We Love Pets!
We are parents of pets as well and can easily empathize with the emotional difficulty you will experience when seeing your pet in their final stages of life. We believe in working closely together with you to allow your loved pet to have maximum comfort in their final days, weeks, or months.
The Pets at Rest AZ dedicated veterinarian Kelly Collins will make every effort to prepare you and your loved ones for the passing of a beloved pet. It is not always easy to understand when and if it is time to say that last goodbye. Dr. Kelly will discuss any concerns you have and help you evaluate what is best for your pet and family. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions!
“Dr. Kelly Collins made the passing of our wonderful dog, Duke, so peaceful. She was prompt in contacting us to discuss our options, professional and so kind. She was flexible when we needed her to come sooner and was completely focused on Duke, despite us talking and our other dog being right there. I can not tell you what it means when your pet passes so peacefully. Dr. Collins treated Duke with such love and kindness, was so polite and patient with us and other dog and I will always be so grateful!”
“It has been very difficult to say goodbye to our dog Charlie. We are very grateful for your care, understanding and professionalism! We highly recommend Kelly to anyone in need of this service.”
“Thank you for making this emotional time easier, with love and professional skill. We feel that we have done everything right and given our Marty a peaceful parting which made it better for our entire family.”
“Thank you so much for helping us yesterday. It really made a difference.”
“We recently had to let our cat, Loki, go after 12 good years with me and my wife. I could not have asked for anyone better to help us say goodbye. The vet was compassionate and kind. She gave us as much time as we needed to say goodbye, and even let us share some stories without feeling rushed. When ever we had a question, they responded quickly and thoroughly. My wife and I also treasure the paw print we were able to get. You can definitely tell they do the service out of care and passion. If it is time to say goodby, as hard as it is, I could not recommend anyone else more than I can recommend these guys.”
“I want to thank you for encouraging me to keep Guinness at home and you working around him. When Lexi would be hospitalized, I would come home without her and they would look all over the house for her. Having the others be there, like you said, helped them process what was going on. It is such a difficult thing to go through but your peaceful, caring and kind nature made it a little easier. I hope when the time comes again I can do it at home rather than a clinic setting. It makes a huge difference in coping with the grief.”

“Thank you Dr. Collins again for your gracious kindness shown to us and more importantly our Carrington. I cannot put into words how much your kindness meant as well as your prompt response to our request to come to our home. It meant the world to us you cared enough to do so. I thank God for such wonderful people like you in this world.”
“Dr. Collins, a mere thank you does not express our appreciation of your tenderness and compassion with Linus and our family. We were all blessed to have found you.”

“Dear Dr Collins, Thank you very much for coming to our home and helping Pandora through her last journey. Your calm, quiet presence helped us handle a truly heart-breaking experience. Putting her in your red blanket and front seat of your car was so very special. Thank you.”
