In June 2010, Sarit and I found ourselves in the very place every pet owner dreads. Our five year old Lab, Lily, was diagnosed with terminal lymphoma. Sadly, she only survived a year.

Through this loss, we realized the need for pet hospice and end-of-life care, and emotional support for the family, were of great importance. After years of planning, our dream has come to fruition.

Into the Sunset is the first brick-and-mortar center specializing in end-of-life care for pets. We do not offer general practice medicine. With Sarit's medical guidance, and my extensive experience in pet grief companioning and memorialization, we are proud to offer this unique concept to pet parents. Our goal is to teach San Diego pet owners how to live while in the process of saying goodbye to their cherished companion.
