Meet The Team

Derek Calhoon

Ace Ratcliff

Co-Founder & Deathcare Advisor

Harper Laika Leeloo

The Reason We Do This

We know how hard this is.
We’ve been through it ourselves.
We promised our dog Harper a good life, which includes a dignified death.
When her heart failed, we made sure that she died at home, in our arms, surrounded by familiar smells and sounds.
She deserved the best.
Your family does, too.



"Knowing that Dr. Derek and Ace had lost their precious Harper helped us trust them, since they have experienced such a loss as well. We admire their creativity, taking that pain and creating a promise, Harper’s Promise. They made Jetson’s departure beautiful, honoring him in such a loving way."
