Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Thanks to Lap of Love and Dr. Sally. She made the passing of our beloved Rottweiler Remy, about as easy as such a thing can be.
She is compassionate as eases you and your pet into it. Cant thank Dr. Sally and Lap of Love enough. I called in the morning and she was at my house before 11:00. Also made a nice paw imprint. I would highly recommend their services."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Dr. Sally is such a kind, compassionate, caring and loving person. From the moment that she entered the room, you could feel her love for our Wilson. This was such a very, very difficult time, but Dr. Sally made it easier. I just cannot praise her enough. Thank you Dr. Sally!"Ann MarcoliniAttleboroMarch 3, 2019Wilson's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"I could not have been happier with how tender Dr. Sally was with Janis. She confirmed my decision in the most comforting way possible, and made the entire ordeal as smooth as it could have been. There was no doubt in my mind she was the right person to help me give Janis her angel wings. She was gentle, kind, discreet, and understanding."Margo RomanowskiBrightonFebruary 22, 2019Janis Joplin's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"When Fenway, my senior Boston Terrier, made it clear to me that it was time to say goodbye, I was completely panicked that his fear of the vet would make his last moments miserable. Although Fenway was always wonderful with the people that he trusted, he was unfortunately reactive with strangers, which made every trip to the vet a complete nightmare for both of us. Although the last few days without Fenway have been empty, I have taken great comfort in knowing that his last moments were peaceful, comfortable, and even joyful thanks to Dr. Sally Lynch.

Dr. Sally went out of her way to be patient with Fenway and to work with us to make sure that he was cozy in his bed, surrounded by those he trusted when it was time to say goodbye. She was happy to proceed at whatever pace was best for us and was so kind and gentle in every way. Despite the heartbreaking loss, I feel so incredibly grateful each day that we have only warm and pleasant memories of saying our goodbyes. Thank you so much for the gift you have given us."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Saying goodbye to Snoopy was one of the hardest decisions we had to make as a family since Snoopy was such an integral part of our home. But because of old age was taking a toll on his body, Snoopy’s quality of life was declining and we could see that he wanted to rest. We called Lap of Love since we wanted Snoopy to spend his last moments in the comfort of his home, and we are so glad that we did. Thank you Dr. Sally Lynch for being so kind to Snoopy in his final moments and talking us through the process. We couldn’t have asked for a better way for Snoopy to rest in peace."Mary Rikka GuillenLowellFebruary 17, 2019Snoopy's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"When I got the news that my beautiful 15 year old baby girl Maddie was going to have to leave us soon, our vet recommended Lap of Love. I was so apprehensive and didn’t know what to expect. Dr. Sally came to our home and had an immediate soothing and caring energy about her. She explained the entire process and let me have as much time as I needed. I cannot say enough about her. She was exactly who I needed to be there. My husband was stuck out of town due to weather (she came during a snow storm). She was gentle and kind and treated Maddie like she was her own. Thank you for making the worst day one that I can also look back on with fond memories of how peaceful it was."Samantha TerrioStonehamJanuary 29, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Thank you Dr. Sally. You were kind and compassionate and helped us at a time of great distress by guiding us to make the right choice, one that was best for Bobo. He was a proud, independent dog and you helped him keep his dignity in his final hour. If I should be so lucky this is how I would like to go, slip into a deep deep sleep in the arms of those how loved me most. Thank you."Debarati Bhattacharya BhattacharyaCambridge, MAJanuary 24, 2019Bobo's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Dr. Sally was amazing, she made the process feel more as though I was helping my 17 1/2 yr old Taj let go and end any pain...rather than feeling like I was "putting him down". She came in with dog pheromones sprayed on her so Taj was sniffing her all over. I held him while she injected the sedative. She let him walk\stumble around, Taj was playful and still eating his Kelly's roast beef. He laid in my arms for a few minutes and we placed him in his bed when she gave the final injection. The whole time from beginning to end the doctor talked to Taj with a calming voice and took him away in a cushioned wicker basket. Thank you Dr. Sally & Lap of Love for your service and compassion. <3

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Dr. Sally helped us say goodbye to our sweet, 14.5 year old, yellow Lab, Luna. It was a very sad moment yet Dr Sally was so patient, compassionate and respectful of the needs and wishes of my husband and myself, as well as Luna and our other dog. We put Luna down in her bed in our kitchen. I was hesitant to euthanize her this way, but it truly was a beautiful, peaceful, dignified experience. Dr Sally is truly gifted in helping all of us navigate this emotional process. I can’t say enough about how much I appreciate and respect her gentle, knowing touch. She kept all of us together. Saying goodbye to a family pet is so emotional and sad, yet it eventually comes to every pet. Lap of Love and Dr Sally Lynch made our goodbye a beautiful experience so we can remember only good memories of Luna. Thank you. It should be said that every person I spoke with as I was making these plans was compassionate, empathetic, patient and respectful. Thank you Dr Sally; thank you Lap of Love Boston."Elizabeth WilsonNewtonJanuary 21, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Oh Gizmo...you were just an amazing cat. You were a silly boy, a food lover, a cuddler and a lap cat. You came into our lives two weeks after the loss of Lyndsay's 19 1/2 year old cat Tawni, and you mended our broken hearts. You were part Maine Coon and part Tabby, and your huge mits (paws) could catch flies and put them directly into your mouth! You were also so in tune with us. You knew when we were sick or were having a bad day, and you were always there, right on our laps or cuddling up on the bed. You reached out with your paw to touch us sometimes; you were such a connected boy! And you could roll over on command, almost like a dog! We so miss your head at the top of the stairs when we get home, and miss your chatter throughout the day. You were the most talkative cat that I've ever met, and you had - and still have - a huge fan club! You were sooooo handsome. And mostly you brought joy to our lives every single day, even when you were begging for food in the kitchen or leaving little "presents" around when you weren't happy with the state of your litter box (You had very high standards). You were just adorable, and we miss you every day. Dr. Sally was so kind to help bring you to the other side on November 8 when you passed on. You were tired and had done your work here. We love you so much, Gizmo. You were our little healer kitty. After you passed on at 1:49 pm, and after Dr. Sally left with your body so that you could be cremated, our bedroom was filled with tiny rainbows that weren't coming from a reflection of any kind. We can only think that that was the heavens way of saying just how special you were and are. We have your ashes here at home with us. You're just where you'd want to be: close to your mommies. We will always, always miss you. 11 years doesn't seem like enough time, but we know that your body was tired. Your mommies send you kisses. Love from your mamas, Kathy and Lyndsay."Kathy McCannWatertownDecember 19, 2018

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Dr. Sally was so wonderful during this really difficult process. She was so clear and communicative about what to expect and throughout Toby-wan's passing. She added a sense of calm and never made us feel rushed; she allowed us to take the moments we needed. I couldn't be more grateful to Dr. Sally for making such a hard experience one that was dignified and peaceful - exactly what we wanted for Toby-wan."Marie NguyenSomervilleNovember 30, 2018Toby-wan Kenobi's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Dr. Sally was the gift Sydney and I needed to make our last days together all that they could be. We have never encountered a veterinarian who took as much time, showed as much compassion and caring as Dr. Sally. She was exactly what we both needed to be able to say good-bye in our home in our way. I can never thank her enough for her love, her patience, her compassion, and her sincerity. I will be forever grateful."Susan HilburnArlingtonNovember 16, 2018Sydney's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"We really want to thank Dr. Sally Lynch who came over yesterday to help our sweet Benny move on. She was patient, attentive, and caring the entire time. She made sure we were ok but more importantly made sure that our little pug of 15 years no longer had to suffer. Sally we thank you so much.

To those thinking and struggling with this decision, we know it's hard and we know it doesn't get easier but I promise you that when you get there, there is no better person to have by your pet's side than Dr. Sally Lynch."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"It was with heavy hearts that we had to make the decision to say goodbye to our sweet Wicked. Our vet recommended Lap of Love, and we were so very fortunate to have Dr. Sally Lynch come into our home to give Wicked the end-of-life experience she deserved.

Dr. Sally was kind and caring - calmly guiding us through each step of the experience. When Wicked had finally passed, Dr. Sally gave us the time we needed to say our final goodbyes. Because of Lap of Love, and Dr. Sally Lynch, we will forever treasure our last moments with our sweet girl.

We'd also like to thank Amanda Higgins - our Lap of Love Care Coordinator. The minute I heard Amanda's calm voice on the phone, I knew we were making the right choice for Wicked."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"Dr. Sally is an amazing person, who took care of my sweet boy with dignity and respect. It was so hard for me to make the call, and on Labor Day. Not a problem. She was right on time, even a little early.

She took the time to see him, check him out, do some tests and then we had a talk. I wanted to know if I was doing the right thing. She knew that Seamus was 15-16 years old, evaluated his condition, and assured me, that this was the most compassionate and dignified way to get his wings.

I was happy that the last voice he heard, and the last face he saw was mine. He was tired, this time, I saw "the look". He was on his bed, in his house, and that was very important to me.

Dr. Sally made a print of his paw in plaster, and gave me a lock of his hair. I will be receiving his ashes shortly.
Thank you."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sally Lynch"I want to express my sincere gratitude for the way Dr. Sally handled Buddy's passing with me and my family. I dreaded putting him in a car and returning him to the vet for euthanasia. I wanted to be with him in the comfort and familiarity of our home. Dr. Sally and Lap of Love allowed me to do that, and I am eternally grateful. He was my faithful companion and family member for 11 incredible years, and like all dog owners, I only wish it could have been longer. I miss him terribly, but I know I made the correct and compassionate decision. Dr. Sally brought peace, calm and solace to me and my family. I appreciate that the process was not rushed, Dr. Sally answered all of our questions, and Buddy was treated in a dignified manner the whole time. Words will never convey my true appreciation for what Dr. Sally did. Lap of Love and all dog owners faced with the same difficult decision are blessed to have Dr. Sally."Matthew WilkinsLynnAugust 13, 2018Buddy's Pet Memorial
