Animal Well-Being is a Human Responsibility and WE ARE THEIR VOICES.
Being a responsible pet parent means being in tune with your pet’s health to recognize any changes that may be occurring. Prepare for future issues by educating yourself about pet health, symptoms and behavior. Our knowledgeable staff would like to share a few links to help you in that process:

The Association for Pet Loss and Bereavement is a group of professionally trained volunteers in pet bereavement-counseling and are here for you. Founded in 1997 by Dr. Wallace Sife, Ph.D., as a local support group that stemmed from a book he authored, The Loss of a Pet; a book he wrote following the 1987 loss of his beloved “Edel Meister”. Our pets are our children…our family, and the loss of a family member can affect many aspects of our lives. Our beloved animal friends have brought us together, and in honor of them, the APLB provides assistance to anyone who requests it.
