From Dr. Dunne

"I started Paws in Your Heart because I believe the greatest gift you can give your pet after a lifetime of them loving you is letting go.  Our pets give unconditional love to their human families and in return we honor our pets by giving them a dignified and peaceful passing. The first pet I had to say goodbye to was Peri, a retired guide dog, when I was 12 years old.  Over the years, I have had to say goodbye to many of my own personal pets whose memories live on in my heart.   Over the last 16 years  in veterinary medicine, I have euthanized pets in companion animal practices, at the animal shelter, and in the homes of friends.  Providing home hospice and euthanasia services, allows me to give you and your pet a loving and peaceful the end of life."
