteer shifts based on interest, availability and comfort level of the team. Options for placement include visiting admitted patients, out-patient cancer centers (Hartford, Avon or Manchester), or the Institute of Living adult, adolescent or children's programs.
Shifts are available 7 days a week and can start as early as 7:00 a.m. and end as late as 8:00 p.m.
We hope you will consider sharing your time and your canine companion at Hartford Hospital!
