Facing the difficult task of evaluating end-of-life options/euthanasia for a beloved pet is a challenging and emotional decision for any pet owner and their veterinarian. What if something positive could come from this difficult decision? Donating the healthy organs of a euthanized companion animal can do just that, having a positive impact on research that can remedy many diseases and conditions facing our pets.
To make this possible, cherishope.org has created a pet organ donation network and procurement service for participating veterinarians and pet owners in the Kansas City area. When a pet’s life comes to an end, donating healthy organs to cherishope.org can help pet owners find solace in knowing their special pet will leave a lasting legacy by contributing to the future of renewed health of other dogs and cats.
