BENEFITING: SUGARS GIFT INC
Our mission is to provide hospice, euthanasia and end-of-life veterinary services for terminally ill pets in their own homes. This allows them a comfortable, peaceful setting, where they have lived and been loved, to cross over the Rainbow Bridge with dignity. Our services overcome conditions that could be due to the pet’s inability to be moved or treated at a facility, or due to the owner’s inability to leave the home.

Our 10-year old Yorkie, Sugar, passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2013. We needed our veterinarian to come to our home to help Sugar pass because she was in such pain. However, he refused to come to our home unless we brought her to his office first to put in an IV. We absolutely could not do that because of her pain level. We finally found a for-profit company to come to our home that night and help her pass. The following day, we decided that we must form a non-profit to provide these services to anyone whose pet is in such pain, or anyone who is home-bound themselves and cannot transport their pets to the veterinarian's office. The for-profit companies that perform in-home euthanasia services are very expensive and many people cannot afford them. Cost should never be a barrier to making sure your babies can pass over the Rainbow Bridge from home.
We made sure Sugar crossed over the Rainbow Bridge from home with comfort, dignity and peace. Sugar’s Gift to every Little Angel is to allow them the same privilege: Sugar is helping them cross over the Rainbow Bridge from home, with the help from others who have donated funds to make that happen. Every Little Angel should be able to spend their last moments in the place they are most comfortable – at home. Sugar is also giving Nikki (founder) a gift: Nikki wanted to be a veterinarian from the time she could walk. She was talked out of this (her true calling) after her freshman year in Pre-Vet in college by someone close to her. It is the biggest regret of her life. Sugar's gift to Nikki is to allow her to work with and help animals, which is everything Nikki always wanted.
Sugar's Gift, Inc. is the ONLY non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization in the country whose mission is to help terminally pets cross over the Rainbow Bridge from home with comfort, dignity and peace.
