Pet Visitation

As an animal lover and owner, you might want to consider bringing your pet to Riverview to visit with patients and residents. Pet volunteers are matched with a specific unit to offer supervised pet visits. There is nothing as satisfying as seeing the happiness that pets can bring to people! 

As the pet’s owner, you are required to submit the most recent vaccination report and ensure that your pet is well behaved and comfortable around people.

Volunteer opportunities are available during the day, Monday to Friday.
