Shiva's Hope House
Shiva's Hope House was established in honor of Ute's dog Shiva to support animals who are very ill and at the end of their life. Ute has taken in many elderly or terminally ill animals over the years to help them live out their life with dignity and in peace.
There is nothing more profound than birth and death.
At Shiva's Hope House it is our intention to shift not just the personal but also the collective paradigm around the process of death and dying of animals.
We are educating pet owners and pet professionals to "team up" with the animals in their care and to pay close attention to choices that can be made collaboratively between the pet and the care taker.
This means that we expand our perception and pay consciously attention to the signals of our animal companion.
Sarah's last moments
Our history: Shiva's Hope House hosted monthly meetings for pet guardians for five years after the passing of two of Ute's beloved dogs : Jonah and Salila. They died within days of each other.
Many pet guardians have changed the perception of the end of life of their pets because of their connection with Shiva's Hope House.
They discover a whole new spiritual dimension and beauty during this sacred time.
Ute currently offers in depth local and long distance end of life and bereavement programs for pets and their people.
In the Fall of 2017 we will launch our first pet death doula training in Olympia WA. For more information please contact Ute.
