Joshua’s House Hospice is pleased to have a wonderful partner in Good Sense Dogs, a local nonprofit co-founded by Kristi Cooney (pictured left), professional dog trainer and member of our Community Advisory Committee. Good Sense aids current pet owners, educates potential pet owners, and provides assisting animals to those in need.
They have also worked with the homeless. “Our work with the homeless has shown us what pets mean to their owners. For most of this population, their pet serves as their entire family as well as best friend. There would be no discussion about entering care for them-selves if they didn’t have an option for their furry best friend. They would rather die on the streets than leave their pet abandoned.” Good Sense wants to provide Joshua’s House Hospice residents with the peace of mind in knowing that their beloved pets will be taken care of and loved.
