Notes: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 journeys without worrying about their pet’s current or future needs. Pet Peace of Mind provides a way for pets to stay with their owners for as long as possible and works to find new homes with families or friends of the patient first, lessening the burden of unwanted pets on local rescue and welfare organizations. Mountain Valley Hospice is one of only two hospices in North Carolina to be able to offer this program for patients and families.
