Penelope is looking for a Fospice Home!

Our fospice program allows pets nearing the end stages of life to live out their finals months/years in a loving home, at no cost to the family who takes them in. Pets In Need will handle all medical expenses and will provide food- we just ask that you provide love and care! For more information about fospice, email

Do you have room in your home and your heart for a sweet senior gal to live out her golden years? Meet Penelope! She was found wandering outside our shelter, hungry and feeling under the weather. We took her in, treated her and found out that she has all the usual senior cat conditions including hyperthyroidism and renal disease. Penelope would love to find a quiet home where she can relax and watch the birds out the window. You may notice that she’s got a bit of a cloudy eye, but this does not affect her and she can still get around just fine. Penelope is on medication for hyperthyroidism and will require medication and a prescription diet for the rest of her life, but she is still a happy and loving cat. Penelope is food and treat motivated, which makes giving her medication a breeze! She loves affection from her person and even gives kitty kisses! We know the right home is out there for Penelope, and she deserves a great one!

To meet Penelope, please email

3281 E. Bayshore Road, Palo Alto, CA

Open Monday-Friday 12:00-5:00 pm and Saturday 10:00 am-5:00 pm.
