Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Betsy King"I cannot recommend this service highly enough. Losing my sweet girl at 8.5 was the most awful thing ever and at first I was scared to have this process done at home. But it was so much better for my Sabra. She was relaxed and happy and really loved Dr. Betsy. I know this time will come again one day, and I will be using Lap of Love again when that day comes. Please consider this service as opposed to bringing your baby into the vet. It's so much more peaceful for them and it really is a beautiful process during a time when nothing seems beautiful at all. Thank you, Dr. Betsy, for your kindness during this whole process."Samantha ChauveauChapel HillFebruary 18, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Elyse Persico"Dr. Elyse was just the person we needed. I’m so thankful to have chosen in home care with lap of love. She treated our Bella like her own. There was never a moment where we felt rushed. We decided to send our girl over the rainbow bridge. The entire experience was peaceful. I would recommend anyone in our area to utilize lap of love. A tragic time in our life was made a little easier with her care."Virginia BeachFebruary 18, 2020

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Heather Manfredi"When it was time to euthanize my cat, Vinnie, I knew that I wanted his last moments to be in his own home. Two co-workers and Vinnie's doctor recommended Lap of Love. I am so glad I took their advice.
Dr. Heather Manfredi could not have been more kind. There was no sense of urgency. She didn't rush into anything and took the time to explain how everything would happen. Dr. Heather even spent some time getting to know me!
After a few minutes of caution, Vinnie, who normally would run and hide from new visitors, came and laid down next to Dr. Heather's medical bag. In a way, I believe he was ready to say goodbye and when that time came he peacefully slipped away.
Vinnie was the best, most loving cat I'd ever had the privilege to be owned by. While I miss him terribly, I'll always be grateful to Dr. Heather and the Lap of Love ministry for making a difficult and heartbreaking decision easier to bear."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Caroline Kiert"Making the decision for my dear, sweet Lily was one of the most difficult I've ever had to face, and definitely not one I wanted to make, especially during the holiday season, but I didn't want my sweet girl to be sick anymore. I was referred to Lap of Love by a friend, who reassured me it was one of the best decisions he ever made. He was right. Dr. Kiert provided the care and comfort that Lily, myself and my husband needed that day, and I could not be more thankful for her presence, guidance and assistance through the process. Although putting my cat to sleep was a very sad decision, doing so in the comfort of her own home, surrounded by her parents, was the best present I could give her. I would not have done this any other way. Thank you so much, Dr. Kiert."Courtney Miller-EamesROSEVILLEFebruary 18, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kayla Stomack"It’s difficult to express how much Dr. Stomack helped me with Charlie.

Our experience was both sad and beautiful at the same time. We are so grateful that Max was at home with us and under your compassionate care. It was clear to me that you were chosen to do the work you do by a force that is greater than all of us. A calling that few can answer."

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Caroline Kiert"It's been 8 weeks since Dr Caroline helped us with our 18 year old chihuahua Emma. For one of the worst days of our lives, Dr Caroline made it warm and comforting. From the first person I talked to on the phone to talking to Dr Caroline the morning of her visit to the follow up emails from her, everything was handled with love, respect and compassion. We could not be more grateful. Dr Caroline never rushed us, she talked us through the whole process, she spent time getting to know Emma, finding out about our other dogs (past and current) and spent the needed time to make sure we were comfortable with the process. We even got to feed Emma chocolate while she was going to sleep (why not!)! Emma was so happy in her last moments and she fell peacefully into sleep in her dog bed on my lap. She was so comfortable, she was snoring. Dr Caroline thought of everything and we have no regrets whatsoever for doing this most difficult of things for our beloved little peanut. It was the hardest decision we ever had to make but we are comforted in knowing that we made the right choice at the right time with the right help from Dr Caroline. Thank you Dr Caroline for your compassion and warm-hearted approach!"Patricia ReiterEl Dorado HillsFebruary 17, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Christina Hampton"I can't thank Dr. Christina and Lap of Love enough for all their thoughtfulness and acts of tenderness as I said good by to my adorable Bentley. Saying good by to my sweet Bentley was so hard. In my heart I knew it was time to let him go as he was no longer the playful, goofy and loving boy he'd been for almost 17 years. I'm so thankful to Dr. Christina for coming to my home so that I could say good by to Bentley in the comfort of his home surrounded by his 2 Yorkie siblings. Thank you Dr. Christina and Lap of Love for helping me through one of the hardest days I've ever had. I'll always remember your many acts of kindness."Terry MullenaxDURHAM, NC 27713February 17, 2020
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Rachel Burns"Rachel was so amazing. It takes a special person to do what she does and be as supportive and caring as she is. I 100% feel I made the best choice for my baby and being able to do it at home in a special, familiar, and comfortable way means the world to us. I wouldn't have wanted to say goodnight to her anywhere else but home. We are so thankful for people and services like Lap of Love for giving us such a special experience during such a heartbreaking time. Holding Roxi in my arms on her bed in front of a fire as she went to sleep will be something I will remember and cherish forever. Thank you so very much for everything."Noel TufanoMeridenFebruary 17, 2020Roxi's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Rachel Burns"Although we've experienced the loss of a pet before, this was by far the most peaceful, loving passing we've been a part of and we thank Dr. Rachel for the most positive experience to a heartbreaking situation. She had warmth, compassion and a light-hearted touch that allowed us to laugh and cry during the experience. I've been replaying our girl Zoe's last moments over and over in my head and I'm so thankful that they are peaceful - almost beautiful - memories and we are forever grateful to Dr. Rachel and the Lap of Love service."Jennifer Carriere-SpockBristolFebruary 17, 2020

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Faye Sparks"Dr. Faye was the kindest, most patient and empathetic vet I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting with. She explained the whole process to me very gently and let me cry and play a few songs for my sweet girl. She even helped me move the couch when Jade hid under it. She did everything she was required to do and SO much more, all with the love she would have given her own cats, I’m positively sure.
Dr. Faye, thank you from the bottom of my heart."

As hard as it was I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. Thank you Dr. Anna you were amazing. Max was not just out pet he was our child, he joined us 16 years ago when we decided to make a go at it and live together.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Ashley Payne"It was so hard to make the decision to make the call to Lap of Love. Hard to face the fact that I was going to have to say goodbye to my sweet Max. But I saw that he was suffering and that was breaking my heart too. I am grateful that I was able to end his suffering and that he got to be in his home, with all of his family present. He was on his favorite blanket surrounded by his pack. We loved him through the process keeping him as comfortable and free of fear as possible. It was one of the worst days of my life but I was able to give him a gift of being free for disease, pain, and suffering. Thank you so much for offering this service with such kindness."andrea bishopmariettaFebruary 16, 2020Maximus Desimu "Max"'s Pet Memorial
