In Memoriam: Cheez it

By Casey Dillard published on February 26th, 2024
"When it was time to say goodbye I knew we had to keep him at home around his favorite smells, humans and his sister. Many family and friends had used heaven at home and highly recommend…"
We got Cheeze it, and his sister Watermelon, when they were kittens. We adopted them a couple of months into the Pandemic and shortly after we had to put down our older cat. They were just what we needed to brighten the heavy days. Cheez it only had three years with us due to a Chronic disease, but he sure changed our lives for the better. He was so big, fluffy and loved to snuggle… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Houdini

By Donna Dort published on February 26th, 2024
"I very much appreciate Heaven at Home. They were willing to work with me when Houdini rallied, and I postponed the decision. Houdini was not traumatized by it as she would have been if we went…"
Houdini 2006 - 2024 Houdini was a solid black cat with gold eyes and a tail that stuck straight up. She was a talker. Houdini was found at LaPlata County Humane Society in Durango, CO. She was about a year old. When she saw her prospective Mom, she was opening the cage door to come with me. She had a paw stuck through the cage door and was lifting the latch—hence the name Houdini. Most… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Pavel

By Lauren published on February 12th, 2024
"Dr. Laura Tay was the most sincere passionate person. She made our last moments together so peaceful. She truly cares, and treated us with care as if we were a close friend. I'll never forget her…"
Pavel and I started our life together when he was 3 months old. He was quickly labeled the most interesting dog in the world. He was known to go tubing behind boats, steal the hot dog right off your grill, and even go kayaking. He loved most to run the length of the dock and jump "pretty" off the end. He raised our dog Bell and waited patiently as over the years I had three… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Maggie

By The Thompson Family published on January 4th, 2024
"Heaven at Home was exactly what we all needed to help Maggie pass peacefully, without stress, surrounded by her whole family and in her bed (with her treats and favorite bone). Maggie could no longer stand…"
Maggie came to us as a 2-year old "puppy" when our youngest was only 4. We remember that first day she came for a visit, her personality (and body) were larger than life! My husband's first thought was "she's way too much dog for us." I knew she was perfect and for the next 13 years she would be one of our greatest loves. In her younger days Maggie loved our daily runs along all… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Bert

By Lauren B. published on December 20th, 2023
"Heaven at Home was lovely. It was a relief to have the option to be able to say goodbye in a comfortable and familiar place. They were very empathetic and treated the situation with reverence."
In his younger days Bert could run the legs off any other dog at the park and would swim for an hour straight if you didn’t call him back. He hiked mountaintops and ocean beaches, deserts and canyons, dunes and rivers, and the sidewalks of several cities. He would sit and wait until called, would balance treats on his nose until given the ok, was infinitely patient with our children who came along in his… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Rocky

By Pam published on December 20th, 2023
"Everyone at Heaven at Home was kind, respectful and understanding. Rocky was a big boy and they took appropriate measures to accommodate him in his passing. They were wonderful!"
Rocky was the king of our neighborhood! Everyone adored him and his kind and gentle spirit. Although cliche, he truly was a gentle giant. Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Choco

By Jamie DeMaagd published on December 20th, 2023
"We had a wonderful experience with Heaven at Home. While losing our dog was tragic, they made the experience more comforting than I could ever imagine possible. They are a group of very special people and…"
Choco came into our lives in January of 2023 and passed November 21, 2023. There was a lot of uncertainty when Choco joined our family. He was in end stage heart failure when dropped off at the shelter at 13 years old. He had not had vet care and was underweight and missing fur. Due to this neglect, he could be reactive and mistrustful, rightfully so. The Choco we met in January and the Choco… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Baron

By Dr D Aussicker published on December 20th, 2023
"This was our second experience with Heaven at Home and, again, we were impressed with their professionalism and caring."
After 15 years we say goodbye to our dear boy, Baron. Our house will be empty after Sophie, Colby, and now Baron, all Coton de Tulears. The house is so quiet and no complaining about dog related chores. Read The Rest of This Memorial

By Anne published on October 17th, 2023
"We wanted to do the very best for Maizy by keeping her as comfortable as possible in her own bed at home. The entire staff at Heaven at Home was so kind and compassionate thoughout the…"
Our sweet Maizy was the last girl yellow lab from the litter. You know what they say, “save the best for last!” She was the best! A roly poly 12 week old pup who grew with our family for over 12 years into the sweetest, most loyal family dog! Maizy accompanied us on numerous family vacations, walking trails and playing in the water, sitting in the yard watching over the chickens and ducks, was a… Read The Rest of This Memorial
