WELCOME TO GENTLE HANDS CHERISHED PAWS
In 2016, after seeing first hand the peace this service afforded so many families, we decided to practice end of life care exclusively and Gentle Hands Cherished Paws was born. Our hope is to continue helping to educate and empower pet parents to better care for their pets during their golden years and to provide support to their families during this difficult transition.

We can’t say enough good things about Dr. Jason and Tory. They are and have been the most comforting and nurturing people. If you are looking for the best end of life care for your pet and for someone who will help you know how and when to make the hard decision, you could not ask for better people. There is nothing more comforting than being able to say goodbye to your loved one in your own home and we are so grateful for Gentle Hands Cherished Paws that they provide this service.
Thank you Dr. Jason and Tory. You each have been given a gift of compassion for both animals and their humans. Losing our dogs has been one of the hardest things we have ever gone through. Thank you for helping us navigate uncharted territory and for making something so sad, a little more beautiful. We are forever grateful.

Recently Moustache Girl, our sweet 6 year old kitty, was diagnosed with intestinal cancer. She had been having episodes of vomiting, lethargy and she lost a lot of weight in a short period of time. My wife and I made the difficult decision to say goodbye and we preferred that this happen in the comfort of our own home and while she still had a little fire left in her. We called Dr. Jason Goodwin with Gentle Hands Cherished Paws and scheduled an appointment for the next morning. When Dr. Jason arrived he gently examined our sweet girl and went over the recent diagnostics performed by our regular veterinarian. We discussed how Moustache Girl had been doing and talked about our concerns for her quality of life and all agreed that this was the best decision for her. Dr. Jason then explained the process to us with his calm demeanor and wonderful bedside manner. We were very happy with the service that Dr. Jason provides and are grateful we got to say goodbye on our terms. We have 2 dogs and another cat and when the time comes Dr. Jason Goodwin with Gentle Hands Cherished Paws will be the first and only person we call. RIP Moustache Girl. We miss and love you always.

On behalf of our whole family, I’d like to thank you for making the passing of Lady dignified and compassionate. You’re professionalism and empathy is truly appreciated.
In 2013 my loving companion, Oliver was diagnosed with degenerative neuropathy. The news was devastating as I knew what was to come. Over the next 2 years his mobility slowly declined. In the beginning his care was monitored by various specialists. Every treatment was exhausted. He also had 2 bouts with cancer and inflammatory bowel disease. About a year ago he went into hospice due to the decline in his mobility. That’s when Dr. Jason and Tory became his primary care givers. They helped keep him comfortable and allowed him quality of life. They gave him and myself the gift of a few more months together. When the time came to say goodbye my family was able to come from out of town to be able to celebrate Oliver’s life with us on his final day. Dr. Jason and Tory arrived and were able to spend some time with all of us and go over in detail the euthanasia process for those family members who were not familiar. When we felt it was time they gave him an injection to sedate him first. We all spent time remembering his life. Once the sedation took effect Oliver relaxed and even started to snore in my arms. The final injection was given and his peaceful passing could not have been more beautiful. The compassion and care Dr. Jason and Tory showed was overwhelming. They were exceptionally respectful of Oliver’s body as he was covered and removed from my house. Not only were they there for Oliver when he needed them, they were there for my family and myself. I could not have asked for a better experience during such a difficult time.
