Our vision is to lead the way in the veterinary and animal welfare sector within our collection areas offering specialist veterinary services and accessible pet cremation to all.
Our mission, first and foremost, is to commemorate the special and unique lifelong bond that people have with their companions. That is why we work hard to raise awareness of pet bereavement with Compassion Understood working with the veterinary profession – empowering pet owners through education and choice.
We believe that all pets that we have cared for and have enriched our lives should receive a dignified farewell. As pet owners, all companions that are entrusted to Paws & Cherish will be cared for as if they were our own.
We believe that all pet owners are individuals. Respecting their personal needs, we act with empathy, honesty and compassion at all times.
Raising awareness of pet bereavement
As well as providing services to individuals, Paws & Cherish also works to raise awareness of the importance of understanding pet bereavement. We are happy to recommend Compassion Understood which aims to provide both practical advice and support to pet owners and help educate the veterinary industry on the subject of pet bereavement.
