Bereavement Dogs

Blessed with therapy dogs

Families can request a certified bereavement dog through us at Leppert. We have partnered with the Healing Paws Chapter of Love on a Leash. Upon request, bereavement dogs can be available for funeral and memorial services in addition to grief therapy while arranging for the services. During difficult times, we all can appreciate unconditional love and affection. These extraordinary dogs provide a calming atmosphere and often bring a smile to the faces of many family members.



The Healing Paws Chapter of Love on a Leash is non-profit organization consisting of certified therapy dogs and their owners. They volunteer at nursing homes, hospice, hospitals, other local charitable facilities, and now Leppert Mortuary & Crematory Services. “The original intention of our visits was to ‘bless’ others, but you see we also get blessed. We call it a HEART ISSUE.”

Bereavement dogs will be available upon request of the family. There is no additional charge for their services at Leppert Mortuary & Crematory Services. If you are interested in the services of a bereavement dog please inform a member of our excellent staff.
