The International Association for Animal Hospice and Palliative Care is dedicated to promoting knowledge of, and developing guidelines for, comfort-oriented care to companion animals as they approach the end of life.

IAAHPC promotes hospice/palliative care for animal companions as an alternative to premature euthanasia and as an alternative to prolonged suffering which can result either from isolating an animal in intensive care or from inadequately treating the animal at home.

IAAHPC emphasizes the terminally ill animal's quality of life and recognizes that hospice/palliative care provides the animal's family precious quality time with the animal, and helps the family cope with the approaching death of their beloved companion.
