Mancat Monday With Ping

Ping asks you to please consider this and vote...
Lend a Paw for a good cause...
One of the most difficult parts of dying involves saying goodbye to those you love most. Many hospice patients must part with their beloved pets at the time when they need them most because they have no one to help with pet care and expenses. Some pets are left homeless when the patient dies. Our hospice patient/pet support program, Pet Peace of Mind, provides non-profit hospices with resources and funding to help hospice patients care for their pets. Over the past eight months, more than 100 hospices nationwide have contacted us and are interested in starting the program for their patients. To find out more about Pet Peace of Mind, visit

Your Vote is Very Important

The program has been selected to compete for a $250,000 grant from Pepsi as part of the Pepsi Refresh Project. Help Hospice Patients Keep Their Pets is our project name within the Pepsi competition. Winners are decided by an online voting process and your vote will help us secure a $250,000 grant. Thousands of hospice patients and pets will benefit from this important program. This grant would provide funding for more than one-third of interested hospices in 2010.
