Social Worker Specializes in End-of-Life Care for Pets

Cheers to USA Today for this article on National Association of Social Workers member Juliet Sternberg, MSW.

Sternberg has a unique job, even in the widely varied field of social work. She is co-owner of the Hope Veterinary Clinic in Brooklyn, N.Y., and offers counseling to people who have terminally ill pets.

Sternberg says her service helps improve care of pets because they have calmer and less anguished owners. And she helps owners prepare for the death of their beloved pets.

“It’s an honor to be invited into their final journey together,” she said.
