In-Home Euthanasia Service

We understand that deciding when and where to euthanize your pet can be one of the most difficult issues a pet owner may ever have to deal with. It is a personal decision that can be stressful for both the pet owner as well as the pet. For this reason, many of our clients choose to have a veterinarian come to their home in order to perform the euthanasia procedure. This allows the pet owner (and family) to be together with their beloved animal in a place which is familiar to all. After the procedure is finished, your pet will be transported to our cremation facility with the utmost care and compassion.

Angel Paws Pet Cremation has partnered with several community veterinarians who understand the strong bonds which are formed between families and their animals. These veterinarians hold the same high standards that we do and we consider them to be men and women who conduct themselves in a professional and compassionate manner.

If you are interested in the Angel Paws In-Home Euthanasia Service, then please contact one of the veterinarians below to discuss the details of this service. If you decide to utilize a particular doctor, then the doctor will contact our office to arrange the home pickup of your beloved animal.

dr-elizabeth-benson-200x300Elizabeth Benson

Dr. Elizabeth Benson grew up in a small town along the Chesapeake Bay. From the time she was a small child she dreamed of helping to comfort and heal all animals. She moved to New England graduating from University of New Hampshire and then completed a degree in Veterinary Medicine at Atlantic Veterinary College. Following veterinary school she completed an internship, where she was given the opportunity to practice with board certified surgeons and internal medicine specialists. She then moved to beautiful San Diego where she accepted a position as an emergency veterinarian. Dr. Benson loved treating her patients but soon realized that many were frightened just by walking through the clinic doors. There were so many strange smells in their unfamiliar surroundings. She believes all veterinarians need to offer a peaceful transition for pets in those last moments. So she then started “Paws into Grace” to help provide pets the opportunity to leave us with grace, surrounded by those they love. Often times, a few local veterinarians offered appointments during regular business hours, but there was not much available to the client who required evening and weekend service. This was where the idea for “Paws into Grace” originated.

Our dachshund was taken by a hive of African bees. Traumatic on the kids, and us. We decided to cremate and plan to place some ashes and plant into a tree urn so his life continues. The guys at Angel Paws were very kind and helpful. The service was fast and he came back to us within a week. The wooden urn supplied in our package was very nicely personalized. I recommend this company to help in these sad situations

Angel Paws Pet Cremation is a fantastic pet crematory. I lost a cat of 16 years that I really loved, but what they provide gave me closure she's at peace. They gave me a bit of her hair, along with a paw print, two poems, a certificate of cremation, and a beautiful box with her name on it. Coming from San Diego, this was absolutely worth the drive.

I have had a terrible experience with this place so far. After being told I can come back in and pick up the remains of my dog, I have stopped by twice during advertised business hours (online and on the door); both during the week... once around 11 AM and once around 3 PM. With both instances there was nobody on site and nobody answered the phone. This place needs to get their act together if they are going to be in a sensitive industry. Still trying to collect remains. Would never recommend after such an unprofessional experience.
