FUNERAL COMFORT DOG

AT KINGS, WE UNDERSTAND THE COMFORT A TRAINED COMPANION PET CAN PROVIDE TO PEOPLE EXPERIENCING GRIEF AND LOSS.


That is why we have introduced a special dog, Womble, to our Funeral Home.

Womble’s natural and intuitively caring personality can offer comfort to bereaving families and guests at our arrangement meetings and funeral services.

It is widely understood that the presence of a dog can alleviate emotional suffering and provide comfort and connection for people through difficult times.

If you see Womble around our office and chapel, he will be pleased to meet you!

WOMBLE Q&A

At Kings Funerals, we understand the comfort a trained companion pet can provide to people experiencing grief and loss. We had heard of comfort dogs being used in aged care facilities and hospitals and had also seen that these kinds of dogs were being used in Funeral homes in the USA. Research showed us that comfort dogs can help provide comfort and support to families trying to manage grief in addition to improving their overall mental and physical health. The simple act of petting a comfort dog increases serotonin and dopamine levels in our brain which helps improve our mood by lowering stress, anxiety, and depression.
