Research confirms the need for pet assistance for hospitalized patients.

Emergency fostering is an important component of any foster program. Hospitalizations can be stressful for patients for a number of reasons such as getting care for their pets while they’re away from home.

A recent survey was conducted at the University of Michigan Health on this very topic. More than half (63%) of the patients reported difficulty figuring out pet care during their own hospitalization and/or that of a loved one.
