Pathways Home Health and Hospice has a very active volunteer program. Currently we are looking for individuals to visit our patients in facilities with their pets! To determine if Pathways Pet Assisted Activities is right for you and your pet, ask yourself these questions.

Does my pet have the right temperment to work with Hospice patients? Is he/she calm, gentle, alert and has a stable temperment?

Can my pet follow basic commands?

Can I invest the time in taking a pet assisted activities training and certification course?

If so please contact us!

Patients benefit from this program by showing improved self esteem, reduced stress, improved mood, lower blood pressure, and an increse in social interacting and mental stimulation.

We work with volunteers to place you and your pet on assignments near your home, so travel to the Oakland office is not necessary to volunteer!
