Review for Hospice Of San Luis Obispo County, San Luis Obisp, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My aunt, who is 88 years old, had to move into a memory care facility after breaking her hip. Her nephew and I moved her from OR to CA to live near me. However, she could not keep her pet. Her cat, Buffie, is almost 13 years old. I was unable to find a home for Buffie in OR, and was unwilling to leave her in a shelter to take her chances. So I brought her on the plane with me down to CA. A friend suggested that I contact Hospice SLO Pets to help find her a home. I didn't know Hospice offered this service! Two staff members at Hospice got the ball rolling. Sidney put together a photo and a blurb about Buffie, and Shannon put the word out in the Hospice newsletter and other announcements. Although Buffie is elderly and has to take daily medication, a wonderful family responded and adopted her. I am very grateful to Hospice SLO Pets, and happy for Buffie in her new home!
