Dr. Sarah founded Faithful Friend because she believes that a home euthanasia is a loving, peaceful way let your pet end their life surrounded by the people they love in the home they are comfortable in.
Faithful Friend exists to help make a comfortable end of life attainable for as many pets as possible.

This includes an initial telephone consult with Dr. Sarah to discuss if it is the right time to euthanize your pet, going over any questions you have, and setting up an appointment time.
Dr. Sarah will travel to your home at the agreed time and provide everything needed for sedation and humane euthanasia. She will respectfully transport your pet from your home to a crematorium if you wish. Cremation of your pet is an additional fee (see Cremation Services page) For more details see the Home Euthanasia Appointment page.

Cremation - Prices Vary
These services are provided by a local licensed pet crematorium called Caring Pet Crematory in Sacramento. (www.caringpetcrematory.com)
Dr. Sarah will provide transportation of your pet to the crematorium. If you wish you can arrange for the crematorium to pick up your pet from you for an additional fee. They offer both communal cremation or a private cremation.
For a communal cremation the ashes will not be returned to you. A private cremation means that your pet will be individually cremated and the ashes will be returned to you in a rosewood carved wooden urn.
Cremation fees are not included in the fee for the euthanasia appointment.
Faithful Friend accepts payment in the form of cash, checks, and all major credit cards. We understand that sometimes this is an unexpected expense when a pet declines quickly. We do offer payment plans from ScratchPay which is a company that provides short term loan for veterinary services. If you are interested please visit www.scratchpay.com and fill out an application to find out if you have been approved. When prompted for the veterinary clinic type in Faithful Friend.
We also provide 10% discount on the euthanasia visit to seniors (over age 65) and to veterans. Note- this discount is is for the euthanasia only, not cremation services and you must request the discount when you book your appointment.
