Help Dying People Keep Their Pets

From Banfield Charitable Trust

"One of the most difficult parts of dying is saying goodbye to those you love most. Many hospice patients must part with their beloved pets because they have no one to help with pet care and expenses.  Some pets are left homeless when the patient dies.  Banfield Charitable Trust’s hospice patient/pet support program, Pet Peace of Mind, provides non-profit hospices with resources and funding to help hospice patients care for their pets. Over the past eight months, over 100 hospices have contacted us and are interested in starting the program for their patients.  To find out more about Pet Peace of Mind, visit www.petpeaceofmind.org

We have been selected to compete for a $250,000 grant from Pepsi as part of the Pepsi Refresh Project.  HELP HOSPICE PATIENTS KEEP THEIR PETS is our project name in the Pepsi competition. Winners are decided by an online voting process and your vote will help us secure a $250,000 grant.  Thousands of hospice patients and pets will benefit from this important program for this grant would provide funding for more than one-third of interested hospices in 2010.

It only takes 3 minutes to register. And to save you even more time, there are sign-up tips on our web page at www.banfieldcharitabletrust.org/bark

Thanks for the blog post. We appreciate the good words about this important program.

This is a great idea!

Kudos to the Organizer of this Pet's Charity!

I love the idea of Banfield Charitable Trust’s hospice patient/pet support program because they give home to the homeless pets and medical care as well.this would be a kind of blessing to the animals life.

I always love the idea of being animal-lover. We should always be grateful and always be kind to animals.

I have been searching for some information about it almost three hours. You helped me a lot indeed and reading this your article I have found many new and useful information about this subject.
