Compassionate Care, One Day at a Time

About

Are you and your pet therapy certified? Visits from our four-legged friends are the best! They provide peace and reduce anxiety and stress to the patients we serve.

*Trainings scheduled in September! Just in time for the holidays. Contact Tammy to set up an appointment to meet. If you have not been certified with your pet as a pet-therapy team, please contact us for local resources to get you on your way!

Hospice Care of the Northwest's program has just the right opportunities for you and your pet (as a registered pet-therapy team) to visit those who could really use it. You and your animal buddy will visit with patients on a weekly basis wherever they reside - at home or in professional care settings. Many folks will recall the memories of their own pets and your visits will bring to them joy only a fur friend can bring.

We are looking for volunteers in the Multnomah, Washington and/or Clackamas areas who have completed their evaluation with a reputable therapy pet organization. You and your pet will brighten a patient's day!
