Annie Dion-Byrd, DVM

"Beau, our mixed bread hound of 14.5 years had gotten to the point where he couldn't get up on all fours without assistance from me or my wife. He also couldn't control his bodily functions. Lap of Love was recommended by a close friend. When I contacted them, they were very kind. They only asked a few questions and exhibited so much compassion. A couple of weeks later when we were ready to make the tough decision to let Beau go peacefully, the scheduling was so easy. Dr. Annie arrived right on time. She should so much tenderness and compassion for Beau, my wife and myself. Dr. Annie was never rushed and explained everything before ..."

Nancy Rodriguez, DVM

"Nancy, Cinnamons memorial was perfect.

As much as it hurt my husband and me ,we knew what had to be done. Because of you we were able to do what needed to be done and allow Cinnamon to pass with the dignity that she deserved . .It takes a special person to do what you do, helping families get thru a very difficult time. I will never forget the compassion and care you showed my sweetness girl, and the understanding of my grief. I can not thank you enough, may GOD bless you."


Sally Lynch, DVM

"Dr. Sally helped more than I can describe in the time I have left before I must leave for work. I hope I can edit this later."

Brad Bates, VMD

"Dear, sweet, crabby sissy-witch,

How can I ever put down in words how much you mean to me? To say you were my spirit animal is an understatement. I have so many words for you, Ti; so many things in my mind and my heart that I will speak into the wind now that you're no longer here. Poppy says the love is eternal, and of course he is right. Still, I wish you were here with me. Thank you for taking care of my heart more than I could ever take care of you. Thank you for 18 years of unconditional love.

Your Popples and your Googer continue to miss your disdain. Secretly, and also outwardly, they know you loved them. Those gentle ..."

Samantha Souther, DVM

"Thank you to Dr. Souther, an angel who came and made the hardest decision I had to make, bearable. Your light touch and kind heart made Kitton's last moments on earth stress free and peaceful. There is nothing easy about saying goodbye to your best friend, and you handled the situation with grace and warmth. I didn't want to take Kitton out of the house for the end, and your service allowed me to give her a peaceful passing at home. Thank you Laps of Love and Dr. Sam."

Ridley Park, Pennsylvania

Melanie Santspree, DVM

"Dr. Melanie Santspree was the the best. We could not have asked for a better person to help us with Frank. She treated Frank like he was her own, and was very gentle and loving with him. We cannot say enough good things about her and the way she handled everything."

“My best friend and companion is gone, and there are many empty spaces in my home where she used to be. My sweet Kitton was my lovey, and she was patient and loyal, yet totally independent. She liked to sit with me but juuuuuuust far enough away that we weren't actually touching because she valued her own space. I came to respect and love that ...
