Claudia and Dwayne Seaver have provided foster and hospice care to Kindred Souls Foundation animals for 12 years. In the last year alone, they have cared for seven terminally ill cats and dogs. Caring for terminally ill pets absorbs physical and emotional energy beyond traditional fostering. We all know what is like to lose a beloved animal companion and the toll it takes. Claudia and Dwayne have decidedly embraced this pain in order to give animals in need a safe, comfortable, and loving home in which to live out their lives.
The Seavers both work full time jobs in addition to being ‘on-call’ 24/7 for their KSF charges. Claudia even took a job five minutes from home so that she could check on the animals, give medications, and transport to the vet if needed.
The couple works closely with doctors and specialists to ensure they understand each medical condition. Their keen observations allow the doctors to intervene in a timely manner when necessary. Quality of life is always a priority. Claudia and Dwayne do not shy away from any challenge. They have learned how to give subQ fluids, injections, and medications. They’ve made special diets, monitored seizures, provided physical therapy, and accommodated blind and/or deaf animals.
As if that was not enough giving, they also volunteer for the Foundation in other ways. Every year they contribute their time networking, educating, transporting, donating, and participating in KSF events.
We would love to see this deserving couple be recognized for the unlimited time they devote to the Foundation, extraordinary care they provide to the Foundation animals, and the tremendous amount of compassion they demonstrate on a daily basis.
