Pet Therapy

Make a real difference in someone's life!

Elara Caring, a leading care provider in the Midwest, is looking for compassionate volunteers willing to donate their time to provide exceptional end of life care to local hospice patients and their families.

Elara Caring is looking for Pet Therapy volunteers (handlers with dogs only). A visit from a therapy dog can be so beneficial. Terminally ill patients enjoy the extra attention and unconditional love they feel from a four-legged companion. In order to volunteer and visit patients, you must have your own dog who is already cerfied through Therapy Dogs International, West Michigan Therapy Dogs or Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs.

Hours are flexible, weekdays, evenings or weekends. Dog/Handler teams typically visit patients 1-2 times per month.

For more information, contact Cheryl at 800-379-1600 or ckarasek@greatlakescaring.com

Volunteer must have his/her own certified Therapy Dog. Handler must be able to provide dog's health record, Therapy certification and certificate of liability insurance policy.
