Volunteer Dogs Provide Love and Companionship in Hospice Care

July 8, 2019 Our Stories


Molly is not even three years old, but she’s already faced more death than many adults.

She’s been volunteering at Dulcina Hospice at St. Marguerite Manor in Calgary for more than two years and has had to say goodbye to several people with whom she’s developed deep connections.

Molly is a labradoodle who comes to work with her owner, Beverly Ann Godfrey, a Registered Nurse at Dulcina Hospice. Molly joins Bev as she makes her rounds during the night shift, eagerly greeting any staff and residents she encounters.

“She’s got her certain folks that she just loves,” says Bev. “And as soon as she sees them, she’s crying and wagging her tail.”
