When its time to say goodbye, you will not be alone.

The last visit is THE most important one.....

Your relationship with your pet is special, and you are responsible for its care and welfare. Eventually, many owners are faced with making a final decision. Sickness, injury, and age are all contributing factors. None of them make it any easier when you are talking about your pet - your friend. 

Your decision is a personal one, but it does not need to be a solitary one. Your family, friends and the team at PetCare will be there to assist and support you.

 

Know that we have been through this too.

 

We want to make this last visit the most comfortable for your pet and help you through the process as best we can. 

Time to Say Goodbye
— Annie Dougherty​​

As we lay our hands upon you,
Before your final rest,
Our hearts surround to love you,
And thank you for your best.
Our home you watched and treasured,
Our lives you truly blessed.

Lessening now your burdens
We tend your tired bones.
Let us be your pillow,
Then wings to take you home.
Listen
, for God’s calling,
Sweet promises of peace.
Old friend, leap to Heaven,
Suffering released
