Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristina Kalivoda"Dr. Kristina is a jewel. The comfort and deep caring she provided when Talia and I decided that it was time for her to go Home made her passing so much easier. I never knew that there was such a thing as pet hospice and what Dr. Kristina provided was such a warm and gentle atmosphere for Talia and me to say our physical farewells. For her to be surrounded by all the love and familiar sights and scents of her home, I can't begin to tell you how grateful I am for Dr. Kristina and all who are connected with Lap of Love. My deepest thanks to you wonderful angels-on-earth."Linda ChilesPhoenixJuly 16, 2019

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Spitzer"We were so grateful to Dr. Spitzer during this heart wrenching time. She was patient, kind, experienced and everything we needed to get through a difficult day. She took the best care of our 16 year-old baby Zeke (and us). Not having to take him to the vet where he is always nervous made everything so much easier and truly peaceful. Our hearts our aching today but we are so, so happy Dr. Spitzer helped us through. I highly recommend Lap of Love and Dr. Spitzer."Laurie PetersonThousand OaksJuly 16, 2019

Thank you so much for your compassion in our family's time of need. While it was so unbelievably difficult for us, you were able to give our Sammy the gift of peace.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lorry Jolitz"Dr. Lorry was the most caring and loving person that we could have hoped for to help our sweet boy cross over the rainbow bridge.

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Amanda Page"When it was time for our amazing friend Gusty to leave his failing body, Dr. Amanda Page made the process as comfortable as possible. Of course it can never be a good experience, but it was far better for everyone than doing it at a vet's office.

Dr. Page was sweet & we never felt rushed.

When it's time for our other dog, Rex, to move on, we intend to give her a call again.

Thank you!"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: Carling Sitterley"We would like to offer our sincere thanks to Dr. Carling and her team for helping us through an extremely difficult time. Daisy was our Bichon Frise that lived with us for almost 15 years and she was truly a beloved member of our family. She was the best thing that every happened for us, but eventually her health started to fail and we knew it was her time. We were very reluctant to take her to the vet as it always upset her. A relative suggested that we contact the Lap Of Love organization for help. These wonderful people visited our home, spent time with our family, and helped Daisy move on to a better place. They were kind and considerate and made this painful experience as comfortable as possible for all of us. We cannot say enough about how well they treated everyone."Tom & Lisa TannerJonestownJuly 15, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Lorry Jolitz"I truly cannot say enough about Dr. Lorry. She was Exactly who we needed from the moment she got out of the car until the moment she took our sweet boy away. I hope she is able to see our comments, because she honestly made one of the saddest days I have ever been through, easier to navigate. There was no question unanswered, and no rush in her. Her compassion and empathy was real. She took such amazing care of not only Capone, but us as a family who surrounded him in his last moments.

Thank you so very much,
Danny & Michelle (and the rest of our family)"

Lap of Love Veterinarian: George Croskey"My husband Todd and I are grateful to Dr. Croskey and the Lap of Love staff. Dr. Croskey was most understanding to our needs and grief as she was skilled in assisting our loved Chuck in his passing. We would not have wanted anything less than a peaceful passing for our boy surrounded by those he loved and those who loved and cherished him. When Chuck came to live with us it was forever and he loved his home. So to send him on his way surrounded by all he loved was a Blessing. For Dr. Croskey and the team we send our love and Blessings. Our family will always be grateful for the time that we had with our Wooly Mammoth and we will always cherish the times we shared."Carla AndersonFairbornJuly 15, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Melinda Glavin"WE FINALLY HAD HER PUT TO REST AT HOME WITH PEOPLE NAMED "LAP OF LOVE". WE DIDN'T HAVE HER CREMATED, SO IT WAS SUCH A BLESSING TO HAVE THIS WONDERFUL, CARING PERSON COME TO OUR HOUSE TO DO IT IN OUR PET'S OWN SETTING. THE VET'S NAME WAS DR. GLAVIN FROM PHILA. VETERINARIAN HOSPICE WHO CAME TO PUT CHLOE DOWN."Priscilla YoderPennsylvaniaJuly 15, 2019Chloe's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Kristine Campanelli"Unfortunately we had to put my best friend down due to an aggressive cancer. Pocono a Chocolate Lab was our family pet and everyone’s best friend for 11 1/2 years. When it was time we were referred to Lap of Love. When we made the schedule date, customer phone service and email correspondence was awesome. They were very patient with me since I could barely muster up a sentence nevertheless pick a time and date even though it had to be done. We selected a date and waited. The day arrives and we decided to do this outside in the fresh air on our back deck where we spent much family time with Pocono. Dr. Kristine arrived and walked up to the deck, Pocono got up and greeted her. Dr. Kristine sat on the deck and began to pet my buddy and they became instant friends. Eventually it was time so my family and I hugged him one last time. Kristine told us everything she was doing and how Pocono would respond. For one of the toughest days of my life, I was so thankful that Dr. Kristine was there. I had this perfect stranger doing something that has to be incredibly tough to do but did it with a love and understanding. She took into consideration the comfort of our pet as well as ours. Thank you Dr. Kristine and Lap of Love. The Galante family."Rich GalantePatchogueJuly 15, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Daniel Genatiempo"I can’t recommend Lap of Love enough. Smudge was at home and not stressed at an office. She was surrounded by people she loved and was happy and calm. I will never do this any other way. The doctor was gentle and soothing and explained everything as he did it. Most of all smudge was happy and we were not rushed in any way to hurry our grief along. Amazing service they provide."Shari HaganMooresvilleJuly 15, 2019Smudge's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Brad Bates"My family and I were so fortunate enough to be introduced to Lap of Love and to Dr. Brad. Dr. Brad helped me make an informed decision about my baby, who was diagnosised with terminal cancer just a few weeks ago. He is intelligent, articulate, kind and genuine. It is because of him that my baby, Greta, had the best two weeks on "hospice" and it was because of him that my baby never even knew she was dying and it was because of him that she peacefully fell asleep in my lap, surrounded my love and rotisserie chicken. He is a true angel....."bridget glantzchalfontJuly 15, 2019Greta's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Jessica Bollinger"I first heard of Lap of Love from my aunt, who used their services for her cat, and I thought that was a wonderful thing to do for a pet. When it was time to say goodbye to my precious cat Reilly last week I gave them a call. From that first phone conversation with Sara through the entire process I just can't say enough good things about this company. Dr. Jessica gently explained everything that would take place and what to expect. She is the best person for a job like this - very thoughtful, considerate and soft-spoken (my cat was usually nervous around people with loud voices). I had to put down one other cat a while back and did that at a vet's office so I wasn't quite sure what to expect as far as how my cat would be taken out of the house, but let me say that seeing him be carried out in a little white basket covered up to his head with a very cute blanket was a comforting last visual to have of him. I walked out with her and she put him on the front passenger seat. I loved how they thought about every detail. Everyone I've spoken with about our experience was impressed and said they'd like to go this route with their pet. Thank you Dr. Jessica and Lap of Love for making this difficult time less painful! God bless your good work!"Kathy MitchellSouth St PaulJuly 15, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Anna Champagne"Dr. Anna Champagne is the most gentle and professional veterinarian I have ever had the pleasure to meet. The way she explained step by step what was happening was a great comfort to myself and Alley, and helped Alley cross over without suffering and with a calmness I myself did not have. Thank you Dr. Anna from the bottom of my heart."Eugene FosterWesley ChapelJuly 15, 2019Alley's Pet Memorial
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Annie Dion-Byrd"Our Baby Girl (11 year old Great Dane) had to cross the rainbow bridge. I can not express the love and care Dr. Annie gave us from the time she called us on the way to our house until she pull out of the driveway with Harleigh. Dr. Annie did a full exam and expressed to us it was definitely time for our baby to go to bed due to her breathing and her progressing Caner. I trust EVERYTHING Dr. Annie says 100% and I do not know how to thank her enough for how she took care of all of us, I seriously just love her so much. I am so thankful for you Dr Annie for not only doing the job you do and not having Harleigh spend her last minutes in a cold lonely vet room but loving the job you do by ensuring the animals are in total comfort the entire time. Thank you so so so much <3 Melissa Crawford."Melissa and Thomas CrawfordOaklandJuly 15, 2019
Lap of Love Veterinarian: Sarah Tangeman"Hello Dr. Sarah… As difficult as Friday was on us, you sincerely made it so much better and memorable. What you do is such a blessing and really a ministry. We have cried a LOT since Friday but we have also repeated how BLESSED we were to find you to come into our home and escort our Angel to the next adventure. I have to tell you an interesting note. Midnight had been weaker and weaker over the last few days. He chose to come straight into the house and lay down every time after we went outside. However, on Friday when I went to direct you into our complex and meet you, Kim said he stood the whole time I was gone. Looked around and was waiting there when you walked into the room. I tell you, it was like he was expecting you and already knew you. I honestly was taken back when we walked in the door to see him standing and wagging his tail! Then when he saw you it was like “Oh, there you are. I’ve been waiting for you…welcome!” Such a blessing and an answer to prayers. I work in radio and do a nationwide show on Saturdays. Locally we are on 92.5 KZPS from 8 am until 11 am, but also on from Washington DC to Las Vegas and 30 market in between. On Saturday morning I related the story of your visit and gave your company and mentioned that “Dr. Sarah” is truly and Angel. I hope that is ok. Kim and I both want to reiterate how THANKFUL we are that we had you into our home to gently and so masterfully usher our baby to the next Adventure over The Rainbow Bridge! I know Midnight appreciated your kindness as well. You are an Angel! John & Kim"JOHN BIBBSGrapevineJuly 14, 2019Midnight - The Wonder Dog!'s Pet Memorial
