Handlers and their pets are invited to visit patients and their families throughout the hospital. Most common areas that receive pet visits are inpatient floors, surgery areas, select waiting rooms, and specialty units. Animal visits are social in nature and offer patients and families the benefits of human to animal interactions.
We offer flexible shifts & are glad to work with your schedule. Typically, volunteer shifts are once a week for 2 hours (depending on need & pet’s stamina).
