Gem of Wisdom for Daily Reflection: 

New Book On Animal Welfare

Tara’s Babies Animal Welfare, a Buddhist no-kill dog and bird rescue and sanctuary, is compiling a book to support animal lovers wanting to explore the option of hospice and palliative care for terminally ill or injured companion animals, instead of the usual practice of euthanasia. The book will provide practical information about the death process, palliative care options and support etc. It will also include stories from people who have made this choice.

If you have a story to share about how you provide hospice and palliative care for an animal, Tara’s Babies Animal Welfare would love to hear from you. The story should chronicle the type of impact this choice had on your animal, your family, your friends, and your life.
