In Memory of Admiral Dewey
Admiral Dewey, our beloved Golden Retriever who died on March 17th, 2011, Saint Patrick's Day. We cannot express how much we miss our boy, who will live on in our hearts forever.
Dewey was 11 and a half years young when he died in our family room, lying next to my husband, who was giving Dewey his favorite thing- morning "pets" following a walk.
We did not become Dewey's full-time parents until he was two, when a neighbor called us at 4:00a.m. to say that her dog (whom we had been connecting with) was sick and that she would have to "put him down" unless we took him. Needless to say, our precious Dewey found a home with us, and our only regret is that this beautiful, sweet, loving companion is not still a part of our family. Our only consolation is to picture Dewey up in heaven running and playing with Bandit, Pixie, and Whiskers, our other dogs who have crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.

In Memory of KD & Annie
In Memory of Sandy Kratzer Sandy and Denny Kratzer came to us a little over 3 years ago with the kind offer to foster. They thought it might be a good idea since they loved animals, but also love to travel. What a GIFT they have been! To date, we have saved 1740 lives, and they have fostered over 100 of those! The time and love they put into their babies has truly helped us save many more lives.
Sandy was living with COPD and lost her battle this spring (2011). She was a loving mother and wife who made a difference in so many feline lives. Her presence and special touch will be truly missed.
Her husband Denny honors her memory by continuing to foster the babies! The family also kindly dedicated her memorial to us...resulting in over $1,000!
We know Sandy is smiling, and we smile to know she not only continues to make a difference down here on earth, but also is the one bottle feeding a baby kitten up in Heaven who crossed the bridge too early!
