Compassionate end-of-life veterinary care provided in the comfort of your home



Golden Gate Veterinary Home Hospice & Euthanasia is a network of local veterinarians and technicians directed by Dr.Brian VanHorn and Jennifer Sawyer, RVT. Our practice is dedicated to providing compassionate end-of-life veterinary care for companion animals in the comfort of their home. 

We are located in San Francisco & our experienced team offers the highest quality veterinary services to pets in and around the city. While most of our patients are dogs and cats, we are available to assist with a variety of species including rabbits, exotics, fish, birds, pigs and pocket-pets. 

Our mission is to prevent the pain and suffering that can be associated with end-of-life and provide the most stress free experience possible for your pet. We can also assist with after-care, cremation or burial, if needed. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We are here to help you and your pet.
