End-of-Life Care accreditation

You understand the unique bond pets share with their families. Making decisions at life’s end can be emotionally charged, demanding the highest standards of empathy and care.  Therefore, AAHA’s End-of-Life Care accreditation recognizes practices excelling in compassionate, respectful, and efficient end-of-life services for both the patient and their human companions.

Why choose AAHA End-of-Life Care accreditation?

  • Meaningful final stages: End-of-life care is as crucial as any other facet of a pet’s life journey. This accreditation recognizes its significance and equips you to provide exceptional support.
  • Enhanced human-animal bond: By prioritizing emotional well-being, you strengthen the bond between pets and their families, even during difficult times.
  • Stronger team, empowered practice: Preparing for the accreditation fosters teamwork and boosts morale, creating a positive and supportive environment for both staff and clients.

Who can apply?

  • AAHA-accredited practices with a dedicated end-of-life care department (mobile or brick-and-mortar).
  • Standalone end-of-life care practices. Whether mobile or brick-and-mortar, your practice can be recognized for its expertise.
