Welcome to Cherry Tree Gentle Farewells, a family run home visiting euthanasia service for dogs and cats in Kent.

We understand just how important our beloved pets and companions are to us.  They are not just a pet, but a loved member of the family.  We have all lost very loved pets, and understand the pain and grief that comes with this loss.

We also know just how hard it is to make the difficult decision to say goodbye to a loved pet.

We are able to offer a quality of life consultation to help with decision making and/or a consultation prior to discuss your wishes for your pet. When the time comes to say goodbye, we provide a compassionate, dignified and peaceful euthanasia in the comfort of your own home. This reduces the stress to you and your pet. Should you wish for the cremation of your beloved companion, we will use our fully licensed pet crematorium at Cherry Tree.

Nicola came out to put our darling dog, Sam to sleep. She was so sensitive, kind and compassionate, yet professional and we were so grateful that we could have Sam put to sleep in familiar surroundings for him. The lovely follow up card and seeds to sow in remembrance of him was such a lovely touch and so appreciated by us. I thank God for the vet putting us on to you. I would recommend Cherry Tree to anyone.

Saying good bye

We knew the time would come when we would have to say goodbye to our little boy, Bean. After a cancer diagnosis, we spent the last few precious months feeding him steak and roast chicken and taking him walking in all his favourite places. We were so grateful for the recommendation our vet made to Cherry Tree and the wonderful service they provide. We never wanted Bean to know that anything was out of the ordinary. Luckily for us, he was as well as he could be until the day we had to make the heart breaking decision to say goodbye. Nicola’s service allowed us to say goodbye in the way we wanted – at home with our beautiful boy, smothered in kisses and surrounded by all his familiar things. Nicola was able to come to the house within a few hours of our call. She explained each step sensitively and took the time to ensure we were happy with everything that would happen. No death is easy, but the service Nicola provided made us feel we had done the best we could for Bean and that we gave him as peaceful a send off as possible. Thank you Nicola, from Elisa, Terry and Bean x x x
