What is animal hospice and why would my animal friend and I benefit?
What does it take to give animal hospice care to my beloved animal family member?
Join AHELP Project Director Michelle Nichols and others for one hour of storytelling and information, followed by an hour of sharing. You are welcome to come for either, or both hours.
Animal lovers like you seek the same loving care that their human loved ones had through hospice, and animal hospice and palliative care gives them the means to do so. Please begin to prepare now! Though this is a regularly scheduled event, we can be more of "A Help" while your animal is still relatively well.
- Resources to find home hospice support that suits your needs.
- In partnership with your veterinarian, learn about tools and strategies that can assist in the end-of-life journey.
- Gain insight into the grieving process, which in turn can help you cope with sadness before, during and after your animal companion's transition.
- Find comfort after your loss in the support from like-minded animal lovers.
Please note that attendance is limited. To ensure your place at the event, please "buy a ticket," for a penny (which we will cover for you. Or else add your donation amount when you obtain a ticket, which allows us to bring the presentation at low cost. Last minute planning? Please call to 916-705-9574.
Your animal companion is welcome; please bring a bed or comfy place for him or her to lay and a blanket if you're concerned about temperature. Consider bringing a photo or a memento for sharing if your animal friend isn't able to come or has already passed away. Tea, coffee and light snacks will be offered.
We meet in the Education Room of Seattle Veterinary Specialists in Kirkland. Go through the lobby, turn right down the hallway, and into the door directly ahead.
