Carris Health — Canine Care for the Journey

Man’s Best Friend At Your Side

Hospice patients often receive great enjoyment, comfort, support and companionship from a therapy dog. Therapy dog visits may reduce loneliness, offer entertainment and distraction, and provide a welcome change from routine. Rice Hospice is the only hospice program in the area to offer the services of canine volunteers.

If you and your dog would like to become Rice Hospice Volunteers, please contact our Rice Hospice volunteer coordinator.
