VITAS invites friendly and well-behaved pets to join the Paw Pals program, in which animals and their humans learn how to visit patients at the end of their life. A registered VITAS Paw Pals visitor can offer comfort, bring back memories, encourage activity and provide unconditional love to VITAS patients. Your visits leave behind memories of you and your pet, and rekindle thoughts of other pets.

Pet visits can sometimes reach a patient when no one else can. Our Paw Pals brightens the day for everyone when they visit.

**NO THERAPY CERTIFICATION IS REQUIRED!!!**

All kinds of pets are invited to join VITAS’ Paw Pals Club.

Paw Pals must be well-groomed, at least one- year old, and have up-to-date health records.
