Seven Reasons Your Hospice Should Start a
Pet Peace of Mind Program


Improved Patient Experience

Pet Peace of Mind provides an improved patient experience by offering a critically important service for your patients. Many hospices already have Pet Therapy or Pet Visitor programs. Pet Peace of Mind offers an even more personal touch by providing assistance with the patient’s own pet. This program is designed to support the emotional bond patients have with their pets at a time when they need support the most.

A Seamless Solution

Pet Peace of Mind solves a problem for your hospice team by providing a seamless program solution to support pet care and potential pet homing needs for your patients. We provide your team with a proven program model featuring a nine year history of successfully providing training and ongoing launch and support to hospice operators.

No Additional Staffing Required

Training and launch preparation will take approximately 25 to 30 hours of one person’s staff time. Once established, this volunteer-driven program is simple to operate and does not require hiring additional staff to maintain the program. 

Stand Out From the Crowd

Pet Peace of Mind is a way to differentiate your business from other providers that do not offer this important national program. If only one patient selects your hospice because you offer Pet Peace of Mind, the training cost will have paid for itself.

Helps Satisfy Your Medicare Volunteer Requirement

The time your volunteers spend working on and delivering Pet Peace of Mind services help fulfill your 5% Medicare volunteer requirement.

A Partner You Can Trust

Pet Peace of Mind is the original developer of this program and remains the only national organization offering programming for this important patient service initiative. Pet Peace of Mind has enjoyed a strategic partnership with National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) for more than three years.


Starting a Pet Peace of Mind program is very affordable! You pay a $500 one-time training fee which provides you with a comprehensive operating manual, personalized training sessions, every program forms and the marketing materials you need to launch the program, program launch advice and support, ongoing advice after your program is up and running, and national brand identity.

IDEA: Want to launch Pet Peace of Mind but you don’t have the money in your budget for the $500 training fee? Ask a community business or private individual to make a directed to donation to Pet Peace of Mind, Inc. and we’ll provide your benefactor with a tax deduction receipt for making the donation on your behalf.
