Do you love animals? Would you like to help a grieving pet to heal? Become a foster care provider for Hospice Pet Advocates, and know the joys of helping pets find love again!
Hospice Pet Advocates is a non-profit organization founded by health care providers to assist hospice patients facing terminal or life-altering conditions to pre--plan for and rehome their beloved pets. In some instances, pets are abandoned by sudden death or cannot be cared for due to an unforeseen medical event, requiring immediate rescue intervention.
We have loving, healthy cats going through transitions that need a short time in good care to heal from owner loss. Once this necessary healing occurs, HPA works with other community organizations to get them into the adoption system to find new forever homes.
Hospice Pet Advocates is doing many great things to help the community - but we need your help! If you can open your heart and home for a short time to help a grieving animal, please contact us for more information about how YOU can become a HERO for pets!
