In Memoriam: Tribute to Graycie the Cat

By Anonymous Pet Parent published on September 19th, 2019
"We are full-time RV'ers. We knew for 8 months that our Graycie Girl had an inoperable tumor in her bladder. We searched out a veterinarian service every place we traveled just so we knew we had…"
How do you say good-bye to the best little buddy you've ever known? How do you say good-bye to the one that's brought you so much joy, that's loved you unconditionally, that greeted you every time you came home, and sat in your lap every morning for coffee, that always wanted to be right where you were, and that slept by your pillow at night? How do you say good-bye to a pet that's been… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Bianca

By Anonymous Pet Parent published on July 30th, 2019
"Your service was wonderful. I heard about the process from a friend in Florida, and my daughter's vet recommended you. You were wonderful all through the process, and her passing was absolutely beautiful."
Bianca came to me by way of transport from North Carolina. She was a deaf stray who was found under a deck with her three babies. She was a beautiful cat - big blue eyes and long soft white fur. We called her The Lion Queen, as she loved the backyard. She would sit on top of the deck railing and would chase any critters out of the yard. When she saw me she would… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Noonan

By Anonymous Pet Parent published on July 25th, 2019
"Thank you for giving our family member the dignified death he deserved. We will always be grateful to you."
There are certain great dogs that find you only once in a lifetime. For us, that dog was Noonan, our Golden Doodle. He was truly an old soul; gentle, always calm, and confident even in the face of chaos. He was our emotional sponge, absorbing tears, hugs, joy, exhaustion, and despair without ever asking for anything in return. He was ALWAYS there for our family and made our house a home through his warmth and… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Frosty

By Anonymous Pet Parent published on July 18th, 2019
"The staff at Heaven at Home has God-given gifts to perform this service, the care and compassion were heartfelt and very needed at a difficult time like this. If the final moments in aiding a beloved…"
Frosty was a young energetic boy when we first got him. He loved to play and one game was stealing any article of clothing that was laying around, though he was not opposed to rooting around a pile of clothes for to find a sock. Then he would flaunt it and prance around until I chased him to get it back. When he came, we already had a husky, named Tanner, and the 2 of… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Lambeau Raue

By The Raue Family published on July 18th, 2019
"We're so appreciative of Heaven at Home and the services they provide. We worked with Kathryn and Dr. Amy and these two wonderful people made it possible for us to get through this situation. We cannot…"
Lambeau was born on November 28th, 2007. We brought our new Golden Retriever home as soon as he was old enough. He was a big Golden as were his parents and very laid back. Our grandchildren could climb all over him, wrestle with him, and play tug-of-war with him with his blanket and he was always ready to play. He really enjoyed it when people came to visit and also the snow. Lambeau will always… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Jett

By Anonymous Pet Parent published on June 4th, 2019
"Dr. Laura and the staff members we worked with (primarily Kathryn and Mary) were all amazing. They were patient, empathetic, and always took the time to answer all our questions. We truly felt they cared for…"
Jett was an amazing blessing to our family. Through all the transitions of life; education, careers, multiple moves, and multiple children, he was the constant. We had never had a dog before and he was better than we deserved. We didn’t know what we were doing at first, but he was the kind of partner that never required cages, boarding, leashes, anything. He was fiercely loyal, patient, and gentle. It was almost unfair to him,… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Mackinac Island Fall Colors

By Anonymous Pet Parent published on May 16th, 2019
"Always knew Mac would NOT have his life ended on a cold, hard vet's table. Knew of Heaven at Home for quite awhile. Could not have done this without Dr Laurie. You have no idea how…"
It has been a little more than 2 weeks since our little buddy, Mackinac, went to the Rainbow Bridge...April 29, 2019. He was just shy of 15. He came to live in our hearts and home when he was just 8 weeks old. We are just getting to the point where we can talk about the countless memories we have, without tearing up. We knew this would be difficult, but really didn't understand how very… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Miss Daisy

By Anonymous Pet Parent published on May 14th, 2019
"Many, many thanks to Dr. Brush and her office staff. The several times I came to the office to get medicine, everyone was so kind and compassionate. A special thanks to Dr. Brush for helping Miss…"
I adopted Miss Daisy just two years ago. She came from a home with large dogs and was kind of pushed by the wayside, as she was just a thirteen-pound little girl, and never got the love and attention she deserved. When she came to our home, she was loved and her new sister, Bella, became her best friend as though they had always been together. She loved to go for walks, even with her… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Ziggy Keeler

By The Keeler Family published on April 16th, 2019
"He was my best friend and I miss him so much. It has only been a week but the hole he has left is unbearable. I just hope at the end he knew that I loved…"
Ziggy was a character. We met 16 years ago right after I graduated from high school. I went to the local shelter to adopt a kitten that would be my first pet to have on my own. The kittens weren't ready so my sister and I walked around to see the kitties. I opened his cage and turned to talk to my sister. He leaped out and hung from the back of my shirt. He… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Lucky Rainey

By The Rainey Family published on March 23rd, 2019
"Thank you Dr. Tay and Kathryn for your compassion and for letting us say good-bye to Lucky the way we intended...at home, on his bed, with his family. There is a void in our hearts and…"
Lucky (aka Our Doofy) was adopted from Ionia Animal Shelter. We met Lucky after a couple dogs and fell for him immediately. We believe he truly appreciated being brought into a loving home and being treated as a family member. He let the kids do whatever with him. He was always physically close to us...had to follow us into any part of the house. He came out to the dog run and watched us as… Read The Rest of This Memorial
