"The relationship with people and the animals in their lives is one of unconditional love and companionship. We open our lives, our homes and our hearts to these trusting beings in return for never-ending love and devotion. When our pets become ill or have reached the end of their life span, it is heart breaking. There are ways to make this new reality a bit easier for the person and pet involved... The reality is that this is the loss of a family member and should be handled as such." - Pet Chaplain and ordained interfaith Minister, Reverend Karen Orr.
