Pet Assistance Linking Support

Are you looking to volunteer with pets and their owners in your community? Through the Pet Assistance Linking Support (PALS) program, volunteers can make a positive difference in the lives of older adults and their companion animals! 

At Benjamin Rose, we believe that everyone deserves to age well, and for many people, that includes the companionship of at pet. For many, pets are some of the most important relationships in their life. To support older adults in keeping their pets successfully at home, we are seeking compassionate volunteers to assist clients with basic pet care tasks in their homes in Cuyahoga County, then we want you to volunteer with us! All volunteers receive free training and orientation on interacting with animals and older adults. By volunteering with this program, volunteers will enhance the well-being of both pets and their owners! 

Types of pet care volunteers provide: 

  • exercising and playing
  • interacting and socializing with pets and their owners
  • helping to feed and water the pet
  • cleaning pet areas and bedding
  • cleaning up pet waste (ex., litterbox cleaning)

Join us in creating moments of joy and companionship! If you are interested in volunteering with Benjamin Rose, please fill out the interest form below. Once the form is received, we will reach out to schedule an informational interview.
