Animal Hospice Group - Quote

"One of the most important things students can learn from our certification program is how to work with both the animal and its family as a single unit, all the while appreciating that they are part of the same equation. If we can teach our students how to help caregivers assist their animal companions in a manner that is both consistent with hospice principles and respectful of the animal's will to live, we will have reached our certification goal."

~ Dr. Kathryn D. Marocchino, AHG Founder
