Annie Dion-Byrd, DVM

"I cannot say enough kind words about Dr. Annie and Lap of Love. Our beloved Rags took a sudden bad turn and I made the dreaded phone call - but was blown away by the kindness and compassion shown to us by everyone we came in contact with at Lap of Love. Dr. Annie tapped on our door a few short hours later and was like an angel coming into our lives. She immediately put us all at ease and showed a level of caring and compassion that could only come from the heart of a true animal lover. She encouraged us to take all the time we needed to say our goodbyes and carefully guided us thru each step. She was so gentle and loving with Rags ..."

Katie Stender, DVM

"Saying goodbye to a beloved pet is arguably one of the most difficult things to do. My sweet girl, Daisy, had been such a huge part of my life, rescuing me a year before my beautiful mother passed away. Even though I brought Daisy home from the shelter and became a "foster failure" (I never gave her back), she really is the one who saved me. She showed me unconditional love and devotion at a time when I needed it most.

Having to let go of Daisy was nothing short of devastating, but Dr. Katie was with me and my dad every step of the way. I could not have asked for a more gentle, caring and compassionate person to come into ..."

Heather Manfredi, DVM

"Our thank you to Dr Heather:

Thanks for making a very difficult day a bit less difficult. Denise and I couldn't have asked for a better person to come over and help us say goodbye to Arizona.

We will never forget that day and the great service you did for all three of us.

Thank you speaking with us on Saturday about Arizona. It meant a lot to us both."

Amy Tanis, DVM

"Dr. Amy was our visiting angel the day CJ crossed the bridge. My little girl was 16 and blind. She'd been declining for awhile and I knew it was a matter of time before the decision to let her go was at hand. I wrestled with finding the right time although putting her in a carrier where her last moments would have been in abject fear was not something I could not find the courage to do. After several days of this torment and many prayers for wisdom, a friend of mine suggested Lap of Love. The moment I left a message with Laurie, care coordinator, my heart was soothed. Within the hour I received a call back and arrangements had been ..."

Fort Mill, S. Carolina

Daniel Genatiempo, DVM

"Dr. Dan and Lap of Love made our difficult decision so much easier. Oscar was a dog with a lot of anxiety on his good days. Going to a veterinary office for the last moments of his life would have been traumatic and difficult for all of us. Because of Dr. Dan and Lap of Love, we were able to spend Oscar's last moments on our own couch, in our own home, with no anxiety for Oscar at all. Dr. Dan could not have been more compassionate and genuine. I highly recommend Lap of Love and specifically Dr. Dan. Thank you so much for providing this important service."

Heather Manfredi, DVM

"Dr Heather,

Thanks for making a very difficult day a bit less difficult. Denise and I couldn't have asked for a better person to come over and help us say goodbye to Arizona.

We will never forget that day and the great service you did for all three of us.

Thank you speaking with us on Saturday about Arizona and also for the FB post. It meant a lot to us both.

“Arizona was our protector and loyal companion. She guarded the perimeter of our house to the fullest extent any dog possibly could. She also followed us wherever we went to make sure we were safe. Despite her protectiveness Arizona was very people friendly. However not so much with other dogs and animals, in fact she hated them, but that did ...
