Project Details

Brookdale Hospice is seeking Animal Companions to visit our hospice patients in the Colorado Springs area. As you know, a wagging tail can make all the difference in a patient's day. Must be a certified Animal Companion, have up-to-date shots and insurance-- and of course, must be able to handle their "licker." Animal Companion "parents" must complete a background check, drug screen and two-step TB Test.

Brookdale Hospice provides an individualized program of physical, emotional and practical care for each patient, with an emphasis on pain control and symptom management.
