When caring for an older pet, you’re not alone

As Seattleites, many of our families include dogs, cats and the scatterings of many other types of pets.  For most of us, our dedications to them is  unwavering, even when the days of romping in the hills have begun to wane.

It’s natural to feel the stress and uncertainty of caring for an older pet and even those pets who are preparing to ‘cross the rainbow bridge’.

That’s why a group of volunteers formed AHELP – Animal Hospice and End-of-Life Palliative Care Project.  AHELP is holding an open house to connect people with resources in the community.  See the details below or at AHELP’s website.
