Shannon Cabell

"Shannon Cabell was very nice and understanding. She helped my baby Hobbes go peacefully, at home, with me. I would recommend this service to anyone in a similar situation.

I talked to a Lap of Love Grief Counselor, Stephanie Rogers, at (855) 352-5683. She is amazing and so helpful in helping me get through this difficult time. Much better than any other grief counselor I've spoken with so far, she's really wise and understands grief and has a lot of empathy. Please call her if you feel like you need to talk to someone. And if anyone at Lap of Love is reading this, give her a raise!! lol

Thank you, Stephanie, Shannon, and ..."

Nellie Wilbers

"Dr Nellie was so loving with Cecil. It was a very hard time for our family. Dr Nellie explained every step. She was very calm, gentle and compassionate. We are so thankful she was here to help Cecil cross the rainbow bridge."

Carol Geissler

Sierra Hedrick

"Dr. Sierra was kind and soft spoken. She talked to our dogs and they seemed to trust her. Her kind words to us made a difficult time a little better. Thanks to Dr. Sierra and Lap of Love, our sweet Bear was able to pass peacefully at home."

Ashley Payne

"I want to thank Lap of Love and Dr. Ashley Payne for making our Lexie’s journey over the Rainbow Bridge such a peaceful journey last week. While we are still trying to get used to Lexie’s absence, the caring manner of Dr. Ashley made us grateful that Lexie was comfortable to the end. Thank you again."

Mary Devlin

"We had to say goodbye to our sweet guy, Oscar, after 12 years of his generous cuddles, hilarious attempts to fit into boxes half his size, and goofy napping postures. I dreaded this day, especially because it had to be during the time of COVID-19. I was  fortunate to learn of Lap of Love from a friend, and I made full use of all the incredibly helpful resources on their website, which helped me through this hard decision. Dr. Mary came to our house, sat with me on the floor, each of us with our masks on, and just talked for a time, about Oscar, his life, his illness, his personality. I felt like she was also getting to know me, and ..."

Kathryn Dodgson

Heather Manfredi

"Our family would like to share our heartfelt thanks for everything Dr. Heather did to help our sweet Newfie girl, Sasha, pass on pain free and peacefully. This was one of the hardest decisions we had to make as it was Sasha’s body that was failing her not her mind. She had been in so much pain over the past couple of months and there was nothing more we could do to help her. She lost her ability to get around on her own and @ 140 lbs our Newfie girl was suffering more and more each day. However, having Dr. Heather there with us helped us to understand what end-of-life care was all about.....not just alleviating Sasha’s pain ..."

“Cecil was adopted with his brother Cyrus from Cozy Cat cottage in Powell Ohio. He came from a litter of 7, tiniest kitten with a loud voice telling us “get me out of here”. That voice never changed. Cecil was vocal, especially in the morning. No need for an alarm clock. He told you when breakfast was to be served. Our first stop every morning ...

“Look at her beautiful smile! We had the great fortune of adopting a senior pet at the Humane Society in 2014. She was 9 when her first human mom had passed away. She had been through a lot! When she joined our family, she already knew every possible trick! What a great girl! She was smart, funny, fluffy, playful, kind, silly, sweet, gentle, ...

She was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and despite starting treatment, clinically worsened. She was subsequently diagnosed with kidney failure, barely drank, and stopped eating. She was tired, so tired. Our hearts were ...

“Our family couldn't have wished for a sweeter girl. For 15 years, Saleen has always shown our family truly unconditional love, from her first steps into our home, through her last moments shared with us. All she has ever wanted was to be in our presence, never asking for anything more than a little love.

Through the happy times, she was so ...
