Unique Animal Hospice and Caregiving Event Offers Support for Your Pet’s Quality of Life

This weekend I will be appearing at AHELP (Animal Hospice and End-of-Life Project) as a co-facilitator for their first in a series of workshops:

When: Sunday, September 19, 2010, 1:00-4:00 pm
Where: at the historic Kirkland Women’s Club, 407 First Street, Kirkland, WA 98033
Cost: $36
Registration: online at Partners to the Bridge

The event will feature speakers from varied backgrounds and professions, and will focus on maximizing quality of life for our animal friends and their people after diagnosis of a life limiting condition, a growing movement in the American veterinary community. There will also be a panel of pet owners who will share experiences with their own animals during chronic illness and in end-of-life. AHELP’s message is directed to families with chronically ill, geriatric, or special needs pets with increased daily levels of caregiving, and is also appropriate for veterinarians and their support staff, and this workshop will provide the background for all future workshops.

Take-away literature will be available at the event on Sunday, as well as many unique and novel networking opportunities. Caregivers will leave the workshop with tools and resources to assist them in planning for this challenging, yet memorable time.

There is also a raffle filled with items contributed by local businesses. Wild Reiki and Shamanic Healing is contributing two items to the raffle: a signed copy of Tails of a Healer: Animals, Reiki and Shamanism, which contains several stories about animals and the benefits of energy healing for end of life, and a smudge kit which is useful for clearing home, people and animals of heavy energy.

AHELP’s goal is to empower the caregiver and build a community of like-minded individuals from all backgrounds, interests, and all walks of life. You can register online at Partners to the Bridge. I hope to see you there!

  1. I simply adore this post and would love more information on how I may be able to set up a Hospice for elderly pets, terminally ill pets, etc. I have been in search of learning Reiki for Canines as well.

    Thank you for sharing this and maybe you may know where I can obtain information on caring for Elderly pets.

  2. Hi Jennifer, I may have more online information for you after networking at the event. For now I encourage you to take a class in Reiki, which was my doorway to energy medicine and working with animals. You don’t have to find a class that addresses working with animals specifically, there was no such thing when I took Reiki training (-:

    Instead, find a Reiki Master teacher that you feel comfortable with and take a Level I class. Then, ask all your friends if you can practice on their animals, and ask the animals if they will teach you how to work with them. You’d be surprised what you can learn that way!

    Best wishes to you in your endeavors, and if you need any guidance on finding a Reiki Master teacher I offer some tips in the post “Dr. Oz Declares Reiki His #1 Alternative Medicine Secret, Tips on Choosing a Teacher” here on my blog.
