Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Bollinger"I seriously cannot say enough how incredibly thankful we are for this service. Especially during this pandemic not having the option to be present with our boy as he took his last breath at our primary vet just wasn’t an option. As heartbreaking as it was to say our goodbyes, my kitty went so peacefully in my home and we find comfort in how at peace he was through the entire experience. Dr. Bollinger was so kind and treated our boy as one of her own. She provided the utmost quality of care and compassion. Thank you Dr. Bollinger! Regardless of a pandemic, if I were to be faced with a tough choice like this again I wouldn’t choose any other way than Lap of Love."Aliecia DunnMaple GroveMay 21, 2020Cosmo's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kim Slade"On her favorite couch, on her favorite blanket, with the warm sun streaming down, and surrounded by her loving family was the way we said goodbye to our Tianella. What was the most difficult decision of our lives was made easier by the genuine and caring nature of Dr. Kim. She assured us that we were making the right decision and allowed all of us to be together this one last time. With respect and dignity, our girl crossed the Rainbow Bridge. When we look back on this moment, what we will remember is Dr. Kim and how she made the impossible bearable. Thank you."Nadine SicilianoWHIPPANYMay 21, 2020
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: Sarah Ryan, DVM"Dr. Sarah Ryan,
You made such a difference for Alice in her last moments with us. It takes a special person to do what you do and to be so gentle, thoughtful, and understanding of our feelings and of our dear dog Alice, too.
I would highly recommend your service for anyone who's pet is near end of life and suffering.
Alice was a big part of our family for 14 years. Thank you for helping us to honor her and give her peace and comfort in our own home.
We will never forget!
Sincerely,
Jane & son, Winfield Thomas"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Dawnetta Woodruff"On April 20th, 2020, we put our beloved, 17 year old dog, Skyler to sleep. For the last year or so, we had been closely monitoring Skyler's quality of life. We knew we wanted for Skyler to be put to sleep at home, where he was most comfortable. Our veternarian recommended Lap of Love. I looked up Lap of Love's website and immediately could tell they were going to be a great resource for us through the end of Skyler's life. I really benefited from their educational articles throughout the last year. The information they provided helped me know what to expect and things to keep in mind as we monitored Skyler. When we made the decision to put him to sleep, I felt very confident it was the best decision for Skyler. I did not want him to suffer. The Lap of Love coordinator I spoke with to schedule the appointment was very nice, friendly and professional. Our last day with Skyler was as perfect as it possibly could be. Dr. Dawnetta came to our house and she was so incredibly nice, patient and understanding. I never once felt rushed - in fact, she told us to take all the time we needed to say good-bye. The process went so smoothly. She handled Skyler afterwards with such softness and compassion. I felt like he was in caring hands when they left. About a week later, we received a hand-written card from Dr. Dawnetta in the mail. It was such a nice gesture and really helped to confirm we had chosen the absolute best care for Skyler through the very end. I can't express how thankful we are for the services and support Lap of Love provides. Thank you for everything!"Abbey IffrigEdwardsvilleMay 20, 2020

I highly recommend Lap of Love, as they are so very caring about what you will be going through. All the best to Dr. Jessica."Warren Van WieRestonMay 20, 2020Ginger Van Wie's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Roger Chase"Dr. Roger was very nice and professional. It was hard because we did not have a relationship with him like we did with our veterinarian, but we were happy that someone could make our dog pass peacefully at home. She did not suffer, in fact she never moved. He treated us with respect. This must be a hard job, but we are thankful that someone sees the importance of it."Claudia FruinSALT LAKE CITYMay 20, 2020Scarlett Jane's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Keely Smith"After 16 great years with my best friend, I had to make the hard decision to let her go. I wanted it to be under her tree in the back yard where she spent so many years of playing and relaxing. Without Dr. Keely, I wouldn’t have been able to give my Minimus this last gift of peace where she was comfortable. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to help me through it. She was so kind and gentle with my baby and me. She was an angel."Angelina DiTommassoSpring HillMay 20, 2020

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Bollinger"Letting our beloved dog Kamaro pass over was one of the most difficult times in our lives. We scheduled with Lap of Love and Dr Bollinger came to our home. This was the most peaceful, loving thing we could do for our retired K9 Kamaro. It was handled with dignity and grace, with all the respect for our beloved dog. Our dog's comfort was the highest priority and I couldn't be more happy/sad with the way we were able to hold him and talk to him while this happened. Thank you Dr Bollinger for allowing us to give him all the love we had in his last minutes, and making this process easier for our family."Sue BakerBrooklyn ParkMay 20, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Amy Czarnecki"Dr Amy was very compassionate and was a great relief in a time of sadness for our family. She has particularly helped my wife through this difficult time and for that I am grateful."Derek KeisterGreenwoodMay 20, 2020Bruno Keister's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kim Bruce"Dr Kim,
We can't express how much we value the service you provide. You did a spectacular job making a really difficult time as easy and peaceful as it could've been. Thank you so much for your compassion, condolences, and for the work you do. If there's a kitty god, he's definitely smiling on you.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lori Braun"I don't think I will ever go to a clinic again for euthanasia. The service you give is invaluable and gave closure instead of the feeling we could have done better. Anyone who can do this should it is a completely different experience than being in a vet office. Much more personal and just overall better. My sweet boy Deej is in a better place and it was the best way it could have happened, in-home, with family, being held how he loved to be held. Again thank you!"Samantha MorganKeizerMay 20, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sierra Hedrick"My husband and I lost a major part of our family on Friday 5/15/2020 and could not have asked for a nicer or more peaceful experience. It was the hardest decision that we have ever made and Dr. Sierra helped us give our Lola her wings. She was kind, compassionate, and answered all of our questions. We are so thankful that she was able to assist us and was so understanding of our feelings. She reassured us that we made the right decision when we had mixed feelings and made sure that we were comfortable with everything that was happening. Her communication was extremely thorough and advised us of what we should expect throughout the entire process. If we ever have to go through this again, we will definitely be using Lap of Love because of the very peaceful, private, and intimate care that was provided in our home."Tina DesormierMonessenMay 19, 2020Lola's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elizabeth Gill"We can’t say enough about Lap of Love and our Vet, Dr Elizabeth that came out to help us with our sweet Harley. Dr Elizabeth was so gentle and compassionate with both our baby and our family. She was kind and patient with us and yet professional, we knew that Harley was in great care and that we could just concentrate and love on him. You were recommended to us and we will do the same in the future. Thank you from our family"Suzanne SeamonWinter GardenMay 19, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Rachel Klickman"I have been faced with saying good bye to my dogs over many years. This time I decided to let Snoopie go be with her friends in heaven from home. Dr. Rachel was so wonderful and patient. Sharing her Veterinary knowledge and experience she reassured me this was the right time since Snoopie only had days to live. She treated Snoopie like family and she was incredibly kind to me giving all the time I needed to say good bye. Snoopie was calm and at peace the entire time. Truly a wonderful gift. This was a much better experience than in the Veterinary Clinic. I would also like to thank Amanda who handled setting up the appointment. She was also exceptionally kind and thoughtful when explaining everything. My heart is filled with appreciation. Thank you."susan carterBowieMay 19, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Mary Kovach"Dr Mary was so kind and patient. She let me give Gabe 2 triple chocolate muffins, one before procedure and Doug gave him a second one while being sedated. She kept telling us we could take our time, don't hurry and embrace the moments. She was a blessing to a torn up family. Thank you Dr Mary."Donna LawlisCambyMay 19, 2020Gabriel's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Amy Parrish"I could not be happier with the whole process of Lap of Love and would recommend their services for anyone during this heart breaking time. Dr. Amy was so compassionate and caring. She explained everything and was kind and we never felt rushed.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elyse Persico"When we had to make the quick decision to let my Molli go, everyone we encountered at Lap Of Love was very kind and supportive. Dr. Elyse showed up and treated Molli as if she had been her veterinarian for her entire 14 years of life. She explained everything that was going to happen very thoroughly and made sure that we did not have any questions go unanswered. She asked about our history with Molli, taking the time to get to know our beloved pet and us as a family. I could not have asked for a better person to help me say goodbye to my best friend. She helped me wrap her up in her favorite blanket, with her favorite toy and I was able to carry her to the car to say my final goodbye. I would not have wanted it any other way. I am forever thankful for having met Dr. Elyse under the circumstances and cannot thank her enough for treating my baby with the utmost love and respect."Lorin HerbickHamptonMay 19, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Nil Wilkins"The first step was the phone call. As hard as that was Nicole was so sweet and understanding. I wasn’t sure how she even understood what I was saying from crying so much. She was patient and kind and got me scheduled. When Dr. Wilkins came to the house she was so warm and caring. She made sure I understood what was going to happen and never rushed. Always thoughtful to make sure that Buddy was ok and never in pain. I would highly recommend this wonderful place to everyone dealing with the hardest decision to put an animal down. The caring and thoughtfulness was amazing!!! It was the first time I ever had to do this so I really didn’t know what to expect but having someone with the compassion Dr. Wilkins has made it a lot less stressful.
Thank you so very much for your time, compassion, and caring to get me through the hardest day !!!"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Liz Myers"I can not say enough amazing things about Dr. Liz. She came into our lives when our family needed it most and made sure we could send Bubba out as comfortable as possible. For my family and I this was the first time most of us had ever had to put their pet down. Dr. Liz not only talked us through the whole process but she assured us that she would treat him as if he were her own puppy. We also appreciate that she took him out in a beautiful basket and blanket to make him look comfortable on his way out of the home. Many of my friends have senior dogs and I have been telling them that although this was a sad occasion I felt like it was beautiful to let our pup pass in the comfort of his own home with his family by his side. If I ever have to go through the hard decision of sending my furry friend over the rainbow bridge again I will definitely be calling Lap of Love and hopefully will get to see Dr. Myers or any of the wonderful staff who made this experience easier than expected."Maggie HempelNiagara FallsMay 19, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jennie Brindler"This was the 2nd time that Dr. Jennie assisted us in saying good bye to our lovely cats. She is so wonderful and I highly recommend her. She is compassionate, knowledgeable, and patient. She explained every step and gave us as much time as we needed with our babies. I immediately felt comfortable with her and am so thankful for her assistance."Erin TousleyCommerce CityMay 19, 2020Jem's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Allie Prokop"Dr.Allie’s level of professionalism and true courtesy were fantastic, I could tell she was truly sorry for us but she kept her composure and was able to allow us to let Tazz have a peaceful transition."Nicholas PerryKodakMay 19, 2020Tazz's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kimberly Carper"Dr. Carper was very nice, patient and compassionate. Didn't rush the process and spent some time with my Angel before we started the procedure. Would highly recommend her if you are unable to have this done with your direct vet. Although this was an alternative to having my personal vet do this, she was kind, caring and she made me feel better about the whole thing."Wendy LanierManorMay 19, 2020Jezabell's Pet Memorial
