The loss of my almost 16 year old Maine Coon, Hoss, was almost more than I could bear. To be able to help him cross the bridge from his own backyard, no cars, no clinics, was the most beautiful gift to me at this devastating time. Dr. Simpson gently entered the yard and with the utmost of discretion and kindness, guided us though this painful time with quiet dignity and peace. I cannot imagine ever doing this most difficult of pet owner responsibilities any other way again.

Thank You, Dr. Simpson, for offering the most beautiful service I could have envisioned for those of us who decide to care for our little borrowed angels. I am beyond grateful.

Kali was such a sweet girl. Never jumped on anyone or bit them. She was such a gentle girl. She will be missed so much. May she Rest In Peace.

Yesterday we had to have our precious precious 11 year old golden retriever, Ruby, put to rest after her battle with cancer. It was the most difficult decision I have ever had to make, but I know it was the right one. Ruby was quite a character and was so loving and fun. She did not drink out of a regular dog bowl, but preferred to turn the bathtub faucet on to drink. She was a calming force in my life and life will not be the same without her. Dr. Simpson came into our life after prayers for guidance from above. She is wonderful. Dear God watch over Ruby until I am there to help out!

Ms. Harley

Tuesday, July 11, 2017 was a sad day for us. We put to sleep our beautiful, perfectly marked, 17-year-old tabby. As soon as we saw Ms. Harley, we knew she was a part of our family. Ms. Harley, freed from a shelter, spent the remaining 7 years of her life, loved and coddled and spoiled. She had been ailing the last few months, but we realized only recently how much pain she was enduring. Her leap into peace came with the help of Dr. Kim Simpson, a truly loving and compassionate veterinarian that helps people like us deal with the decisions to be made and the pain associated with a pet’s final hours. Her prayers at the end comforted us and they will be with us as we grieve Harley’s passing. SG and JH

Our sweet precious Loki was with us for 17 years. She was born in January of 2000, in Phoenix AZ. She was a charmer, with her curly monkey tail, long eyelashes and demanding presence. She loved sitting on the lap of her favorite human, getting chin rubs and if you stopped petting her before she was ready, she would just head-butt your hand until you gave in and started petting her again. Her favorite toys were her tennis ball and her troll doll. She would hook a claw into her tennis ball, throw it up in the air and then run after it over and over again. She used to spend hours at the top of her cat tower watching the birds outside and chattering at them. Every time we vacuumed the house, she would sit on her ottoman and complain until we put ‘her’ attachment onto the vacuum cleaner and gave her a little vacuuming. She was our funny, quirky, little monkey-tailed girl and we loved her so much. She will be sorely missed and will always have a piece of our hearts. Blessed be little one.

The unconditional love of our dog Sadie. We celebrate her 19 years of life. She was born in 1998 and was 2 years old when we rescued her. My husband Wes and I had not been dating long and we were discussing getting a dog. I said that if we get one, I would like to have a Siberian Husky. one week later at my work place I had just began my new job as receptionist for a Fee attorney’s office and low and behold she showed up at the front door our business. Looking through the glass at me was a beautiful brown and white husky with turquoise eyes. I tried to find the original owners for 6 wks, but to no avail. I knew she was a gift from God and she was perfectly made for our family. Three weeks later we were the proud parents of 8 husky/ Rottweiler puppies. They all had crystal blue eyes and a husky tail; the rest was Rottweiler. It sounds like a strange combination, but they were precious. Everywhere I took Sadie they would call her the angel dog. But when I took her for walks everyone would get out of our way, because they thought she was a wolf. We had them fooled didn’t we Sadie! Her favorite movie was Snow Dogs, her favorite food was bread; she was a carbolic like me. We had a stable where we boarded our horses and I took Sadie for the first time. There was a cat that had a litter and when I went to check on her the kittens were crawling all over her. She just lay there as regal as ever as if this were just an everyday moment. I could fill a book with Sadie moments. She left a almost twenty year legacy of memories, including her bittersweet departure. She got so many kisses and I love you; enough to last an eternity. Other than God, there is no love that you can share than the unconditional love of a pet. Sadie is a household word under our roof. We love you Sadie Bear, but now you will eat at the table Of Jesus Himself. This is comforting to us. Thank you Dr. Simpson for being there for her last moments and for a peaceful departure from this life to the next. God bless you! Brenda and Wes, the proud parents of Sadie Wessels.

Our whole family is going to miss the unconditional love, fierce protection, and many laughs that we have shared G. Thank you for a loyal 11 years. We love you baby and praise God for the blessing you were to our hearts!


If Nichole could write this to Dr. Kim, I know she would say….thank you so much for being such a caring, calming presence for me and my family. Thank you for letting me rest, it’s been a long 16 years and I’m tired and I’m hurting but my body wouldn’t quit, thank for you helping it do that.

Thank you so much for coming out to our home and making Nichole’s last hour much more calming than if we had to drive her to our regular Vet. Having been dumped when she was a pup on our road, she was terrified of cars and we didn’t want her final hour terrified. Your sweet presence and demeanor was so comforting to us, you are an Angel to all the fur babies that need your care. Thank you so very much.
