Please note that our in home service prices will be higher than most veterinary clinics, to compensate for travel time and distance and due to our commitment to ensuring that you have enough time throughout and after the process to say goodbye to your companion. We do our best to keep our prices as low as we can while providing exceptional, individualized care to every pet and family.
In Home Euthanasia
Starts at $250 for pets up to 100 pounds
*ADDITIONAL FEES MAY APPLY BASED ON LOCATION, SIZE OF PET (see below), AND TIME OF DAY (see below)
When we arrive, we will spend some time getting to know your pet, give them time to relax in our presence, and finalize wishes for aftercare, memorial items, etc. Alissa will explain what will happen and what to expect to all who choose to be present. There will be no rush at any step - we will allow you as much time as needed at each point as long as your pet is comfortable. When everyone is prepared, an injection will be given gently to help your pet relax and gradually go into a deep, painless sleep with you by his or her side (Alissa uses a full anesthesia protocol with every pet to ensure they have no awareness and no fear as they transition). At the appropriate time, a final injection will be given to help your pet pass on peacefully. You can choose to be present for as little or as much of the process as you wish. We will also provide you with resources to help you cope with grief, and if needed, resources to help children or companion animals through this difficult time. A PawPals photo keepsake paw print and fur clipping(s) are included at no additional charge.
We are happy to handle aftercare for your pet (via cremation) if you do not plan on burial (please look here to learn more about cremation options and pricing). Over time, Alissa has realized that it can be very difficult emotionally for some families to help move and transport their pet to our vehicle after a euthanasia. Blake and Alissa work as a team at appointments, so you do not have to worry about assisting with this. If your pet is shy around men or you just prefer it, please let us know and Blake will stay outside until it is time to transport your pet. If you are planning to bury your pet, we can help transport them to the burial site if needed.
LOCATION fees are calculated individually, as prices may change due to fuel costs. This fee is calculated to factor in fuel, vehicle wear and tear, and time.
100-149 pounds = (+$35) = $285
150+ pounds = (+$75) = $325
***We are also available many evenings and most holidays for emergency euthanasias.***

Comfort Room Euthanasia - PLEASE NOTE NO RESTROOM AT THIS TIME
Starts at $100 for pets up to 100 pounds
*ADDITIONAL FEES MAY APPLY BASED ON SIZE OF PET (see above) AND TIME OF DAY (see above)
Our comfort room is an alternative, low cost option that is a step between in home vs vet clinic euthanasia. It is set up similar to a family room and does not have the normal medicinal smells of a clinic, so your pet will be more at ease. We provide a peaceful setting for both you and your pet using cat or dog specific pheromone diffusers, running water, and essential oils. Fur clipping(s) are included at no additional charge.
Behavioral Euthanasias (Additional $200)
*****Please note we do NOT perform convenience euthanasias for unwanted pets.*****
Any request for an in home euthanasia for aggression MUST have a primary veterinarian referral and/or a referral from a veterinary behaviorist or certified dog trainer with experience with aggression cases. It must have been at least 10 days from the last bite incident. An exam will need to be performed at our office in Honea Path in order for us to prescribe and dispense pre-medications and appointments will need to be scheduled at least one week in advance. Records review/ paperwork, exam, and pre-medication services, as well as the additional risk to personal safety, mean that a $200 fee will need to be paid at the time of the exam. That fee is in addition to any other euthanasia and aftercare fees. We reserve the right to refuse services to any pet if the risk to personal safety is unacceptable.
