Do you have an interest in providing hospice (end of life) care for dogs but aren't sure how to get started, or what the experience is like?
When Pets Alive took over the Elmsford Animal Shelter, we found hundreds of dogs that were seniors. Some had even arrived ten or twelve years before - and no effort was made to ever get them a home. They have lived their entire lives in a cement run. And now many are at the end of those lives.
The staff at Pets Alive are desperate to get them into homes, and many of our volunteers have stepped up and provided hospice for the animals most in need
The experience has been very rewarding and very heart wrenching. There is no greater respect, nor admiration that we could have - than for our volunteers who do this for our dogs (& cats).
This picture is Chester. He has cancer and does not have long. He has lived at the shelter for 8 years. We are looking for hospice care for him, and we will continue to cover all his expenses. What does that
Come to Pets Alive Westchester on Tuesday, July 10 at 7pm for an introduction to the principles and practice of canine hospice. Experienced practitioners will take you through the process, there will be a Q&A for questions, and Pets Alive Westchester staff will be on hand to explain how they can support your efforts.
There is no obligation. No expectations of you.
Please just come and learn what it is all about.
This seminar is free! Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. It is not necessary to RSVP - if you find yourself free that night, please just come, but we are requesting RSVP's to make sure we have enough bottled water and snacks for everyone, and that there is enough interest to host this seminar.
