In Home Pet Euthanasia-Portland Metro AreaAnnouncementWe'd like to share information about a new support group for people who have pets dealing with age related issues, chronic or terminal disease. The Halo Support Group is meeting at least twice monthly, with alternating meetings for people with cats or people with dogs. Please visit www.petsupportgroup.com for more information.

From the moment you initially call us, assisting you will be our first priority.  If you prefer e-mail contact, you will receive the same dedicated attention.  Our goal is to surround you with support as you consider euthanasia for your cat or dog.

With respect and empathy, we will provide guidance for you and compassionate assistance for your beloved pet.  We are caring and discreet, and will allow you and your pet to say good-bye on your terms, in the comfortable and familiar surroundings you choose.

In your home, your back yard, on a favorite bed, in a local park, or wherever you feel your pet would be most at peace, we will be there for you and your dog or cat.

Sometimes the decision about euthanasia seems an impossible one.  We love our pets dearly, and want to do the right thing. We all want to pick the best time to say good-bye - not too soon, not too late.  Sometimes the decision seems obvious and it is clear that the time for euthanasia has arrived.  Other times you may need help assessing the timing or discovering if there are other viable options. We have helped thousands of people through this decision making process, and  we can likely help you too.
