Kathleen Cooney, DVM, CHPV, CCFP has been practicing advanced end-of-life care since 2006. She is passionate about home euthanasia and feels every family should have the option. Dr. Cooney has created this site to help families find in-home euthanasia providers in their area. The directory will help them learn about the benefits of in-home euthanasia, find providers easily, thus allowing more pets to be at home, where they want to be. Her mission is to make pet hospice and euthanasia more available for everyone and connect providers together under the common theme of compassionate servitude. Dr. Cooney began one of the first exclusively home euthanasia services in the United States back in 2006. She is well-known for her work in companion animal euthanasia and has authored two books on the subject. Dr. Cooney has collaborated in euthanasia training for the AVMA, AAHA, IAAHPC, HABRI, Fear Free program, and in 2017, launched a certificate program for the Companion Animal Euthanasia Training Academy (CAETA). She is a strong advocate for best practices in all aspects of end-of-life care and speaks nationally and internationally on such topics.
