In Memoriam: Ronin

By Tom U published on March 8th, 2022
"Thank you to Laurie from Heaven at Home Pet Hospice for allowing Ronin to pass peacefully at home surrounded by love! I will miss you sweet girl but believe you have found your legs again and…"
Incredibly sad and emotional day saying goodbye to my Ronin. She was an amazing dog for 9 years until arthritis took over her rear hips. She lost so much mobility over the past couple of months and I would carry her out multiple times per day. I was committed to assisting her as long as she would allow it. The vet said she will let you know when her time was done and she was… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Saint

By Brittany published on March 8th, 2022
"Kim was so kind, gentle and comforting. Thank you- truly, from the bottom of our hearts."
Saint was the most gentle, kind, loving old soul. He made everyone he met fall in love with him! He loved rocks, treats and snuggles from his family. Most of the time you could find him snuggled up on our couch or hiding in the “ woods” ( our house plant) :)  He will be missed more than words can express. We love you sweet boy. You have made the last 14 years of our… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Sophie

By Barry and Wendy Sullivan published on January 25th, 2022
"We were extremely pleased with Heaven At Home. Everyone was kind, helpful and sympathetic. I will recommend them to friends and family."
Sophie was our beautiful 6 year old Dalmatian. She loved chasing squirrels, riding in our truck, going camping, and on the pontoon boat. We are both retired so we had lots of time to spoil her. We also have 18 grandchildren and 4 great grandsons, and Sophie loved playing with the kids. Sophie was diagnosed with kidney failure and we lost her on Christmas Eve. We both miss her so much. Our lives will never… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Blu and Gussy

By Pam Foster published on January 25th, 2022
"Dr. Tillman (with Blu) and Dr. Brush (with Gussy) assisted our family in transitioning both over "The Rainbow Bridge". I cannot say enough good things about either of them and their compassion for what they do!…"
Blu, our cattle dog mix, lived till the ripe old age of 13 1/2 after we adopted her as a puppy from the Capital Area Humane Society. We had to make the decision to humanely euthanize her in April 2021 due to dementia and senior arthritis. She was a great dog and a part of our family. Gussy, our basset hound, only knew Blu as his "mom" and sorely missed her every day. Gus developed… Read The Rest of This Memorial

In Memoriam: Luka

By Monique Johnson published on January 25th, 2022
"Dr. Barnes was more than we could have hoped for on our very tough day. She provided support and guidance for helping my kids through the process and we are so grateful. Luka had such a…"
Luka enriched our lives for 14 adventurous years, and he was such a gift we will always cherish. He traveled across the county multiple times, lived with us in 16 different places and stepped into both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. He rode thousands of miles with us and was so adaptable and loving through it all. Luka was very smart too. As a puppy, he could pick out which toy I named with up… Read The Rest of This Memorial

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

By Angela Joslyn published on October 29th, 2021
"We can’t thank Heaven at Home enough. A big thank you to Dr Kim Barnes. We are forever grateful to you for your compassion and care for Bailey."
Bailey was known and loved by so many. We are so blessed to have had her for the 13 short yrs that we did. If love alone could have kept her here, she would have lived forever. One day, Bailey Jean Joslyn we will be together again. ❤️ Read The Rest of This Memorial
