Monkey’s HOUSE a Dog Hospice & Sanctuary limits
acceptance of hospice dogs to referrals from established shelters, rescues,
animal control groups, and veterinarians.
We do not accept dogs from individuals looking to re-home their pet.
Acceptance is decided on a case by case basis.
We do not accept dogs with aggressive behavior problems. The dogs are cared for in a group environment
in our home. They must be dog, cat, and
people friendly. Dogs can be accepted
with almost any medical condition and special consideration is given to dogs
with multiple, serious medical problems.
You must have legal authority to surrender the ownership of
the dog, and all surrenders are permanent.
You will be required to sign a surrender form that explains all the
details of surrender upon releasing the dog to Monkey's House.
Fees: We are a private nonprofit organization that receives
no city, state or federal funding. We rely on revenue that we generate to care
for pets while they are in our care. On average, the cost for the initial
veterinary visit for new residents is $300 per dog. Admission Fees help us to
offset these costs. To admit a dog into our care for hospice, we require the
· $300 per dog
– if there is a financial situation in which you are unable to make this
donation, please include that on your surrender form. Our goal is to do the
most we can to aid you in caring for your hospice dog.
If you have a dog for consideration, please complete the form
below. Feel free to attach any
additional information that may help us in understanding the case (medical
records, shelter records, photos). We
understand some cases are URGENT and we will respond to all applications as
soon as possible.
