  • End of Life Services

    Because we advocate for the humane treatment of animals, we believe it's important to recognize when a pet’s health is beyond rehabilitation. Our staff is here to provide compassion and care when making the difficult decision.

    This service is available by appointment only. Making an appointment allows our staff to make sure they are available to provide care and support. To make an appointment, please call 360.213.2621. We are unable to accommodate unscheduled requests.
