Death can be such an uncomfortable topic for many people. I think it’s important to see it, this last stage, and demystify it, make it less scary and sad while honoring the ones we love. My own experiences with the loss of my beloved pets have helped to shape my understanding and provide me with the unique opportunity to help others.

As an animal advocacy organization and rescue group for animals with special needs, we want to be able to offer support for people who go through this difficult process, before, during and afterward. We are offering this support in whatever capacity needed. Maybe you need a ride, maybe you need to talk through the process, maybe you may need someone to hold your hand as you say your final goodbye or you may need to speak with a counselor after the passing of your beloved pet. We will help to guide you by offering compassionate, empathetic and individualized support.
