Margot Hill and her dog, Bing, are Hope volunteers. Margot has a passion for both animals and jewelry making, and so every year, she donates a portion of her jewelry sales to our Pet Peace of Mind program. This year, Margot raised $500 to help hospice patients stay safely at home with their pets! These funds allow us to provide financial assistance with vet bills, pet food and supplies.

Update Jan 16: Shadow found a new home with Debby and immediately jumped on her lap during their first meeting.
Shadow is aptly named because he’s been a close shadow to his owner, Muriel, since his days as a kitten. After Muriel's passing, he's been alone except for brief visits from a caregiver coming to feed him and change the litter. It's not an ideal situation for a cat like Shadow who truly loves the company of people in his life!
At 12 years old, Shadow would make an ideal companion for someone with lots of affection. As a result of his regular vet care, he is up-to-date on all vaccinations. His healthy lifestyle and medical records are good indicators that he may grow older gracefully.
Shadow weights about 6-8 pounds, is declawed and neutered. He got along well with a previous cat buddy, and also tolerated the presence of visitor dogs. As an indoor cat, he loves human companionship.
Shadow’s adopter will receive all his toys, a carrier, a litter box, litter and a large bag of dry Purina adult cat food.
Is your heart searching for its “shadow”? If so, this loving cat may be the perfect addition to your life.

Update Jan. 7: Chelsea instantly warmed up to her new owner, Charmaine.
Do your New Year’s resolutions include more exercise? Before he passed away, Robert taught his best friend Chelsea to walk on a leash with a body harness. She would be a great walking companion for a new owner!
Chelsea is between 4-5 years old and very healthy. She is up to date on all veterinary visits and immunizations. She appears comfortable around other dogs and cats when they visit but has been an only pet in her current home.
Several toys, a litter box, carrier and scratch posts will come with Chelsea. She always uses the scratch posts and never the furniture.
Chelsea shows her affection to her human companions by approaching them to receive pets and ear scratches. She loves to entertain by sitting in a sunny window and then trying to catch her tail. Her antics sometimes result in a tumble but she jumps right back up.
A home must be found for Chelsea as soon as possible as family members must return to their home states. Hope can help pay for the initial vet needs, grooming, and start up supplies.
If you are interested in adopting Chelsea, please contact Colette at 239-985-7728.
