To a great dog and cat lover

BJ Draper-Anderson, dedicated to her for love and care of all animals

Thad Sutter had a big heart for people and animals alike, but he especially loved his dogs and enjoyed fostering for Wish Bone. We know he is now in Heaven going on long walks with Banjo by his side.

To help animals which were so loved by Jackson Leffler.

Ollie was a special little guy with a unique personality! So cute with his chin whiskers and will never be forgotten. He was loved and cared for greatly.

Sweet Karma, soulful girl. Your light was a gift to all that crossed your path. You were a star in the love department. Never a nip or growl or bark, just calm, cool and oh so Hollywood. Your glamorous locks and gleaming eyes, such a beauty. You would say hello to everyone that you came upon with your floating walk and sometimes little bounce. Bows and flowers adorned your hair, you loved to pose for the camera with flare. Above all your Momma Mandy couldn't be thankful enough for all your brought to her life. A partner in crime, confidant,a best friend. You loved well and you will be forever missed. Love -Auntie Diane 

Stephany loved and deeply cared for her dogs working to make certain other animals received the same care and love she gave her own companions.

In loving memory of Lisa Galloway - Missed but never forgotten

​​Family, friends and animals were the most important things to Stephany. She was a poster child of advocacy through rescue, volunteerism, and fundraising for animal orphans who needed help. We want to continue this support in her name.

Sport was adopted October 2014. When I picked him up I was told that they were waiving the fees as he was such a handful. But he was the most loving dog ever. He hated the car but would tolerate a ride to the dog park or daycare where he could run or play in the pool. Failed as a bird dog but could go to point on a butterfly. He loved to snuggle, especially during the winter. Would want out during a rain storm just so he could be toweled dry. Diagnosed with cancer in March and lost his battle July 23, 2020. Great, goofy, one of a kind Llewellin Setter.

In memory of Joy Kidwell. She loved her dogs.
