Without pet parents, Petmasters wouldn't exist. What discount do you offer our dedicated members? (e.g. 20% off their first session, etc.)

I accept only donations. If you can give to the "Helping Paw Fund" it is greatly appreciated. If you are unable to donate, that's okay, I will be there to help you regardless.

Which part of the country do you serve pets?

Nationwide including Puerto Rico, Hawai'i and Alaska. If you have a phone or computer I'm available to you. This also includes International locations. As long as you can speak English (or have an interpreter) I am here for you as well.

What year did you begin serving pets?


How did you hone your craft?

Working as a hospital chaplain and hospice chaplain (for people) and working with veterinarians as an animal chaplain. On-going training/education.

What tip would you give pet parents for working with animals that you've learned as a pro?

If your beloved pet is old or ill please consider pet hospice before euthanasia. Working with your veterinarian in accessing your pet's quality of life we can make the decision for euthanasia based on your pet's individual needs. Timing is everything.

What is one thing you want pet parents to know about you? It can be whatev-fur you'd like!

I am here for you. I can help you to navigate helping your pet during the dying process and to help you in coming to terms with the loss of your beloved pet.
