I adopted Maddie from Wishbone back in 2011. She was the greatest gift I could have ever possibly received. I needed her just as much as she needed me. In fact, I truly believe that SHE rescued ME instead of the other way around. My sweet girl passed away on September 9 of this year. I had her for slightly over 10 wonderful years that now feel like they went in the blink of an eye. My husband Patrick and I spoiled Maddie every chance we got and she spoiled us right back with so much unconditional love. We gave her a happy home where she knew she was safe and protected. She was truly our baby. As I mourn her loss, which is nearly unbearable, I’m also incredibly grateful to Wishbone for bringing this oh so very sweet girl into my life. will forever be proud to be her daddy and will miss her always. My Maddie girl.

In memorial of Jim Frizzell, father to a friend of mine.

In memory of Ruth Apfelbaum, from her loving family and friends.

Frankie was adopted from Pet Central on 1/13/2010. He was approximately 2 when he came home with us. Frankie and I were inseparable his whole life. He loved to play ball and always loved his treats and belly rubs, always asking for more belly rubs. He gave the best kisses, too!! He had my whole heart and was my doggy soul mate. He passed unexpectedly this morning and took my whole heart with him when he passed, at the tender age of 10 years and 10 months. He was deeply loved and will be greatly missed by us all. We love you Frankie!

Booshka was our sweet boy who passed too early in May of 2018. We miss him every day. This week he would have celebrated his 10th birthday and we wish he would have been here to get peanut butter filled kongs and 1000 hugs.

Bailey was a most handsome and loved companion.

In loving memory of Reann Gibson.

In memory of Balthy

I will never forget Ruth's beautiful voice welcoming to her home.
She was a great neighbor and friend to my parents Martha and Juan.
Ruth was a wonderful, caring person and I enjoyed talking with her when I would visit my parents. I never had a chance to thank her for the many times she took my Mom to the movies and to outings.
May your Rest In Peace. Blessings to the Apfelbaum Family during this difficult time.​

We are making this donation today because we got our precious dog one year ago. You named him Milton but we adopted him and changed his name to Gunner. He’s a great chocolate Labrador mix and he has had a great year with us. This donation is to Honor our boy on his GOTCHA DAY one year ago.

A quiet spirit, but always ready with a smile. Rest with the angels, Gailen.

In loving Memory of Payton, energetic and bouncy little guy!

In memory of our neighbor Reann Gibson

People love dogs. You can never go wrong adding a dog to the story. --Jim Butcher
Barb Jansky knew this, lived it and passed this wisdom onto her daughter, Sue. Many a dog has thrived in the arms of the Jansky girls. My bet is Barb was met at the gates of Heaven by every dog who was lucky enough to have ever felt her love. Such a beautiful visual! 

Barb Jansky passed her love of animals onto her daughter, Sue.
