Where and when will the euthanasia take place?

    You can choose the place in your home, in the backyard, on the gras, on the deck in your pet's bed, a favorite place, a comfortable place -- this can be your decision. Usually, within the first 30 minutes of our visit the euthanasia process has taken place and the remainder of the visit is set aside to accommodate some peaceful quiet time alone with them. For some, this is 5 minutes and for others this is 20 minutes or more. 

If prior arrangements are made, the body can be left in your home for several hours and River Valley Gateway will return at the requested time for body aftercare.
