Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
5/2/2006 - 1/1/2020Jane found us at 6 weeks old and merged into our family instantly. She had a huge following and a tremendous fan club. She loved convertible rides, cook outs on the grill, weekend trips to Islamorada Keys and patrolling her backyard. She cheered on FSU football as we watched on tv. She even got to see the Cubs win their first World Series in 108 years. Most importantly she loved her mommy and daddy every minute of her life. As Jane crossed over The Rainbow Bridge we assured her that she will have her eyesight back. Jane taught us all unconditional adoration.Leslie CurtsCoconut Creek, FloridaJanuary 2, 2020
1/9/2008 - 11/8/2019Buster, it is hard to remember a time before you were in my life, and after two months, I still can't believe you are gone. You were never a regular dog. You had more personality than many people I know; you were truly the best companion no matter what we were doing, from napping to car rides to the beach to Civil War battlefields to visiting kids in the hospital. We were truly a perfect match, and your absence is breaking my heart more than I could have imagined. Looking back through pictures, I can see how you weren't yourself the last few years, but you hung on for 18 months in the face of brain cancer because you knew we needed you. Thank you for picking me, thank you for staying with us even when you couldn't do all the things you loved, thank you for taking care of us and being my best friend. I hope I made you as happy as you made me.Alexis KBPhiladelphia, PennsylvaniaJanuary 2, 2020
6/5/2007 - 12/26/2019My sweet Apple will forever be missed. She was one of the biggest blessings ever in my life and gave me more than I could have ever imagined. God brought her to me at just the right time and for the exact right season.

The countless before and after work walks all over DC, the thousands of nights keeping me warm under my blanket or watching tv with me; Apple made me a better person and was a dream come true for me. There were so many years without family near by and it was just me and Apple. I am so glad she was able to end her life surrounded by a new dad and her devoted grandpa.

A day will not go by that I won't miss her terribly.

2/14/2010 - 12/31/2020I loved you Sobe more than anything in this world... I knew the best thing to do was to let you go because of all the pain the cancer was causing you. It was the hardest choice I ever had to make. I hope you are playing with other dogs and still chasing cats. I look for you in your favorite spots but you are not there. I wish I had another choice, I would do anything to bring you back! I loved you so very much! I miss you!Sobe FioreSt.Augustine, FloridaJanuary 2, 2020
11/24/2003 - 12/23/2019When i rescued April she was approximately 1 1/2 years old. She was scared and it seemed that she may have been abused by the way she acted. After she warmed up to our family, (humans and other fur babies) she was very happy. She could climb and jump things that you wouldn't believe she would be able to do. She was a hunter, always bringing critters in through the doggie door. She brought in at least a dozen possums, birds, bunnies, voles and a neighbors homing pigeon. She didn't kill or hurt them, she just wanted to play with them. She loved to sleep under the blankets with us. She was extremely sweet and sassy at the same time. She loved to have as much attention as she could get. Loved belly rubs and if you stopped she would let you know that you weren't done yet. She loved playing with her toys and her brother. She followed me around and always wanted to be near me. Throughout her life she had several medical issues. She had an anal gland removed, a toe amputated due to cancer. She was diagnosed with 2 types of cancer at age 11. She had too much life in her for me to let her go, so we did the chemotherapy rounds which she handled like a champ. It didn't slow her down at all. This past January at the age of 15 she was again diagnosed with cancer. 1/2 of her bladder was removed and her spleen was removed. They wanted to do chemo again, but at her age i did not want to put her through that. She was getting along fine, still having small spurts of running energy. Jumping up was getting hard and she was no longer able to do it. In November she turned 16 and was doing ok. Then the 2nd week of December she couldn't get up on her feet from a laying position and when she would lay down she would whimper. I knew now that after so many years of her being the daughter i never had and comforting me with snuggles and kisses that it was my turn to put her at ease and out of pain. This is a pain that i will never forget and will miss her each day. April you provided me with so many years of unconditional love and still gave me kisses when we said goodbye. I will always love you and will see you again. Rest peacefully my sweet sweet girl. I love you, mommyMichelle ThurmanSt Louis, MissouriJanuary 2, 2020
3/22/2006 - 12/29/2019Holly, our protector, our constant presence, the one who loved without condition. It was an honor that you picked us to be your companion. Your daily presence made life that much more worth living. You greeted us when we came home from work every day and made us happy no matter how badly things had gone. Your walks made us healthier and always kept us on our toes as we walked through the woods. Every evening, you watched TV with us, even though you might have not liked the show, you laid by the fire on cold nights, rolling over on your back, expecting belly rubs. You obediently went outside before bed and “did your thing” knowing that you wouldn’t go out before morning. You always slept in on our days off, being considerate of our sleep, always between us, snoring. You were a happy soul and changed the way all of our friends thought of pit bulls by being as loving to adults and children alike. We love you sweet pea and you have left a hole in our hearts but we have memories of your kind, brave heart. Be at peace over the rainbow and know that we will forever love you.Jeff and Sharon AllinsonVienna, VirginiaJanuary 1, 2020
Lulu Torres
12/21/2010 - 12/28/2019Lulu was a strong-willed pittie with so much love to give. She was sweet and easygoing once we realized what she liked and what she did not permit. She loved laying in the sun and snuggling up to us. She loved her treats especially when playing games like hide-and-seek. When it was time to eat, she never hesitated to remind us.

We got Lulu and her brother Tucker as puppies. She was the smallest of the pack and had the brightest blue eyes. She snuggled up to us as if coaxing us to take her home. In puppy school, she was very well behaved, one of the best in fact, that the trainer placed her with the worst puppy in the group so that Lulu might help the other puppy to be better trained.

She had frequent doctor visits throughout her life and always loved the medical staff caring for her. Lulu was always getting compliments for her compliance. She would walk in with her butt swaying and cheeks blushed, knowing she would get tender loving care. We always wondered if she knew everyone was there to help her.

My favorite memory of Lulu would be her dramatic facial expressions. Her eyebrows would move with such emotion! She had such an amazing personality. She stole my heart from the beginning and will be truly missed.

1/7/2020 - 12/31/2019You were the leader of our pack. Our first, and our oldest. You loved without measure! The emptiness we now feel shows us JUST HOW BIG A ROLE you played in our lives. Rest now sweet Angel. We will see you again one day, WE WILL see you again!!Dakota AlmazanLas Vegas, NevadaJanuary 1, 2020
5/30/2005 - 12/28/2019Miss you Cammie. Raven and I are lonely taking our walks without you; and the house is just a little too quiet without you. The children will miss you at the libraries where you listened to them so lovingly and patiently. Raven has some pretty big pawprints to fill now. You led me to my favorite hobby of doing pet therapy. I'll really miss your sweet, sweet personality. Rest in peace, sweetheart.Nancy MurrayMcLean, VirginiaJanuary 1, 2020
6/1/2004 - 12/30/2019I first met Sherlock at the Humane Society of Marin County. When I opened the door to his cage, he stepped into my arms and placed each paw on either side of my neck and nuzzled me. That was the deciding factor. I said, "You know, you are coming home with me." At that time he was 1 year old and an 18-pound Maine Coon cat.

They say that Maine Coons are the "dogs of the cat world;" this is an accurate statement. Sherlock followed me around the house like a dog, greeted me every night at the front door when I returned from work, stuck his nose in the refrigerator to see if there was food that he liked. He traveled to the Midwest and back to the Golden State with me twice; we stayed in pet friendly hotels. We saw the plains, the mountains, and the deserts together. We saw snowstorms and black ice and experienced the hot sun of Arizona. Sherlock comforted me when I was sick or depressed; he loved me unconditionally. He loved dogs and other cats; he was a natural caretaker to me and other creatures.
