I can't begin to tell you the pure JOY your dog can bring to the day of a patient in hospice care. Your dog should be very friendly, easygoing, well-trained and able to handle groups of people. They should also have a soft mouth ( takes treats easily) and enjoy meeting new people and getting pets from strangers. Your dog DOES NOT have to be a certified therapy dog. These visits can be just as rewarding to you and your dog as they are to our patients. Your pup will receive A LOT of love from our patients!

The primary focus of hospice care is quality of life through comfort, dignity and understanding. Volunteers can make a difference in someone's life by simply providing pet companionship in as little as 15 minutes. This is a meaningful and life-changing opportunity. Some patients do not like companionship but the minute a dog or cat comes in the room is an entirely different story. At times patients will only respond to pet visitors.

Individual Training is available near you upon request. Volunteers do not administer medications or perform any nursing duties. Training, background checks and a two-step TB test ( provided by Crossroads) are required and provided.

About Crossroads Hospice

Mission Statement

Crossroads is committed to being at the forefront of the hospice care industry, to continually shape the way palliative care is viewed and administered so that everyone can expect more from us.


Expect More From Us. We Do. Why not? That's a questions we ask ourselves every day. In fact it is the question responsible for our beginning and has made us what we are today. Because "why not?" helps us find new and better ways to deliver hospice care to patients, families, caregivers and health care professionals alike. It helps us connect with our communities, share our knowledge, be accessible 24/7, innovate, lead and raise the bar. In fact, "why not?" has helped us create a hospice experience we believe is second to none...and are confident you'll agreee.
