Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"Dear Jenn,

We so appreciate your email. I’ve intentionally saved it in my inbox until now as I’ve enjoyed being reminded of it multiple times through yesterday and today. I’ve read it at least 15 times and will file it away to read over the years.

Yesterday and the days leading up to it were a bit of a roller coaster, but I want you to know that while there were some sad moments here and there, most of what we experienced were joyful and happy moments reflecting back on all of the wonderful memories that we have of Bailey. We talked specifically about how fortunate we were to have you and everyone at Lap of Love by our side as we navigated this process; without you then we doubt that the one year anniversary of Bailey’s passing would have been joyful at all. The support that we received from you during Bailey’s sunset phase provided the foundation for us to feel good and confident in all of the ways that spent our time together leading up to his passing, in the decisions that we made, and the timing of those decisions.

We are so impressed with how you and your organization operates. You all are a very well-oiled machine and it shows up in wonderful ways.

Thank you for your email. It was really nice to receive and to know that you were thinking of us.

Warmly,
Boyd and Christy"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"Thank you so much for the kind email. It's been a rough 24 hours, but I feel better knowing that Loki is at peace, and that he had a stress-free transition. You made the process so much easier than it could have been, and I really appreciate your kindness to me and gentleness with Loki. It certainly won't be forgotten. You provide an amazing service in the community."Michelle LosardoBelmontOctober 12, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"Euthanasia is hard no matter what, but the process was made easier by Dr. Walters. She was able to come to my home on 24 hours notice and help my Loki cross over. From the moment I met her I could feel her kindness and compassion. She didn't rush me through anything and performed everything with care for me and Loki. She even entertained the playfulness of my other resident cat who wanted to be part of the process. I was so grateful for the way she handled Loki, and gave him proper dignity as he passed. I know that Loki was in the best of hands. I would not hesitate to use Lap of Love again in the future when needed. Thank you so much for the kindness."Michelle LoSardoBelmontOctober 11, 2019Loki's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"Doctor Jennifer was so gracious and kind! Her goodness is so apparent as she helps you through this process. It is such a sad moment, but the gentle way in which Doctor Jennifer worked with my precious Betsy and myself was and is so important. These are the last moments on earth for our sweet babies. They deserve to go in peace and comfort. So, thank you, Doctor Jennifer for supporting Betsy and myself as Betsy found her was to Rainbow Bridge! You are truly a blessing!"Jill TrexlerConcordSeptember 23, 2019Betsy's Pet Memorial

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"Having to make the decision to share the final act of love with my sweet Daisy was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. I knew I wanted to have someone come to our home, and our vet's office recommended that we reach out to Laps of Love. Dr. Jennifer Walters is an absolutely amazing person, and this is clearly a calling for her. What I was anticipating to be a horrible and sad process was difficult, but actually very peaceful and quite frankly, very beautiful. From the caring nature of Courtney when we made the appointment, to Dr. Jenn coming to our home, and her amazing, comforting, professional way as she journeyed along side us through the entire process - I felt that we were gifted with comfort and surrounded by people who helped us love Daisy until her last moment before going to the Rainbow Bridge. There are so many little "extras" that they have thought of that made the difficult experience a positive one. It might seem silly, but I was so anxious about how we would take Daisy out of the house. Dr. Jenn brought a wicker basket with a lovely blanket, and positioned Daisy so that it looked like she was snuggled up and sleeping. A simple thing, but it left an image in my mind that is calm and comforting. I received follow up calls and emails, and a lovely card from their team. While I would never wish anyone to have to use this services - inevitably if we love pets through their lives, we often come to this moment. When you do - I highly recommend that you contact Laps of Love and Dr. Jennifer Walters. I'm so thankful that I did."Meredith EllisorCharlotteSeptember 6, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"Lap of Love (NC) is a Godsend. This was my first in-home euthanasia and everything from my 1st inquiry to having my boy's ashes returned to me was perfection.

Dr. Jenn arrived promptly at the scheduled time and was very prepared. My sweet Jeb warmed up to her immediately. She responded with lots of scratches and rubs and my boy was very comfortable with her. Dr Jenn had such a calm demeanor and was very good at explaining each step.

With Jeb's declining health, his veins were very hard to locate but Dr Jenn persevered calming making sure Jeb was to sense any stress or discomfort. She was prepared with adequate doses of the required injections to handle my 135 lb baby. She was extremely focussed on making sure Jeb and I were prepared and in a good place.

The transition was very peaceful. It helped tremendously that my boy was dreaming big time while under the sedation. He was having a great dream, running and making his usual cute dream facial expressions. He was definitely in a fun place. It was so heart warming to see him like that before passing.

Dr. Jenn was also very helpful with assisting Faithful Companion with the transporting of my x-tra large boy. She ensured my boy be removed with the utmost dignity and care.

Thank you Dr. Jenn for the wonderful care of my boy, Jeb, during this difficult time. He left happy and at home - like most of us would want."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"We were happy to have been able to have been there to comfort Benji at the end, but we could not have done it without Dr Jennifer. She was very kind, and helped us through the process; with her resolve and assurance we were able to remain strong for Benji's sake."Basil BabaaCharlotteAugust 29, 2019Benji's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"Dr. Walters was very compassionate and as gentle as possible with Jake. She let us have our time, and took her time with him, sitting on the floor with us as Jake rested in my lap. Dr. Walters and Lap of Love erased the greatest dread of my heart - which was the fear of having to return to our veterinarian’s clinic once again, which Jake became extremely nervous and fearful of even when we came into the parking lot. Jake was able to be at home surrounded with his brother, me and all his comfy beds and pillows while he nibbled on his favorite - a hamburger patty. It was not easy in the least, but so much better than being in the sterile environment of a clinic on a cold stainless steel table."Janie JonesCharlotteAugust 25, 2019Jake's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"Dr. Jen was professional, caring, and patient. She showed Buddy the utmost respect and helped us through an extremely sad and difficult experience. We are so happy we went with Lap of Love and could complete the process without bringing on any further anxiety for our dog. We know he is now at peace. We would highly recommend Dr. Jen."Rebecca GrgurinaCharlotteAugust 18, 2019Buddy's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Rachel Cain"Dr. Cain was our saving grace. We knew we would need to make the difficult decision to bring peace to his suffering when he was diagnosed with bone cancer 3 months prior. Amputation was our first step to eradicate the pain, but the aggressive nature of this horrible disease would soon attack other areas of our guy's body. We held on as long as we could but when the time came to move forward with our "final gift" Lap of Love and Rachel Cain were there to help us. Dr. Cain made arrangements to arrive within hours of our request and was there when we needed her. We feel that Knox knew she was there to help him ... he shared kisses with her when she arrived and even wagged his tail- something we hadn't seen in over a week due to his growing paralysis. She was calm, comforting, informative and performed the procedure without fault. We will forever be grateful for the peaceful goodbye provided us by Dr. Cain."Trevor EzellWaxhawAugust 10, 2019Knox's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"Like she was with our last kitty we had to let go, Dr. Jennifer brought the same calm, peace, & compassion with her into our home when she came again to help set our Angel free from a failing body this past weekend. I don't know that I can find the right words to express just how much it means to be able to give that one final gift to our ailing fur baby in the place where "they" feel most comfortable.....at home surrounded by those who love them dearly. What Dr. Jennifer, and all who are part of Lap of Love, give is a gift that is truly priceless."Patty L.MonroeJuly 31, 2019Angel's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"Dr. Walters visited our home again this year, about one year from our first experience with Lap of Love, and provided the exact same compassionate and loving transition for our little old lady pup that she did for our first experience with our kitty. We're so grateful we can rely on Dr. Walters and Lap of Love to help make the best of a difficult situation. Our Lucy and our Molly were both treated with the highest level of dignity and respect, with most compassionate of manners as can be hoped for."Rebecca DornCharlotteJuly 26, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Rachel Cain"Making the decision to end Shadow's suffering was one of the hardest things we have ever had to do. Shadow became very stressed toward the end of her life about getting into and out of the car, so we did not want her to be more stressed on her way to the vet if we put her down there. Fortunately, our vet informed us about Lap of Love, so I reached out to them late on a Sunday night, and their vet was at our house by 5:00 the next day. Dr. Rachel was amazing. She is such a special person and made Shadow and us feel so comforted. You can tell she truly cares about her patients and their families. She customized the dosage to Shadow's needs and walked us through each step of the process and told us exactly what we could expect. She gave us options on certain things to help it be most comfortable for us too. By 5:00 the next day, we already had Shadow's ashes back in a beautiful box. When you have to make this painful decision for your pet, Lap of Love is the best possible option for your pet and your family. They were so caring and professional and I would highly recommend them to anyone going through this situation."Anne ColeyHarrisburgJuly 25, 2019Shadow's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"Dr. Jenn was absolutely wonderful. This was our first experience with Lap of Love. She was so kind and attentive to not only Riley's needs but our emotional needs as well. She answered all our questions and then some. The respect for our beloved pet and us as his family was evident, and felt so strongly. We highly recommend Lap of Love and Dr. Jenn. The process was validating and as comfortable as possible. Very seamless. They made a very difficult circumstance so much easier. Thank you!"MatthewsJuly 24, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"It has been a year since I lost my fur baby Foster. Deciding to put him to rest was the hardest decision I have ever made. But, the experience (although absolutely heartbreaking) was so peaceful. My kitty was 15. He always got agitated going in his carrier- let alone heading to the Vet. So when he went into heart failure, the last thing I wanted to do was make him more uncomfortable and cause him stress. I decided to call Lap of Love. Dr. Jenn came the next day. She was soft-spoken, kind and comforting. She let me know what to expect. And as I held my little guy, she helped him take the journey over the rainbow bridge. Foster was comfortable the entire time. He lived his last moments in his home with his mom. And, I can't thank Dr. Jenn for making that the last memory I have of him- peaceful.
I highly recommend this experience for you and your pet's final moments. For a moment I don't really want to remember, it was an experience I will never forget. I can't be more thankful for providing us the right ending for my fluffy baby."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"We sincerely appreciated Dr. Jennifer's warm bedside manner and candor in one of the roughest days of our lives. The procedure she provided was the greatest final gift we could have ever given to Lucky, as excruciatingly emotional as it was to follow through with. I speak for all my family and friends that had the privilege of knowing and loving Lucky when I say thank you for aiding in Lucky's transition from this life to the next. People like Dr. Jennifer make the world a much better place providing the care that they do for our beloved pets."Zachary WeirMooresvilleJune 5, 2019Lucky's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"Sending Buddy Home was the hardest thing we have ever done. Should we? Shouldn't we? The thought of taking him to the vet made us weep...we wanted him to leave his beloved home peacefully, surrounded by those who love him...both us and his fellow 4-legged friends. With a friend's recommendation we contacted Lap of Love and from the moment they contacted us, we knew we would be in safe, loving hands. Their concern for us and for Buddy gave us such peace that we were making the right decision. Dr Walters was a gentle, kind, spirit in the midst of our grief and with her help we sent Buddy home peacefully. We are so very thankful for her and the gift she gave us. I do want to say one thing about the cost...yes, it is more than a vet charge, and that at first intimidated us. But you can't put a price on peace and love...familiarity and family. Thanks to Lap of Love, we can now look back on that day with gratefulness and thanksgiving...for the 15 years we were loved by Buddy, and for tender way Lap of Love allowed us to make his Home-going the very best it could be."Arlene TenczaWaxhawJune 4, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennifer Walters"Handsome, patient, resilient, and quite the “ladies man”. Aiden was the quintessential Chocolate Lab, with a mighty spirit that was never crushed. Last week, Lap of Love helped him gain his angel wings, and they were honored to assist a dog of his measure. He was a puppy when he became a survivor-dog of Hurricane Katrina, he lived through a horrendous ACL tear, and he was a U.S. nomad; traveling from New Orleans to Buffalo, and finally Charlotte. He loved camping, chasing tail, his family (especially his dad Paul) and food. Boy did he love his meals! We were fortunate enough to have had him for 14 years, but it was still way too soon for a dog with such heart. We miss you Aiden. Home just isn’t the same without you. Forever in our hearts 5.17.19❤️
Thank you Dr. Walters for making this process a beautiful transformation for our Aiden. We are so grateful for your services."
