Pet Loss and Bereavement Counseling
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Over many years of working with animals, we have come across so many with needs that others could not fulfill. After having the opportunity to work with these animals, build their confidence & show them the beauty they have inside, the transformation occurred. Knowing the positive difference we make in the lives of many continues to motivate us! We speak for those who may not be heard. When one hears "special needs," it is not defined by one aspect. Special-needs touch all facets of life, behavioral, emotional, physical & medical. Many of our rescues have significant behavior issues that we help rehabilitate to help them gain their confidence and security with people again. We have rescues with physical handicaps who have a can-do cattitude & others who have medical conditions that impact their daily life. The others are at the end of life stage & require a loving, gentle, & caring environment where they can thrive until it is time for them to leave us.
We offer pet loss counseling as a certified counselor through our Pawspice program. As an animal advocacy organization & rescue group for animals with special needs, we want to be able to offer support for people who go through this difficult process, before, during, & afterward. We are offering this support in whatever capacity needed. We help to guide through these steps by offering compassionate, empathetic, & individualized support.
Our founder is an Associate Certified Cat Behavior Consultant. Our goal with this certification is to continue to be a local resource for various cat behaviors. We work with a variety of behaviors over the past 20 years, specializing in shy, unsocialized, & fearful cats. MH also offers support for transitions into the home (before and after adoption from the local shelter or rescue group), support for adopters before & after adoption, lost cats & more. Our partner organization, Alaska’s KAAATs has user-friendly brochures on our website for our local community along with educational videos and bi-weekly online discussion about all things cat!
In our rescue, we strive to meet individual needs. We have implemented an End of Life program, called Pawspice & our PURRever foster program. This is for the animals who may be long term fosters due to medical or behavioral needs.
Each animal that we work with receives the best care possible (including but not limited to spay/neuter, dental) & TLC possible. This happens due to the incredible generosity of our community.
