Kathleen Cooney, DVM, CHPV, CCFP
Since 2006, my focus has been the advancement of quality end-of-life care for companion animals, and more recently, on animal welfare and the ethical approaches to pet aftercare. In 2006, I founded (but no longer own) the company Home to Heaven in Loveland, Colorado, where I honed skills to support patients and clients. I am a past-President of the International Association for Animal Hospice and Palliative Care (IAAHPC). Now through this important consulting work, my wish is to provide end-of-life care training to veterinary team providers and raise awareness for this field.
Today, I am well-known as a leader in the animal hospice movement and in the art of beautiful euthanasia experiences through the Companion Animal Euthanasia Training Academy (CAETA). It has been my honor to publish books, articles, write guidelines, present webinars, and speak at conferences all over the world in promotion of this work. To help advance end-of-life support, I am working on becoming a specialist in Animal Welfare through the American College of Animal Welfare, with expected credentialing in 2023.
My consulting style is to listen first, then find the answers to your needs. We jam-pack our time together with targeted information to address your key objectives, in a useful way that leaves you feeling energized and ready to act. I always offer my first 15 minutes of time at no charge, to make sure I am the best person to help. Email me to get started.
