Good Sense Dogs wishes to create a trailer that will be used for the adoption of pets that were relinquished by the homeless in hospice care, as well as teaching the vocational skill of dog training and care to under-served and at risk groups.

For most pet owners, the idea of what will happen to their pet should they become gravely ill or die is not an unanswered question. Most people have family, friends, or a plan of some sort to ensure the safety and continued care of their loved pet. This is not true for the homeless pet owning population who are terminally ill and dying. Good Sense Dogs has partnered with Joshua's House, the first hospice for the homeless on the west coast, to create a safe place for those beloved pets.


Good Sense Dogs will be called on to receive the pets of the admitted residents of Joshua's House who will no longer be able to care for their animal companions. Under the direction of our professional trainers, a plan will be created for every animal for its long term care, training and eventual placement into a new home. Good Sense Dogs will utilize its existing Ahead with Tails program to partner at risk and under-served groups of volunteers to help with the pets training and care.

Long-Term Impact

Our rescue, train and re-home program will offer a solution to dozens of terminally ill homeless people, making the transition into hospice an easier choice. Often the pets of the homeless serve as both family and friend, and many homeless will not seek the medical help they need because of their concern for their pets. In addition, we will offer a hands on learning experience for ten to twenty at risk or under-served people seeking vocational skills to gain experience and independence.
