In the Products section below (currently under construction), you’ll find sites offering products for the care of special-needs and hospice animals. AHELP does not explicitly endorse these sites or products. They have been used successfully by our members and supporters to assist with their own pets, but we urge you to always inform your veterinarian of methods and products you choose to care for your pet. Not all products are suitable for all animals and conditions.
If you know of a related site not listed here, please tell us about it, including how a particular product helped you or your pet – email Anna@ahelpproject.org.
In the Resources section (currently under construction), you’ll find links to organizations that further the cause of animal hospice and offer information, research, and support. Again, we gladly accept recommendations for links you have found helpful!
