Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Melanie Santspree"I am so thankful we found Lap of Love to help with the passing of our beloved dog, Brutus. Being able to accomplish this most difficult situation in the privacy of our own home, where he was always most comfortable, was the final gift of love we could have given our pet. Dr. Melanie was one of the most compassionate, understanding people I've ever met. We will be forever grateful to her and this wonderful organization."Sandra AustinSaratoga SpringsJanuary 31, 2020

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kiley Cameron"I can not thank Dr. Kiley enough for how wonderfully she did taking care of my family and my furry baby on his last day. She entered my home in not only a professional but caring manner that made us feel at ease. I can't imagine calling someone else besides her if I am ever in need again. If you are thinking about calling her, please do. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am so thankful my family had her with us during such a hard time. She is truly amazing. If she does ever read this, thank you Dr. Kiley."Tricia BednarczykMechanicsvilleJanuary 31, 2020

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Will Basinger"It was a horrible time for us as I realized my MyaRose needed to go home. She was in so much pain and unable to move., so scaring her by trying to load her up and taking her to a vet's office she had never been to was overwhelming. But I found Laps of love and Dr Will, Dr Will came in his off time to help us . I will never be able to thank him for his compassion and caring. He made one of the worst days of my life bearable. Mya just slipped away to go to Jesus to be healed. Dr Will was just wonderful, he did not just care for Mya, he cared for all."Mary SaltersWest ColumbiaJanuary 30, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kara Fuchs"I'm extremely grateful for Dr. Fuchs and the whole Lap of Love staff. Losing my beloved Emmy Lou after 15 years of companionship was unbearably difficult. She was so sick at the end, there was no way I was going to traumatize her by putting her in a carrier and bringing her to a clinic in her final moments. She was able to be in her quiet home, surrounded by her family, with her favorite cozy blanket and peacefully drift off without any fear. Dr. Fuchs was so kind and gentle with all of us and made us feel so much better about the entire experience. I could not recommend her more highly. The staff was also extremely accommodating when I had to change my appointment date."Shauna OBrienMinneapolisJanuary 30, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sierra Hedrick"It was hard to imagine that I would be contacting Lap of Love so soon after my sister and I laid Bailey Sue to rest. It was just 10 days. But once again, Lap of Love treated me like royalty when I had to make that call for Zeus. His back legs were getting worse and he was having a difficult time walking and staying standing up. He began to show more signs of being in distress. I was so thankful to learn that Dr. Sierra was the one who came for Zeus. She couldn't believe that she was making another visit to our home so soon. But, once again, she reassured me that I was making the right decision for Zeus as she saw his signs as well. She was so wonderful and passionate and patient, especially when I asked to wait for my son to arrive so he could say his goodbye. Thank you Lap of Love and Dr. Sierra for your kindness and compassion during my most difficult time. As always, you are all angel blessings!"Shelly DeGroffNorth VersaillesJanuary 30, 2020Zeus's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Hampton"Lap of Love was a God send! They were so compassionate and professional from the moment I called them unit the very end. Dr. Christina was patient, kind and caring especially given the heartbreaking situation we were in. My Vet recommended Lap of Love due to the lack of mobility and anxiety a visit to the Vet caused my Scout so they felt this would be the best option for him. I would highly recommend Dr. Christina and Lap of Love to anyone facing the end of their pet's life."Jan AdamsHolly SpringsJanuary 30, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi"Dr. Heather was very kind, caring and patient with our family. She waited for my son, daughter-in-law and two 10 year old twin granddaughters to arrive at our home to say their last goodbyes to their beloved "Teddy." Our sweet wonderful boy. a mini golden doodle was 13 years old and was suffering with Cancer. It was time for him to leave us, and it was very hard for all of us to let him go, especially for my granddaughters who grew-up with him since they were infants. He was their protector and best friend. Dr. Heather's compassion for our family made the experience so much easier to bear at home. We will never be able to thank
Dr. Heather enough for enabling us to let go of Teddy after giving him his last hugs and kisses. He will always be remembered as our best boy, our beloved "Teddy Bear.""

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Regan Harp"Sorry it has taken so long to leave this message. Back in December, our sweet doggie, Copper , let us know that she couldn’t stay with us any longer, so we called Dr. Harp, and he came to our home a couple of weeks before Christmas. He was so gentle and soft spoken, and he loved on and petted Copper, just like we were doing! Copper ate Cheeseburgers and vanilla soft serve and went to sleep, with all of us petting her and telling her how much we loved her. On a very sad day, Dr. Harp was a calming and caring presence for ALL of us! Thank you, Dr. Harp! Love and Peace"Debbie GolemonMadisonJanuary 30, 2020

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Allie Prokop"Dr. Allie was truly amazing. Today, I euthanized our first, and beloved cat, Riley. It honestly was one of the toughest things I have had to do since the passing of my mom. This was also my first time euthanizing a pet by myself and like a lot people, I take death very hard. Our animals mean the entire world to myself and my husband and their care/health is always number one to us. Unsure of what to do, we reached out to Lap of Love so Riley could pass at home with his brothers and sisters around him. Dr. Allie was one of the most companionate people and made this process “less stressful” for both Riley and myself. I am so happy we chose this route and Dr. Allie. Thank you SO MUCH. You are greatly appreciated and just know you make a HUGE difference in this world!"Athena ShepardWallandJanuary 29, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi"I cannot express enough gratitude to Lap of Love and Dr. Manfredi for helping my family and I make the best decision for our best buddy, Rocky. We were able to give him peace and comfort in our home, and were able to spend his last time with us in calm and beautiful way. It would not have been possible without the care and compassion that Dr. Manfredi provides. We are forever grateful. Thank you."Nicole WoodCommackJanuary 29, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Keri Morgan"Dr. Keri Morgan was everything we could have asked for at a very difficult time. She was professional, empathetic and reassuring. Our 15 year old daughter was doubting our family decision to let our 14 year old chihuahua Abby go. Abby had been losing weight and going downhill over the last week and was noticeably "not herself" yesterday morning. We suspected that she was in pain and didn't want her to suffer anymore. Dr. Keri examined Abby and reassured us that it was time and we were being merciful in allowing Abby to "skip over her hardest days". She was patient with us and listened. We received an email from her last evening and she wrote a little memorial for our beloved pet. I would highly recommend the services of Lap of Love to anyone who is allowed the time to make this decision for their dying furry family member."Abby CraterChesterfieldJanuary 29, 2020
