I can't thank you enough. You were the most kind hearted, sweet, calm, caring person I could have asked for to be with me and my baby on his last day. He kissed you the second you sat on the floor with us and it broke my heart - he loved everyone he met. My sweet baby is no longer in pain and able to stand & run as fast as he wants now.

I wish times were different so I could have hugged you. Thank you for his foot print and hair from his ear. I will forever cherrish them.

Thank you for taking my boy with you & putting a blanket pillow under his head and blanket around him. Every little detail I noticed. Thank you ..."

Elena Esparza

"Dr. Elena was extremely patient with us and was kind enough to follow up with us the day after to give her condolences and check in to see how we were doing. We really appreciate how kind and professional she was during the whole process."

Lorraine Arnold

Abigail Shearin, VMD, PhD

"Dr. Abby was very kind and empathetic, and helped our beloved Chloe have a peaceful transition. Although it was a difficult time, her loving kindness toward Chloe and our family is much appreciated."

Heather Manfredi

"Beans was a part of our family for 15 years, he was a year old when we adopted him. It had became clear at the end of May that he was struggling. We reached out to our vet and because of Covid 19 we would not be able to be with Beans at the end. That was not going to work for us. Our vet recommended Lap of Love as an alternative. We called and were connected with Dr. Heather. We set up an appointment and she came to our house. Dr. Heather met Beans and let our other dog Bailey be present, sniffing her to no end and watching over his brother. Dr Heather was compassionate and kind. She spoke to us about what would happen and she ..."

Ashley Payne

"Words cannot express our gratitude for Dr. Payne and Dr. Donya. Lap of Love supported us three years ago when we said goodbye to our Gatsby and we knew when his daughter Sweet Dee was ready we called them right away. Their kindness, warmth, patience and compassion were just what we needed during a stressful time. What a blessing and their team are truly a blessing."

Kristi Sullivan

Carrie Dobey

"Words cannot express how grateful we are to Lap of Love and especially to Dr. Dobey. I don't know what she had planned on her Sunday, the day after the 4th of July at that, but she dropped whatever she was doing and came to us in our time of need. I called this morning at around 8:00 am and she was at our home by 11:00 am. I mean who does that? People who really care that's who. To be able to let our precious Buffy go to her heavenly home while still in her earthly home and on her own bed was the best send off we could possibly imagine for her. This type of decision seems almost impossible to make but unfortunately it has ..."

“My sweet baby boy is gone. I'm completely broken 💔 The morning of July 4th, I had to make one of the hardest decisions & put my 13 1/2 year old English Lab to sleep. He is now running around puppy heaven with his brother Chicken eating all the food & taking all the naps. Bentley was the best dog I could have ever asked for. We were there for ...

We love you, sweet boy. Rest in peace 💔🐾”

“Chloe, also known affectionately to our family as "Dinkum," was a lovely, sweet, and bright-eyed Scottish Fold who brought much love and happiness to our lives. She had a strong independent streak, but also gave lots of kisses and purred easily. She was an important part of our family and will be in our hearts forever. We love and miss you, ...
