BrightHaven’s goal is to help you help your animals live well each and every day!
Founded in 1990 by Gail and Richard Pope, BrightHaven is a renowned animal rescue, hospice education and holistic education nonprofit organization.
Our primary focus: senior, disabled and chronically ill animals, a vulnerable population that has an overwhelming need to find love and care in our society.
BrightHaven is a pioneer and leader in the ever-expanding field of animal hospice and palliative care, and our experience with hospice-supported natural dying is distinct and well known. We are privileged to have provided hospice care for and shared the dying experience with over 600 animals who taught us so much. At BrightHaven, it is all about living well through the last breath!
Announcing Valuable Updates to the BrightHaven Website!
We’ve now added new caregiver resources to our educational program so that we can even better help people help animals.
Here are two links we invite you to explore:
Caregiver Resources & Education (https://www.brighthaven.org/caregiver-resources-education/) – We proudly share what we’ve learned about health and wellbeing, hospice and natural dying by following the wisdom of the animals we’ve loved and cared for since 1990! We’ve organized links to caregiver resources and education on one page, organized by free and for-purchase resources.
Animal Caregiver FAQ (https://www.brighthaven.org/animal-caregiver-faq/) – We’ve addressed some of the most common questions that Gail hears from her consulting clients.
You can also help us help more animals and people by sharing these resources with your friends, family, vet, etc.!
In addition, you can follow and share our page on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/brighthavenorg.
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Jennifer Minnich of M2 Design (https://www.m2design.net/) for volunteering to create beautiful new website slider images branded for BrightHaven, like the one shown above, and for her useful suggestions that included adding an FAQ page for animal caregivers.
And BrightHaven sincerely thanks YOU for your support of our work!
