Pet Therapy Volunteer
Please visit the new page to apply.
Hospice pet therapy is so much more than a simple visit with an animal. Animals and their handlers have the unique ability to bring transformative joy and comfort during a time when your outlook on life may be at it's most grim. Hospice pet therapy, using the longstanding bond between humans and animals, brings joy, humor and unconditional love and soothing companionship to those on the end-of-life journey.
