Pet Peace of Mind© helps Hospice Savannah families stay together. Click here to read a story about how we do that. Click here to see a video about this program.
For over three decades we have been caring for patients and their loved ones in the counties of the Coastal Empire. We believe that it’s not just the patient who needs compassionate care, but each member of the family. A start-up grant through the Banfield Charitable Trust, we extend that compassion to animals so that we can keep patients and their beloved pets together during their time under our care. We know that the unconditional love and acceptance provided by pets is priceless medicine!
If you are a Hospice Savannah patient or caregiver and need some extra help caring for feathered, finned or furry members of your family, please let us know, or call our Volunteer Services Coordinator at 912.629.1048. Our specially trained volunteers can provide pet food and cat litter; pet walking; routine veterinary care and transportation; grooming and transportation; transportation to nursing facilities to visit owners; foster care; and assistance with finding a “forever home” if the family cannot keep the pet after the patient’s death.
In June, 2014, Amie's Place, a New York, not-for-profit corporate Foundation dedicated to preventing unnecessary forced separation of people from their pets and supporting people who are at risk of losing their pets at times of crisis, awarded our Pet Peace of Mind© program a one-time grant of $2000.
We are also grateful to the local groomers and veterinarians who support us, to Case Veterinary Hospital for providing veterinarian guidance as needed and to TailsSpin Pet Food and Accessories for their donations.
