In Loving Memory of Utah and her 2 siblings, Harley and Poco, owned by our good friends Gene and Robin Benus

The story started in Howell, NJ on June 7, 1997 when our friends' dog, Sami had seven beautiful lab-shepherd mixed puppies. The puppy named Utah pick my husband, Boyd, to "adopt." In addition to the mama, our friends kept two puppies and named them Harley and Poco. In 2001, we moved to western Pennsylvania; however, we always kept in touch with one another and enjoyed sharing dog stories. Utah and her siblings died exactly one week apart this new year. They came into this world together and they crossed over the Rainbow Bridge together. We are blessed to have these sweet natured and loving dogs for 14 1/2 years. We know in our hearts that they are young again, and ready to play with each other and the many other furry pets in the heavens above.

Utah was consider "grandma" to Rusty the beagle whom we adopted from your wonderful organization, Paws for Life.

In Memory of Luvvie 1993-2009


Pets have a way of teaching us about love, loyalty, joy, and friendship. The gifts Luvvie gave us- happiness, companionship, unconditional love- will always be with us and we will treasure them forever. Luvvie was more than a pet- she was a member of our family.

 


In Memory of Sam.

I miss you.........

"Several years ago, I think May of 1999 or 2000, I went to the Oxford Hay and Grain to buy feed for my horses the day of the Adoptathon. There were animals to adopt everywhere. Had I known that the event was going on, I never would have gone on that day.

It ended up to be one of the best days of my life because I met Lily (then Jackie.) She was the last dog left in your Paws For Life pen. I did not pick her, she picked me. She stared straight at me as if to say "You. I've been waiting for you. Now come over here and get me out." I did not adopt her that day, but went home, only to spend a week tracking her down to your shelter, contacting you, and then going to Maryland to get her.

She was the best dog anyone could ask for. We were joined at the hip,as they say. These past few months, Lily's health began to fail. Despite medicine, special diet, Lily developed kidney failure. I miss her terribly.

I am asking if you are aware of any more Petathons or Adopt a pet events in the near future. A part of me is waiting for a special dog to find me and it will happen, but asking if there are any events coming up may help. Thank you for your kind attention".

"Back in November, 1997, you brought to my house at 15 N. Clifton Ave, a mixed-beagle dog which I named Buster. We had a little trouble at first adjusting, but once that worked out he became a delightful companion.

After we moved to this 55 Plus community, we gave up the fenced-in yard. However, he loved to walk and we would go out walking several times a day. He began to develop problems several months ago. When he got to the point he could not keep food on his stomach I had to make the difficult decision about a month or so ago to put him to sleep.

I thank you for bringing him into my life. He was a very special little dog and is sadly missed. I would like to make this small contribution of $25 to your work in his memory."

In Memory of Bear

You were such a sweet, loving boy.
After being neglected your whole life, you finally got your chance to find a good home..........
but it wasn't soon enough.

In spite of everything, you were so kind
and trusting and gentle.

We will miss you, but know that you are
now safe and at peace....


 

In loving memory of our dear, sweet, great black lab, Smokey....he will truly be missed.

In Memory of Trooper

We are the Welch family and we adopted Trooper from you in 2006.  We changed his name to Buddy, and he was the best dog we could have possibly found anywhere.  He got sick on Dec 23, and Christmas morning we had to put him to sleep.  We wanted you to know that he had a great life with us and we all loved him alot.

We are thinking about maybe adopting another dog someday.  We will definately check your site often to see who you have available.
