Our pets are members of our family
The death of a pet hits us hard, and we need practices to integrate the loss and to find a healing path through it. Pet death is especially difficult for children, and for parents trying to help them meet it well.
Support during a pet’s death can help our souls adjust to the loss.
Yes, it was sad, but they weren’t afraid. They understood what was happening and that we were going to be okay, together.”

Support for Children
A child’s first experience with death often involves a pet, and how they’re supported to meet this loss can determine how they meet future deaths.
If your children are losing their beloved pet, I can help you to help them.
It can be difficult to know how to care for an ill pet, and if —or when— to euthanize.
If you’re walking your pet through their dying time and need some support, I can help you find your way through the hard decisions.
Pet Euthanizing Ceremonies
If it’s time to euthanize your pet, you want the process to be as sacred and loving as possible.
Working with your vet, I can facilitate a ritual to bring grace and peace to the experience.

Support your pet, support your family, support yourself
As a pet owner and an animal lover, I know how deep these relationships are. The love we share with our pets is unconditional, and our grief at their deaths can be profound.
I’d be honoured to support you through this journey.
“It was an incredibly healing day with my beloved cat. I would never have realized that this was an option without Sarah’s gentle guidance. I will always be immensely grateful to her.”
