After making one of the hardest decisions ever for Kevin our cat who was diagnosed w/FIP.. we contacted Compassion4PAWS to schedule euthanasia. I felt immediately from the moment Dr Audrey arrived that she was one of the most kindest and compassionate person I'd ever met. She was as concerned for us, Kevin's humans as she was for Kevin. Dr Audrey explained the process with such care and never once did she rush us and always asked if we ready to proceed after a step or needed more time. When Kevin had finally passed to the bridge, more time was given to us to be with him. She even offered to make a keepsake foot print for us. While she waited for us she spent time with our dogs showing love and compassion to them as well. The care she took in wrapping him up in a blanket for travel, even more compassion was shown and we were given the choice to carry him out to her vehicle and place, yet again allowing us with more time and one final good-bye. I cannot say enough about Dr Audrey and Compassion4PAWS... All I can do is highly recommend them when your time comes to make this hard decision. Rest assured, your fur baby will receive the most loving care and respect.
Thank you so much for helping us through a very difficult day right before Christmas. We were so sad to lose Liam, our cat of 17 years, but the way Dr. Tracy supported all of us, including our three crying teenagers was remarkable.
Yesterday, Dr. Audrey came to our apartment to help our cat Betty rest. From the moment she stepped into our home, Dr. Audrey made everyone feel comfortable. She spent time with my girlfriend and me, asking questions about Betty's life, telling us about the procedure, and making sure that we were going at the pace that was comfortable for all of us. She was respectful, compassionate, and was a genuine friend in the hardest of times. Without her support and professional conduct, Betty's passing could have been much more painful. When you allow a stranger into your home to help a family member pass, you want to make sure that this person can be there in your time of need. If you are looking for someone to help, you won't find anyone better than Dr. Audrey. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
Yes, it was such a difficult decision for us to have to make about our sweet kitty. Dr. Audrey was so compassionate from the minute that she arrived. It was good to have a little bit of time to talk about our boy with her. She also would explain each step of the process and was giving us plenty of time to spend alone with him. It was an emotional and tearful time, and we felt comfortable enough with her to not hold back. It meant so much that she treated his body so respectfully and curled him up so he looked like he was enjoying a snooze in the fuzzy blanket in which she carried him. I would recommend this service for anyone having to let go of a beloved furry member of their family.
From the moment I met Dr. Audrey, she hugged me and I knew she cared. She transitioned my beautiful girl in such a loving and respectful way, and I am eternally grateful. She gave us the time we needed and reinforced that the hard decision that we were making was the right one for Jules. Thank you Dr. Audrey for your compassion and expertise.
Dr. Audrey was so compassionate and made Roca's transition as easy as can be for both my family and I and Roca. Just by the way she carried herself and handled the process I became calmer and was able to be strong for Roca. I am so grateful I was able to say goodbye to Roca with our family and close friends and with Roca comfortable laying outside in one of her favorite spots in the shade on this warm day. This process was amazing in terms of having closure and feeling confident that I was making the best decision for Roca. Thank you Dr. Audrey 💜
Dr. Audrey came to us to support our family in saying goodbye to our sweet little family member. It was a beautiful experience that was honored with compassion, gentleness, grace and care. Dr Audrey is a empathic and caring soul. She knew exactly what we needed and respected our process. She understood that we wanted to honor our precious kitty as she passed on to a place of peace, rest and free of pain. We are forever grateful for Dr Aubrey’s presence and care . She went above and beyond to help with saying goodbye and placing our sweet Girlzie in her beautiful decorative resting box for cremation. I highly recommend Compassion 4Paws and Dr. Audrey. Very thankful for them! I’d been reaching out for weeks to connect with a in home euthanasia service to help us in our difficult decision to give out kitty a peaceful and pain free farewell. Compassion 4Paws was the only service that followed through, stayed in contact, showed true empathy and care from the start of our initial email correspondence to the moment Dr Audrey said goodbye and left our home. Most beautiful experience! Thank you for everything 💖🐾
It was the most heart wrenching thing I've had to do but it was time to let my 21 year old kitty go. I found out a week earlier that she had a cancerous tumor in her lung. She wasn't breathing or eating well. I'm grateful to Dr. Maia and Compassion 4 Paws for coming to my home and treating my sweet girl with such love and care. Dr. Maia was so patient listening to my silly stories (after 20 years I have a bunch of them). I was crying so hard, I'm not sure any of them even made sense . She explained each part of the process, answered all of my questions and took such tender care of my girl. As I held my sweet girl Dr. Maia said, "The last thing she'll remember is falling asleep in your arms." I had plenty of time to hold her and say goodbye and then very carefully, Dr. Maia wrapped her in a soft, blue blanket (I'll probably never forget that blue blanket) and it was time to let her go. At such a painful time, it was a relief to be in such good hands. I can't say enough good things about Compassion 4 Paws. Thank you for being available to help with such a difficult situation. You truly live up to your name.
We knew it was time to let our 16 year old pup go, but it still was such a difficult decision to make. Dozer was blind and deaf, so going to the vet often made him very anxious. We wanted his final moments to be peaceful and loving and as a family, we decided it would be best for him if we did it at home. Within minutes of Dr. Maia arriving, we felt like we had known her for years. She didn’t just jump right in, instead she took her time to get to know Dozer, listen to our silly little stories about him and give us the time we needed. The whole process was calm and she never made us feel like it was rushed. It was at our pace. Even though he was asleep and feeling no pain, she was still so incredibly gentle with our lil buddy. What was a very difficult and emotional time, when we were questioning if we were making the right decision, she completely put us at ease. We will forever be grateful for turning this dreaded moment into a beautiful experience that my kids and I will forever cherish. In all honesty, I would recommend Dr. Maia, her compassion and services in a heart beat. Thank you Dr. Maia.
Dr. Audrey came to our place to find me crying in the middle of the yard, giving Jake one last potty break before it was time to say goodbye. She barely said a thing before giving me a hug, and I already knew in that moment that I had made the right choice to contact Compassion4Paws. Jake's last moments were filled with tears and love, and so much grief, but having someone there that truly and genuinely cared for the animal with love in their heart and a passion to ease their suffering made this much easier. I will cherish the little clay pawprint I got, which I baked the moment Dr. Audrey left. Making this choice was so, so, so hard, and we second guessed ourselves every minute up until Dr, Audrey confirmed that Jake was in fact in more pain than he was letting on. We had his mom, Sandy, say goodbye and we knew it was the best choice rather than let her wonder where he had gone.
Thank you, Dr. Audrey. Our little, and now even littler, family appreciates the work you did that day.
