Compassionate Care Fospice Program

Capture

Some animals arriving at our doorstep will unfortunately never find their forever homes. Some are elderly, while others may have a terminal medical condition. But these special cases are just as important as the puppies and kittens entering our care, and they deserve a place where they can receive love and respect during the twilight years of their lives. These animals are not suffering, they are simply not able to be placed for adoption. Most shelters would euthanize them upon arrival, but here at the East Bay SPCA, we’d like to offer something different.

Our Compassionate Care Fospice Program, a combination of foster and hospice care, focuses on providing animals a safe, caring and comfortable end-of-life experience in a familiar home environment. While these animals may not have much time left, they still have a lot of love and affection to give to the right home. You will work with both our foster care and medical services teams on an ongoing basis to ensure that your fospice animal receives the absolute best care during its time in your home.

Update: Sheba has a fospice home!

by Mimi Dietderich on March 6, 2017

Thank you for visiting 🙂 I have already found a foster home!

Name: Sheba
Age: 14 years old
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Foster Period: 4 weeks

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to send out a quick reminder that we are still looking for fospice placement for our lovely Sheba. As I mentioned before, Sheba does have cancer and because of this we won’t be able to help her find her forever home. That being said we would like to have Sheba go out into a loving home for the next few weeks just to that she can spend some time simply being a cat. Whether it’s lounging in the sun, playing with some toys or just curled up in a seemingly uncomfortable location it’s her prerogative! Sheba doesn’t require any special care now will she be going home with any medications!

If you have the space and time to take Sheba in please let me know and I’d love to talk to you more!

Thank you

Update: Sheba has a Fospice home.

by Joseph Romero on March 1, 2017

Thank you for visiting 🙂 I have already found a foster home!

Name: Sheba
Age: 14 years old
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Foster Period: 4 weeks

Let me introduce you to Sheba. This shy girl entered our care last month and during a routine screening we noticed something wrong with her blood work. Further follow up showed that she was having issues with her spleen which was ultimately diagnosed as cancerous. Since she’s spent the last month in one of our kennels, we feel it only right that she spend some time in a loving foster home.

Ideally we’d love to get her out for the next 4 weeks where she can do a little relaxing, have some fun and experience the good life. So if you’re available not only would we’d love to hear from you but more importantly, Sheba would love to hear from you.

Thank you
