Today, we officially end our participation in the Pepsi Challenge Project. This has been an incredible opportunity to spread the word about our program that keeps hospice patients and their pets together, Pet Peace of Mind. We have been humbled and honored by your daily voting support, your willingness to encourage family and friends to vote for us and the wonderful, uplifting comments about Pet Peace of Mind that you posted online and sent in your emails. We are also grateful to those of you who shared stories about how your loved ones cared so deeply for the pets in their lives. All of these things motivate us, inspire us and keep us focused on the work we do at Banfield Charitable Trust. Thank you for believing in us and believing in Pet Peace of Mind! Stay tuned for more updates and news about the program on our Facebook page, Pet Peace of Mind! And, of course, there will be more stories here on the blog--thank you for reading!
This groundbreaking program enables hospice patients to keep their Pets at home with them throughout their end-of-life journey. It is another way - a significant way - that Banfield Charitable Trust continues its mission to fund or administer programs that find innovative ways to keep Pets and families together.
