Support for Pet Caregivers

February 18th, 2016


Day By Day Pet Caregiver Support, a 501 c (3) organization, is dedicated to providing no cost compassionate support to pet caregivers through the grief that comes before, during and after the loss of a beloved pet.

A first of its kind organization, Day By Day is focused on providing a safe non-judgmental environment for emotional support as well as educational tools to help pet parents become more informed caregivers. As such, the organization aims to help pet caregivers in handling pet caregiving challenges and when making future health or end-of-life decisions for their pets.

By providing an atmosphere of empathy, pet caregivers will find understanding through Day By Day’s resources and services. Day By Day’s educational tools assist pet caregivers in communicating more effectively with their veterinary team which will lead to a better understanding of treatment options and the ability to make educated decisions about their pet’s future care.

Veterinarians are skilled in diagnosing and treating pets however, they are often not trained in providing end-of-life emotional support that pet caregivers desire. Day By Day is here to function as a compassionate extension of the veterinary experience so pet caregivers know they are not alone.

Services provided at no cost through Day By Day include monthly in-person support circles, 24/7 telephone hot line, individual and family counseling, an internet Yahoo Group, monthly online support chats, and a comprehensive website offering a listing of additional pet care giving services and resources.
