Celebrate with Us! PPOM Success Stories
Our hospice patient Carol was feeding her three large birds from her cupboards with her own canned food. Alerted to Carol's financial difficulties, Hope's Pet Peace of Mind (PPOM) program stepped in. Volunteers Emily and Tino pick up and delivery bird food and apples every month. Carol and her birds can now rest easy knowing that they will never run out of food.
A sweet puppy was recently on the run in a local neighborhood and found himself in the loving arms of a hospice patient. Our patient was so overwhelmed by his diagnosis that he wasn't sure if he'd be able to adopt this friendly little puppy. But PPOM was able to deliver a ‘doggy bag’ full of helpful supplies like a collar, leash, dog food and other goodies. The patient expressed an overwhelming appreciation for our program and how we came to his aid just when he needed it most!
Our patients Frances, Erika and Sherry now receive monthly supplies of cat food. This support for their beloved pets allows them to focus on their own health and well-being.
