Hospice

WHAT IS A HOSPICE DOG?

Each dog that we bring into our rescue goes through a thorough medical evaluation. Oftentimes senior pets who come from shelters or are surrendered to the rescue have prior health conditions that need to be addressed. We have two types of hospice pets “Adoptable Hospice dogs” and “Permanent Hospice dogs”.


ADOPTABLE HOSPICE DOGS

These special pets are considered “Adoptable Hospice dogs”. These dogs, while diagnosed with a specific ailment or disease, are maintaining their current health status.  This makes them AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION! 

**All Adoptable hospice pets are also available to sponsor while they are in the care of the rescue. 


PERMANENT HOSPICE DOGS

Unfortunately, sometimes we learn a pet has a terminal illness that eliminates them from being a good candidate for adoption. Dogs who are deemed permanent hospice status will stay with the rescue for the remainder of their lives, however long that may be. That’s when our hospice foster families step in. They pledge to care for, love, and cherish the permanent hospice dog for the rest of their days. The rescue continues to provide medical care, comfort, & the best quality of life possible for each hospice dog.

Currently we have many permanent hospice dogs in our care. Please consider sponsoring one of our hospice pets!

MEET NICKI ! – PERMANENT HOSPICE DOG 

ABOUT:

Nicki is approximately 16 years old and looks to be a rat terrier mix. When Nicki arrived, she had a raging skin infection. She was itching continuously with no relief, i.e. bright red skin, no hair, skin was black & crusty. Her foster family immediately started a routine bathing protocol, 3-4 times/week with medicated shampoo and an allergy medication for two weeks. She was also fully vetted. Her thyroid was tested due to loss of hair, but it came back in normal range. She’ll need another thyroid test in about 6 months. Since Nicki has been with us, however, her skin has been improving and she is no longer itchy. 

Nicki fun facts: 

  • Loves car rides, load and unloads w/o assistance 
  • Likes walks and is good on a leash but loves to stop and smell everywhere 
  • Independant 
  • House trained but initially had accidents before learning foster home routine 
  • Loves sun baths!!
  • Loves to burrow in blankets!


Nicki is a charming little lady and will knock the socks off of you! She has learned to take cues from the other small dogs in her foster home. She is starting to show signs of dementia and is now a GHR hospice pet. 

  • Background:  Nicki was pulled from Stockton, California shelter in February 2021.
  • Characteristics: Sweet,  blanket-lover, cozy
