Bring a smile to a hospice patient with the unconditional love from your dog. Therapy dogs are welcome visitors to our patients.
Kindred Hospice serves hospice patients throughout Central Ohio, and volunteers improve the quality of life of patients through visits, often with their therapy dogs.
Therapy dogs must have successfully completed obedience and therapy dog classes, and their owners must complete the Kindred volunteer training before visiting patients.
Volunteer orientation sessions are offered each month, daytime and evening. Call (614.414.0500) or email for more information or to register.
