Paw-lliative care

Marie-Lune Fortin talks to animals.


According to the Low resident, as a child, she could acutely understand her dog’s plea for cold water. Years later, she chats about the concept of death with cats and engages in philosophical musings with horses.


“It’s something that’s always been there for me — since I was a child. It was this deep love for animals. I felt I could recognize myself in animals a lot,” said Fortin.


Now a business owner, Fortin offers her services to help locate lost pets. She also facilitates conversation between dying animals and their guardians — a process she calls palliative care.
