Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to meet Dr. Shannon regardless of the unfortunate situation. She made such a difficult moment seem a little bit easier.

Dr. Shannon Cabell is a wonderful, kind hearted, and professional doctor who has assisted our family over the years with saying goodbye to our furry family members. From the moment she arrives her presence is known - a comforting one at that. She is knowledgeable in what she is performing and takes the time to explain the process that will occur always leaving time for questions or concerns.

After a detailed step-by-step explanation she then get's all the "paperwork" out of the way and during this time you are able to comfort your furry friend, share stories, etc. Before beginning, Dr. Shannon allows you as much time as you would like to say an official goodbye to your furry friend. Prior to each step of the procedure Dr. Shannon makes sure to explain what she is doing and how it will effect your furry friend.

With patience and grace Dr. Shannon gives you all the time in the world to say a final goodbye. Again, in such a difficult moment Dr. Shannon provides a little but of ease and comfort.

Separate from the in person experience - with every phone call in the customer support has been amazing. Everyone whom I've spoken to has been considerate, empathetic, understanding, and knowledgable in their services.

This team comes highly recommended from our family to yours!

Dogs (and cats) are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.

Thank you Lap of Love and Thank you Dr. Shannon <3"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"My husband and I highly recommend Dr. Shannon. We worked with her in late June 2020.

She was kind, compassionate and patient during one of our most terrible days. She treated our beloved pet with dignity and was incredibly patient with our emotions and our many, many questions. Her presence and demeanor are calming and healing and we’re so grateful to her for her support, kindness and professionalism.

We would absolutely rely on her if the need for her services once again arises."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"I want to give a huge shout out and thanks to Dr. Shannon Cabell. I was referred to "Lap of Love" and Dr. Cabell arrived next day. She listened as well as gave her thoughts and advice but making sure the choice was ultimately mine. I decided it was time to let Champ go.
Her compassion and kindness is immeasurable- she took extreme care of Champ until the very end.
I am eternally grateful."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"With the current situation of Quarantine due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, you cannot go into the vet with your pet, and I was not going to let my cat cross the rainbow bridge without being there with her to comfort her and and hold her during the process.

My 19 year old Miss Cookie had reached the end of her journey here with me. She was frail and weak, and was telling me she was ready to go onto her next life. I read a post on Facebook about a woman looking for a vet to do an in home euthanasia. I never knew it existed. I called CARES to see if they could help me, and the girl at reception recommended Laps of Love. From the very start of the call, as I cried and told my story, they comforted me and gently talked me through the process and options. Two days later, Dr Shannon Cabell (who had been a vet we used and loved In Westfield, NJ) showed up at my home. Her Calm and comforting demeanor, put me at ease immediately. She allowed me to take my time with the last moments with Miss Cookie. She also let her be in her favorite spot on my lap as her last place on earth. A lock of her hair and a paw print memento, were given to me after she was gone. The option to bury her at home made the world of difference. She has a beautiful grave on our property, which I cherish.

Thank you Dr. Cabell and Laps of Love for making my last moments with my angel Miss Cookie comforting, loving, and beautiful.

More people need to know about your service!"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"We had no idea when we arranged to have Laps of Love come to our home, that it would be a vet we used to see in our old town years ago. Dr. Cabell was a joy to see again, and a comfort to have send Miss Cookie on her passage over the rainbow bridge. She allowed Miss Cookie to be where she wanted in her last moments, which was my lap. It made me know I was comforting Cookie before her Journey. I highly recommend her to all, as she is a gentle, sweet person whose way with animals is amazing. Thank you Dr Cabell, I am so glad it was you!"Tippy BielenbergTitusvilleJune 24, 2020Miss Cookie's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"A month ago today our dear boy, Kenzo passed into doggie heaven. He took a turn a few days earlier, he was a few weeks shy of 13. With the loving, professional assistance of Dr Shannon, our sweet guy was able to relax with his family at his side & gently slip away into eternal slumber.
We highly recommend Lap of Love. From my first conversation with the receptionist to Dr Shannon leaving from our home, we felt love & compassion from everyone who dealt with us.
Thank you again for this beautiful service you are able to provide.
Warmly,
The Gosselin Family"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"Dr. Cabell helped to make this most very difficult decision so much more pleasant than we could have ever expected. Her calmness in her demeanor when she spoke to us on the phone to meeting us and Sarah in person was fantastic. She never rushed the process, explained everything as she went along and gave us the time we needed each step of the way. Dr. Cabell was so patient and gentle with all of us including the handling of our baby Sarah. Not that I want to recommend anyone to have to go through putting their pet down, but happens to us all, and when your time comes, I can't imagine doing it any other way than at home and with Lap of Love, Dr. Cabell. Thank you!"Rachel CastorManalapanJune 11, 2020Sarah's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"Having to contact anyone to help end the life of your pet is near impossible however this entire process was nothing short of amazing. Dr. Cabell was so kind and even came to our home during the pandemic when we knew it was time. I can also say that in my research to find a visiting vet service the prices vary, but Lap of Love's services were by far the highest value for exceptionally reasonable cost. I cannot recommend their services enough. Thank you again Dr. Cabell for helping my handsome Marcus end his pain."Kaeleb ConnellyEwingJune 10, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"We feel so fortunate to have had Dr. Shannon Cabell and Lap of Love be able to help us when it was time to let our sweet Hondo go. It is such a difficult decision to make, but from the first phone call until the very end, everyone was understanding, sympathetic and kind. For Hondo to be able to stay in his big, comfy bed for his last breaths and heartbeats meant everything to us. Thank you for this wonderful service. We miss our boy terribly, but know that we gave him the best and most gentle passing."Cheryl DutillCranburyJune 9, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"Dr. Cabell was so kind and gentle with our Cali. She allowed for us to say goodbye and guided us through the process. Cali passed with dignity surrounded by love.
When my other babies need to cross the rainbow bridge they will have the same experience and not be in a vet hospital scared."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"My cat was 18 years old. But, I never really saw her as an old girl. She was not feeling well and throwing up, one night I went to assist her and she bit me. She drew blood. Also, she was snapping at me. I became afraid of her. I called the Vet and was told due to the Covid-19, I could not bring her in. I was given Lap of Love phone number.
Dr. Cabell, was wonderful during this very sad day. She really understood what I was going through. She also, followed up a few days later, which was so appreciated.
Today, is one month, and I have gone from every emotion, guilt, sadness, etc. It is like losing a member of your family.
I thank Dr. Cabell, for her kindness and her skills. I thank God, for her."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"This was our second experience with Lap of Love and Dr. Cabell. Dr. Cabell was extremely understanding, compassionate, helpful and so empathetic through one of the hardest times in our lives. Our precious Millie was our beautiful baby, she brought joy to our world every day! It absolutely killed us to have to make the choice of sending her to the heavens above. Her last hour was soft, serene, peaceful and filled with so much love. Dr. Cabell made Millie so comfortable throughout her passing, she simply fell fast asleep with no struggle.
I am truly grateful to this selfless service of Lap of Love."

It was a very difficult decision for us to make, during a very difficult time in the world right now. And Dr. Shannon's kind words and professionalism put all of us at ease.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"Dr. Shannon was very calming for our family during this very difficult time putting our beloved Bella down. The entire experience with Lap of Love was very comforting (from the initial call, intake of information and the visit from Dr. Shannon) and we appreciate the professionalism and support during this very difficult time. We highly recommend in-home euthanasia as our pretty Bella was comforted by all of those that loved her for 14 years. Thank you again."Lisa SantangeloFLEMINGTONMay 20, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"Throughout my existence, my animals have been an extremely important part of my life. Having lost my immediate family early in my life for the most part, they have fulfilled that important gap. Over the last two weeks I lost two of my beloved pets; Tommy, a 21 year old cat and Freida, a 12 year old German Shepherd. Both of these animals slept on my bed with me during their entire lives. Thankfully, I was able to hold and cuddle them both until their last moments.
We are never prepared for the end of our animal's lives even though we know it may be near, and when it comes it is heart wrenching to say the least. How they transition to the Rainbow Bridge can be devastating - sometimes I think more so for us than them.
Freida, collapsed on a Sunday morning with no ability to get up any longer. I knew it was time but the thought of taking her to a strange place was upsetting Fortunately, Lap of Love, demonstrated that to me, that this transition did not have to be as horrific for my pet or for me. I am so appreciative of the manner in win which Dr. Shannon Cabell responded to our desperate plea for help. Her compassionate manner was evident from the time she walked through the door. She was soft spoken and gentle, and empathic... qualities that all of us admire and hope for in our caretakers. Dr. Cabell made Freida's transition the smoothest transition the I have ever witnessed and for that I am forever grateful and appreciative ."
Nancy GrbeljaClarksburgMay 16, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"I want to thank you for your kindness and compassionate presence during Freida’s final moments. Fortunately I had time to cuddle with her during the last nights of her life, but having you come to my home made her passing a seamless process. The transition was so smooth for her and frankly, for me as well.
It really takes a special person with certain characteristics and qualities that can make such an experience as comfortable as you did. Once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"Our family made a tough decision putting our beautiful cockapoo, Shadoe, down. However, we knew it was the best decision we could make for her given her condition. Shadoe gave us 15+ wonderful years of love, laughter, happiness, loyalty, and a little bit of mischief. My whole family was nervous and didn't know what to expect. Dr. Shannon walked us through every step of the process and didn't do anything until we were all ready. She was kind, compassionate, and very comforting. She answered any questions we had with extreme kindness. Thank you, Dr. Shannon, for the empathy and support you showed my family on one of our most difficult days."Jessica BocanegraOld BridgeMay 6, 2020Shadoe's Pet Memorial
