Why do we have dogs in hospice care? 
A large part of our mission is to rescue and find homes for the most amazing senior dogs :). However sometimes some of these senior pooches have special conditions and they become our forever fosters. These pooches stay in our care until they are called Over The Rainbow Bridge and we strive to provide them a loving home and the best possible care and to maintain their comfort during their days with us.

Trick or Treat for Hospice Pets is a great idea. Thanks for calling attention to the sad plight of dogs in foster care with chronic health conditions or terminal illnesses. These pups still have plenty of life, love and companionship to offer. When they Cross Over the Rainbow Bridge, they will not die alone and unloved. We will mourn their passing and remember them with moist eyes. Rest in peace, sweet Missy/Julie.
