About ASAP's 2017 Video - ASAP's Hospice Program

by Pamela Gray

Imagine your cat growing old in the home she’s known all her life; curled up in a heated bed to soothe her aching body, being served her favorite treats to whet her appetite, trying to climb into your lap even though she needs you to lift her up. She may be weaker, slower, thinner, but you’re still by her side, caring for her and giving her unconditional love.

Now imagine that you are no longer there to care for her.

Each year, thousands of senior cats arrive at shelters nationwide, surrendered by owners who can’t afford their medical needs, or abandoned by those who view them as a burden…with nothing left to offer. Shelters without alternative resources have no choice but to euthanize these feline senior citizens.

But at ASAP, we see the wisdom and love in their eyes, and know that these faithful companions deserve our compassionate care. Tonight’s video highlights our Hospice Foster Program, which gets senior cats out of the shelter and back into loving homes.

Giving a cat their FIRST home is a gift, but providing them with their last, is the most PRECIOUS gift of all.
