Comfort & Companionship When It’s Needed Most
This groundbreaking national program enables hospice patients to keep their pets at home with them throughout their end-of-life journey.
For many in hospice care, changes in their physical condition lead to a decrease of previously enjoyed social opportunities and relationships. Their pets offer unconditional love, acceptance, comfort and companionship when it’s needed most – the time when friends and family aren’t seen as frequently or when words are too hard to say.
Pet Peace of Mind provides helping hands and financial assistance so that caring volunteers are able to help patients with pet care needs. With this loving support, patients are able to complete their end-of-life journey without worrying about their pet’s current or future needs.
WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
We’re looking for people who care about the quality of life of terminally-ill persons and their families by providing care for their beloved pets at a time when they are least able to care for them. Walking, supplying food, and pet sitting are just a few of the things PPOM volunteers will do.
Sponsors of PPOM will be asked to provide either discounted or donated food, supplies and/or services. Pet supply establishments, veterinarians, groomers, kennels, along with any and all pet-related suppliers are eligible to become sponsors. Your practice or business will be recognized in publication as being a sponsor.
Make a Gift
This PPOM program meets an important need in the lives of hospice patients. Funds are needed daily to help provide food, medications, and grooming for the patient’s beloved pet. Your contribution will help maintain the important bond between patients and their pets.
