Siomara Acevedo, DVM
Dr. Siomara Acevedo was born and raised in Puerto Rico before landing in Atlanta, Georgia. She was a toddler/in diapers when she started learning about animals at her grandparents’ small farm. She really enjoyed bottle feeding baby goats from the moment she learned how to walk. Her grandparents truly instilled kindness towards animals by taking injured stray dogs to the vet then nursing them back to health at their home.Read More
We had such a healthy and healing experience with Dr. Sio helping us say goodbye to our Bella. We have three daughters who were comforted by Dr. Sio’s words and explanations as she talked through the process and allowed us all to ask as many questions as necessary until we were comfortable. She allowed us privacy in our intimate moments as we grieved Bella’s passing. She was kind, professional, considerate, informative and patient at every step. We are grateful for the compassionate care we and Bella received in such a difficult time.

Audrey Washburn, DVM
Dr. Audrey Washburn grew up in rural North Carolina and Virginia, before finally landing in Colorado Springs. During her years in practice, she realized there was a serious unmet need for in home euthanasia in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She had met so many pet owners who had struggled with a life-ending disease in their pets and determining whether or not pet euthanasia was the best option. Dr. Washburn knew the clinic was not the best place for owners and pets to say goodbye.Read More
Dr. Washburn showed our family the highest degree of compassion and professionalism when visiting our home. She took the time to get to know our dog, addressed our concerns with care, and gently explained each step of the process and what to expect. Our precious hound deserved a calm, respectful means of passing, and I feel so grateful Dr. Washburn was able to facilitate this. She not only took such good care of our dog, but us, too. Thank you for walking along side us during one of our most difficult days.

Annette Bradley, DVM
Dr. Annette Bradley grew up in a small-town in Nebraska and received her undergraduate degree from Chadron State College in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics. She then graduated from the University of Florida Veterinary School in 1993 but she is still a ‘Cornhusker’ at heart. Dr. Bradley has a true passion for end of life care and is happy to help clients that have to make those touch decisions. We are honored to have her as a part of our unique mobile euthanasia practice and to allow her to provide our at home euthanasia service in Colorado Springs.Read More
Dr Annette was amazing. She helped make the process of losing our cat so peaceful. We never felt rushed and she truly helped me feel at peace with our decision. She even gave us a coloring book for our 5 year old son that he could write about our cat and include pictures. Highly recommend this company.

Emma Thomas, DVM
Dr. Emma Thomas is a veterinarian in Cleveland, OH and shares her home with 2 dogs, Monkey and Pippin, and 5 cats, Marla, Kitten, Judy, Puff, and Deedee. Her love for animals stemmed from infancy, always surrounded by either dogs, cats, horses, birds, or rodents. While in high school, Dr. Thomas had the opportunity to spend the summer at a family friend’s barn in Hawai’i, where she spent her time training horses, helping with barn chores, but most impactfully, shadowing a local equine veterinarian.Read More
So very grateful for Dr. Emma and Home with Dignity. Our German Shepherd Charlie was able to find rest in his home with family members around saying their farewells. I am overwhelmed with gratitude that we were able to provide Charlie such a beautiful send off with such comfort.
Ben Shrauner, DVM, DACVS
Dr. Ben Shrauner grew up in Protection, a small town in the southwestern part of Kansas, where his family finished cattle, ranched, and farmed. He enjoyed working with the animals, but wanted flexibility in where he could live and decided Veterinary Medicine would provide just that.Read More
Dr. Ben was wonderful. He's filled with empathy and compassion. He explained the entire process in a calm, confident manor. He is an Angel to do what he does and help our much beloved pets (family members) to cross over quietly and peacefully. Forever indebted to him.

Ashley Ng, DVM
Dr. Ashley Ng grew up in a small city in Vermont before settling in Minneapolis. She loved all animals from a young age, and wanted to become a veterinarian since she was 7 years old. After working with so many clients and patients, it really started to appeal to her to focus on just one aspect of veterinary medicine and that is veterinary euthanasia. Even during veterinary school, Dr. Ng always knew that she had a passion for guiding clients through those difficult end of life decisions and the euthanasia process.Read More
Dr. Ashley Ng was amazing. This was one of the most difficult things I’ve gone through in my adult life, seeing Kiki “my cat” struggle who’s been apart of my life for 14 years was terrible, but Home with Dignity guided me in the right direction and quickly worked with my schedule and offered plenty of options. Though this was an extremely difficult thing to move forward with, I’m grateful that my baby is no longer in pain and suffering.

Jessica Brozda, VMD
Dr. Jessica Brozda wanted to become a veterinarian from a young age, growing up and spending time caring for animals on her family’s farm in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Her favorite aspect of clinical practice was client education and preventative medicine, but over the years, Dr. Brozda has found mobile practice for in home euthanasia to be the most rewarding.Read More
Dr. Brozda is amazing and made our family feel very comfortable during a very hard time. I didn’t know what to expect but I did know that I didn’t want my dog to be stressed out in a vet office. Dr Brozda came in explained the process and as I held my dog she comfortably went to sleep while Dr Brozda talked through the process. I wouldn’t change one thing. I know my dog was happy in my arms in her last moments and I didn’t feel rushed. Dr Brozda is an angel on earth. I would highly recommend home with dignity.

Helping You Decide
Caregivers can use these quality of life assessment sheets to assess animals and guide decision-making for Home Hospice care or even track the timing of a pets decline as this helps us understand the right time for euthanasia. Use numbers from 0 to 10 (10 is ideal or normal) to score the patient’s condition. Not everyone needs this, but for those who would like to have a tool to understand their pet’s status, or to track ups and downs, this is a great tool for you

She was patient and empathetic on such a hard day for my family. She allowed us time to grieve. I’m so thankful this service is available.”
Josie (Minneapolis, MN)
