Mariette and the Italian Greyhounds

A patient's wife won a free vacation, but with limited resources they didn't have the ability to board their two greyhounds. A volunteer, Mariette, who once owned an Italian Greyhound of her own, offered to give these sweet dogs a temporary home for the week. The patient received respite care at a Hope Hospice House, while his wife enjoyed a much-needed cruise - and the dogs enjoyed cuddle time on the couch with Mariette!

Inga and Milo Lost Their Mom - Can You Help?

Update Jan 24: Inga and Milo have found a new home with Bonnie, one of Hope’s volunteers!

Inga and Milo were rescue cats who were the only companions of one of our hospice patients. After ten years together, they lost their mother and need your love.

These two healthy and friendly cats are currently being fed by friendly neighbors in the Del Tura Country Club.

Can you adopt Inga, a spayed and declawed calico female?

Or Milo, a neutered, black and white male cat who is good with other pets?

Call Colette at (239) 985-7728 to add one or both of these friendly faces to your family.

Prissy, Mr. Willow and Ms. Katie are Looking for Love

These three beautiful pets belong to Lisa - a young woman who lost her husband a year ago and will no longer have a home for them to stay together.

These pets can be adopted as a group or individually. The cats are very used to being together because this brother and sister were from the same litter.

Prissy is a 9.5 year old full bred Sheltie. She has a kind, relaxed disposition and loves being with family. Prissy enjoys being petted and getting attention. She has some minor hip arthritis, but it doesn't hold her back. She's allergic to bees and requires an epi shot if stung. She is finicky with food but is very healthy. Prissy has given birth to one litter of puppies, and she is not spayed. Her microchip is from the Eastside Animal Hospital, and she is up to date on her shots.

Mr. Willow and Ms. Katie (below) are Hemingway cats with more than five toes. They were part of Lisa's family for over 13 years. This brother and sister pair are outdoor cats who only come inside when it's cold or rainy - or to get their food and water. They still have their natural claws. Neither of them likes seafood or seafood cat food. Both cats have been spayed/neutered.

Mr. Willow (above) is an all black male cat. He loves to cuddle -- but please don't touch his belly! He has a talkative personality and will charm you with his meows.

Ms. Katie (above) is a brown and black female cat with 7 front and 5 back claws. She is lovable and shy, craving attention. She loves to sit on a lap. Ms. Katie can be skittish during storms or when confronted by children or large dogs.

Do you want to adopt Prissy, Mr. Willow or Ms. Katie? Hope can help get you started with supplies and support.

Gavin and Lexi - Friends For Life

At 11 years old, Lexi got a tumor on his leg, but his family didn't have the financial resources to provide a cure. Through a partnership with a local vet and with funds raised from generous Pet Peace of Mind donors, we were able to make arrangements for Lexi's surgery.

Reunited, Lexi and Gavin are happy together at home!

Bear Bear Meets His Match

Bear Bear was an abandoned kitty that was a spunky companion for one of our patients. This rambunctious 6 month old kitten needed a new home, and Hope's Pet Peace of Mind came to the rescue. Bear Bear's new family includes a 2 year old toddler, so Bear Bear has a playmate who shares his active lifestyle!
