Hope’s Pet Program
Pets have a special way of showing unconditional love and uplifting spirits, no matter what the circumstances. Interaction with animals can lower blood pressure, reduce stress, and ease physical or emotional pain. Hope’s volunteer pets are reviewed prior to acceptance into the pet visitor program. Whether at home, a facility, or in a Hope Care Center, volunteer pets create smiles, laughter, and peace of mind for all involved.
Help for People with Pets
We know that pets are special to the people in our care. These furry family members provide unconditional love, comfort, and companionship. But when coping with a serious illness, the physical and financial responsibilities of pet care can be challenging.
Through the generosity of our donors and grants from the community, Hope can now assist with necessary services to keep hospice patients and their pets together. We provide pet supplies, veterinary care, and help with adoptions. Visit our Pet Program blog for photos and success stories, or make a donation to support Hope’s Pet Program!
