Honoring The Bond With Your Pet Through Dignified End of Life Care.
Let Our Family Take Care Of Yours.
We are a local and family-owned company that provides compassionate and loving end of life care for your pet by honoring the unique bond between you and your loved one. We provide home euthanasia services, as well as an eco-friendly alternative to traditional flame cremation, called Aquamation. We were the first company in Arizona to provide this gentle and natural aftercare service.
Dr. Kellie Barrett created Kindred Spirits around a philosophy that pets deserve respectful and gentle care in their final journey of life. She is from Nebraska and completed her veterinary degree at Iowa State University. Dr. Barrett has worked in various clinical settings including animal shelters, private practice, and a nonprofit organization providing veterinary services in under served areas. She has lived in Tucson for more than 12 years and enjoys time with her husband, 2 children, their rescue dog Roo and blind cat Eighty-Eight.
Dr. Barrett specializes in end of life care and is CAETA (Companion Animal Euthanasia Training Academy) certified in gentle and advanced euthanasia techniques. She also has multiple certifications in Low Stress Handling, the Human Animal Bond, and Pet Loss & Grief support. Dr. Barrett is also a certified hospice and palliative care veterinarian through the IAAHPC. She trained under Dr. Alan Wolfelt with the Center for Loss and Life Transitions to earn the Death and Grief Studies Certificate. This certification is awarded after the completion of 150 hours (5 courses) in bereavement care and companioning mourners. Dr. Barrett continues to learn from Dr. Wolfelt through additional training courses.
