Engage Our Services
Our compassionate home euthanasia service is one that we have developed with a whole heart and commitment to ensuring a pet can leave this life in the comfort of a familiar environment, in the company of family (if this is desired) and without stress or pain.
Death is a part of our lives at Cherished Pets. And we’re ok with that. It is actually a part of our purpose to support pets and people through end of life.
Through our end of pet life service we provide home based guidance and care to people whose pets are in their final life phases. Whether it be a terminal illness or disorders of old age, our quality of life assessments enable us to create dedicated home-based pet care plans to ensure pets are comfortable and pain free through these final days, weeks and months. We offer home hospice pet care and help people prepare for a pet’s passing.
End of Life Service
The past year has been particularly challenging.
In addition to dealing with the ongoing disruption caused by the COVID pandemic, many people and pets in our community are facing personal crises.
The requests for help that we receive vary day to day. Every pet, every human and every circumstance is unique. However, our ground-breaking and innovative Veterinary Social Work (VSW) service professionally and consistently responds to the daily enquiries and requests.
Please consider giving to our charity, Cherished Pets Foundation, for your end-of-financial-year gift.

We acknowledge the Wadawurrung People of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which we are gathered and pay respects to elders past, present and emerging. We recognise their continuing connection to the land, waterways, and community and acknowledge that this land was never ceded.
As an organisation that values the human-animal bond, we endeavour to learn from, and incorporate Indigenous way of knowing and the idea of oneness into our practice, in order to benefit both the land on which we live and all beings residing upon it.
