Hospice Assisted Animal Volunteer Opportunities!

ORGANIZATION: Transitions Care

  • 1 person is interested

Animal Assisted Volunteers make loving companions for our hospice patients. Animal Assisted Volunteers provide companionship and therapeutic support to patients who love animals. Animals must always be accompanied by their human handler and will only visit those patients who have agreed to animal-assisted volunteer visits.

Before bringing a pet to visit a patient, handlers must first complete the volunteer application and training program to become a Companion Volunteer. After that, they may apply to begin bringing their pet as a part of their volunteerism. All animal/handler terms must have documentation and registration with a recognized pet therapy organization, liability insurance and all appropriate vaccines. In order to make visits, animals must be in good health and well-groomed.
