FOSPICE CARE. Part Foster. Part Hospice. Providing end of life care for our companion animals. The Fospice Program was designed for our shelter animals diagnosed with a life-limiting, non-contagious illness with poor prognosis. Even though they are not suffering, their conditions prevent us from seeking adoptive homes for them. Fospice is a smart alternative to euthanasia for animals who still have quality time left. As with our pre-op, post-op and medical rescues, all medical support, medications, and supplies are provided FREE by the Sonoma Humane Society Shelter Medicine Clinic.
CURRENTLY IN NEED OF FOSPICE CARE:
BEAUTY—9 year old German Shepherd
Ahh, yes, I’ve had my glory days where I was once the most beautiful girl on the block…But time can be a stern mistress, particularly for us shepherds. Although the arthritis in my knees and hips will keep me from reliving those active days of glory, I still love going for walks and sharing your life with endless love, affection and companionship. I’d love to rest my head on your lap while you tell me stories of your glory days – do you have room in your home and heart for me?
As my Fospice caregiver, I’ll depend on you for love and comfort while the Sonoma Humane Society provides for my ongoing medical needs. Let’s meet soon and start living out my golden years!
We think it’s Shebugi’s somewhat tough, street-savvy temperament coupled with a charming sweetness that’s won her the ‘Loudest Meow Contest’ 15 years in a row. Early kidney failure and a sensitive stomach is now a part of Shebugi’s world and she’s adapted very well to her special diet and vet visits. She loves exploring the world—with you in it, of course—and would love to share her affection!
* Press-time note: We have many more, dogs and cats, who need Fospice care. If you think you'd like to become a fospice care provider, please contact Aiko Love, email@example.com
Fospice Care is on a case-by-case basis. You must be comfortable with administering medical support to an animal. You will receive the support of our shelter medical staff.
