Cowboy

We are forever grateful for your kindness and compassion during this difficult transition. Almost worse than saying goodbye is deciding when to do this. We could no longer see him in pain,, our beautiful Golden of 15 yrs. Thank you for making this so gentle and peaceful for all of us.

“Dr. Simpson was the sweetest, kindest, most compassionate person we could have asked for at one of the hardest times in our life. I pray God blesses her for the work she does helping the whole family through the process. It still brings me to tears a year later just thinking about the prayer she said when I couldn’t even speak. She was definitely a blessing!”

Hoss

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.

Ruby

ruby - Paws at Peace pet hospice

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!

Mr. Leo

Dr. Kim, The Lord has blessed us with the love of many four legged friends over the years, part of that stewardship as we know can call for the difficult decision of mercifully ending the struggles of a dearly loved family. That always difficult decision and process is never easy but the compassion and peace you provided in our home at that very difficult moment was truly a blessing to all. We give thanks to the Lord for your presence in our time of sorrow, you are truly an instrument of Gods loving mercy. May He richly bless you in your ministry of love and compassion… Grace and Peace, Pastor Greg

Drake

Our sweet Drake went on to doggie heaven on June 28th. He was a part of our family for 14 1/2 years and we miss him every single day! Making the decision to transition our beloved Drake was devastatingly difficult, especially for my husband. Without Dr. Simpson’s compassion and assurance I’m not sure we could gone through with our decision.

Thank you Dr. Simpson for the compassion shown that day to both our sweet Drake and my husband and I. Being wit our sweet boy, in the comfort of our home, as he went for his final sleep was so special. Your follow up calls were very much appreciated.

I only wish I had discovered you sooner so our sweet Drake could have been cared for in the comfort of our home his last year. We have two more fur babies and when they can no longer easily travel to and from dr appointments you will be my first call!!

Thank you again!!

Michelle Gregory

Thank you so much for coming to our home to help our sweet Dallas in his greatest time of need. I was nervous before you arrived because, while we had done at-home euthanasia before, we had never met you. You helped us understand more about his cancer and how much it had progressed in such a short time since we learned of it. While my husband knew we were doing the right thing at the right time, I was questioning my decision. After you spoke with me, I knew it was the best thing for Dallas to let him go. You were so compassionate with us and Dallas. Your call the next day to check on us was unexpected but so very appreciated. We will miss him always but know his last moments were comfortable in his home surrounded by love, ours and yours.

Dr. Simpson,

I’m so glad we found you! You helped make a difficult experience much easier to bear. I really appreciated your kind, calm and loving nature. You provide an amazing service. I will tell all the pet parents I know going through a similar situation about you. God bless you!

Warmest regards,

– Elga D

Words cannot express your compassion, professionalism and caring that you extended to me and Zeus today. I am at a loss for words at the way you handled a difficult situation with such dignity. You are truly an Angel. Zeus and I will be forever grateful. Please post on your testimonial page.

Kim M.

We recently lost our awesome Golden, Sophie. Dr. Simpson aided us in making Soph’s last time with us comfortable and peaceful. She was compassionate, patient, and thorough, explaining how she would be taking care of Sophie and ensuring that she would feel no pain and drift away. As difficult as it was, it was reassuring to be with her when she passed, knowing that she knew we were there. Highly recommend Dr. Simpson – she took great care of our girl and supported us during this time. She is quick to respond to messages and she called us the next day to check in. We can’t thank her enough.

– Kim M.

Susan and Rick

Thank you Dr. Simpson for your loving help to send Ozzie to the Rainbow Bridge. I know he is running, and swimming, doing all things he has not be able to do in a long time. Thank you for working with us and ALWAYS being there when we needed you. You gave Ozzie another year with us and we will be forever grateful.

Erika & PJ G.

Over the past year we watched with heartbreak as our precious girl’s health and quality of life deteriorated. At the end we knew it was time to let her go. It was one of the most difficult things we’ve ever had to do. We were so grateful to have found Dr. Kim. She was so kind, knowledgeable and empathetic. She answered all of our questions and treated Loki with dignity and respect. Going through this was not easy, but being able to let Loki pass peacefully at home, in her safe space, surrounded by love was the kindest way to let her leave this world. Dr. Kim, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Terri

Thank you so much for your care and compassion. Molly passed so peacefully in the yard she loved.
The blessing and the plaster paw print were very nice and added much to our experience.
I will recommend Paws at Peace

Cheryl B.

Thank you for helping Tanner’s soul go to Heaven on 12-11-16. Your kindness and comfort did not go unnoticed and was seriously deeply appreciated. I left you the following review on Yelp:

No one likes to make the decision to say goodbye to a beloved pet who is a family member, but it’s the most selfless thing a pet parent can do when their senior dog’s body is shutting down and he’s showing pain despite effort to control and suppress it. I cannot express how comforting it was to have Dr. Simpson come to my home and peacefully send my 14 year old golden retriever to Heaven, taking him from his pain and making his old body new again. I am so grateful she has chosen this as her profession. My golden boy had been a part of my life since he was 6 weeks old and we had the strongest bond. Hardest decision to make in my life, but I’m glad I was led to find Dr. Simpson and she was able, willing, and unrushed to drive across DFW to assist him before driving back the opposite direction for another family. From her gentle nature to her understanding and even a follow up call the next day to check on my well-being made it a comforting and reassuring decision that I had chosen the right person to make my best friend’s transition easier and leave me without regrets. He looked so peaceful and pain-free in his final moments. His soul is in Heaven and his paw prints remain deeply embedded in my heart forever. Thank you Dr. Simpson for helping him. He will be missed.

I would also like to add that your holiday card was so beautiful too. I definitely intend to hold onto it as it brings comfort to see the reflective paw print design.

Tanner will certainly be missed by many. He was not only my best friend, but a volunteer at the Heritage Farmstead Museum in Plano, a retired member of 4 Dog Flight flyball team, a well know member in our community through his involvement with my martial arts school, and through his many community service projects as a very active and decorated Dog Scout with DSA Troop 119. He most recently was selected as the Cover Photo for the Doo The Right Thing 2017 Calendar sponsored by the North Central Texas Council of Governments http://www.nctcog.org/envir/SEEclean/stormwater/program-areas/public_education/pet-DOO.asp

He set a good example and brought smiles to a lot of faces in his 14 years.

Thank you for bringing comfort to his final moments on earth.

Jane H.

My sweet boxer Dixie, 10 years old, recently became gravely ill. She went downhill fast, and the decision to find and contact a pet hospice was traumatic for me. Dr. Simpson answered the phone on a Sunday evening and gave me her next available appointment, Monday morning. Dixie didn’t wait and passed away late Sunday night. Dr. Simpson called me Monday morning and came as soon as possible, a little earlier than the appointment time. I was so sad and emotional, but Dr. Simpson felt like a friend who was there for me on the phone and in person. She had a beautiful dog bed with a comfy warm blanket all set up in the back of the van, and lovingly placed Dixie in the bed. My last view of my dear boxer was her laying in the bed for her last trip in a car, and she looked peaceful and comfortable. I highly recommend this wonderful hospice vet for anyone with fur babies in need. i have an elderly cat who will need Dr. Simpson one day, and knowing she’s available is very comforting. Thanks, Dr. Simpson.

Susan H.

I am so glad that I got to know Dr. Kim and she was able to help both my sweet Golden Retriever Annie and myself at the end of Annie’s life. Annie was a special Golden Retriever who
was diagnosed with osteosarcoma when she was 4 years old and had her Right front leg amputated. She lived another 8 years and I am so thankful for each day I had with her. Her little body wore out and she was struggling her last few days. Dr. Kim made Annie’s passing a peaceful one for Annie and was such a comfort to me as well. I can’t thank her enough for her kindness during this time when my heart was broken.

Wendy R.

Thanks from our hearts and souls for being the loving, kind, and compassionate women you are. After receiving the news that we were going to lose our 11 year old, fur baby G to cancer only 6 1/2 short months after losing our 18 year old, fur baby Zizi, we were devastated! You helped us and G in an incredible way. The blessing you said over him and the poem you recited touched us deeply. We said a prayer for you too Dr. Simpson because we believe you are doing an amazing job, helping people and their companions.

WOW! What an angel Dr. Kim is! My poor Gracie was given some worthless medication for her arthritis and we were so fearful she was at the end of her life. Dr. Kim just left and Gracie is on the new meds so she can thrive! What a great experience! Love Dr. Kim and she really does care for your fur baby! Thanks so much!

Sentimental Items

Hi Dr Simpson we want to thank you for the sentimental items that you delivered with Boots. They were so heart warming. We put him to rest on Memorial Day on our property in OK with our other dogs that had passed on. Here’s a picture.

Again thank you for being such a comforting strong companion during such a sad time.

Lindsey DeWayne

I would like to take a minute and praise a company and someone that’s very deserving. If the time ever comes when a loving pet is dying and in pain, let me suggest calling Dr. Kim Simpson. She started Paws At Peace to help people like my wife and me. Our wonderful Catahoula Leopard Dog, Tanner, was suffering with lymphoma. This little 3-legged rescue dog was doing well and enjoying life when all of a sudden he couldn’t get up, had a hard time breathing, and was trembling in pain. He was confused by it all and kept looking at us as if to say, “What’s all this? What’s wrong with me?” I made an appointment to take him to our vet to have him euthanized. Before our 5:30 appointment, I googled “at home euthanasia”. I called Dr. Simpson crying like a school girl. She came right away and lovingly put our guy in a deep sleep before administering the final injection.
Her kindness and calmness was essential for us as well as Tanner. I can’t recommend her enough. While I hope you never need services like this, it’s comforting to know it can take place in a home setting instead of dragging your friend to a vet clinic where they can be apprehensive.
Thank you, Dr. Simpson. We’ll never forget you.

Dear Kim,

I wanted to thank you for coming to help us with Gracie last Wednesday. I called you in my time of need…you responded and came when I really needed help. Even though we had never talked and didn’t know each other – I wanted you to know that your responding was a huge comfort at a time of grief and heartbreak.

When I saw that your specialty was for pet hospice and senior care, the term hospice hadn’t entered my mind – but it was exactly what I was trying to provide for Gracie. After trips/visits to the vet and not being able to determine what was wrong, I wanted her to be home with me, and I felt that was what Gracie wanted also. I wish that I had known about you and how you could’ve helped Gracie.
I am so Thankful that I found you and know that I will call you when I need help with George, my dog and Charlie my cat.

Thank you again for the work that you do and for your emotional support!

All the very best!
Love,
-Jennifer

Amy

Hi Kim,
I just wanted to thank you again, so much, for the care and grace in which you handled Fibi (and me) a few weeks ago. I have told everyone about you including my vet (who doesn’t provide those services anymore). I hope you are doing well and I know you are helping families like you helped me. I won’t ever forget what you did for us.
Kindest regards,

-Amy

Dr Kim Simpson,

Thank you for being there for us on Rosie’s last day. We really appreciated your support and the thoughtful way that you approached what was a difficult time for all of us.

Rosie was a gentle soul who thought everyone should be her friend. Walks were an excuse to sniff, snack and say hello rather than for the exercise they may have provided. She was never far away, especially when something was happening in the kitchen and could be relied on to try and clean up any morsels that may have fallen on the floor. At other times she was snoozing in the sun, keeping an eye on what was happening outside the front window or playing with her toys. Rosie we will miss your quiet companionship and exuberant play. May you rest in peace.

Hi Kim,
Thank you for everything. Your kindness, care, and help through this difficult time has been greatly appreciated and we will never forget you.
We’ve had animals put down before but you made this time not only very special, but a little easier as well. Thank you for that and the love that you have shown to both Blue and our family.

God Bless

Thanks,

-LeeAnn Fine

Sadie was the smartest dog I have ever had! She loved to swim. She would run and dive into the water while catching a football, baseball, or anything else you would throw as she splashed into the water. She had such great spirit, but she would also just sit with you just to be near you. She loved us just as much as we loved her. She will be greatly missed. Thank you for taking such good care of her and helping her pass peacefully in my arms at her own home.

Tony Portolano

Hello Dr Simpson

I got your message Saturday and wanted to circle back and let you know we are all doing well on this end. We spent the weekend talking about all of the joy, love and companionship that Sammy brought to the family and that tremendously helped the healing process.

I wanted to personally thank you for being so kind and gentle with Sammy and me; for that matter. It proved to be a painful experience and your great bedside manner was helpful getting me through it knowing that Sammy is no longer suffering and moved onto a better place. From the bottom of my heart, Thanks…

Sincerely

– Tony Portolano
