  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

We are recruting for certified pet therapy dogs, and cats to bring smiles to our patients! The pet therapy volunteer can brighten the day of so many patients, and their family members. The volunteer pet therapy team is required to thave their animal certified. The volunteer coordinator can assist the volunteer in finding certification programs.

Hospice Compassus provides training on how to work with people at the end of life. The volunteer provides the talent, compassion, and time. The patient assignments are made according to the volunteer's time, and location. The patient may reside either in a residence or long-term care facility.

Please contact Kathleen OConnor (215 557 7300) our volunteer coordinator who will be able to provide additional information, or answer any questions.
