Why I do this


I will never forget the day that I had to say goodbye to Chief.  He was a 16 year old Cocker Spaniel that I absolutely adored. I had said goodbye to other pets in the past, but this time it was different. This time I was the veterinarian as well as a grieving family member.  We all knew it was time for Chief to make the trek over the rainbow bridge. 

I couldn’t bare the idea of bringing him to my hospital where he would only visit a few times a year. Rather, the people who loved him all met in a field by his favorite walking trail.  It was a sunny day. We all cried as we sat in the grass and shared our favorite memories to the greatest soul we had ever known and loved.  No one saw us – Chief was surrounded by the people that cherished him.  There was no rush, no noise, no pressure, no hospital.  It was in this moment that I knew that every pet-parent deserves this parting. 

​I am proud to be the founder of Parting Paws.  My wish is to make one of the most difficult moments in life just a little bit more comfortable for you and your pet.  My promise is to allow everyone a chance to be in their own space, with their own privacy, to part with their beloved pet in their own way.  I will do my very best to make this process as stress free as possible. 

When it is time, call me and I will be honored to assist you down this road.
