Comfort and empowerment around end of life choices for you and your animal friend.

"We want our animal family member to be comfortable.  We wish we could know what lies ahead for planning and decision-making."

We’ll ensure that you realize your choices, offer you the tools that you need to build your plan, and then empower you to make the decisions that are right for you all when the appropriate times come. 

We’re based in greater Seattle. We’re a community of caregivers who serve pets and people, assisting you while you follow the veterinary care plan.
