Palliative Program

Do you ever wonder what happens to those dogs whose path does not cross ours until much later in their journey through life? We would love to share a bit our Palliative Program and the dogs who are part of it. 

Our hearts are immediately endeared to these deserving souls and we know that they crossed paths with us to ensure that they spend their remaining days; which we hope to be plenty; knowing nothing less than complete unconditional love and devotion. We want them to know all the joys of having a beloved family, a soft bed and a full belly. It Takes A Village continues to provide food, supplies, vetting care, toys and special treats for the dogs but the real heroes here are the foster families. Our remarkable Palliative Foster Families have opened their homes and their hearts to these dogs knowing full well they will one day have to endure the dreaded heartbreak that will inevitably come.

You will find some of our past Palliative Program dogs that have moved on, on our Rainbow Bridge page.
