Share the love of your Pet with others! Do you have a wonderful pup that has been certified through an accredited pet therapy school? Are you caring and compassionate and have a passion for helping others? Then we would love to have you both as hospice volunteers! Certified Pet Therapy Volunteers are needed to bring smiles to the faces of our patients. A visit from a therapy dog is one of the more welcomed escapes hospice patients can experience. The simple presence of a therapy dog allows a hospice patient a reprieve from their anxieties and discomforts.
