Our Pet Programs

With the goal of helping patients with advanced illness keep their pets at home, the pet assistance program can help with nearly all the responsibilities of pet ownership. Specially trained volunteers visit patients at home to provide care for their pet, including feeding, dog walking and litterbox changing. Volunteers deliver complimentary pet food and supplies, arrange transportation for pets to and from veterinary and grooming appointments, and provide prescription medications and flea, tick and heartworm treatments as the need is identified. Because of this program, elderly hospice patients can continue to enjoy the companionship of the animals they love, and who love them back, without worry. 

The pet therapy program is designed to keep patients calm, increase their comfort level and improve quality of life. Medical literature has noted that interacting with animals can produce remarkable results in improving the well-being of patient and family alike. Benefits cited as a result of an animal’s presence include lower blood pressure, decreased stress and anxiety, and decreased requests for pain medication. Patients are often more active and responsive during and after interacting with pets. Last year, our 37 pet teams visited patients an average of 50 hours per month.

    Meet Lady. Her owner was in our care and too ill to handle all her needs, so our pet assistance program provided her with food and exercise. When her owner died and no one could care for her, we took her in and found her a forever home! Learn more about the program and Lady's story at https://conta.cc/2NTBkw1
