Join Our Hospital Partnership Program
Since 2010, we have provided compassionate in home end-of-life care for families and their companion animals along the Colorado Front Range. We have been so grateful for your referrals over the years and we have launched this partnership program to give back to our referring hospitals and broaden our support for families.
Our Hospital Partnership Program allows us to offer discounts and continuing education to partner hospitals, aid in client retention, and reduce burnout and compassion fatigue among staff. It also creates a more seamless referral process for your patients in their end-of-life journey.

A Testimonial From a Veterinary Professional
“Saying goodbye to a beloved pet is so difficult and sad. As a veterinarian, I have assisted many clients with this transition for their wonderful pets. But when it came time for my sweet girl, Poppy, I needed help so that I could just be present as her mom through the process.
Caring Pathways was great to work with, from the first phone call through their communications in the days after our loss. Dr. Gina Singleton was amazing in her compassion for my family (both pets and people), her professionalism and her consummate skills in giving Poppy a painless and peaceful passing.
I will confidently recommend Caring Pathways and Dr. Singleton to friends, family and clients and I’m so grateful that this service is available in our community. I extend my deepest gratitude to everyone at Caring Pathways.”
– Dr. Lisa McCarthy, Owner, Midtown Veterinary Medical Center in Fort Collins
