Our experience with Angel's Paws has been above and beyond our expectations! Several months ago we began the journey of finding someone or a service in Cincinnati which shared our desire to support the need of our 15 year old Golden Retriever, who suddenly, lost function of the hind legs. After talking with our primary Veterinarian we were sent home and instructed to plan for just a few more weeks together. Gratefully, we learned about Angel's Paws, and enrolled in the Pet Parent Peace of Mind® Program in March 2016. Over the past several months, we have needed to contact Angels Paws for assistance during the week, over a holiday and even very early on a weekend. Each call is answered promptly with genuine interest, care, and support such as sending a Vet Tech or Veterinarian to our home for something as simple as nail trimming, to evaluating and assisting with a therapeutic need, or to discuss our needs and feelings as we continue to support and provide care to our Golden. Thanks to Angel's Paws responsiveness and informative staff, all our calls continue to be answered directly or within the hour for non-emergent needs.The service provided offers support for our enrolled Golden and us the caregivers! Given that we both work full time and managing a number of other professional responsibilities, Angel's Paws meets our needs and that of our beloved Golden still after seven months. It is a piece of mind, and reassuring experience that words can not express. If you are not sure what to do just pick up the phone and call Angel's Paws. We no longer have to wait on hold, explain our dogs history with each call, or call hoping we can be seen that same day; as we have a work schedule that at times is not convenient, for when your pet needs care. Additionally we no longer have to lift, carry or drive to numerous appointments or consultations, knowing you may not see the same veterinarian with each visit. Our needs and that of our Golden continue to be supported as if we have just enrolled yesterday. Looking forward, we are thankful to Angel's Paws for their services, genuine compassion and knowledgeable staff. I do not know where we would be or if we would still be with our beloved Golden. We have been blessed to have these past 7 months with our Golden, and to experience this journey together. Thank you Angel's Paws, you have enriched our Golden's last several months (in fact we will be celebrating with our Golden, who turns 16 years old next week) and our lives too. Thank you again!

AKA: Good Boy, Buddy, Silly Goose, Maximilian the Short, and Maximilian J. Weiner-dog.
Max was Cliff’s dearest pal and Charlene’s boon companion for nearly 14 years. Max loved to run, jump, play, and fly – which led to spinal surgery in 2000 and again in 2003, and a more sedate life style. He still enjoyed chasing a ball, even if he could no longer do it by pushing it off from the top of the stairs. He loved to shake his Fuzzy and flip it into the air. He loved to run around squeaking that Fuzzy – “kill” Fuzzy! He would often sit up to show how strong his back really was; he took great pleasure in snoozing on the deck in the sun and definitely enjoyed a wonderful life.
He was a devoted friend and loved by the extended family. Now he can rest. He has been released from the horrible confusion of his dementia, the encroaching blindness and deafness and the rapidly increasing weakness in his hind legs.
Hopefully Max will reunite with Cliff and Charlene again someday. Max and his family received end-of-life care and assistance from Angel’s Paws.
Tammy and Katie,
Thank you for helping us say goodbye to our loving, sweet, faithful companion of over 14 years yesterday. It was no doubt the hardest thing we have ever done, but your support and guidance made Chico's transition peaceful and gentle, and allowed us to let him go in the most loving way possible. I cannot imagine having done this any other way and am so thankful to have found you just when we needed you. Words cannot express the gratitude for the dignity and respect you showed to him, and for the kindness and compassion you showed to us.
He is forever in our hearts, and we are forever grateful to you and your team.

I wanted to express my deepest Thank you for what you did for my family and Kima. She went so peaceful and with dignity. We may not be together in the way we use to be, but we are still connected by a cord that no eye can see.
We will all miss you pretty girl
Dear Tammy and Dr. Kate,
You have my utmost admiration for helping my mom, let her Willow, finally find peace and cross over the Rainbow Bridge. Dr. Kate, is the most wonderful and compassionate person I have ever met; her unconditional love she showed for Willow's well-being was a God Send! I am so glad I found you and want to say thank you for your quick response in this sad time today. It is such a hard thing to watch your animal pass away, but Willow was in her home snuggled in moms arms on her bed. Once again, thank you.
