Fospice Dogs: Saving Seniors

$8,139 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 182 people in 48 months
Fospice” is our unique sponsorship program to provide end-of-life comfort and care to a homeless terminally ill / elderly dog (dogs with more limited time left on this earth). Note: all donations are tax-deductible.

We chose this name for our program based on the hospice idea of providing comfort and care. Our goal is to save a life, and to inspire others to help however possible. Foster Dogs NYC helps find the dog a long-term "forever foster" home, and will donate funds to the dog's rescue organization. Each dog (and foster caretaker) will be provided with a foster home, as well as several special perks: BarkBox subscription, dog bed from Harry Barker, custom watercolor portrait, and professional photo shoot.

With increased dollars, we can donate more funds to each dog's rescue group to help with received vet care. We can also afford to help with future vet care, as well as necessary transportation costs. With such amazing corporations involved, the gifts are provided at no cost to Foster Dogs NYC, though we aim to offer additional aide such as payment for euthanasia and end-of-life expenses. 

This should be a positive experience for the foster caretaker, not a sad one. We want to help encourage others to save a senior shelter dog.

We've had quite an impactful few months with our Fospice program. Fospice is "Foster + Hospice" for terminally ill and/or super-senior shelter dogs. We help by making donations, assist with home placement, donate morale-boosting goodies, and provide the home with whatever we can to make everyone comfortable. Many ways we've used your beautiful donations this year alone: We paid Cocker Spaniel BEAU's $500 vet bill, $250 to RICHIE the elderly sick Poodle, $300 to HOLLY the sick Yorkie, $200 to BAMBI the diabetic MinPin. In December, we gave $2,000 to nonprofit group Susie's Senior Dogs, to support their national senior rescue efforts. It's been incredible to share our love with all these dogs and rescue groups. These monetary donations were given directly to nonprofit rescue groups, and we also are providing support to the "forever foster" families in the form of food purchasing and other reimbursements where possible.

We need YOUR HELP to continue our support; please send your donations to help us support more FOSPICE dogs from various rescue groups in NYC & around the country. Please DONATE (tax-deductible), so we many continue these efforts. We rely on donations from wonderful people like you! Thank you, and please share so we may save more Fospice sick / super-senior dogs.

THANK YOU in advance! Any amount helps.
Richie Bear & "forever foster" Mellissa

We have been flooded with KINDNESS recently, when BarkPost shared our story again. It's been a very special year, as we've reached over 20 sponsorships for Fospice and are already scoping out new ways to help the terminally ill and elderly dogs of NY (and beyond). Our next Fospice dog Dolly has no idea the special gifts coming her way. We'll share her story soon to View more about our program:
