Safe Place for Pets is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit pet placement organization that provides care, support, and rehoming services for terminally ill person(s) and their pets. For 25 years, Safe Place for Pets has compassionately served pet owners diagnosed with terminal illnesses. We have found forever homes for over 1,200 of their beloved pets 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 pets care and quality of life when they are not able to provide it themselves. We provide peace of mind to terminally ill individuals as they near their last moments, reassuring them that their pets will be okay. We pride ourselves on our passion and commitment to the animals and clients that we serve.
Our organization is in need of monetary donations to support the cost of high-quality veterinary care for the pets in our care, as well as Board Members to help govern SP4P.
100,000 – 500,000 pets are orphaned every year when their owners pass away or become too ill to care for their pets.
“"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
