AccentCare Hospice of Miami is seeking compassionate and caring individuals with certified pets to support our families. Loyal Friends Pet Team volunteers share their dogs unconditional love with patients and families who could benefit from some animal companionship. Pets and their handlers must be certified by Pet Partners or Therapy Dogs International and are required to be up to date on vaccinations. After (human) volunteers have completed orientation and training as a Direct Patient Care Volunteer and pets have a behavioral assessment by the Volunteer Department, they can make visits to patients at home, nursing facilities and our inpatient centers.

We welcome YOU to join our AccentCare Volunteer Team!
