Donations in Memory

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”

- Anatole France

The hardest thing about loving is losing. Dogs are with us on this earth such a short time, we learn to appreciate every day that we are fortunate enough to spend with them. Whether a dog has been with us a lifetime or a brief time, when s/he dies, the loss is great and deeply felt. A gift given in memory can serve as a loving remembrance of that special relationship. Providing much needed help to others in need, through a donation, also can help to bring consolation at a time of grief. To donate in memory please click here.
