Friendly Pet Visitor
Petting a friendly dog can be comforting, help with reminiscing, even decrease feelings of loneliness and depression. Spending time with an affectionate dog can also bring a sense of normalcy to hospice patients and their families.

The following is required for all Friendly Pets:
- Current record of immunization shots;
- Volunteer manager must meet pet to determine dog's demeanor; and
- All dogs must have have a certificate of completion of training and success in obedience training.
