Welcome To Paws Into Grace
It is very difficult to lose a beloved pet. Paws into Grace was created for home pet hospice care and in-home pet euthanasia because we believe pet owners prefer to have those final moments be in the comfort of home, with family by their side, and where everything is familiar.
Dr. Elizabeth Benson and her team believe it is important to give every family and pet a comforting transition. We are honored to support families in all aspects of the end-of-life process including hospice, compassionate euthanasia, and cremation.

They belonged in the arms of their family.

I wanted to thank you for sending Dr. Brown to euthanize our beloved Myleigh on March 4, 2021. She was compassionate and accommodating, she explained every step of the procedure, and gave us some alone time with Myleigh after she sedated her, but... read more
