Sunset Visit - In-Home Euthanasia Service - White Whiskers
  • Sunset Visit

    They’ve given us endless love and loyalty throughout their lives and have stood by us even when things were scary…

    However, when our pets need our help at the end, we’re the ones who are called on to be brave. It takes courage to pick up the phone and it takes selflessness and a stronger kind of love to give them permission to transition beyond their failing bodies.

    At-home Euthanasia

    Nobody wants to have to say goodbye, but when that time inevitably comes, White Whiskers can help make your friend’s passing as gentle, loving and beautiful as possible. Our staff has years of experience guiding pet owners, like you, through this hardest of transitions. Our in-home service ensures that you and your animal remain in comfortable, familiar surroundings without the stress or trauma of transporting an ailing pet.

    When we arrive at your home, we will perform a “peace of mind” exam that will provide the information that we need in order to move forward comfortably and safely. This brief and gentle exam allows us to reassure you that you are indeed making the RIGHT decision. The Sunset visit is focused entirely on relieving suffering and with that in mind, we will help your pet wherever they feel the safest and most relaxed. During our visit, we ensure that you understand what is happening with your pet and what to expect along the way and we provide the necessary time and space for you to celebrate your friend and to say good-bye.

    For those who desire, we can facilitate aftercare arrangements so that your focus can remain squarely on the final moments with your beloved friend. We are proud to partner with the compassionate folks at Lasting Paws Pet Memorial.

    When it’s finally time to say goodbye you want the support of a friend and neighbor.

    The last thing you can do for your pet is to not let them suffer as you see your cat in decline. I usually have a cat go into stress and then rush to the emergency vet. I wish had the chance to keep my previous cat at home his last hours in a place he knew and felt safe. White Whiskers came to my home and provided a calm and caring experience to say good bye to my last cat Oscar. I wish in past years I had this opportunity for my other cats. It makes a tough decision a little easier. I didn’t see Oscar suffer. It is still sad to see them go.

    Understanding the different cremation options available to you through our aftercare partners is extremely important to ensure that you receive the exact service that fits your needs. Please familiarize yourself with the options listed below and know that if you have any further questions, you can always contact us for clarification.

    Private cremation provides you with the opportunity to keep your pet’s cremated remains as a permanent and personal keepsake. When you choose private cremation, your treasured pet will be the only pet in the cremation chamber during the cremation process. When the cremation process is complete, we ensure that you receive only the cremated remains of your pet.

    Individual cremation provides you with the opportunity to keep your pet’s cremated remains as a permanent and personal keepsake. When you choose individual cremation, your treasured pet is placed into the crematory and separated from the other pets with partitions. When the cremation process is complete, we ensure that you receive only the cremated remains of your pet in your choice within our hand-carved wooden urn.

    With communal cremation, your pet is gently placed into the crematory together with other pets. The ashes of those who receive a communal cremation are spread throughout a mountain nature preserve by our aftercare facility. Because no cremated remains are returned to you when you choose a communal cremation, you may wish to consider one of our personalized memorial items as a timeless remembrance.

    Memorial Items

    After so much time together, there’s often no shortage of small remembrances of our friends left around the house: countless photos, a bed, a grizzled toy, perhaps even tooth-marks on an old piece of furniture. Still, many of us need every piece of them we can hold onto and every memory we can spark. For those times, we do have options.

    Clay Paw Prints

    Our clay paw prints are expertly produced by our friends at Lasting Paws Pet Memorial Service. They are available in two colors of clay, white and terracotta. Each paw print proudly features your pet’s name. Unbaked options are available for additional customization allowing for the addition of tags or special charms.

    INK and Nose PRINTS

    Ink prints of both the paw and the nose are available from our friends at Lasting Paws Pet Memorial Service. Each impression is lovingly made on high quality paper.

    Artist memorializations

    We have amazing artistic talent in the Colorado Springs region. White Whiskers has worked hard to generate a database of talented artists who specialize in immortalizing our pets in all kinds of different mediums. It’s never too soon to artistically celebrate your best friend.

    Contact us with your idea and we’ll help pair you with the perfect artist for you.
