On behalf of Zack and my surviving canine partner, Abbie, we are grateful to Home Pet Euthanasia. Dr. Lily is compassionate and did not rush the approach. She was so respectful of our wishes and desires. She took the time to get to know all of us. She also checked-in with me on how I was during the precedure. I thought she was very tactful how she prepped for the precedure. It was so worth it not having to deal with the stress of driving to the vet, waiting in a sterile room and have my animal subject to undue fear. This was the best final act of kindness I could give to my best friend.
Zack admirably served not only as a Pet Therapy volunteer at St. Joseph’s Hospital- Orange, CA, but as my canine partner with HOPE Animal Assisted Crisis Response- serving those affected by crisis and disaster. Zack was a rescue that achieved highest ranks in obedience training yet could easily switch roles in comforting others. Zack’s passing was peaceful, dignified and compassionately administered. Our own pain aside, the positive experience reinforced the value and importance of in-home euthanasia and, most importantly, ensured Zack’s transition to a more comfortable existence with the love of his earthly family at his side. On November 28, 2016, Zack was set free from the pain that robbed him of his quality of life. In his short eleven years, clearly, he deserved to pass with as much comfort and dignity as he gave to others. Zack’s legacy lives on in the many lives he touched. A memorial brick was laid in his honor at the War Dogs Memorial/March Air force Base- Riverside, CA. I can take comfort knowing that we gave him the best both in life and as he journeyed through death.
