The Nikki Hospice Foundation for Pets would like to acknowledge the following organizations, institutions, businesses, websites, publishing/media groups and individuals who have given us their endorsement, their moral support and their encouragement in an effort to sustain our endeavors in promoting the concept of veterinary hospice care. These supporters have not only commended the principles of our mission, but they have also expressed their recognition of our deep commitment to this humane and progressive program which ultimately strengthens the human-animal bond. We thank them for their genuine interest and for their willingness to help spread the word about our work, as well as for the invaluable assistance they have provided us, especially those who published articles; presented us with awards or recognition; broadcast interviews; sponsored events; invited us to give presentations; did research work; donated their time, services, products, and expertise; matched pledges through their corporate charitable employee contributions campaign; or elected to become benefactors of The NHFP. To all of them we extend our heartfelt gratitude. A very special “thank you” also goes to Pat Harper of The California Maritime Academy (CSU Maritime), who designed this website and who is currently the webmaster.
