customer testimonials

Thank you so much for your care and understanding of our family pet, Lady. You all went beyond the call of duty. Lady was rescued from an abusive home at fourteen months old and we gave her the love a dog should have during her twelve years with our family. Her life ended with comfort and love. You all contributed to a comfy, smooth transition as she climbed the stairway to doggie heaven.”
