•  During an Animal Reading, Susan will give you information about your pet's emotional, mental, and physical state*.  She has an intuitive ability to feel what animals are experiencing.  When she finds issues, she will intuitively assess what is causing the behavior or problem along with suggestions to solve such.
  •  Whether you are having a problem or just want to know how your pet feels about a situation, Susan can assist you.
•  Once Susan gives you what she receives, your reading will be interactive with her and you will be able to ask questions about your pet.
•  Just like with humans, life experiences shape the personality and behavior of animals.  Susan's goal is to provide you with a better overall understanding of your animal and, with that, a better relationship with your pet.  




Over the years, Susan has personally been the proud owner of a horse, various cats, dogs, hamsters, birds, rabbits and chickens.


At the age of 10, she taught her dog how to count and would often do performances for the neighbors.  Her father, who trained Military Police dogs in World War II, taught her the behavior techniques he utilized when she was 15.  By the time she was 18, she could ride her horse without a bridle, not an easy task even for a skilled rider.  Apparently, her Animal Communication abilities started at a very young age.


Soon, she began to realize that she could sense and feel what horses and other animals were experiencing physically, mentally, and emotionally.  At first, she hesitated to pass on this information to others.  By her early twenties, she had developed the confidence to share the information she was receiving with animal owners and they began to verify the information she received was correct.


Decades later, she would leave the professional world as a Licensed Insurance Agent to utilize her intuition to assist animals and humans full time as an Animal Communicator, Animal Medium, and Psychic Medium.  Many of her clients, both human and animal, are very grateful she made that choice.




Is Your Pet's History A Mystery?

If you are the proud owner of an animal adopted from a rescue or shelter, you are now among the majority of pet owners.  Your noble act should be commended.  You may have some limited background on your adoptee such as “likes kids” or “needs activity” yet a large part of this animal’s life is unknown.  To put it simply, your pet’s history is a mystery.


Many clients seek out Susan when adopted animals exhibit behavioral problems that cannot be resolved.  Susan’s practice as an Animal Communicator includes both the ability to assess an animal and access its past as a means to identify the cause of the problem.  With the underlying reason revealed, Susan can then identify potential solutions to correct the present behavior.  Sessions are conducted by Phone, Skype, FaceTime, and In Person.


Why does Max howl?


Max is a seven year-old Tabby cat recently adopted by a couple.  Whenever either of them were home during daylight hours, Max would approach and continuously howl at them. They tried new food, new toys, playing with him, but he would still sit in front of them and howl. Concerned, they took him to the vet.  They found nothing wrong with him.


The  couple booked a phone Animal Reading with Susan.  When she focused on Max and the howling, she saw him outside on a harness and leash being walked by an older man.  Max looked very happy and it was clear to Susan that his previous owner walked him regularly with a harness.  She relayed this information to her clients and suggested they try walking him outside with a harness and leash.


A couple of weeks later, the couple contacted Susan to let her know the howling stopped once they started walking Max a few times a week with a harness and leash. In fact, the first time they put the harness on him, he just sat there and let them. Anyone who has cats knows how difficult it can be to put a harness on a cat along with the fact that most cats will not go for walks.


By seeing the missing piece in Max’s history, Susan’s clients now understood what he wanted.  "It was as if he was a dog,” they said. The irony is the couple always wanted a dog but couldn’t have one where they lived.  Now, Max the “dog cat” happily accompanies them on their hiking trips and outdoor adventures.


Why does Cleo have such a strong reaction to collars?


A client adopted a three year-old Labrador retriever from a rescue out of state.  Every time they tried to put a collar on Cleo, she would duck and back away.  It was a struggle, often taking fifteen minutes to get the collar on, with the ducking and cowering continuing when they walked her.  They tried different collars, thinking this was the root of the problem, to no avail.  They consulted a behaviorist, but the problem continued.


Susan’s client contacted her for an Animal Reading via phone.  During the reading, Susan saw Cleo as a puppy.  A man was dragging her across the floor by the ears over and over again. When she looked forward, it appeared this abuse continued for at least a year.  Over the years, Susan’s communication sessions reveal that an animal’s experience of time is different than humans.  Instead of seeing a past, present, and future, animals experience all time as now in the present.  This is why a traumatic incident from the animal’s past can so strongly effect them.


Susan communicated with Cleo and explained that this family would never do this to her, they were not connected to the man who did this, and she had nothing to be afraid of.  She asked Cleo if her new owner could gently touch her head and ears.  Susan’s client did so and for the first time Cleo didn’t back away.  By the end of the session her client had the collar on her and she was calm.


To reinforce Cleo’s new reality, Susan encouraged her client to talk to Cleo and tell her when she would be touching her head or ears and why.  Cleo’s fears vanished into the past where they should never be seen again, and her present life became the joy that this dog so badly needed.

"Susan provided our family a great service when she gave insight on our rescue dog Scout.  Susan was spot on in regards to Scout’s rough upbringing in a hoarding situation, letting us know that she wasn’t always able to eat every day and was constantly fending for herself and fighting for her life.  Susan let us know that Scout was very happy in her new situation and loved her new family and big house (without other dogs!).

The most valuable information provided was about Scout’s food. We had been feeding her Fromm’s per the rescue’s recommendation, but Susan was able to identify Scout’s consistent upset stomach due to the ingredients of the food. I was impressed with this reading, since Scout was having inconsistent bowel movements and she had thrown up three nights in a row. I told Susan that Scout had been grazing on the food throughout the morning/evening unless we mixed it with wet food. Turns out, dogs only graze when there is something in the food they do not want to eat. Susan recommended a different food and within the first meal Scout was gobbling up her dry food and her bowel movements became much more consistent and she was no longer getting sick!

I plan on using Susan’s services whenever we have a tough situation with Scout and we need some advice!"

"I adopted my dog Josie when she was 13 yrs old.  Five months later she  became very destructive, I thought it could be separation anxiety.  I made a phone appointment with you for an animal reading.  During the reading, you said her behavior was due to her having difficulties with some loss of her senses... hearing and eye sight.  She didn’t know how to cope with it. You suggested she needed another dog companion to help her through the times that I couldn’t be with her.  

I arranged to have Mikey, a lab mix who she had met twice before, come over for a visit. Mikey was dropped off before I left for work When I returned I was surprised to find Josie sound asleep on the couch and Mikey relaxing on the floor.  Nothing was disturbed in the house she had not destroyed anything!   

Josie’s personality has completely changed from an older seemingly lethargic dog to a young, vibrant, happy puppy-like personality. To see her jump up and down from the couch chasing me and running from one room to the other with tail wagging, you would think I gave her a miracle pill!  The miracle was your assessment of her failing senses and knowing that this particular dog needed an animal companion to help her.   

I tried to set up more play dates between the two but didn’t succeed for almost a month.  No problem, Josie was fine!  All I can say is whatever you said to Josie worked.  Josie and Mikey enjoy each other’s company and we will continue with future play dates.

Thank you. You’ve given both of us a new life."

"I have counted on Susan several times to help me gain insight into our beloved pets mysteries as a way of making a connection and understanding of what they feel, want, need from me, or my family.  My recent experience with Susan was critical to us--we rescued a pit bull mix puppy--soon a skin rash broke out that had us exhausted and tearful.   When the vets could not figure out the problem--I knew it was time for another call with Susan.   Not only did she figure out the problem, but something unexpected happened.  She encouraged me to have my husband Jeff interact with the dog at this time to 'draw him out'.

What Susan didn't know was that my husband's mother and father had recently passed within months of each other.  Susan's insight was able to connect a closed hearted Jeff with a little pup to pull him out of his shell and live again--he plays and teaches this dog as I have never seen him do before with any of our animals and he is happy again.

God bless you and your gift!  I pray more people will open their hearts and listen to their pets needs through an animal communicator like Susan Deren."

"My friend and I attended your animal event at Winnekenni Castle.  You immediately were drawn to me and started talking about my newest dog.  You described him in such detail, and what amazed us was the fact that he wasn't there with us, and you had no picture of him.  I told you nothing about him.

Well, you gave me very specific things to do to make him happy and to stop destroying our furniture.  I took your recommendations very seriously.  We all started doing exactly what you told me to do.  Well as of today, he hasn't destroyed anything.  He is so happy and amazing.

My husband and family are still in shock!  They thought he was a hopeless case and we'd have to give him up.  Not anymore!  We just love the little guy and he is now a happy member of our family.  Thank you so much Susan."

"Hi Susan, I don't know if you remember me, but you gave me a reading for my dog Murphy over the phone.

I rescued Murphy and he was a train wreck.  You gave me specific things to do that would help him and gave me some great advice about him.  Fast forward 1 year later...I have the sweetest best boy on the planet.  He is awesome now!"

*Susan Deren is an "intuitive" and in all readings, gives her intuitive impressions of what is happening with your animal.  Intuitive guidance is not a substitute for your veterinarian's care.  If your animal is sick or injured, please see a doctor immediately.








We have noticed that many sites offering readings for animals require you to complete a questionnaire detailing the
 animal's history and condition
we do not.


Susan believes it's her job to assess the animal
 via her communication and intuitive abilities
 and make suggestions based upon such.
