Faithful Friend is Here for You!
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.
Since being founded in 2017 we are grateful to have helped more than two thousand pets and their families with this transition. Our goal is to continue to make a comfortable end of life attainable for as many pets as possible.
Serving the following areas: Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln, Granite Bay, Citrus Heights, Folsom, Fair Oaks, Carmichael, Loomis, Antelope, Sacramento, West Sacramento.
Additional fee for other outlying areas including: Yuba City, Marysville, Auburn, and El Dorado Hills.
Includes an initial telephone/text/e-mail consultation with Dr. Sarah to discuss if it is the right time to euthanize your pet (if needed), 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 of your beloved pet. If needed she will respectfully transport your pet from your home to a crematorium. Cremation of your pet is an additional fee which includes the transportation and making the arrangements with the crematorium (see Cremation Services page).

Please note: *For pets over 40 pounds Dr. Sarah will require that someone be available to help her lift the pet if you wish for her to make cremation arrangements for you or there will be an additional charge for her to bring an assistant.

Cremation - Prices Vary
If you do not have aftercare plans for your pets remains such as home burial or taking them to a crematory yourself, then Dr. Sarah can provide transportation of your pet to a local licensed crematorium. We offer either a communal cremation or a private cremation.
For a communal cremation NO ashes will be returned to you. A private cremation means that your pet will be individually cremated in a private chamber and their ashes will be returned in a wooden box urn either by pickup at the crematory or mailing to your home.
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.
