Pet Peace of Mind Program
Mt. Hood Hospice helps to keep patients and pets together during hospice care.
Recognizing the special importance of the bond between humans and their animal companions, Mt. Hood Hospice’s Pet Peace of Mind Program allows patients to complete their end of life journey without worrying about the needs of their pets. Through this program volunteers help provide pet care such as walking the dog, changing cat litter box or feeding. Through generous donations we are able to offer financial assistance for patients who need help caring for their pets while on hospice, which may include food, grooming and routine vet care. Mt. Hood Hospice can also assist with re-homing services if necessary.

Pet Peace of Mind is a national program based out of Salem, Oregon. Mt. Hood Hospice is an active member.
About Mt. Hood Hospice
Mt. Hood Hospice has been providing care and bereavement support to families in Multnomah and Clackamas Counties for over 40 years. We are a not-for-profit, free standing, independent, community-based hospice.
Mt. Hood Hospice was the first free-standing hospice in Oregon to be granted Medicare certification in 1987. Since that time we have stayed current in compliance with changing CMS regulations while remaining true to our original ideal: to provide the highest quality care to families coping with life-limiting illness, emphasizing comfort, dignity and choice.
Because every day is a gift
MT. HOOD HOSPICE CELEBRATES 40 YEARS!
We are a not-for-profit Hospice that provides quality care for terminally ill patients and their loved ones, regardless of their ability to pay.
Living with a Terminal Illness
When a loved one is diagnosed with a terminal illness, the lives of those close to them are impacted as well. It's important to learn as much as you can about the illness. The more information you have, the more in control you will feel. Learn more.
