Project Details

Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care is currently seeking friendly, well-mannered and calm dogs, of all shapes and sizes (and their people!) to join our Loyal Friends Pet Team. These special volunteers are needed to provide companionship, comfort, and even some wet kisses to our terminally ill patients and their families. YOU are needed to help them do it!

Our opportunities are flexible and based upon your availability. Therapy pet volunteers can serve both patients and families in assisted living communities in Cherokee, Cobb, DeKalb, Forsyth, Fulton, Hall, and Gwinnett counties.

Dogs must be certified through Delta Society, Pet Partners ,or Therapy Dog International interviewed by our staff, and the appropriate documentation processed with both the certifying organization and ours, prior to visiting with patients.

Interested pet owners must attend our full volunteer training which fulfills all Medicare requirements for Volunteer Services.
