Pet Guidelines

Kansas City Hospice House™ welcomes your pets. Cats and dogs may visit without special permission. Please ask the Facility Manager to approve any other type of pet. Please follow these pet guidelines:

  • Please check in at the front desk when bringing a pet.
  • Pets must have current vaccinations and be disease free.
  • Pets must be on a leash at all times and accompanied by a family member.
  • We ask that pets not be allowed on furniture.
  • If pets are take outdoors to eliminate, please walk them in designated areas and not in the courtyard. Waste should be bagged and placed in an outdoor trash receptacle. Please ask the front desk about designated pet areas and for bags.
  • If your pet urinates or defecates inside, the accident must be reported to staff immediately.
  • The visitor who accompanies the pet takes full responsibility for assuring the pet’s proper behavior and safety.

Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care is not liable for the behavior or safety of the pet.
