Join our awesome group of volunteers to help pets transition to a new home. Become a foster care provider for Patient Pet Advocates, and know the joys of helping pets find love again!

Patient Pet Advocates is a non-profit organization founded by health care providers to assist 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.

Our animals are going through transitions and just need a short time in good care to heal from owner loss or neglect. Once this necessary healing occurs, PPA works with other community organizations to get them into the adoption system to find new forever homes.

  • We provide all supplies
  • You are given foster care materials
  • You open your home for a couple of weeks,
  • The pet learns to love again!
Please contact us for more information about how YOU can become a HERO for pets!
