Project Details
Bring your well-manner pet to visit our hospice patients in their homes or facilities where they live.

Share your pet and be a friendly companion

  • Visit patients in facilities in an area near your school or home
  • Bring your calm, well-behaved pet to visit with patients
  • Contribute to our patients’ quality of life just by being there and sharing your pet
  • How can you benefit by being a volunteer?

  • Increase meaning and purpose in your life
  • Volunteer with your pet
  • Develop interpersonal skills
  • Feel pride in making an impact
  • Be appreciated
  • Volunteering can add years to your life.
  • A study of 10,000 people, published in the journal Health Psychology found that those who regularly volunteer are less likely to die than non-volunteers. And people who give back for the "right" reasons (e.g., to help other, not to feel better about themselves) stay alive the longest.
