Peaceful Partings is owned by Missy Jenkins, CVT

Missy started her career in Veterinary Medicine in Atlanta, GA in 1992. She earned her certification in Veterinary technology in 1999. After completing her business degree in 2002, she met her husband Jason Jenkins, who is an active duty aviator with the US Army. In 2004 they moved to Colorado and decided to call this their forever home.

Experienced in Animal Care and Euthanasia Services

Missy gained valuable experience in pet euthanasia as a technician to Dr. Jodi Freifeld, who started Peaceful Partings in 2007. Dr. Freifeld relocated to Kansas in June 2009. At that time, Missy purchased the business, after seeing how many families they had been able to help. Peaceful Partings allowed families to be in their own home when their pet was ready to cross the rainbow bridge.

Helping you through a Very difficult Process

Throughout her career, Missy has helped many pet owners, like you, through their difficult loss. She and all of her staff understand the benefits of helping people & pets in their own homes.
