    Why am I here?

    Thank you for entrusting your loved ones with us. Animals need a voice to be heard and someone to translate into words. I can be the voice for them and for many years I have been. We are here when they are born and on their journey through life. We comfort the family when it's time to mourn, I would not change what I do for anything. In fear of missing a puppy breathe, a paw that smells like fritos, or the feline pur and the biggest thing of all unconditional love.
