Peace be with You during this Time in your Life!
We heard about Paws into Grace through our local vet. When we called Dr. Benson was so open with her schedule and was able to come in the evening. The kindness and love that she shared with us and especially our Phantom Boy was so very special. She kissed him and loved him. Being able to say goodbye that way was so meaningful.
Thank you Dr Benson!!
Yesterday morning I woke up to discover my 15 year old cat Simba very ill.
He was moaning and obviously in pain. There was a growing tumor in his belly, and unfortunately we had arrived at the end of the road. It is not easy to find an in home euthanasia service on Sunday morning but we called at 7am and left a message and we received a call at 8am, and Dr. Pandi was here soon after that. It was an emergency, we could not allow our little guy to suffer and needed someone right away.
Dr. Pandi arrived and took time to explain everything and put us all at ease, including Simba. I cannot begin to express how gentle, kind, and compassionate she was. She helped our family when we were in a desperate situation. This service is a much better alternative then taking an ill pet to the clinic where there is all the commotion and noise and activity and travel, not to mention little privacy for such a private need.
After Simba died we were very upset and did not have a chance to thank Dr. Pandi, so… THANKS DR PANDI!!!
Paws Into Grace was the best *last* thing I could have done for my pet. Fantastic, compassionate, gentle.EXCELLENT.
My 16 year old Snowshoes cat, Snootchies
Had been fighting hyperthyroidism and kidney disease (which was caused by the thyroid meds). When I knew it was time, I scheduled a Euthanasia appointment with my vet, but after I hung up the phone, I started to have second thoughts about it.
I did not want her to get stressed out at the end of her life. I started to wonder if there was a home euthanasia service and then I found Transitions. I did not end up using Transitions only because they were booked up on the day I needed. I was about to hang up the phone when I was referred to Paws Into Grace. I left a voicemail but did not expect to get any return call that same day, only because I knew the whole thing was so “last minute”.
Dr. Benson returned my call within 20-30 minutes. Relief started to wash over me when she told me that she did have an availability for the same day. Dr. Pandi contacted me a few hours later to confirm our appointment time. She arrived right on schedule and was very compassionate and kind to my cat in her last moments. The whole procedure went better than I could have ever hoped and knowing that my Snootchies was relaxed and comfortable in her familiar surroundings made the whole ordeal easier to handle.
Saying goodbye is hard enough, and when you have an ailing pet, being unable to ease their suffering is torture for the pet owner. However, being able to minimize their trauma and pain is probably one of the last gifts you can give to your pet.
Dr. Pandi gave us the time we needed to say our goodbyes. We never felt rushed, or that we were just another stop on her list of house calls.
I wholeheartedly recommend Paws Into Grace!!!
It’s hard to write a review about such a traumatizing event. But if there EVER was a way to make such a thing easier, Dr. Benson and Paws Into Grace make that possible.
Animals are sensitive and intuitive in my mind — and as much as their human companions, they want comfort during their transition to the non-physical, and I’m sure, would rather be in familiar surroundings with loved ones.
Dr. Benson helped me with that journey with my dear, precious kitty, and I have referred her services to my friends, as well. All have thanked me for letting them know about this in-home service.
I am forever grateful to my dear furry friend for blessing my life and giving me so much unconditional love, and I will always be grateful to Dr. Benson. She does such a challenging job with compassion, professionalism, and sensitivity. Thank you.
Our hearts are still throbbing with pain (& probably will for a long time)
But we are so grateful for your assistance yesterday! Thank you for helping us end our beloved Blake’s suffering in as peaceful of a way as we could imagine! Your genuine compassion during such a difficult time for us was most appreciated.
We’ll forever be grateful!

My beautiful Tessie, there are no words to describe you other than Joy. You were my dearest companion and friend. I wish I could have done more for you my little monster. I will love you forever. Run free little one. I miss you every single day. ~ Julia ~
Memories of C.J.
Just wanted to thank Julie for helping us say goodbye to C.J. , our Golden of 13 years on Sunday 2.26. He was surrounded by his family and happy to be at home one last day. How do you say goodbye to your friend, protector and constant companion? I don’t believe we ever will. For now we will just say farewell, until we meet again. All our lives have been richer, happier and certainly more blessed because we shared them with C.J.
He came to be with me by chance. He started as a Birthday gift I didn’t really want, but now cant imagine my life without. He was such a baby when I got him that he sucked my thumb at night to go to sleep as he curled in my lap for the first month. He would walk by my side without a leash and amaze everyone with his good manners and sweet face. The beach and Idyllwild were his favorite playgrounds. He went everywhere with me.
There are so many memories that we will forever hold in our hearts. We miss you terribly, C.J. Enjoy your wings! Keep your watch over us from wherever great dogs go! We think about you EVERY day!!
Memories of Molly and Baxter
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you both for being such lovely people. You showed such understanding and sensitivity during this process. First with Molly in November of last year and now with Baxer. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate having your services available! We are having a hard time feeling such a void, such emptiness in our lives. You can imagine!
They were the best loving dogs, the best companions, the best therapy dogs while I went through 2 cancers myself. They had the best dispositions, personalities. Baxter was the runt of the litter; he was so good looking and such a trooper adjusting to losing his leg! Molly was as sweet as her name; she loved to be held and would melt into you. They loved to sun-bathe in the back yard. I could go on and on about these two…..So yes, I do plan to make a book about these two, they were such characters and we were so blessed to have them in our lives and blessed to have been able to find you guys.
Thank you and with so much gratitude

Farewwell Miss Ella
We want to thank all of you for your genuine compassion and care when Ella reached the point where all we could do for her was keep her comfortable until the time came when that was no longer an option. We could never and would never let our girl suffer. With your help and guidance we were able to keep her pain free, stress free and in her home with those who loved her dearly until her passing. For this gift we are truly grateful to you all.
How can we even begin to thank you for your strength during a time when we needed it most. Your compassion, kindness and honest concern for Ella’s peaceful passing will never be forgotten. Never. Thank you both from the bottom of our hearts.
I truly hope that people will find that Paws into Grace is a service that is long overdue in the veterinary field. From the first phone call to the last we were treated with respect and true kindness. Your hospice care was the best gift we could give to our girl. No stressful visits to the vets office. No cold steel tables, unfamiliar people and smells, unnecessary painful tests that were useless and cost a fortune. Not to mention the stress that I feel most animals have when going to the doctors office in general.
It will be a awhile yet before we are able to look back on Ella’s life with smiles and laughter as we are still grieving so. But, comfort does come knowing there are people like you offering a service with such love. We are forever grateful.
Our heartfelt thanks, always,
Roxanne, Bob and Miss Ella
