Pet Memorial Program

Honoring the Bond, Celebrating the Life Shared

Pet Memorial Cards

When you want to do all you can to honor the love shared…

He gave you everything in life… his heart, his love, and his admiration. You in turn gave him all that and a perfect life, as well as a peaceful end. For that, you are forever grateful for the journey shared, and the guidance from a caring end-of-life professional when it mattered most.

For our beloved pets and those who care for them, the International Association for Animal Hospice and Palliative Care Pet Memorial program is the opportunity to honor the love shared with a beloved pet. A donation to the IAAHPC, a 501 c 3 non-profit association, memorializes the special bond and helps further the field of animal hospice and palliative care. Furthermore,
every card purchased ensures that 100% of the tax-deductible proceeds go to help elevate the mission of the IAAHPC. Whether you are an end-of-life care professional or a loving family looking to show others you care, purchasing a packet of these cards allows others to know how much you care, and also give them the opportunity to have their pet’s photo included in the annual Memorial Tribute video.

These cards are available in 3×5 or 4×6 sizes. Thank you in advance for your donation and for your continued support of the IAAHPC.

Forever in our hearts!

Sooty

Sooty was a feral cat who I tamed. He was all black, with half a tail and a crushed foot that had healed. It took me a year and 7 months until he wanted me to pet him. After that, he sat on my lap every day, and slept by my side every night for 14 years. Taming him was the most meaningful experience of my life.

Sooty was a gentle cat, with the loudest purr I’ve ever heard. He was so happy with his indoor home, and he had no bad habits. He loved the company of my other cats, especially the foster kittens I rescued each year. His best friend was Dudley, a large black cat who was rescued from a shelter. They used to sit so close that I called them the two-headed cat. Dudley misses him now.

I will remember how loyal Sooty was, always wanting to be on my lap the minute I sat down. I will remember how his half-tail swung back and forth when he walked or trotted. I will remember his very loud purr. I will remember that he chose to trust me, and for this I am forever honored and grateful. My life with Sooty changed me, and I will never be the same.

We miss you, Soot-Soot!

Sheba

My little sheba I miss you every moment of every day!!! The house is very quiet I still listen for you to start “talking” in the middle of the night. My ❤️ is broken I miss you so much.we will be together again. Farwell little “red” your not very far your paw prints…forever in my heart❤

Squeakers

Squeakers was a wonderful, sweet, loving kitty and we were so blessed to have her in our lives if only for a couple of years! She is now in Heaven pain-free and playing with all the other kitties that have gone before her! Until we are all together again…we love you Squeakers!

Trouble

Trouble was our First Fur Baby that we adopted after we were married. When we first brought her home she was bouncing off the walls and doing zoomies so I kept telling her she was gonna be in trouble when her dad got home. That is how she got her name. Ironically after we name her she calmed down and became the best cat in the world!! She LOVED her doggie sibling Lexy and strangely enough, Trouble loved All little kids, I mean 5 and under screaming and screeching kids. She adored them. 17 years Trouble was a constant Luv Bug every single day and night. She loved sleeping with Daddy and would literally pound on the door with her paws nonstop to get to her daddy. Lol.. she used to greet the postman and the ups man and the pizza guy and they were all astounded at how friendly and gentle and curious she was. She loved everyone who came into our house. Our hearts are broken, our first baby has gone to heaven to be with some of her fur siblings. I cannot express how much our hearts are hurt and missing our First Baby.

Double

Double left my life just as suddenly as she walked into it, but I’m going to be forever grateful that she chose us to be her family. She was always asking for attention, and more than happy to spend the day cuddling wherever she could. Things just aren’t the same without her in my lap. Rest in peace Double, one day we’ll nap together again.

Bently

Bently was with us for 17 wonderful years you couldn’t ask for a better campanion to share life with. Bently was a rescue as he was found tied to a tree without water I had to have him. He was laid to rest on July 12 as it was time due to his body was just used up . This was the humane thing to do for him. We love you Bently.

Jack

Jack was our little guy, he was in our life for 14 great years, Oh our heart is broken without this little gift from heaven, he got his wings on 9-12-22. God how we miss him. We love you Jack, Aka, little guy, lil pup.

Zena

In loving memory of my sweet Zena girl. My Warrior Princess. You were already 6 years old when we met and when I brought you home you were finally able to be a dog. You loved meeting new people and especially loved children. You were such a kind and gentle soul. I hope you know that you gave me so much more than I have ever given you. I miss you so much mama girl. Until we meet again. I love you forever and always.

Cosmo Italiano

The always adorable, Cosmo Italiano, was my loving companion for 14 years. He was the sweetest, most agreeable pup I’ve ever shared my home with. Cosmo had his own fan club; friends would always include him in invitations to dinner at their homes; boating; concerts; polo, etc. My comfort is visualizing Cosmo at the Rainbow Bridge surrounded by his 2 German Shepherds siblings – who will watch out for him until we are reunited.

Shorty

Shorty came into our lives in 2013. She had been a stray but was tame and sweet. She like bed to be with us. And she liked our dog, Sasha. She would meow loudly outside our bedroom door demanding to come in. She sit beside me on the sofa wanting to be pst of the family. She wanted treats when Sasha got a treat. And she would wait on mats by doors til we would return from walks or a closed room. She was always gentle and sweet with us never. I ting or using her claws. I miss her terribly. Love you, Miss Shorty

Ambroshia

I can only hope that we gave her as much joy as she gave us. She was also such a Diva, but was always loving and sweet! There will never be another Ambroshia. A piece of my heart is now in heaven with her. I will see you again sweet girl. 💕

Daphne

We had to let our sweet girl Daphne go in October. It broke our hearts even though we knew it was best for her. She was a huge part of our lives for 13 years. Her presence in our home will forever be missed!!

Sister

We miss your sweetness and companionship so much. You are forever in our hearts. We love you more than words can say, sweet girl.

Fergie

Our precious sweet Fergie left us way too soon. She brought so much joy into our lives which she forever changed. We cherished every moment we had her and felt so blessed to have adopted her. She was an answer to our prayers when we started searching for the right dog for us. Indeed she was perfect for us. Only God could have orchestrated the way we found her. There will never be another Fergie. We miss her every day. There is a hole in our hearts now that can’t be filled until we are reunited again in Heaven.

Abigail

In memory of a loving girl who brought our family so much happiness. Even though you are no longer with us, you will forever be in our hearts! We love you, sweet Abby!

Zeus

Zeus was loved by many, he was a soul dog and just a lover. He was loyal and strong and is now pain free from bone cancer. Fortunately our family got to spend 9 beautiful years together and this past summer before he gained his angel wings. Forever remembered as moose as that nickname stuck with him through his life. Until we meet again. Love the Rowan family

Princess Sophia (Sophie)

Born Valentines Day, this tiny bundle of white with her pink nose fit in the palm of our hands. Our hearts 💕 swelled with love at that moment.
She was a small pint-size pup and won everyone’s heart she met. Our little Princess became quite the explorer, and over the years, we nic named her Dora.
Her feisty personality allowed her to conquer what she wanted, so those pretty bows and ponytails would become the flight of the crazy hair doo.
She was part of a trio for her first 6 yrs. Her 2 siblings passing she missed them so.
Not long after, we found a baby brother for her, and he became her torment and kept her on her paws. They grew very close the next 8 years.
Now it was her time to go and be the beautiful Angel with her siblings. Her baby brother calmly knew sitting by her side at the end. We comfort him, and he comforts us with heavy hearts missing our Sophie.
This tiny little bundle of white her nose now black our Beautiful Princess is our Angel 😇 above. 14 1/2 years of 💘Love, we celebrated Valentine’s Day and your birthday with you. Our hearts will always MISS YOU 😢
I miss your calming nighttime snoring 💤

Cherished member of our family for 12 years. She had the most gentle soul and big heart and was the best companion we could ask for. Malone brought many years of joy and will be remembered forever.

We miss you with all our hearts. You left an empty spot in our lives. We look forward to the day that we can hold you again and look at your loving eyes and tell you that we love you dearly. Until that day, we will keep you close to our hearts. We love you and miss playing with you. God bless you!

Duke

Duke we miss you so much. You were the sweetest, most gentle and patient boy ever. Life isn’t the same without you. You were the one constant through so many changes in our lives. You brought so much joy and companionship over your 13-1/2 years. We love and will miss you forever. Thank you for all the love and fun. Be at peace Sweet Boy. XxOo

Pepper

This is Pepper. She was a broken, abused, very afraid little girl when we adopted her. She slowly began trusting us and truly learned what love is through her time with us. She had a very happy life and became my absolute soul mate. I can’t believe she’s gone, but I know she’s running and playing in heaven with her canine sister, Ginger.

Bella

I rescued Bella from the Humane Society when she was eight years old. She was one of two dogs relinquished and her pet brother or sister was adopted right away and Bella had been there for a month. We bonded immediately and even though my son wanted a puppy that was at the Society, I convinced him that we needed to take Bella home. She was so happy on that ride home with us. She was a great dog. She was so well behaved. I really didn’t want to get a dog, but I knew my son wanted one and I had just bought a house with a huge fenced-in backyard so I decided to go ahead with the adoption. I never imagined the bond I would form with that dog or how much I loved her. I still miss her horribly and believe that the decision to say goodbye to her was one of the hardest things I’ll ever do in my life. I miss you and I love you, Bella. I can’t wait to see you again.

Diezel

We were lucky to have our sweet “Tiny” aka Diezel for almost 14 years! Although we miss him dearly, we know he is finally able to challenge everyone in a tug of war again and chase after all the frisbees and sticks in doggy heaven. We love you Tiny.

Dagon

Farewell.

Chomp

This is chomp. He was a great dog and friend. We miss him so much.

Pogi

Our beloved Pogi was our pack leader and gave nothing but love and happiness to our family for 15 years. We were truly blessed to be a part of his life and not a day goes by we do not think of him. We miss him dearly and he will remain forever in our hearts. We love you Pogi and thank you for rescuing us!

Cinderella

My dear Cinderella, my best friend, you gave me unconditional love and acceptance when nobody else would. You were always happy to see me when I came home and provided me with your company during my loneliest hours. Your innocence and funny ways provided me with enjoyment and laughter. I will forever miss you!

Zoe

Our sweet Zoe left us too soon. In good physical health but her mind lost its edge. We loved her for 14 years.

Tyson

Our beloved Tyson was my ride or die. He was my shadow, and we loved to go on walks, hikes, camping trips, swims at the beach and so, so much more. His time to go came too soon and our family misses him dearly. Our home will never be the same without him but he will forever be in our hearts and his memory will live on.

Bella

We really miss you, Bella. You have been part of the family for 17 years. We love you so much it was hard to let you go. We knew you loved us because you hung right in there till the end.

Maggie & Scout

To my sweet girls, Maggie and Scout, you brought so much love, joy, laughter, happiness, and companionship to my life. You both will be in my heart forever. Run free in the wildflower fields, and I will be with you again one day. I love you, both, always! Mommy

Winston

Winston, aka Sweetie Man, came into our hearts at 8 weeks old. He has lived up to his nickname “Sweetie Man.” A fuzzy, wild, small grateful kitty, grew into a loving, shoulder buddy for Billy. Winston fought hard for a year, with kidney failure, and at 2 months shy of his 18th birthday, we had to kiss him goodbye. We look for him now in all his special places. We miss him so.

Figaro

Such a sweet, loving boy. We miss you terribly.

Roxy

Don’t forget, my girl
Somewhere between hello and goodbye,
There was love
So much love

Brugge

You were so much more than a beloved pet. You were my best friend and confidant. I will love you forever my sweet girl❤

Ginger

To My Sweet Ginny, In October, 2010, we found each at the perfect time. You were a third time rescue, and were looking to still find your forever home. I saw you were hurt and abandoned through those big, beautiful eyes, and you needed someone to love and enjoy your sweet, gentle and sometimes mischievous ways. I, too, was in the process of reinventing my life, and I needed a best friends to walk beside me in my new life. It was you, sweet girl. Your mere presence and puppy purrs got me through the challenging moments and subsequent loneliness during those years.

I don’t know how I could have done it without you. My motto had become “Mother and Pup Forever”! It was a privilege to be your mommy, to love you, buy you Halloween costumes, your squeaky toys, and of course, Milk Bones and “Chicky-Meatballs”. I loved our quiet nap times, and still feel your warm little head tucked under my chin when you slept. How you kept me warm… I especially loved sitting beside you on the glider in the garage overlooking the street and our front yard. Remember how you laid down in the mud after that heavy rain by the river? I have that picture of you with you muddy belly and feet! You knew how to make me laugh… You are my girl, and you have taken my heart with you. You were a strong little pup, and even with your illness almost made it to 16 years old. Know my sweet baby, that I feel you beside me just as you always were, and I know we will be together again someday. Please look for me… I will always love you, and you will always be My Sweet Ginny Dog. Love, Mommy❤

Daisy

I cannot find the words to memorialize or pay tribute to Daisy. Her existence in my life was a blessing truly beyond anything I expected or deserved.

Sterling

Sterling was the most amazing friend I have ever had. He was with me through so much. He crossed the bridge on March 4th, 2021. He was almost 11 and 1/2 years old. The one thing I am thankful for about COVID 19 is that I was able to be with him 24/7 the last year of his life. I still have no clue how he was able to fit his giant tongue in his mouth. I loved him almost as much as he loved me. Saying goodbye was the hardest thing I have ever had to do, but I do know it was time. He told me. He will always be in my heart, and will never be forgotten. Rest easy sweet boy. Sterling Croskey October 16, 2009 – March 4, 2021

Keegan the Comforter

First named Keegan the Fierce, he came to us at 13 years old, having been with two other families…the first as a pup where he was the Comforter to his human mom when her husband died tragically in an accident and mom had to work long hours then and made the hard decision to rehome Keegan at 11. The second home with an elderly couple who had owned Irish Terriers all their lives where he was the Comforter to his new Dad as he struggled with the onset of Dementia until new mom was diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer. So he came to us and our son fell in love with him and took him to his heart and home until our son was also diagnosed with inoperable cancer! And so Keegan came to us, with our son, his dad, and he became OUR comforter when our son passed away. We loved him and cared for him and took him everywhere with us…he especially loved camping! At age 16 years, 4 months, our sweet old man went into kidney failure and we told him it was our turn to comfort him, his work was done and he could go to be with those who crossed over before him. We loved him so much and will miss him forever but we will see you again one day, when it is our turn. Until then we say “Well done, good and faithful Keegan the Comforter!”

Chumley

Chumley was 10 years old when we had to say goodbye. At the end of his years, he suffered from Canine Cognitive Dysfunction. It was very hard to see our best friend go through this. He was the best dog we’ve ever had and is missed tremendously. We’ll love you forever!

Annabelle came into our lives when she was 8 weeks old. She was a loving sister to her kitty sisters and gladly took on the role of big sister when I became a mother.

Vinny

Vinny brightened up our lives for about thirteen years. Truly a special pet, he was always around to keep you from feeling lonely. He wasn’t one for attention and loved his naptime, but he remained a faithful companion, especially to his family. His favorite pastimes included lying in the sun, chasing after the neighborhood squirrels, taking naps, and guarding grandma. We are sad that he is with us no longer, but we are grateful that he is suffering no more because Vinny deserves nothing but the best. He will remain in the hearts of friends and family forever and we are all so glad that we took him into our family and got to spend the time we shared together.

Murphy

Murphy was a character that truly made everyday with him special! Not a day goes by we don’t miss his goofiness and his loving eyes that would look into your soul! Rest in peace Murphy boy, you were so strong all the way to the end, our super dog!
