Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"Dr. Shannon Cabell was very compassionate and kind toward us and our dear little girl Shelby and truly made a very difficult situation a little easier. She let us take our time and explained everything to us about how the process would work. We were able to take as much time as we needed to comfort Shelby and say goodbye to her in our home. Lap of Love was able to accommodate our needs on relatively short notice so that our sweet little girl could pass on in peace and comfort in her home, and not have to be uncomfortable any longer. Dr. Cabell also carefully made a beautiful paw print in clay that we can cherish forever. A couple of days later, she followed up with a kind email. We will never forget the kindness of Dr. Shannon!"Glenn and Heather MasonSomersetApril 17, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"Dr. Shannon came to pick up our girl who passed prior to Lap of Love's arrival. Dr. Shannon was very sweet and gentle and helped us in our time. In fact, the whole office when I first called to see if they could come earlier was fantastic, calling me back and trying to help us to get our girl the help she needed. Wonderful group of veterinarians."Roseann PettrowBrickApril 3, 2019Roxanne's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"Dr. Shannon did a wonderful job. This is a very hard day for us and a very sad one. She made us very comfortable with the end we knew was coming. And made our dog very comfortable too. It's hard to let any family member go. But we were happy this is the best we could do for him. We did not have to move him and put him in pain going into the car and then the vet. We are very thankful for this service."Frank NovakTrentonApril 1, 2019Shorty's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"I was recommended to contact Lap of Love for the end of Griffin's life. They were the most understanding, and compassionate people that I could have found to help me. Dr. Shannon was a wonderful person to me and to Griffin. She let him go through his normal grumpiness, and gave him all of the care humanly possible. She made me feel comfortable, and not embarrassed in my sadness. I was able to spend quiet time with him, and also had paw prints made for memories. Thank you Dr. Shannon."Cheryl SteinhauerLawrencevilleMarch 13, 2019Griffin's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"To: Dr. Shannon Cabell
I wanted to thank you on behalf of my family for helping us in this difficult time. We had to euthanize Rambo last week. It was a very painful experience, but with your grace and gentile treatment of him, it made a very difficult situation a lot easier. You took the time to talk to us, explaining each step of the way. You gave him treats and hugged us at the end. I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done for us.
I did not think our experience would be lightened by your care. I was under the impression it would be clinical and matter of fact. His passing was so much easier for all of us because of you.
Thank you again for all that you have done. Our last memory of Rambo will be the experience you gave us.
Sincerely:
Rosemary Pepitone"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"Dr. Shannon Cabell was very warm and caring for our situation. She helped ease the pain we were going through with her comforting mannerisms. She explained the process and gave us time to say our goodbyes and relieve Chopper of his sickness. We had Tibetan singing bowls playing to sooth him and us through our final goodbyes. She even made the procedure of wrapping of his body as loving and respectful as possible. His head was still looking at us as we escorted him to her Jeep. It was as hard as saying goodbye to a child going to college, but we knew Chopper wouldn't be coming home."Janine FabianoFreeholdDecember 28, 2018Chopper fabiano's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"My family and I are so very thankful for the absolutely wonderful services Lap of Love had to offer. Our sweet boy, Riley, was suffering from lymphoma. We felt so much support every step of the way. Every single phone call, even the calls lasting an hour or longer, we received nothing but kindness and empathy. I am a very private person and thought I would feel uncomfortable being emotional in front of a stranger during our vulnerable time. Dr. Shannon was so warm and comforting for us all. It was the best ending that I could have ever asked for. Riley was comfortable and anxiety free throughout the whole process, unlike his visits to the vet office. It was such a beautiful experience and so gingerly handled. It meant the world to us that Lap of Love helped provide such an incredible experience for an extremely difficult time. I know Riley is in a better place and truly appreciated the generosity and humanity that was given to him. Thank you to all of the staff at Lap of Love, especially Dr. Shannon. We cannot thank you all enough."Jennifer AdamsFlorenceNovember 29, 2018
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"Words cannot express the care, compassion patience, and understanding Dr. Shannon had for Maddie and for us. She walked us through the process in a calm, caring and comforting way. She allowed us to spend time with Maddie, say our goodbyes, and never felt rushed. She met us at Maddie’s favorite field so that we could say goodbye at the place she loved so much. We cannot thank her enough for her kindness and following up a few days later. We hope that Maddie touched her life in some small way as well."Jim HaddenHamilton SquareNovember 16, 2018Maddie's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"We like to think we rescued Ruby when the truth is, she rescued us. This little diva ran the house and owned our hearts. She let us know when she was done. She made that perfectly clear. Yet having to respect her decision to end her suffering from a brain tumor was the most heartbreaking ever. Our next decision - to do it at home - was the easy part. Still, we had no idea it would be such a beautiful, peaceful and loving process. Dr. Shannon Cabell from Trenton, NJ was our own little gift - helping us get through the pain with patience, love, kindness and understanding. Even Ruby, who we believe knew why she was there, felt the love and compassion - and let Dr. Shannon do what she had to to get us all through. Though the grief is real and the tears unending - there are only sweet memories of our last hours together with Dr. Shannon by our sides. Thank you is hardly enough."Annie, Mark & Sophia GanguzzaBelmarNovember 7, 2018
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"We can't thank Dr. Shannon enough for being so kind and gentle with our sweet girl Pumpkin. Dr. Shannon explained everything to us and gave us all the time we needed to say good bye to our Pumpkin. We are forever grateful that Lap of Love exists and that you were able to help us with such a difficult decision. The fact that Pumpkin was able to be home on her bed meant the world to us. It is very obvious that Dr. Shannon has a big heart and is meant to be helping families with there fur babies. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts for being there for Pumpkin and us."Terri ZSouth RiverNovember 3, 2018Pumpkin's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Shannon Cabell"On October 24, 2018 our beloved Italian Greyhound Rocket Jensen passed. Our family had despaired over finding the right time and way to help Rocket end his struggle with liver disease. That morning we knew we had made the right choice in contacting Lap of Love services. Dr. Shannon Cabell came to our home at a very stressful time and helped us to transition Rocket in a peaceful, loving, and private way. Her caring nature allowed us to release Rocket with a feeling of calm we had not felt for weeks. I cannot thank her enough for helping my family through this time.

We Will Love You Always and Completely Rocket
