End-of-Life Services

UPAWS understands the need for help with end-of-life care. While this can be an emotional time for pet owners, it can also be a financial burden. UPAWS is here to assist Marquette County owners with funds for euthanasia. To qualify for this program, you must:

  • Be a Marquette County resident 
  • Have a need for assistance due to low-income
  • Your vet must approve the euthanasia
  • Pay $30 to UPAWS for payment of the voucher

If you qualify for our program and need our assistance, please call us at 906-475-6661 or email us at info@upaws.org. 
In addition to helping with the aftercare of your animal, UPAWS offers cremation services. Prices vary due to the weight of the animals. Please contact UPAWS for any questions. You may also memorialize your pet in UPAWS Memorial Garden
