There are many ways you can donate your time without becoming a Therapy Team.
Volunteer as a Visit Assistant, become an intern, or lend a hand during our many events!
A Visit Assistant and Ambassador is a great role if you do not have an animal suited for therapy work.
As a Visit Assistant you go to sites with Therapy Teams (handlers and their animals) and help make the visits more efficient and effective. This includes greeting patients, opening doors, handing out the animal’s business cards and more, allowing the handler to keep all focus on the animal. Serving as an Ambassador, you represent Hand in Paw at community events and health fairs to let the community know about the work of our organization.
VISIT ASSISTANT APPLICATION
We are looking for an ambitious, dog-loving intern who can help Hand in Paw by assisting with logistics and tasks related to our fundraisers and community events. You will be working closely with our Director of Events and Strategic Partnerships on Mutt Strut and Picasso Pets and will help other staff as needed.
This internship opportunity will be for January through April and requires availability up to 3 days a week.

Don’t want to assist therapy teams? That’s cool!
Becoming a general volunteer is an easy way to donate your time and energy to a great cause without going on therapy visits. Hand in Paw is in constant need of extra hands around the office and at events!
