In Loving Memory

Welcome to our “In Loving Memory” Page. This page is a memorial gallery for our clients to post their favorite photograph of a beloved pet. Below we have posted links for organizations where a donation can be made in a pet’s name to help other animals in need. In addition we have also provided the names of groups that can help pet owners with grieving the loss of a pet.

Thank you for visiting and helping to honor these faithful companions!

Due to limited space on our website we will now be posting pet names beneath this flickering candle in remembrance of loved pets. We hope to be able to resume photo posting in the future.

~The Rainbow Bridge~

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine,

and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….
