Her vision for HA! Is for every animal guardian to feel empowered by the information they receive to take leadership over the wellness of the animals in their care.

Jen will help you embrace symptoms and put them into context. You can then focus on the big picture of better long-term health and happier lives.

Gail Pope

Gail Pope is the Founder and President of BrightHaven Animal Sanctuary, Hospice, Rescue and Education Center in California, and for nearly 30 years her focus has been on helping senior and special needs animals on a journey of holistic healing, all the way through hospice care and transition. BrightHaven’s holistic regimen, which includes classical veterinary homeopathy and a raw meat diet, is renowned as their animals seem to live longer and look healthier than most. For example, Frazier the cat survived cancer and lived to age 34 and Ollie the paralyzed Dachshund lived to age 24. Gail is excited to be part of Holistic Actions! so that she can help people to better help their animals. It’s all about living well at every life stage, in an optimal state of balance, through the last breath!

Vision: Holistic Actions! will equip people with knowledge that helps them become more receptive to and understanding of the holistic approach. Their animals will benefit as caregivers learn to embrace the whole being and not just symptoms, with the goal of balancing body, mind and spirit at all life stages!

Gail offers private online wellness and pawspice (hospice for pets) coaching.

I help you as well as your companion animals have happier holistic lives.
Working with Dr. Jeff (my husband) since 1990 has taught me to put everything we do into context.
We all want to have the best lives possible. For all of our family. Now I am using my own teaching skills to help you find freedom and balance for your pets.
How? By showing you that varied fresh food feeding is easy, how to have a clean environment and decrease toxic elements, and natural healing.  Above all, I am grateful to be able to help you and look forward to learning more every day. We can then apply that to keeping us all well in the Holistic Actions! Academy.
