Hospets is a unique organization, founded in 2011. We are an all volunteer, non profit, focusing on the bond, health and emotional well-being of both senior citizens and their pets. Often a pet is the only regular form of companionship a senior may have. Hospets strives to provide assistance to help keep the senior citizens and the pets happy, healthy and together as long as possible.
We are located in Marysville, Ohio, serving people 60 years of age or older. Our focus area is Union County, Ohio. We will provide assistance in surrounding areas as space and resources allow.

Home Away From Home
Having a pet greatly improves the physical and emotional well-being of senior citizens yet many senior citizens are on fixed incomes and may need to be hospitalized from time to time. The question arises many times: where do the pets go if there is no family nearby to help?
We have used in home foster homes for many pets but this is not an option for many other pets due to health, disease or behavior. In order to help these pets, a fostering facility is needed.
We need your help! We need your donations! Please take a look at our campaign and see how you can help us help them.
