We are proud to offer Aquamation for aftercare in South Florida.  Click here for more information about Aquamation.  

AVAILABILITY

COVID-19 Update: We are still honored to join you in the home so that your pet can be safely surrounded by loved ones during this time.

We are here to answer your questions every day, from 7am - 11pm. Appointments are scheduled throughout the week, please call for availability. Sometimes pets take a turn for the worse overnight or in a short amount of time, so we do our best to accommodate same day appointments with a few hours notice, but cannot guarantee that. If this is a medical emergency, please contact your local veterinarian or one of the emergency clinics listed in the Local Resources section.

Let us introduce you to the amazing hospice veterinarian in your area!

Dr. Jordan

Jordan Taheri

My first pet as a little boy was a long-haired guinea pig named Bogie.  We had hamsters in the past, but this was our first pet that was all mine, and I loved him.  So when Bogie got sick and soon passed, I was devastated.  I did not agree with my friends’ suggestions to “just get another,” because there was no other Bogie, and he was gone.  It was really at this point that I realized I was meant to be a veterinarian. 

Years later in 2010, I proudly graduated from University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine.  Having worked all over the country, I now find myself back where I grew up, in Broward County.  The place that has always been home to me.  I’ll never forget the memories that Bogie and I shared, and what he meant to me.  In joining Lap of Love, I am truly humbled and honored to have the opportunity to help people and their loved ones in their greatest time of need.  We can never replace our beloved furry friends, but we can give them the loving gifts of comfortable end of life care and a peaceful passing.

Dr. Kimberly

Kimberly Moen

I grew up in California and Arizona. Along the way, I connected with many creatures, large and small, and they have been a core part of my life. Since I was old enough to walk, I played by butting heads with my goat Willie, rode horses with joy, and sneaked around the forest to catch a glimpse of wild deer. I even found a "secret" place for a new kitten amongst my stuffed animals so I could keep her inside the house. As a child, most of my conversations revolved around how my friends’ pets were doing. 

I formed a strong bond with my childhood dog, Katie Mae. She was a Labrador/Husky mix who sang beautifully with the coyotes at night and befriended my guinea pig, Skittles, who shared veggies with her.  We took care of each other for ten amazing years. When, Katie suffered from a systemic infection beyond treatment, it crushed me. I have endured the loss of many beloved companions over the course of my life, and deeply understand the strong the connection between an animal and a human. 

It was inevitable that I would take the Veterinarian's oath to help animals, to prevent and relieve their suffering. So, I proudly graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine after doing my clinical rotations at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. I then went on to gain experience through general practice. Now, it is my desire to support and connect with people and their beloved animals alike. Through providing in-home hospice and peaceful transitions, I achieve this goal. For me, it is a beautiful thing to offer comfort and guidance to people during their most challenging and selfless gift to their furry family members.

"Kimberly was very courteous, professional, and kind. This was an incredibly difficult day for me, and I don't know how she manages this every day. Thank you for helping make Lucky's transition as painless as possible."

"Dr. Taheri,

AKA Jordan, as you introduced yourself, (undoubtedly to make us feel more comfortable, as though an old friend coming to assist us in this) was a blessing. From the moment that you walked into our home, we felt such peace. Your calm, thoughtful, and insightful demeanor; made this very saddening process, so much easier to endure. Our family is forever grateful in your gentle and patient approach, to our beloved Sadie. We are forever grateful, to your professional, yet warm hand. As is her furry brother, Pirate, that was able to lay with us during her goodbye. Words can't express our gratitude.

Warmest Regards,

Mike, Lacey & Pirate"

"We were blessed to have Dr. Kimberly come and help Missy go to heaven with dignity. Missy loved Dr. Kimberly the minute she came into the room. I think she knew Dr. Kimberly was there to help her. Missy wasn’t interested in any special treats as her appetite was gone but she loved all the affection she was receiving. Dr. Kimberly also assured me that I was making the best decision for Missy and I needed that validation as it such a difficult decision. Missy went into a peaceful sleep and felt no discomfort whatsoever. Lap of Love has such an amazing group of loving vets and staff. A few months back Dr. Blaine came to the house for my other dog Maybelline and it was such a beautiful experience then as well. Dr. Kimberly and Dr. Blaine are both guardian angels on earth. I have not met the third vet in my area but I would have no doubt that she is as equally special as both Dr. Kimberly and Dr. Blaine. I don’t have enough good things to say about Lap of 💕 Love and would encourage anyone to contact them when the time comes. I have tremendous peace because of them."

“We had to say goodbye to our incredible dog Shadow. He was the best! We adopted him at 12 years old 5 years ago. He had been abandoned at a vet's office for almost a year along with the other smaller dogs from the household.

We got a call from a friend in animal rescue that Shadow would be handed over to Animal Control in a few days. We knew a ...

“Our sweet but stubborn Charlotte passed away yesterday (July 16th) peacefully at home. She was rescued from an East Tennessee animal shelter and quickly became the favorite family member. We grew up with Charlotte and she stayed alive to see my brothers and I start and graduate from high school, college, law school, and medical school. She was ...

“Chiquita,

I found you in a garbage dump in Gainesville but in actuality you found me. Someone somewhere knew how much I needed you and brought you into my life. You were with me for 15 years. Wherever I went you happily followed. You loved me even through the times that I was least lovable. You made me smile when I was upset. Everyone who ...
