Do you love animals? Would you like to spend time with animals as they heal from owner loss? Become an animal care provider in our shelter or in your home 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 patients facing terminal 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 animals going through transitions that need a short time in good care to heal from owner loss, or when an owner gets caught up with care needs from unintentional neglect. Once this necessary healing occurs, HPA works with other community organizations (such as Greenhill Humane Society) to get them into the adoption system to find new forever homes.
We are looking for adults to provide animal care in our temporary shelter: feed, clean cages and socialize a few cats or dogs, about 1-2 hours a week. Or, provide care in your home as a foster provider.. No experience necessary, we will train. You should be comfortable around and gentle with animals.
