In Memoriam: Maizy

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

In Memoriam: Willie

By Rosamond Robbert published on September 25th, 2023
"The Heaven at Home vet was supportive and helped Willie leave us with out trauma."
While walking in the woods sixteen years ago a tiny black kitten jumped into my arms out of a bush. That is how I met Wilie. He has been a constant joy and interest in my life until he died this summer. He quickly settled into my house and claimed parts as his own, especially the garage. He did seem lonely and so I adopted Annabelle. Annabelle had one front leg blown off by a… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Bailey

By Andrea published on September 8th, 2023
"Dr. Amy Hoss arrived at our home with the most gentle spirit. She explained everything and made us all (most importantly, Bailey) very comfortable. We used Heaven at Home in 2016 for another beloved dog. When…"
We picked Bailey out of a litter of 7 puppies, or rather, she picked us. From the day we brought her home our world revolved around this goofy puppy that found every way possible to injure herself and never left her mama's side. She spent every nice day she could laying outside in the grass clearly enjoying the breeze in her fur. When she was about 3 years old I stopped checking on her, knowing… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Lucky

By Chad published on September 8th, 2023
"The experience with Heaven at Home was extremely soothing and helpful in our most difficult time. Thank you all there for your kindness and understanding."
We were blessed with 16 years of memories from our sweet, curly boy, Lucky. He just loved to be involved in everything we did. From opening Christmas presents every year to camping, walks and car rides. How we miss his goofy self as he would push us in the back of the knees every time someone came home, just begging to be chased around the house. We love how he always wanted to be in… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Charlie

By Bob S. & Mary M. published on August 17th, 2023
"We were visited by Dr. Amy Hoss, who handled the procedure and was nothing short of amazing. She helped our precious Charlie by taking the time for him to get use to her presence and, when…"
Charlie literally wandered into our lives 19 years ago, when I taught at a small liberal arts college in Michigan. It appeared someone had "set him free" at the end of the term, but it was obvious he had no outdoor skills when he climbed into my wife's lap as she offered him some tuna. What he did have was charm, rambunctious character (when younger), and a fine rabbit-like coat of fur that glistened in… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Weezy

By The Stephenson Family published on July 12th, 2023
"Weezy was able to stay comfortably at home at a time when moving her would likely have been painful and difficult for her. We appreciated the respectful and caring vet who came to assist."
Six years ago, we headed to a Detroit area shelter to pick up a young female basset. They brought out Weezy who was not young and not really a basset but she was sweet and needed a soft place to land so she hopped in the car and joined the family. We’ll never know her history before landing with us but her physical health and anxiety suggested a tough life. Despite her challenges, she was… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Christmas

By Thomas McCormack published on July 12th, 2023
"We knew when it came time we wanted the best for Christmas. Dr. Barns and all the staff, with their gentle kindness and understanding gave us the personal place, for us to say our goodbyes to…"
January 2016, Christmas came up from Texas and rescued us. There was hardly a day go by when she wasn't by our side. Christmas was my best friend. With her sly sense of humor, playfulness and multitudes of kisses she could make me laugh like a five year old. I found out she could also make me cry like a five year old. I'm better for it. Christmas will be deeply missed and we will… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Title

By Stephanie published on June 29th, 2023
"Losing Title was one of the hardest moments my husband and I have ever experienced. However, Heaven at Home made it so much easier. Although Title loved people, he was not overly fond of going to…"
Title came into our lives after a co-worker shared with us that her friend who was a vet was visiting and mentioned she had the sweetest bulldog that was free to a good home. She had other dogs that were aggressive with him so we happily took him in. We were fortunate to have 8 amazing years with him. He was so kind, gentle, caring and the bestest boy. He loved so fiercely that at… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Coco

By Brenda Johnson published on June 2nd, 2023
"We were hesitant at first because of such a huge difference in cost between the vet and HAH, but we are all so glad we decided to go with them. Our two oldest daughters came over…"
My oldest daughter brought Coco home as a tiny little runt kitten in April 2007 as a surprise birthday present for her sister--even though my husband had said "no more." We couldn't help but fall totally in love with her! We had her big brother--same mother but he was from a litter the year before. His name is Cobra and he's a big 17-lb. Main Coon--quite a difference from his petite little sister who weighed… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Diablo a.k.a. “Ablo”

By Tammy & Matt Babcock published on May 1st, 2023
"From the moment I first contacted Heaven at Home it was a great experience. They are very very quick to respond. They are all very thoughtful and kind. Dr. Brush is the one that came to…"
Diablo lived a good long life, way over life expectancy, but he did really well up until the last six months, and then a steady decline. He loved to sit on the furniture with us, he loved to sleep in our bed, he adored being let loose in our back yard so he could run freely, he liked to chase cats and bunnies for fun, and he loved getting treats. He was a very fast… Read The Rest of This Memorial
