Our pet therapy volunteers visit patients as part of the Tender Loving Canine Program.
At UC San Diego Health, everyone is welcome to volunteer. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old to apply, but no prior experience is required - just your enthusiasm and ability to perform at least 100 hours of service. Our volunteers play an integral role in assisting UC San Diego Health personnel in their activities of patient care, education and research.
You Make a Difference
Each volunteer helps make our program unique. We truly value our volunteers, knowing that they are an important part of the team at UC San Diego Health. At the same time, many of our volunteers say that their work here has been one of the most rewarding and personally fulfilling experiences.
We encourage you to join our team.
