AHELPer volunteers in the Caregiver Support Program provide comprehensive care with both trained AHELPers and Professional Network Members, learning from one another through working together as an interdisciplinary team. AHELPers connect with families over Zoom with the Animal Hospice Team Manager to and participate in ongoing email and phone support.

Our training and mentorships offer unique opportunities to learn about the developing field of animal hospice and palliative care.

You would be a great fit as an Animal Caregiver Support AHELPer if you have also been inspired by personal experience with your own animal(s) in the end of life.

  • experience in human hospice, experience in animal end-of-life,
  • talents and skills in animal services like bodywork or energy work,
  • talents and skills in family services like counseling and social work.

With tools, training, and a compassionate heart, our community of AHELPers understand what caregivers are going through at this bittersweet time. Make a difference for caregivers and their animal family members! Please reach out to learn more about how you can become an AHELPer today!

Through evaluating choices, decision making assistance, and companionship, caregivers can prepare for their loss and feel empowered to act on their plans for their animal companion's peaceful farewell.
