Treasured Pets is a service offered by Treasure Coast Hospice to assist hospice patients with the care of their beloved pets. We understand a pet’s contribution to the emotional and spiritual well-being of a patient and his or her family.
Our goal is to help maintain the general health and a balanced lifestyle for the pet at a time when it may be difficult for the family to do so alone. We help to relieve the strain on the patient or family regarding their pet presently, as well as concern for its future.
How can I help?
Be a Treasured Pets volunteer by being involved in any one of the following roles. Dog walker and active dog play, delivery of pet food and supplies, assist patients and families with veterinary and grooming visits.
