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.

Orange County Partners
Dr. Elizabeth Benson
Dr. Benson serves Orange County, San Diego and Temecula. It is very difficult to lose a beloved pet. Dr. Elizabeth Benson created Paws into Grace for in home pet euthanasia because she believes pet parents prefer to have those final moments be in the comfort of home. She started one of the first mobile hospice practices in Southern California in 2007.
Dr. Benson and the Paws Into Grace team offers grief support, home euthanasia, hospice and quality of life appointments. Often times, a pet is given a terminal diagnosis such as cancer or kidney failure but what is overlooked and not spoken about in enough detail is what to do next. How do we keep them comfortable at home? How do we know when it is time? What signs will my pet experience as this progresses? When is intervention needed?
Dr. Benson understands the importance of giving family the tools to keep a pet comfortable at home. It is so important to offer a service that not only helps a beloved pet transition peacefully at home but supports a family thru all the stages. Dr. Benson is available 7 days of the week and evenings.
