Homeless people often rely on their dogs for companionship, protection, and emotional support. For many of them, their dogs are their only source of unconditional love and loyalty. When a homeless person is placed on hospice care, they may not have a family member or friend able to take care of their dog, so they rely on a service provider to rehome their pet.
Joshua’s House is proud to partner with Good Sense Dogs to provide care for homeless people’s canines while they are living out their final days with us. Letting patients know that their loyal companions are being taken care of can alleviate any anxiety or stress the homeless person may be feeling about their dog’s welfare and provide them with much-needed comfort and support during a difficult time.
