Our Mission

To provide support, compassion, and genuine attentiveness related to the passing of a beloved animal companion.

Welcome! We are glad you've found us.

Animal Hospice Compassionate Crossings is not a place, but rather a philosophy that promotes healing through shared understanding. We provide support, compassion, and most of all a sense of connection. You are not alone in your time of grief, even if you live in a remote area.

We offer our services to anyone anticipating or coping with the loss of a beloved animal companion. Our group of trained volunteers will visit by telephone, postal mail, or e-mail, with anyone who asks for help in dealing with the loss or impending loss of an animal. We will support the person with communication and insight before, during, and after the death.

We provide compassionate and experienced support, suggest appropriate reading material, and encourage people to share together their feelings of love and loss surrounding their animal. When we suffer a loss, rarely can we find unconditional support and acceptance for our pain. When an animal dies, people who do not understand the depth of love possible between animals and humans are unable to give much comfort to a grieving person during or after the death of an animal. But we understand!

Our telephone helpline is answered daily and calls are returned by a trained and caring volunteer who is there to listen. We are happy to take your call, no matter where you are located. E-mails sent to AHCC are also promptly acknowledged.
