Keeping Pets & People Together Through Life’s Transitions
Hospice of Washington County (HWC) announced a new program to help patient’s care for their pets! Pet Peace of Mind, which recognizes and actively supports the unique bond between hospice patients and their pets, aligns with Hospice of Washington County’s mission of embracing individual needs with love, kindness, and compassionate care while creating a meaningful end-of-life experience for our patients and families.
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 in hospice. Services include assistance with pet food, financial assistance with routine veterinary care, transporting the pet to veterinary appointments, pet boarding and walking, and more. To learn more or become a volunteer visit https://hospiceofwc.org/ or call (301) 791-6360.
