United Volunteers are dedicated to a high-quality patient experience. Your support helps provide the finest possible care and service to our patients, families, and visitors. Additionally, our pet therapy volunteer teams give comfort and support in the unique form of a furry face and wagging tail.

As a pet therapy volunteer team, you will "round" different units and waiting areas of the Hospital, with emphasis on inpatient rehab and mental health units. You and your pooch will take part in group activity and individual visits which will be given to you at the start of each shift.

What our staff say about our pet therapy volunteers:

Sarah's comforting spirit, intuitive nature, and friendly demeanor is truly a gift for patients and staff alike."
