I just wanted to say that I work at a medical facility that has a visiting pet program and our patients (and staff) are SUPER appreciative of the visits.  I would push through if you can because I know the difference it makes in our patient’s lives and I think you will find it very rewarding also.

I’ve had similar experiences with groups before, where I ended up so confused and frustrated because I was just trying to do something good, and they are so unhelpful! Maybe you should just go and try it once, it might turn out be really great. You explained why this group seems like the best for you, but are there other second choices if this really doesn’t work out? I hope it does work out for you and your dog!

Agh I feel your pain.  I tried to get into the same thing with my dog and there were all these interviews and classes and rules and a FEE to volunteer.  Whaaat?  I did a bit more searching and found some other organizations, but haven’t checked them out yet.

Volunteering should be rewarding and not so frustrating!  Is there someone else you could volunteer for (for the same thing)?  I know that where I used to work if you contacted the specific lodge that the rec. coordinator would get you set up and you could just bring your dog into visit.
