Fosters Wanted for Dogs and Cats of Hospice Patients

Transitions Pet Care


In order to serve the pets of people facing the end of life, we need foster homes for dogs and cats. Transitions Pet Care will pay for the vet appointments, grooming, and medications. We just ask that the foster parents pay for food, treats, and litter. Ideally, you'll be able to commit to the entire time it takes for the pet to be adopted. This can be weeks or months. The ideal foster parent is one who is patient, compassionate, experienced with dogs and/or cats, and willing to provide loving care to these pets which includes daily walks for dogs. You can learn more about our organization and complete our foster application, please visit us at www.TransitionsPetCare.Org.

Mission Statement

Transitions Pet Care's mission is to provide pet care and re-homing services for the pets of people facing the end of life.


We provide pet care such as dog walking, litter box maintenance, and transportation to and from pet appointments so that terminally ill people can keep their pets even when they're too sick to care for them. We also work with these pet owners to identify a new home for the pet when the owner passes away. If a permanent home is not identified, the pet will go into one of our foster homes. This prevents pets from being dumped in a shelter or euthanized and enable the owner to pass away peacefully knowing their dog or cat will be cared for in a home environment.
