Merlin is a frequent visitor to Avenal Park Funeral Home, and he welcomes visitors with his wonderful smile and temperament. Merlin is not a therapy dog, but he can bring comfort without saying a word.

Research indicates dogs provide a unique way to cope with loss. The presence of a dog is enough to release “feel good” hormones such as serotonin and oxytocin. They are able to soothe when someone is sad or in mourning. They can also be a welcome distraction.

If during your time of loss, you would like to meet Merlin, please advise your Funeral Director at Avenal Park Funeral Home - Nigel, Donna, Chris or Mel.

Avenal Park Funeral Home (including Merlin) – there when you need them.
If you have any questions, please contact us on 03 218 9021 or call to our office at 75 Fox Street, Invercargill.
