Charlotte Mobile Vet for End of Life Care Jennifer Hawthorne


Lap of Love has been in Florida since 2009 but only this summer grew to North Carolina where we now have 3 veterinarians offering pet hospice and in home euthanasia services.  Dr. Jennifer Hawthorne was our first veterinarian in North Carolina - Charlotte area and is our next vet to 'spotlight'! 

Dr. Jennifer was born and raised in Roper, NC. A teeny town in eastern North Carolina. She now lives in Charlotte with her husband and 19 month old son. 

I had to look it up cause I never heard of Roper - it's where the 'A' bubble is!

Dr. Jennifer and Marty
She has 4 furry children as well. Two cats - Marty and Isabelle. And two dogs - Tucker and Lacy.

NC State is where she went for both undergrad and vet school. 

When asked what her favorite breed of dog is - she said that she likes hounds!  And if she could own an exotic animal - it would be a Tortoise. 

Dr. Jennifer and her husband love to travel to the mountains and the beach when they can. 

Her favorite part of being a veterinarian is when she can help an animal in whatever way that may be. And if she could be anything other than a vet - she would be a stay at home mom! :)

Fun fact: Dr. Jennifer used to show horses - Western Pleasure - but now hardly touches them. 

Dr. Jennifer services the Mecklenburg, Cabarrus and Iredell counties including Charlotte, Concord, Kannapolis, Huntersville, Mooresville and more.

  1. Dr. Hawthorne is a wonderful person and vet. She helped my family twice this summer, once with my old girl Hazel in August and then in September we called on her once again to help my dad's Aussie mix cross over. She was a god send to us. She gave both of those sweet old ladies a gracious send off and will be forever in our prayers.

  2. Dr. Hawthorne,
    Thank you for making a horrible time bearable by coming to the house to put Biko to rest in his own home.
    I can't imagine trying to get a 70LB dog that couldn't walk to the vets office to be put down.
    You are providing a wonderful service.

  3. Thank you for your kind comments. I am proud to be able to provide such a needed service to our faithful friends.

  4. Thank you Dr. Hawthorne from the bottom of my heart for your kind and gentle attention with my baby, Rocco, and for making special accommodations. I concur with the previous poster; it is no easy task to transport very large doggies. Also, it gave me more peace of mind that my baby would be in his familiar settings. I am very grateful that you provide this wonderful service; any doubt about my decision was quickly alleviated when I saw how peaceful the process was and how much care you showed.

  5. Thank you for coming as helping us say goodbye to Kirby this week. We will never forget the beautiful sendoff you helped us to create. Your service is surely selfless and so VERY much appreciated.

      Thank you Denise. I am glad I could be there to help her earn her wings. May she rest in peace.

  6. Dr. Hawthorne we wanted to say thank you for your kindness and gentleness that allowed our girls Bailey and Pepper to leave this world in such a comfortable and dignified way. This was truly one of the most difficult things we ever did and your tenderness and compassion helped ease our pain. Thank you for working with Faithful Companions who had the same gentle touch and kindness. We posted a tribute to the girls on Lap of Love, Facebook and the many kind and thoughtful posts expressed by others have begun to help us heal. God bless you for the work you do. Laura Dan King
