What is Pet Peace of Mind?
Pet Peace of Mind allows patients to complete their end of life journey without worrying about their pet’s current or future needs. The initiative provides volunteer pet care services for patients who are unable to care for their pets, while on hospice.
Pet Peace of Mind services include:
- Assistance with pet food
- Financial assistance with routine veterinary care
- Transporting the pet to veterinary and grooming appointments
- Pet boarding
- and more!
Offering the Pet Peace of Mind program places Hospice Care of the Lowcountry in a select group of other hospice providers that have joined a national network of non-profit hospice providers committed to ensuring that this important patient need is met.
“The human-pet bond is incredibly special. If we can help keep a patient and their pet together, we’ve accomplished what we set out to do. We know that the unconditional love and acceptance provided by pets is priceless medicine!”
“Hospice Care of the Lowcountry works hard to meet both the physical and emotional needs of patients and Pet Peace of Mind helps support the emotional side in a significant way,” said Jenny Brasington, Executive Director of Hospice Care of the Lowcountry.
