Beloved Hospice of Northwest Ohio therapy dog retires

Press Staff Writer

        After providing love and comfort to hundreds of families over the past seven years, Hospice of Northwest Ohio’s therapy dog, Juno, is retiring.
        Juno will live out his “senior” years in the home of Paul and Nancy Jomantas, whose gifts of time and money have made Juno’s service at hospice possible.
        “While we will miss Juno’s presence at the Perrysburg Hospice Center, we are so happy to be able to allow him this time to ‘be a regular dog’ in a loving home,” said Hospice President and CEO Judy Seibenick. “We are grateful to Paul and Nancy for everything they have done to facilitate Juno’s time with us.”
        Juno joined the Hospice of Northwest Ohio team in the spring of 2012. Specially trained by the Assistance Dogs for Achieving Independence, Juno quickly became the most sought-after member of the care team.
        Hospice staff and volunteers whose dogs have successfully undergone an evaluation will continue to visit and bring comfort to patients in Hospice of Northwest Ohio hospice centers and at nursing facilities.
        Hospice of Northwest Ohio provides specialized medical, emotional and spiritual care to people of all ages – living with any end-stage illness – in Northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan. To learn more, visit
