The Fort Worth Star-Telegram ran a major feature about new trends in pet end-of-life care on Monday, November 30.
It focused on Beyond the Rainbow, believed to be the first business of its kind in Texas. Beyond the Rainbow offers complete end-of-life care for pets, including in-home hospice, funerals, cremation and burial. The company is owned by licensed funeral directors Kate Moore and Terry Branson, who have a combined 60 years in the human funeral industry. They’ve brought together veterinarians, chaplains and counselors to help families deal with pet loss.
Pet hospice — palliative care designed to keep pets pain-free and comfortable in their homes until they die — is becoming a trend.
Humans, take note!
