Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Gentiva Hospice


The pet therapy volunteer serves as an additional support to patients, families and caregivers by making friendly visits with his/her certified therapy animal. Visits may occur in patients home or in a professional care setting (subject to rules of the facility). Both the volunteer and the certified therapy animal provide comfort, companionship and a welcome distraction from illness. All care provided by the Pet Therapy Volunteer is outlined in the volunteer care plan and agreed upon by the Interdisiplinary Group.

PET: The majority of animals serving in this capacity will be a dog. The dog must be certified/ registered by the American Kennel Club recognized therapy dog organization. All required vaccinations must be up to date, required vaccines include Rabies and Distemper.

A copy of current certification/ registration in addition to liability insurance coverage must be maintained as well.
