Dogs Needing Fospice Care

Muttville has a wonderful program for dogs that arrive here with untreatable terminal illnesses. It is called fospice, a combination of foster and hospice. Fospice means taking a dog into your home and giving it palliative care, love, and a wonderful life until it is their time for euthanasia. It can be a very rewarding experience for both the dog and family.

Muttville covers palliative care costs for these dogs and offers support and guidance.

Having fospice homes ready and waiting for new arrivals is tremendously helpful! We recommend contacting us as soon as you are ready. We’ll schedule a brief interview to evaluate your experience. When the right match comes along, we’ll let you know.

If you wish to become considered for the Fospice Program as a caregiver or want more information, please send an email to

You can also contact the Fospice team if you are interested in:

  • The Health and Healing Program: fostering a senior dog who requires special care for a period of time until their health improves;
  • Special Care Adoption: adopting a senior dog that may require long-term or ongoing special care.

Thanks so much for opening your heart and home to one of our special dogs.
