Compassionate Goodbyes™ is a not-for-profit organization providing thought leadership and an evidence-based yet compassion-first approach to bereavement care for those who suffer the death of an animal friend.

Recognizing the significant bonds people form with their animal companions and the profound loss they often feel when those animals die, Compassionate Goodbyes is committed to training veterinary professionals in a relationship-based standard of care they may not otherwise be prepared to deliver.

Veterinary clinic staff want to provide the best client experience possible, but doing so can often lead to compassion fatigue and burnout. Compassionate Goodbyes programming builds competencies and resilience while creating a consistent standard of care.
