We serve terminally ill people by finding forever homes for their pets. For more than 20 years, we have strived to provide peace of mind to owners and pets in their time of need by providing care, support, and rehoming services. We have found forever homes for over 1,200 beloved pets who lost their owner due to a terminal illness, while also providing needed veterinary care and support.
Our mission is unique and allows us to establish a community where terminally ill people have the support for their pet’s care and quality of life, even if they are unable to provide it themselves. We pride ourselves on our passion and commitment to the animals and clients that we serve. Safe Place for Pets is one of a handful of organizations across the United States doing this important work.
Our organization is in need of monetary donations to support the cost of high-quality veterinary care for our pets, animal care volunteers, vet partnerships, and foster homes for our dogs & cats.
100,000 – 500,000 pets are orphaned every year when their owners pass away, become too ill to care for their pets, or when family members cannot take the pet.
“The peace of mind I have knowing Safe Place will find the perfect family for my pet is so comforting.” — Madeline, a terminally ill pet owner
