In Memoriam: River

By Maureen Rice published on January 11th, 2022
"I would like to thank Dr. Kim for her kindness and compassion."
How lucky am I to have had 12 plus years with my sweet golden retriever, River. Every day was a gift. He was my sunshine and will always hold a spot in my heart. Goodbyes are never easy with those you love, yet I am relieved he is no longer suffering. Together, River and I explored parks and trails all over West Michigan, often before daylight. He loved snow as much as I do and… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Emily

By Shane Smith published on December 14th, 2021
"The staff did a great job. Dr. Kim was very supportive & kind throughout the process. Wouldn't have done it any other way!"
Emily had a very funny personality. She did what she wanted, when she wanted (that's a bulldog for ya)! She loved to spend her days sleeping and snuggling. Emily is truly & dearly missed. Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Ashley

By Dennis and Kimberly Jeltema published on November 16th, 2021
"Heaven at Home was amazing. We have had previous experience with the loss of a pet and this experience was by far most peaceful and kind. We are so grateful for your services and kind people,…"
We had just bought our first real house and we have always had cats but couldn't really have dogs where we lived. I started bugging my husband for a puppy but he grew up in a rural area and their dogs were outside, not really pet, pets. I, on the other-hand, grew up with German Shepherds and had the best memories with them. One day I was looking on Craigslist at puppies and came across… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Minnie

By Kate published on August 25th, 2021
"We were so glad we were able to have Heaven at Home help us. We could not have done it without Dr. Hoss. It was very comforting to know that Minnie would not suffer anymore."
When we lived in St. Louis, MO we adopted Minnie, a Maine Coon mix. She could fit in your hand but grew to be 18 pounds! She was very sweet and cuddly from the minute we got her. We moved to Chicago when Minnie was 8 and she became a "city cat." (Always inside, no worries). She adjusted to high rise living very well and loved gazing out the windows - 23 floors up!

In Memoriam: Hannah

By Kevin & Malinda published on February 16th, 2021
"You were able to give us 6 more wonderful months with Hannah, for that, I can never thank you enough. From the first phone call I made to the office I knew that I had made…"
Hannah's Story: Hannah was a present to me after I graduated from nursing school. She was my very first dog I could call my own. I never imagined I would have the bond that I did with her. Her love for us was unconditional and so pure. As a puppy, she loved to curl up next to us on the couch and soak up all the attention we were willing to give. At first, she… Read The Rest of This Memorial

Azul. I'm not sure I'm ready to post this, but your family has spent the last 24 hours doing nothing but looking at your pictures and remembering all the years we had with you and it has brought us so much joy.

We are so proud to have been your humans Lexie! You are a Pampered Poodle for sure girl with close to fifty wonderful babies in your lifetime. Your temperament was so exceptional. You were your Dad's greatest companion when he was living the lonely bachelor life before I came along. I knew if he ever loved me half as much as he loved you I'd be one lucky gal!
