      There is a special bond between hospice patients and their beloved animal companions. This family-friendly, pet-centered event raises funds to help care for these “best friends” of hospice patients, and to assist with finding a new forever home for pets, when needed.

      Keeping Patients and Pets Together
      The Pet Peace of Mind® Program offers financial resources and trained hospice volunteers to help a pet owner with tasks they may not be able to do any longer, such as walking a dog, cleaning a litter box, or taking a pet to the groomer. Often times, these supportive services allow a hospice patient to keep their pet in their home with them throughout their illness and maintain the hospice patient’s quality of life.

      Finding Permanent Homes for Pets
      For those hospice patients who are unable to keep their pets at home with them, Willamette Valley Hospice works alongside local rescues and foster families to find permanent homes for the animals.

      Interested in becoming a volunteer or community partner? Please contact Volunteer Coordinator Shelley Wagener at 503.588.3600 or shelley.wagener@wvh.org for more information on how you can help.
