During the month of June’s Community Outreach, Keller Williams Realty, on Amelia Island, is assisting our community by collecting gift cards in any amount for the Community Hospice & Palliative Care Pet Program.
The Community Hospice & Palliative Care Pet Program allows hospice patients to complete their end-of-life journey with the comfort and companionship of their beloved pet, without having to worry about their pet’s current or future needs.
Unfortunately, many people in hospice care are physically or financially unable to care for their pets, but still benefit greatly from their presence. Simple tasks are difficult, if not impossible at this stage of life.
The Pet Program provides solutions to these challenging situations by ensuring patients’ pets are getting all their needs met with the same loving care their families have given them but with the help of Community Hospice & Palliative Care’s specially trained volunteers.
The program assists hospice patients’ by providing the following for their pets: Basic in-home pet care, delivery of pet food, grooming and foster care or placement of the pet when the patient dies. This relieves the patients of the worry of what will happen to their beloved companion after they are gone.
Please consider giving a gift card from any variety, grocery, pet, or Visa/Master Card to help facilitate these important services. Any denomination is helpful. They will be used to facilitate these services for the pets of those in end-of-life care. (Cash is also a welcome gift to the program!)
These gift cards may be dropped off at the front desk of the Keller Williams Realty office at 4800 1st Coast Hwy. Suite #230, Amelia Island, in the Harris Teeter, Shops at Amelia Market Plaza. (M-F. 9-2)
You can also foster or adopt, as well as volunteer or make a charitable donation to this important program by visiting support.communityhospice.com/donate. The Community Hospice & Palliative Care volunteer coordinator, Chris Whitney can be reached at 904.407.5204 or CWhitney@communityhospice.com.
