I started out 7 or 8 years ago writing sympathy cards for our clients. My husband had euthanized another dog of ours and the staff sent me flowers. As the flowers died, it reminded me “oh yeah, my dog died too” which reopened that wound…so I got the blank cards from El Dorado Arts and began writing “verbal hugs” for people that lost pets, especially to euthanasia. Those “We Care” brochures just add to the comfort and acceptance of grief and the passing of a beloved pet. Just for the record, last year I wrote 315 doggy sympathy and 258 kitty sympathy cards. Death doesn’t take a holiday. Ever. So you understand how valuable and necessary the We Care brochure is.
I wanted to tell you just how effectively they worked. I knew after reading the one sent with my regular cards that they would be a God send. When we got them, my husband Jeff gave one to a long-time client that had been deliberating over euthanasia for a while, wanting him to come to their house to administer to their pet. After they read it, they immediately decided to bring their beloved dog to our hospital to have it done there. You do not know how relieved my husband was that they became so compliant thanks to the brochure. These clients read the booklet and went on the [Pet Parent Referral Website]. It walked them through all the stages of what was to come. Thank you thank you thank YOU!!!!!!!!!!
I know our whole staff greatly appreciates having these helpful “tools” for our clients! Thanks again
