Is Your Dog Itching to Make a Difference? Do you want to be a volunteer but wish you could take your furry baby with you?

The way a dog loves unconditionally makes such a difference to our patients and the community that we serve. Whether it is to help with emotional or physical health, or just to bring smiles, it makes the life of a hospice patient more comfortable and meaningful.

Our office provides care to patients in seventeen counties in Northern Illinois. We provide a wide variety of opportunities and meet you where you are! Our volunteers give their time as they are able and we create a volunteer schedule with you based on your availability.

* If your dog isn't certified but you want to volunteer, please let us know and we can discuss how to get the certification completed. Therapy dogs are certified to be fit with all immunizations up to date and have also been certified by the AKC Canine Good Citizen Program or other appropriate accrediting agency (Therapy Dogs Inc., Therapy Dogs International, etc.)

Please feel free to contact us, even if you're unsure this is the right fit for you! Let's talk about what meets your needs and has an impact on the people who need your time and talents.
