The Maggie Fleming Animal Hospice
In our society, most animals are denied a peaceful life and death. At the Maggie Fleming Animal Hospice and The Karass Sanctuary for Farmed Animals we show that there is another way, in life and in death.
We provide responsible, compassionate end-of-life care to terminally-ill companion animals who have been abandoned in the final stages of their lives and would otherwise die alone in a pound or kennel, and to farmed animals who would otherwise die in a slaughter house. We believe in quality care that is comforting, kind, compassionate and dignified.
No matter what shape we come in - dog, chicken, sheep, pig, cow, human - in life and in death we all want the same things; to feel safe, secure and comfortable, and to be free from worry, anxiety, pain and fear. We take care of as many of their worries as we can so that they don’t have to worry about being thirsty, hungry, in pain, or lonely and they can spend their last few days, weeks or months in peace knowing that they don’t have to face the end on their own. When the time comes, we always aim to facilitate a dignified and peaceful death at home, with a friend by their side.
We also encourage and support people to do end of life care for their own family members to help keep families together and believe in responsibility until the end.
The Maggie Fleming Animal Hospice is run entirely by volunteers and we rely on donations from people who share our belief in the importance of end of life care.
