Lap of Love Veterinarian: Julie Zalenka"Dr. Julie,
Thank you so much for your compassion in our family's time of need. While it was so unbelievably difficult for us, you were able to give our Sammy the gift of peace. Because of you, he got to pass away peacefully at home, in his own bed surrounded by his loved ones. We are grateful to you for taking away his pain and suffering. Sammy is finally at peace now."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Julie Zalenka"Little did we realize that the last Saturday in June would be the last time we would have the treasure of our beloved Titus to hold and care for. We were faced with the only way we could express our love for him in his time of severe distress. Just a short time ago he was all play and gleeful. Unfortunately he was diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy and despite our attempts to circumvent the inevitable, we called Lap of Love. They had been highly recommended by a friend, who had endured the same need to say good bye to their pet. Calling them was the only bright moment in such a dark time for us. From the outset, they were absolutely the kindest and most respectful group we could have hoped for. Their set up staff, contact staff, and Veterinarian were all just wonderful. It certainly went a long way in helping us cope with the situation. Our interaction with Dr. Julie became very personal and I will not recant it here. She was amazing, thoughtful, professional and as I said had the persona to immediately become part of our home and the process we had to engage in. We will be forever thankful to her and I would never think of having this enormous challenge of saying good bye to our Titus end with such a calm, serene, respectful, and touching memory that we now have. Thank you Dr. Julie and your staff ......... forevermore!"Richard Ralyea2016July 8, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Steven Schultz"Our family is so grateful to Dr. Schultz and the Lap of Love program. Our dog was unable to walk and in pain. Having a Veterinarian come to your home where your pet can peacefully be put to rest in his own environment is so much easier. Dr. Schultz was very kind, yet matter of fact. He provided an exam, his professional advice, and assurance that we were making the right decision as our pet was in severe pain. Due to our pets age we couldn't put him through numerous tests just to give ourselves more time with him as his quality of life was already so poor. Dr. Schultz was very thorough in explaining the process and allowed us to take our time in going through one of the hardest days our family has endured. We our grateful to Dr.Schultz and we highly recommend Lap of Love if you are experiencing a similar situation."Candace FulfordLockportMay 31, 2019Moose's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Steven Schultz"Dr. Schultz was amazing. He showed such compassion and patience through this whole process. He provided us with Rambo’s footprint and followed up with us to offer an ear to listen afterwards. He took such care wrapping Rambo in a warm blanket and treated him with such dignity. I can’t thank him enough for allowing my best friend to pass peacefully at home with his family where he belonged."Holli BockClarence CenterMarch 7, 2019Rambo's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Steven Schultz"We met Dr. Schultz under very sad circumstances. He came to our home to assist us with saying farewell to our wonderful cat Jibs. He could not have been more understanding, patient, and kind through the whole process. He explained everything that would happen. He took his time and we never felt rushed . He made me feel confident we were making the right choice to help Jibs be at peace. If and when the time comes that we have to go through this process again, there would be no question in my mind that we would choose Dr. Schultz and Lap of Love to help us see it through . This is an amazing organization filled with loving, caring people. Thank you so much."Tracey PiciGrand IslandJanuary 25, 2019Jibs's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Steven Schultz"Dr. Steve, Your love for animals and your kindness to others allowed us to experience Derringer's passing with respect, kindness, and faith. You coached us through the process and helped us during a very emotional time. The service Lap of Love provides is one of passion, love, understanding, and commitment to quality of life. As Derringer got sick and the realization of losing him was presented to us we feared taking him to the vet. He was timid and afraid whenever we took him and we did not want him to have that experience during the end of life.
Lap of love allowed us to say goodbye in our home with love, tears and compassion.
Thank you Dr. Steven and everyone at Lap of Love for what you do. GOD bless all of you for your service to the pet community.
Bonnie"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Steven Schultz"On Monday, January 14, 2019 we unfortunately had to make the very hard decision to put our precious sweet dog, Luca, to rest. We learned about Lap of Love through the veterinary office when it was clear that Luca was not improving. Dr. Steven made a special visit on his day off so that Luca would not suffer another day. We did not want to take him to the Vet because he hated going there and we did not want that to be his last memory. Dr. Steven was very kind and compassionate and I was comforted knowing that I was able to sit by Luca and comfort him in his last moments. Luca gave us a wonderful 8 almost 9 years and fell ill well before his time. He was the perfect pet and he will be missed everyday. Thanks to Lap of Love his last memory is being with his family, in his home, in his bed. We will forever be grateful. Thank you."Joelyn QuiglianoWheatfieldJanuary 16, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Steven Schultz"The agonizing pain that accompanied the decision to euthanize my beloved black lab, Freddie, was compassionately eased by Dr. Steven Schultz.
He gently guided him to a place where people food is on the menu, all the cars are convertibles, and everyone is allowed on the furniture.
Thank you, Dr. Schultz. Your calm and patient presence gave me the confidence to put Fred's comfort before my own.
RIP Freddie 11/19/2004 - 1/7/2019"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Steven Schultz"Dr. Steven came to our home yesterday and helped our baby cross the rainbow bridge. It's such a difficult time and especially hard during the holidays but the kindness and caring shown by Dr. Steven and the Lap of Love organization made it a much more easier process. Our beloved Sunny was so comfortable and in no pain whatsoever. It was the best experience for both our cat and myself. He will forever be missed, the forever bed making interrupter, treat stealing from his siblings, Christmas Tree lover, Christmas Village destroyer, always entertaining and best companion ever.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Steven Schultz"In response to our need, Dr. Steven came to us with short notice on a snowy day to help us give Romeo his peaceful rest.
He was wonderful to all of us and he was particularly sensitive to the feelings of my adult daughter and my 9 year old granddaughter, both so attached to Romeo, as we all were. We are very thankful to Dr. Steven for all that he did."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Steven Schultz"Words cannot explain what Dr. Steven and his experience, support and obvious love of animals meant to us. Although over the years we have had to say goodbye to beloved pets, this process of being in our home with the gentle ease of saying good bye along with Dr. Steven's quiet strength of knowlege made an unbearable situation, a loving kind act.

We cannot help but to be grateful for the 14 years we had with our Graham Cracker. We cannot help but to be grateful for Dr. Steven. This is obviously a lifes work for him, not a job and that makes a world of difference for any of us who hold our pets so dear.

So very thankful!"
