In Memoriam: Blessing

By Dani Goen published on September 15th, 2022
"Dr Tillman was kind and gentle and made the experience of helping Blessing cross the rainbow bridge bearable."
Blessing chose our family 14-1/2 years ago. She was a spunky Aussie with tons of energy. In her last weeks she slowed way down but her eyes still held the love she had for us. Blessing was my hiking and walking buddy and loved car rides. She was a furry baby who we loved with our whole hearts! Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Bob

By Meghan Piersma published on August 31st, 2022
"Doctors Hoss & Hamm made Bob's last few moments on earth very comfortable. We'll always be grateful for their gentle care of our sweet boy."
Bob came into my life when I was living alone and quickly became a sure companion. He was a stray that a neighbor had taken to c-snip and kept talking about how great this male cat was and that, even though I had allergies, I should at least try taking him in. I never looked back. He made 2 big moves with me cross-country, not to mention multiple apartments and homes. He became quick buddies… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Naomi

By Ben & Amanda published on August 22nd, 2022
"We couldn't have asked for anything better. Heaven at home made this entire process a little easier."
We rescued Naomi when she was 8 years old. We knew we wouldn't have her for very long with her already being older but we wanted to give her the best retirement home possible. We were able to give her another 5 years of a treat filled life. It took her a few months to trust us and open up. She bloomed into this gorgeous doof. She was so gentle and patient. She loved us… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Nausicca

By Andrea Hockey published on August 2nd, 2022
"I honestly don't remember who I spoke with during that initial phone call. I was pretty distraught and that day is a bit blurry. But I know they were kind and gently led me through the…"
We rescued Naussica as a puppy and our family immediately fell in love with her. I was scared to adopt another dog because a few years prior I had to say good bye to my 13 year old shepherd mix and it was one of the hardest days of my life. But once Naussica was home, I knew the love we would share would fill my heart again. And of course, she ended up rescuing… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Bolo

By Lisa and Matt published on August 2nd, 2022
"We had a lovely experience that was full of empathy and patience."
Bolo was rescued when he was 1.5 years old and gave us 14 years of happiness! He was so spunky, stubborn, protective, and cuddly. His favorite things were to go for walks and lay in the sun. He brought us pure joy! Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: McTavish

By Alexandra Dantuma published on July 11th, 2022
"Everyone connected with “Heaven at Home” is caring, thoughtful, Competent, and will help you traverse this sad pathway."
McTavish was our first Scottish Terrier. He was a birthday gift from my husband. Love at first sight is an understatement…he totally melted my heart. Full of spunk and spirit. Loved life, people, rolling in the grass, and fighting with the vacuum, and sprinkler. He added so much joy to our lives. He loved it when we would bring him up to Charlevoix...loved the beach and chasing seagulls. He was tremendously obedient and faithful. I… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Pudge

By Julie Endres published on July 11th, 2022
"I can not say enough good things about Heaven at Home. Both Mary & Catherine were so compassionate on the phone and amazingly understood what I was saying even though I was crying hysterically. Dr. Barnes…"
We rescued Pudge as a puppy and he lived an amazing 15+ years with such a loving heart. He grew up with my own two children and was truly my third child. He loved his walks everyday, even in the winter. As he aged, they became strolls but he was always excited to walk the neighborhood, parks and trails and greet dogs and people alike. He was deeply loved and will be missed everyday. Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Cooper

By Holly Pendergast published on June 17th, 2022Cooper was a cockapoo that had the kindest and gentlest soul who loved children. He stole my heart and filled it with love. He leaves behind his Mom, Dad, his 2 adult children and his fur brother, Buster, and his Annie. We all love him dearly and will miss him. Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Montee

By Paula published on May 27th, 2022
"What a wonderful service to pets and owners. Montee’s last memory was of home surrounded by love vs. a fearful car ride to an office. Much easier on both of us. Dr Kate was wonderful, calm…"
Montee was rescued 3 times, once as a lonely stray, once as a failed adoption, & then to his forever home. He loved kids (played Barbie with the grandkids), did tricks for food, & was my little shadow. Loved his walks on a leash & rang a bell to go out. What a guy! Such a love.

In Memoriam: Remi

By Lisa Venhuizen published on May 9th, 2022
"I will always be thankful for Heaven at Home. The woman that I talked to initially on the phone and Dr. Hoss were both extremely kind and compassionate. They made a heartbreaking time easier. Dr Hoss…"
Remi was a beautiful Labrador non retriever. She just looked at us and wagged her tail if we threw a ball, Frisbee, anything. She was the most loyal, loving, gentle soul I've ever known. She was my son's best friend from age 10 to 22. Losing her has left a big hole in our hearts. I do believe we will see her again. Read The Rest of This Memorial
