We are a group of dog owners (and lovers!) dedicated to building a community where we can share our support and hope; where each of us feel accepted and heard.

We are not veterinarians or canine/animal nutritionists. We are pet owners who have had a dog diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma. We are all here to learn from each other and share what we have learned through this journey. We love what we do, and we do it with passion. We look forward to working with you.
