Leadership in the Field of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care.


A pet parent navigating the end-of-life journey for a beloved pet wants to know they’ve “done everything” for their animal’s final walk. Veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and other dedicated pet care support professionals want to know they have all the skills needed for pet hospice, palliative care, and euthanasia for a beloved pet.

The International Association for Animal Hospice and Palliative Care addresses all these needs, and more. We are the services that matter when honoring a life and love shared for a pet and those who cared for them.
