Isabella "Izzi" Weber


This is where Izzi was the happiest. They say bulldogs can’t swim. …….. Izzi could. She would stay in the pool all day if we’d let her. She would stand on her raft for hours catching tennis balls without loosing her balance. Can you see her smiling? That’s the face we’ll never forget โค๏ธ

 

 

 

Zoe Blankenship


My sweet precious girl!
Peacefully at rest.
Zoe was a rescue. As a tiny kitten she was left behind in the street to die. Through the kindness of foster humans, she survived and then was put up for adoption. She had lived in a kennel all her young life until we adopted her. Precious. A polydactyl crossed eyed little girl! Her fur family, siblings, Ginger and Maggie. Her humans, my husband Carter and I. She always was a big purr box playful and interested in all what was going on around her. 2020, she was the lone survivor of the house. She and I battled with our losses, Covid and the sale of our home. Together Zoe and I sold the house, packed and bought a new forever home. Zoe listened to me and I to her. My constant companion. Such an angel. 2021 we adopted Onyx, another rescue. She had the joy of this fur ball growing up. Zoe’s age 16 and a rather large tumor in her left paw never stopped her from enjoying her home, her humans, and Onyx. She was peacefully released of her earthly body by Peaceful Pet Passage. I am ever so grateful for their love and passion for Zoe and myself. A brilliant coral rose marks her grave in my yard. Her spirit runs free. No other love like a catโค๏ธ๐Ÿพ

Nicky Geppi


Nicky was so incredibly kind hearted and sweet to everyone; he never met a stranger. He was born special needs, he was a hydro kitty, only given a few months to live at 4 weeks old. He lived to be 13 years old. He was a huge fan of cuddling and giving kisses to anyone that would receive them. He loved to eat, truly. Nicky would eat anything and everything, always sampling food to make sure it was up to standard. Lol….He had a very odd meow, and he was extremely vocal, letting you know he was there, and to please give him a pat on the head, or a kiss. Nicky made sure everyone knew they were loved and important to him constantly. There was only one of him, because he was one of a kind. There has never been a more gentle, loving soul. We love you sweet boy! We will see you again one day Nicky.

 

Heinz Ellenberger


Sweet Heinz
Loved hanging out and chilling with us, our dog and our friends and their dogs. He was a lover! His favorite toys were empty toilet paper rolls. He would bat them all through the house and then lay on them so the dog couldn't get them.โ˜บ We love you and miss you Heinz.

 

 

 

 

Nixon Bartholomew


Nixon was such a wonderful cat. Super sweet personality, used to actually play fetch with my hair ties, would chatter at birds in window feeder and loved sitting near the open windows in the spring. She was originally a buddy to my older cat who had also passed and great companion to our German Shorthaired Pointer. She will be missed so much.

 

 

Zoey Dodge


Zoey was a cuddle bug who loved being with her humans and lounging in the sunshine. She came to us 14 years ago as a feral 3 month old kitten. Over the next few months she came to love hanging out with her humans and her feline companion Moe. She is dearly missed!

 

 

 

 

Pixie Ross


On July 25, 2022, just a month shy of her 17th birthday, we said goodbye to our sweet Pixie. I had Pixie for half of my entire life and all of my adult life since I was 19. Born on August 31, 2005, Pixie was the happiest, sweetest, friendliest Chihuahua. For 2 years, she was a therapy dog for KPETS, where she spent time every week with nursing home residents and the Dementia/Alzheimers wing that absolutely adored her and looked forward to her visits. Pixie also made visits to schools, rehabs, and libraries where children practiced reading to her. Pixie’s favorite things to do were playing with all of her favorite stuffed toys, playing fetch with her tiny tennis balls, wrestling with her Chihuahua siblings, tattling on anyone who broke the house rules, racing around from room to room, and of course spending hours sleeping in blankets or on our laps. Pixie’s most notable features were her extremely long tongue that always stuck out and her little piggy snort noises which earned her the nickname Miss Piggy (among many other names). During Pixie’s final 5 months, she lost enough mobility that she became dependent on me to take her to her potty pads and help her stand steady for food and water. She had different barks to let me know each of her needs, and it will take quite some time for me to adjust to a life where I’m not her 24/7 caregiver, checking on her every 2 hours. In the very end, Pixie began to shut down, giving me the gift of knowing it was time without hesitation or agonizing over a decision, and trusting us to get her safely to peace. Pixie is sorely missed by so many that knew her in person, from pet therapy visits, and even just from the adorable photos on social media. While there will never be another Pixie in our life, she will live on forever through the great memories she gave us all. We love you and miss you oh so much Pixie. Losing you has left a hole in our hearts that can never be filled, but we know without that hole, we never would have known you at all.

Kane Breski


7/06/2006 - 7/22/2022
Kane was the best fur baby we had. He was gentle, best temperament, didn’t know a stranger. Loved to go for car ride. Our heart and home feeling the loneliness without Kane.

 

 

 

Taylor Mae Wallet Jordan


February 15, 2009-July 21, 2022
It was 13 years and 3 months ago we brought this precious little puppy to our home in PA from a foster home in DE! We named her after Sean Taylor of the Washington Redskins! Not only was she super smart and beautiful being a mixed German Shepherd, Chow and Golden she was the most loyal dog anyone could ask for! For 13 years she was by my side and protected me! She was my everything! I knew this day would come and I really thought I was prepared! WRONG!!! ๐Ÿ’” I’m numb! Peaceful Pet Passage made this heart wrenching process so much better for all! Thankfully Stuart Polansky was here with me too! I couldn’t have done it without him ๐Ÿ’!

 

 

Brodie Peters


January 9, 2008-June 20,2022
Brodie never met a stranger! He loved children and was always ready to lay on a lap! He enjoyed camping with his Mom and had his own chair, because you know he was a person and could not sit on the ground around a camp fire. His camping buddies were forever sneaking him hotdog and steak treats! He had many people who loved him and would argue over doggy sitting him! He loved his bunny that he slept with from the time he came to us as a baby until he left us. He will be forever missed but never forgotten! Thank you to all who came to visit him and say goodbye.

Stella Falk


Stella was our sweet cat who loved her evening field trips outside. We miss her company and how she liked to harass the dogs. RIP sweet girl.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Maya Falk


Maya had terrible breath. She stank, itched, and barked. She bit if you picked her up and she ran away. She was terrible on a leash, cost us money, cost us sleep and had a goopy eye. Maya was always under our feet and not good with strangers. She sometimes peed in the house. But we loved her, miss her terribly, and are sad and broken hearted that our time with her is over.

 

 

 

 

Shiloh Goulart


In 2004 our family moved to York from Maryland. Our 11 year son had just left all his friends behind and it was decided that having a puppy to keep him company until he could make new friends would be a good idea. So we rescued a beagle mix puppy from a pound nearby. She was only about 2 weeks old and had been taken into the facility after having been found as a stray. We adopted her and took her home. Our son named her Shiloh. Shiloh came equipped with a terrible case of Mange, which had caused the fur on half of her body to fall off. She was actually a pretty pitiful sight. When my husband came home and saw this sorry excuse for a puppy, he asked us if we had lost our minds. As time progressed, due to the fact that Shiloh had joined a family that enjoyed camping and travelling, Shiloh became a very well travelled dog. She has been as far North as Maine, where she toured Acadia National Park, and as far south as Florida, where she toured Everglades National Park, and as far west as Texas. She also spent time in Shenandoah National Park, the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Assateague National Seashore and many other places. Shiloh was also known for her education. While our sons were in college and in Law School and Grad School, Shiloh could be found laying next to our boys while they studied with her head resting on them in such a way that she appeared to be reading the textbook herself. When our son graduated law school, Shiloh was said to have been the world's first Legal Beagle. In 2012 we tragically lost our oldest son. Because of Shiloh's calm demeanor she was able to be of great comfort to our family at a time when it was desperately needed. Shiloh always had the ability to know when someone was having a difficult time throughout her life. She naturally had the ability to calm and comfort anyone who was distressed. She was very instrumental in our family getting through that terrible ordeal. It was not until the day after Shiloh had been put to sleep that we looked up the meaning of the name Shiloh. It has two meanings, first is Gift of God, and the second is Peaceful One. There is no way our son could have picked a more fitting name for the puppy he got all those years ago.

Jenny & Kyra Rolon


They will be truly missed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sully Meckley


It didn't matter how cold it was outside, Sully loved being out in the snow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oliver Jarman


On July 16th, 2022 we lost our sweet boy Oliver. Words can't describe how much we miss him. His sister's miss their cuddle buddy and his brother misses him chasing him away when someone is eating. We miss hearing you snore. It's the silence that makes it more heartbreaking. We will forever cherish the memories we made with him over the past 14 years. Thank you again Peaceful Pet Passage for making this process easier for all of us.

 

 

 

Dezilu Nelson


Our beloved cat, Dezilu, left us on June 24, 2022 to join his canine sister MooMoo in pet heaven. He wandered into our lives as a stray cat taken in by our daughter Jessica. He was an indoor cat from then on. He loved being around people and when we got MooMoo as a puppy he bonded with her instantly. They were buddies until her death 14 years later. He was a good boy who loved to cuddle and purr with all of us, sleeping under a blanket and sunning himself at the deck glass door.
He will be forever missed.

 

Riley Chambers


We had to say good-bye to our sweet boy, Riley, at age 16. He basically grew up alongside our children. He was a sweet boy, as long as no speck of silver showed through in his food bowl! He was a rescue from West Virginia. He was the runt of the litter, but he grew so big that we used to kid about having a DNA test to see if he had some wild cat in him. RIP Riley. We still look for you when we walk into “your room”. Enjoy your time over the rainbow bridge until we meet again.
Don’t speak unless you can improve the silence. - John Lennon

 

 

 

 

Indiana Goetz


Indiana-12.5 half years of the very best times! My loyal handsome boy it’s not goodbye, just until we meet again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bert Wolaver


On December 18, 2011, BERT was adopted into our home, and captured into our hearts. He loved his forever family, as much as we loved him, and will for eternity be very special to us. We believe Bert traveled an estimated 15,000 miles in the back seat of our vehicles, including four times on road-trips across the country. He loved every mile, traveling with his family. But he mostly enjoyed his daily "walking adventures", whether to explore his surroundings, bark at the rabbits, sniff at a new scent, meet other dogs (and people), or simply finding the right "wee wee" spot. Every day, he loved to go out on a golf cart ride near his home. He even enjoyed his own bicycle "dog cart", and the occasional rides in the country.
People who knew Bert, loved him for his unique temperament. He was always friendly towards everyone, even strangers, while those who knew him, often lovingly described his Schnauzer stubbornness, unique personality, pleasant patience, and occasional sense of desiring his own way. His least favorite time of year was the loud noises of July 4th, when we would cuddle with him on the sofa, turn the TV/music volume up, and just make him feel secure in our arms. In recent years, BERT loved to take long naps, but was always "front-and-center" for his next feeding.
We are blessed with the certainty that on July 12, 2022, at 9:30 am, BERT became a living (no longer sick) eternal doggie park resident. GOD'S WORD says that "HE preserves the animals", so with that promise, we know our dearly loved (and sadly missed) BERT is in his eternal home.
Thank you to the staff at Peaceful Pet Passage, for walking with us through this valley of sorrow, for the dignity and love you conveyed to us, and especially the tender and loving care shown to BERT.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL

Kada Weigel


In loving memory of Kada Weigel April 23, 2007 to July 9, 2022, our “Pennsylvania” Puggle
Kada was our namesake Ka for Kathy, da for Dave. I will never forget the day we met. You, in the back of the kennel, pushing yourself through all your brothers and sisters. I said, I think that one wants to see us. I bent down, you reached the front, you gave me a kiss and I knew you were the one, the runt of the litter, all 4 pounds of you. You were full of life, energy and personality from the day you entered our lives until the day you left us. When you were diagnosed with kidney disease, I was told with diet change and meds, maybe a year. I told you we were going to fight the battle and beat the odds, we did for almost 4 years. I was so glad you were still allowed your veggies in your kidney diet because there wasn’t a veggie you wouldn’t eat…my “veggie” girl!
The day you had to leave, you laid on the floor, I sat on the chair, you looked at me and I said, “today we have to part, I don’t want it to be but we must, for now, so you don’t have pain/suffering.” I told you, “I would handle the suffering of saying goodbye because I didn’t want you to ever hurt.” You stared at me the whole time I talked and somehow, I feel, we made peace with our separating.
Your last ride, you sat on my lap and I did something I had never done with you, I opened the window and told you, “feel the wind in your face and smell all the smells.” I’ve seen others do this but I always wanted to protect you. I wanted to make your last ride, a “joy ride.”
We reached your final destination, you walked inside, you seemed calm and relaxed, you didn’t bark, at all, while we sat in the room, you always barked, we could never get you to stop, EVER! I feel telepathically somehow you were letting me know the hard decision I had made was for the best and you were ok with it. We had a lot of that telepathic goings on in our 15 years together, why would today be any different.
They gave you something you had never had before, a Hershey’s kiss, you sniffed it and walked away. They said, Kada you are being a good girl to the end. And, you were, always!
I am so glad we took you to the beach in May because you loved it there. I now have all the memories and adventures we shared, tucked in my mind and heart. And, I have my hand with your paw in it, the last picture we shared together…connected forever, until I meet you at Rainbow Bridge. I miss you tremendously! ๐Ÿ’”

Pumpkin Rickards


My precious and sweet Pumpkin. Even though your time with me was brief, having rescued you just a year and a half ago you filled my life with love. You were the sweetest and most loving boy and so brave until the end. I will forever miss you and will see you again at the Rainbow Bridge. I miss you so much.

 

 

 

Mhysa Fullam


The hardest part of having a pet is the day you have to say goodbye.
Our Mhysa was a fighter so young, having puppies when she was still a puppy herself. Then she was abandoned with her babies on the back side of Mount Rainier, Washington. Soon after, she rescued us, and later fought IMHA twice. So this time when she got sick and then the tumor was found, it was devastating how quickly and completely she declined. We only had 8 years with her, but 8 years with a loving and loyal companion is definitely better than none. She loved us and our kids completely. The thought of the house without her is heartbreaking, but watching her in pain is just as bad.

 

Buddy Woodrow


Buddy protected his family and his yard!!! He loved being outside in his yard. Buddy was a great brother to his three younger brothers Teddy, Archie and Roscoe as well as his younger sister Abby… He will be deeply missed and never forgotten… Love always, your human pack (family)

 

 

 

 

 

Scampy Curtis


You recently helped us lay our beloved 16 year old cat Scampy to rest. No family could ever ask for a sweeter, more well behaved pet. We have been blessed to have had Scampy in our lives. Always one for routine naps and feeding, she also would approach us with a sing-songy meow and shoulder roll on to her back, indicating petting and love need to ensue ๐Ÿ’™ Purring was always in order..... Thank you again for your kind assistance during our challenging goodbye and Scampy's send off to the rainbow bridge to reunite with Shadow and Sparky. ๐Ÿ™ The Curtis Family

 

 

 

Kanie Quintana


Kanie was my sweet baby. A lot of people was afraid of him but he was only protecting me. I’m so sad that he left me. I can’t believe that he is gone. My heart is broken. I miss you so much Kanie.

Ziggy Siegrist


Sadly, on July 2nd(2022), I lost my 13 year old Lab to cancer. Honestly, he had the best life ever! He was silly and loving and spoiled! I’m heartbroken but I know he is at peace. Thank you to Dr. Morgan who peacefully helped Zig cross the Rainbow Bridge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Red Muth


In Memory of Red
Our sweet boy passed away June 28th(2022). We loved him with all our hearts and will miss his silly face and his goofy personality. He was the most loyal, easy going and best puppers anyone could have asked for. He was always super friendly to everyone he met and always put smiles on our faces. He was always there to greet us when we came home. We know he is no longer in pain and that he is laying on his favorite blanket in the sun in heaven. Love you always bubbers. Rest in peace our sweet Red.

 

 

 

Sassy Cohen


Our sweet Sassy who was partially blind and deaf, who had dementia and third stage kidney failure, crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Monday, June 27th, 2022. My husband and I rescue senior Chinese Crested dogs. Sassy was our fourth Chinese Crested and our third senior rescue. She was my shadow, as she followed me everywhere. Run free pretty girl. Your memory will always be a blessing. We love you.๏ฟผ ♥๏ธ๐Ÿพ

Sadie Hestor


Today(6/27/2022) we had to put down our beloved Sadie(Sissy). She was diagnosed with carcoma cancer on her back which has grown near the size of a softball in a month. We had a great day and she got to do what she loved to do right up to her passing. She had a super peaceful passage right here at her home. Her head on my lap and her paw on her dad's arm. So at peace! We owed her that honor. Rip u lil hog hunter! We will see ya later! This pic is from earlier in the day and even though she was in pain she still wanted to hunt hoggers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bella Thoman


Bella was our everything. She was a prima donna who loved being dressed up for the neighborhood. In fact, for Halloween, she and I would dress up alike. She loved kids and all the attention they gave her. She was one of the four-legged favorites at the campground as well as the home neighborhood. Bella loved her groomer who she saw every four weeks. We made sure she had her hair pulled up on to the top of her head so she could see since her hair was long. She is surely missed by us and everyone who knew her.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finn Wolgemuth


Finn was a senior dog when I met him, but we bonded quickly. We both enjoyed the outdoors. We both looked forward to mealtime. We both suffered from mild arthritis. We both loved chasing rabbits. (No wait--that last was just Finn.) He was a wonderful companion to grow old with.
Thank you, Finn for sharing the last part of your life with me. You are missed. โค๏ธ

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nikki Sipe


I would like to thank you for your services on June25th, 2022 on helping our old girl Nikki pass over the rainbow Bridge. She was born Nov 26th, 2009 and passed peaceful with your help on June 25th, 2022. I thank you from the bottom of my โค๏ธ

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rosco Mallein


6/25/2022 was one of the hardest days of our lives. We said goodbye to my heart dog, Rosco. He was the most loyal family dog ever. The 11 years we got with him surely doesn't seem like enough but he was so ready to go over the rainbow bridge and being selfish to have him here longer wasnt fair to him. He gave this family a joy that will never be replaced. We can't thank PPP enough for making the worst day somewhat easier. R.I.P Rosco you will always have your paw prints on our hearts.

 

 

 

Alyx Taylor


I lost my best buddy and pal Alyx or as I called him BooBoo on 6/21/2022. He was 13 years old. He and his sisters were abandoned on the property of a friend whether by the momma cat or a human no one knows. My friend was in her late 90's and not capable of caring for them so I took them in. I found a wonderful home for his two sisters and we ended up keeping Alyx. They were about 4 weeks old at the time. Alyx was the smallest weighing only 8 oz. but he never hesitated to let everyone know who was boss. I miss him terribly, the little things like his sad little eyes. He used to get on the counter when I would come home to see what I brought him. He was always with me when I would sit down to watch tv, work on the computer or read the paper. I miss the little head butts when I wasn't getting his canned food fast enough or if I was in another room when he wanted to eat, he would start knocking stuff off the counter. At night he slept above my head. Even though I have 3 other cats my house is so silent. I guess Alyx was the life of the party! Alyx lost his life to a very aggressive, fast moving stomach cancer. It happened so fast that I am stunned. About a month before he died he had his yearly at the vet. Blood work, everything was normal with nothing being detected at that time. He had no symptoms of cancer. He started being picky with food to the point that I took him back to the vet. She felt some swollen lymph nodes but could not at that time extract cells to do testing. He got some meds and bounced back. We took him off the meds and things went back to the same. This time the vet could feel a large mass in his abdomen. He started to decline rapidly. He lived only 5 days after his last vet visit. For me the most difficult and sadist part is the final journey for drop off to be cremated knowing that you will never see that little face again. He was in a lot of pain. He is now pain free and happy somewhere over the Rainbow Bridge. I miss you buddy!

Mollie Minnick


Mollie was a very spoiled dog from 6 weeks old to 15 yrs. We picked her up at a shelter in OC and it was the happiest day of our lives. Neighbors fell in love with her as much as we loved her. They would bring her treats when they didn’t have a dog, our mail lady would give her a treat and a rub when she delivered our mail. She would hear the ice cream man’s music coming from 3 blocks away and would race to the front door to let me know the ice cream man was coming and she would run out to the truck and stand up at his window and bark telling him what she wanted. When we went on vacation and had a dog sitter and the ice cream man would get out of his truck and put a cup of vanilla ice cream inside the fence for her. She saw all the grandchildren through crawling and walking and loved having them. Always happy to see the kids. Jumped up in bed with me when the door closed behind the hubby going to work. He never knew she slept with her head on his pillow. It was one of the hardest days in our life to say goodbye to her and we are both broken hearted. You will forever be in our hearts and on our mind. We love you Mollie and miss you more than we can describe โค๏ธ

Alfie Weaver


Alfie was a good cat. Came to us at 10 weeks old. He was laid back and a lover. Adjusted to every change and just wanted attention from everyone all the time. He turned 15 this year. And slowed down significantly. He will be missed by me, my kids and grandkids. He was a good cat.

 

 

 

Noona Shuff


Thank you again for helping us as we said goodbye to our Noona. She was a feral kitten found abandon on a military base in Georgia in the spring of 2007 where I worked as an Arabic linguist. A friend of mine with experience in hand raising kittens took her in from the on base vet, and planned to keep her. I helped hand raise her as both my friend and my husband were deployed at the time. My friend felt that animals should earn their names so that it fit. So for several months Noona was just kitten. My friend eventually decided to get divorced and move home, but wasn't sure taking Noona was a good idea. She left Noona with me so I could find her a good home. I never did find another home for her as she just became part of the family. I honored my friend's wish and let Noona earn her name. She would climb up my leg to get to the bowl when I was filling it with food, she could chase a laser almost the whole way up a wall. She was crazy and as such earned the full name Bajoona Majnoona which crazy kitty in an Arabic dialect. We ended up calling her Noona for short. Over 15 years I have so many memories that now make me smile and cry. I remember her snuggling my pregnant belly when I was pregnant with my children. I remember her being terrified of ceiling fans for months when we moved into our first home. I remember how she terrorized our friends' cats when they watched her because she was so full of energy and just kept wanting to play. One of my favorite memories of her was how excited she was while riding int the back of our car on the way from Georgia to Texas. I put up netting and let her roam the back so she could eat, drink, and use the litter box as needed. She loved watching out the window and bounced back and forth from window to window. I will always remember her loud rumbling purr that you could hear from the next room and how while we were in Germany she would force all of our friends to love on her. From a quiet skittish cat she blossomed into a cuddly, loving girl. We will miss her so much.

Rocky Heisey


On June 21,2022 4:45pm. My handsome boy Rocky, pure bred boxer, was laid to rest in my home. I rescued him from a broken home at the age of 1 in July 2015. He was very fit and full of energy. He didn't like men, I rescued him when my husband was out of town and when he came home, Rocky would not let him in the house. It was a rough start and I almost re-homed him for being aggressive. But he soon found out he was loved by all, and he LOVED everyone! He loved being outside, especially hanging out with the neighbor dog, an English bulldog named Daisy! He loved her! He loved my grand children and protected them. He loved treats and loved to eat. And most of all he was very spoiled!

 

 

Pumpkin Johnson


Pumpkin was a faithful companion right to the end. He will be missed immensely.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Abbey Heckert


We weren’t looking for a third dog but there she was this cute yellow puppy alone at the park. We were at a picnic and it was getting dark and no one came for her. So we took Abbey home and she became part of our pack. She was fiercely independent and let her fur brothers and sister know she was the queen bee. Her favorite pass time was playing with the carpenter bees in the yard. We will forever be grateful that she came into our lives. 6/7/2022

 

 

 

Sparky Smeriglio


In memory of our sweet, stoic Sparky.
Thank you for giving our family 13 years of pure love. We miss you so much.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bug Schmidt


Bug was much more than our furry family companion. He was the steady center of a family that was anything BUT steady. He was the much-needed constant in a home that endured nothing but change. In many ways he kept us going. This is the story of how he helped us, and why we were so blessed to help him in return, when his journey was completed: https://timetravelsandtribulations.com/our-dog-bug-journeyed-joyfully-all-the-way/

 

 

 

 

 

 

Miss Foxy Zielinski


I grew up reading Tasha Tudor books and loved her magical stories featuring Corgis so when I bought my first house on my own I was fortunate enough to stumble across and ad for Welsh Pembroke Corgi puppies in my area. Seeing all of those tiny fur balls running around made it hard to choose one but I had no intentions of breeding so I asked for the smallest one. Miss Foxy was not only the smallest but had the biggest attitude and that never changed, she was always small for a full grown Corgi and even with larger dogs in the house she was undeniably the boss lady. She would bark when we'd come home and when we'd go outside and when it was dinner time her commanding bark would rouse the rest of the household into a frenzy. It has been terribly quiet since her passing, the other animals and I miss her dearly. It was time of course to let her go, at 16 years of age she had certainly lived a long, full and adventurous life with us and we could ask no more of her. Her back legs started to show weakness some years earlier and we made accomadations , the past few months though she was starting to show signs of front leg weakness and her daily living and quality was suffering so we knew it was time. She didn't like her vets much anymore after she had repeated procedures to fix a scratch on her eye so I really hated the thought of the vets office and techs being her last memory and my last memory of her. I made the call to Peaceful Pet Passages and set her appointment for two days later which gave me time to make her favorite foods and show her some extra attention. Our house is chaotic so I chose to have the procedure done at the Mechanicsburg location. It's such a beautiful facility and the vet was very calm and not at all rushed, the whole thing was nothing short of peaceful. I picked up her cremains a few days later and the presentation is really beautiful. I'm planning to use the beautiful box to store some objects that were her's as her ashes have been placed under a rose bush called Grace and Grit which was a suitable name for such a lovely and cantankerous lady.

Tommy Peters


On behalf of the Peters family, we would like to thank Peaceful Pet Passage and Dr. Elser for taking such good care of our boy during his last hour.
We rescued Tommy in 2007. He was about 7 months old when he joined our family. Tommy was a sweet, silly, loving, smart, bossy boy! He loved cuddling on your lap, sitting on the back porch and going on boat rides. He was always ready to snuggle or play. Our sons grew up with him. We have so many wonderful memories. Rest easy little buddy. You are in our hearts forever!

Charlie Banazsek


Charlie was way more then a pet for us he was a part of our family. He was my boy, he was my first kid ( I always tell my kids that). He was my protector and such a integral part of our family. We had 11 wonderful years with him but not nearly enough. Charlie loved his stuffed animal baby and wood sleep him, he also loved to hide bones and special treats out in the yard. He had the best smile if we were gone for a long day or returning home from a long weekend he would give us the hugest grin like I have never seen on a dog I just know that his heart was so happy with us. I am so thankful for peaceful pet passage it was such a beautiful thing to be able to surround him in his last moments just loving and petting him well he enjoyed being out in the yard with us. โค he will forever be in our hearts and the memories will stay so close to us.

 

Boo Kitty Music


Boo kitty was dropped in our lap when my mother suffered a stroke and could no longer care for her. Not being cat people we halfheartedly accepted Boo into our home. Of course the first thing we did was change her name from Honey Bunny to Boo Kitty. After a week we feel in love with her. The more she grew close to us the more we spoiled her. She became a wonderful cuddle partner, companion and light on a bad day. We will miss her greatly. Side note…Thank you for all your assistance and professional manner you walked us to the end.

 

 

 

Taylor Coble


I want you to know how genuinely glad I am that you exist, and took such wonderful care of my girl- allowing her to go pain free and with me there. I had her since she was 5 weeks old, and she passed at 14. She was very sick, and I knew it was time. We were one another's only home companion for the last 7 years- she was truly my everything. Her name is Taylor, laughingly known by all as Princess Elizabeth Taylor Jane Coble The Fig, affectionately know as The Fig or Figgy. I loved her more than anything- she passed on 6/4/22 and it took me all of this time to get up the courage to write this and pick a photo from the millions on my phone. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for the most wonderful service that you provide.

 

 

Duke Mayberry


How do you describe something you love so much in just a few short sentences? How do you choose just one picture to represent a lifetime of love? My husband said he wanted a dog that would look like it would eat you if you came on the property and were not welcome. We got that in Duke; but little did strangers know - Duke loved everyone once you came inside. Inside there were no strangers, only new friends he could get lots of pets and treats from. We were lucky enough to have Duke for 9 years, we brought him home just a few months after we bought our house. He was such a big part of our family and now the house is so different without him. Duke was my husband's first dog and his best friend, and to say he is broken without him is an understatement. They were like two grumpy old men always grumbling to each other. Our youngest son is 11 now and they grew up together, chasing each other around the house like crazy little beings on a mission. Our other dog Ellie, who is anxious and very submissive, is so lost without her "big brother" to follow around. We always called him our big, dopey boy because he was just that. He would look at you with his giant head, and his one ear that was much smaller than the other, and you just felt loved by him. He could scare an unsuspecting person walking on the sidewalk and convince them to cross the street with his bark, he could clear a room in 10 seconds flat from one of his "rottie farts," and he could melt your heart when he rolled on his back for belly rubs with his big paws flailing in the air. Duke got sick very quickly, in a matter of 4 days we went from "okay," to this point where we had to say goodbye so suddenly. It's been a few weeks now and I still can't decide if it was easier because we didn't have to watch him suffer for a long time, or if it's harder because we weren't prepared to let him go. All the thoughts run through your head - we didn't take him on enough walks, or car rides, or give him enough treats or pets - but the truth is he was so very loved. We are a family of 6, there was always someone to give him all the love. My husband keeps saying we won't ever find another dog like him, and he's right, because like people all dogs are different. We will continue to love Ellie and maybe love another dog again later in life, but they won't be our Dukey-boy. We will forever miss him. They are all good dogs, aren't they? But it's soul crushing when it's yours.

Haylie Webb


Haylie came to us over the 4th of July in 2012 and what a great adventure we had together. Haylie was a blessing to our family. She enjoyed being outside and playing in the snow in the winter. We quickly learned that she loved her human's food and as many treats as she could get. She had times where she would go outside, turn around, come back in and stare at the treat box just waiting and then drooling for her treat. During the pandemic she was Judy's constant companion and work buddy while Marc went into his office. She would lay beside Judy and wait for lunch, she knew she would get half of whatever Judy made. Even when her back hips started to hurt, she kept on going, playing with her toys and wanting to play tug. At the end, Haylie knew it was too hard to go up the steps to bed, so she had a new bed in the kitchen where she could see Judy and Marc first thing when they came downstairs. The hardest thing was knowing that her quality of life was not like it should be and helping her cross over that Rainbow Bridge. We know she is in Heaven playing fetch and running freely. We miss her with all of our hearts and that is where she will always live.

Lucky Garcia


Our favorite hello and hardest goodbye. We love you Lucky forever.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chloe Standiford


We took Chloe in when she was 9 months. She needed a home and I didn’t want her going to a shelter. She was a ‘crazy Lab’ who ultimately became my ‘sweet girl’. I will fondly remember her following me everywhere, including when I would vacuum. I miss the thumping of your tail when I would pet you. I will always love you. You’re forever in my heart and I hope I will see you again. Chloe was my ‘sweet girl’. She was a handful when we got her at 9 months, so much so I wondered if she’d ever settle down, but she did. Crazy Lab thing. I will miss your tail thumping when I would pet you. I miss you so much already. I will never forget you. You are forever in my heart and I will see you again.

Cuco Thompson


Until we meet again my best friend. Always in my heart and never forgotten. Thank you.

 

 

 

 

Madison Self


This is a picture of our Madison taken on March 29, 2015. She was rescued as a puppy in September of 2006. She was a beautiful and gentle girl, strong as an ox, but a bit willful and stubborn at times. In her younger days, she loved to play ball and sail through the air to catch a frisbee. She was truly loved by all and she will be missed. Love you forever Miss M.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Symon Enders


Symon was a 15 year old Australian Shepherd who just loved to play ball and frisbee. He preferred blue balls and frisbees. He was such a "herder" and loved to guard new peeps in the brooder. He devotion and love will be missed and never matched.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Daisy Complese


Daisy was born 2-19-2011. Over the 11 years she was with us, she not only became a well loved member of the family, but also a Service Dog, Therapy Dog and earned her CGC with the American Kennel Club. Daisy had a loving personality, and easily drew people to her. She would lean into hugs, give gentle nudges and preferred to sit on your foot instead of lean against you. She was and amazingly brilliant, helping to train over 1000 puppies and young adult dogs (alongside her human) to be the best dogs. Thank you for helping to keep her memory alive.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nala Ness


Thank you so much for everything you've done for Nala. We gave Nala the best life we could and gave her so much love. We miss her terribly, it’s been a really rough time for us. I will recommend your services to everyone I know, thank you again so much.

 

 

 

Kendall Overmiller


Kendall loved her people! She liked to snuggle, give kisses, sunbathe, and take daily walks. Kendall was very gentle and patient with our daughters and other children. Kendall beat cancer six years ago when we were told she may only have nine months to live. We will never forget when she was a pup and she would get the "zoomies" and run all around the house, bouncing off the furniture.
Kendall was loved and will be deeply missed by all who crossed her path. She was the most loving, sweet, loyal, and affectionate dog, we have ever met. Love you, sweet girl!

 

 

 

 

Bella Wise


We lost our sweet Bella on May 5th, 2022. Our hearts are broken, we miss her dearly. She was the sweetest Puggle ever, very attached to her Mommy. She loved Car rides, food and treat’s she never could get enough off. Her Sister Katie loved her too, she was Bella’s little shadow. You will be so missed my sweet love, I will never forget you. ๐ŸŒˆ Rest In Peace ๐ŸŒˆ

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cadeau Exley


This is Cadeau. His name means gift in French, and he truly was a gift. Cadeau was the sweetest cat I've ever met. I literally never heard him hiss in the whole 18 years he lived with us. When I brought another cat in or a strange human came to visit, he was always the first to greet him/her with "Hi, I'm Cadeau. I love you." He was always a real cuddle bug. We shall miss him terribly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nala Desiderio


Nala was the most loyal and patient companion. Everyone referred to her as my shadow. She followed me everywhere and loved to cuddle. She was so easy going and didn’t have a mean bone in her body. She always made me feel loved and appreciated. I miss her so much and would give anything to hug and kiss her one more time. Rest easy little girl. I love you always.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Samson Stouffer

Howdy Loomis


Our big guy Howdy has moved on. He was with us the last three years of his life after we adopted him from a shelter. Howdy was a mellow older guy who loved to cuddle up, take walks, and naps. He had a distinct personality and was loved by all who knew him. I know he'll have fun in that big grassy field with no fence, and who knows, maybe we'll see each other again.

Sydney Mohney


In loving memory of Sydney
11/01/2008 - 4/30/2022
Sydney was just 3 months old when we rescued her. She decided she would come home with us and not her sister. A mix of sheltie sheep dog and border collie she was definitely a herder by nature. Always trying to round up the kids and family in one room. And she hated it when we were on different floors. She talked to us every morning and whenever we got home. Not barked, but talked. We would have full on conversations. Her most favorite thing to do was chase the squirrels out of the yard and keep guard of the house. She even tried to protect us from animals on the tv. Jumping, barking and trying to get at it. One time my FIL Was watching cowboy and western movies. Cowboys started riding their horses on a chase and Sydney lept into action barking and jumping at the tv until the horses had run out of view. Then she ran to the back of the television to see if she could wrangle them there. She protected us from it all. Barney the purple dinosaur, Jurassic park creatures, scooby doo and the ghost monsters…you name it. She loved us fiercely and we loved her just as hard back. Her arthritis started to really take a toll on her and this once high energy, full of life pup, could no longer chase the squirrels. When they would run across the lawn in front her and she wouldn’t even bat an eye we knew her time had come. We all miss you so much and there will never be another like you. I hope you are chasing squirrels up there and protecting all the people.

Sal Bennawit


Sal gave all of himself to anyone around. He drooled, protected, cuddled, and loved everyone. He was our big boy and we joked about his size and odd sounds saying he must be part dinosaur. But with a huge body came an even bigger heart. He was the most loyal, cuddly, and loving dog I have ever had. We will miss everything about him, even the drool. He has left a big whole in our hearts and home but I am glad that he is no longer in any pain and is running around at the Rainbow Bridge.

 

 

 

Vinny Bradley


Vinny was known as my angel baby... I got him from a rescue in 2010 and he was my sidekick ever since. He was abused as had a bb in his chest from before I got him and he spent the rest of his life traveling with me and exploring all the life changes from my mid 20's into 30's including 4 kids and twins! Vinny was my best friend and meant a lot to everyone in my family. He will be so missed by everyone.

 

 

 

Grace Walter


This beautiful girl graced our presence for 15 years. Originally adopted from a shelter in West Virginia, she moved throughout her life multiple times from Florida, Virginia and finally Pennsylvania. She was the best cat and the reason why our cat family eventually grew. She wanted nothing more than fish-flavored cat food, sleep, pets, sunshine and a sidewalk to roll around on. Although she was pretty easy to appease, if she didn’t have her way, she was persistent and LOUD. She made sure you heard her from any location in the house. If she wanted to be pet, you got a paw to the face. She was a girl who knew what she wanted. If cats can be kind, she was it. She never harmed anyone or anything. She accepted any new cat that came to the house - and there were many. She was a friend to any human and would cuddle and demand pets from anyone. She always made her family laugh especially when she would run. She had many nicknames, including Gracie, Gray Gray, Suckle Pig (suckling - a habit she had since she was a kitten), Snaggle Tooth, and Gray Beard. Her aunt used to joke that she looked and should have been named Tulip because of her sweet and delicate face. It was only fitting that she passed when tulips were at their peak. We love you, Grace. I am sure your brother Jackson was there to greet you. I am so thankful for your calm and consistent presence throughout your life. It’ll take so much time to stop looking for you sleeping peacefully on the bed. The world feels a little less beautiful without you in it. Until we meet again.

Lewy Carado


Lewy joined our family on September 23rd 2018. We rescued him from an emergency hospital where he had received care after being dropped off with a broken leg. Sadly his leg had to be amputated and when no one claimed him, he joined our family! He was a barker!!! He barked at everything and everyone. But he was a snuggler, he loved being held and carried and was so appreciative of anyone's attention. During our four short years together, he experienced many camping trips to Potter county and Knoebels Grove. He went to Dewey Beach, Delaware, Myrtle Beach South Carolina and many places in between. His favorite food was salmon which he enjoyed up to his very last day. He slept in our bed and he will remain in our hearts forever. We miss you so much, Lew-Lew! Thank you for your compassion at the end of Lewys life. He was a happy boy!

Hercules Conway


Our boy rescued us April 27. 2019. He was a Speranza Animal Rescue boy thanks to Jose and Kristy who found him on a Philadelphia shelter kill list and drove there that day (my birthday ironically) to get him and fostered him for Speranza Animal Rescue. Laurie at Speranza suggested we meet Hercules. This boy "had me from hello"! He was the perfect fit for our family. He was my shadow, my protector. He was wonderful with all children he met from newborns and up. He did amazing with every situation we expose him to. He loved car rides, pontoon boating. camping, trail walks (walks in general especially when "his boys and or girls" (our great nephews and or nieces) were holding the leash) But our boy got pretty sick back in February of this year, not eating or drinking normally and then he just stopped eating and drinking. We had to hospitalize him for 2 days. He had lost 20 pounds in just 7 days. Diagnosis was open - lymphoma; chronic inflammatory hepatopathy. We brought him home with meds and planned on loving him until he was no longer comfortable. But he actually bounced back within a couple days. Starting eating bland diet the day we brought him home and eventually got back to his normal 3 meals a day. He put 15 pounds back on and was his normal happy go lucky self. Then about a week ago we started noticing he was losing some weight again, but still eating 3 meals a day until this past Thursday. He just stopped eating and by mid day Friday not drinking, our boy was crashing hard. We called Peaceful Pet Passage and Dr Morgan came to our home Saturday 04/23/22 to help our boy cross the bridge. She was the kindest soul. She took time to show attention and love to Hercules, making him feel comfortable with her. Which spoke volumes to us. She treated us with the utmost respect and kindness. Hercules left his extremely large paw prints on many hearts. Ours are broken, but we like to think this was not good bye, it’s til we see you again. Until then, we have love ones in heaven who welcomed him and the next stage of spoiling began๐Ÿ˜ข.โค๐Ÿพ

Peanut Cordova Estrada


He is with his favorite toys. I called him “my boo”. We will miss him forever and no other dog will ever take his place in our hearts. He was the sweetest dog and funny. He acted bigger than he was. Everyone who met him loved him and made imprint in their lives forever they said. He loved his picture taken he would always pose. He helped me through my divorce and was always by my side. He felt my pain and sadness and knew I needed him.

 

 

 

Hunter Wilson


In Memory of Hunter ๐Ÿ’™
9/12/2012 - 4/22/2022
Our beautiful boy, Hunter, was so loved and spoiled by the entire family. He was our faithful companion until the very end when he was taken way too soon by cancer. We had planned to give him a cupcake before he went to heaven but we weren’t sure if he would eat it as he hadn’t been able to keep anything down. As we started taking the paper wrapper off of the cupcake, he grabbed it and devoured it in one gulp. Paper and all! That is a typical Hunter move that we will never, ever forget, lol! ๐Ÿคฃ We will Iove you forever, sweet boy! We are so thankful for Peaceful Pet Passage and that we had the opportunity to snuggle and kiss Hunter at our home as he passed. They turned a tragic situation into a beautiful memory that we will always treasure. ๐Ÿ’™

Cinnamon Sinopoli


Cinnamon “Buns” Sinopoli crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge, Tuesday April 19th, 2022, peacefully in the arms of her loving father. Cinnamon was born April 6th, 2008. She was rescued by Weimaraner Rescue of the North from a shelter down south in Louisiana where they were not taken good care of. She found her way into her dad’s arms in March of 2016 right before her 8th birthday. This is where she enjoyed the next 6 years of her life of being spoiled, sleeping on the bed and lying on the couch that she claimed as her own. She lived the best life! Cinnamon enjoyed running and hiking with her dad and brother Joe. She would follow her dad everywhere in the house and especially when he was outside mowing the lawn. She never left him out of her sight for too long. Then as she aged and could no longer climb the stairs, she would wait patiently for him as he got ready for work, but if he took too long she would let him know it. She always barked at stranger and friends alike. Every time her dad came home from work, she was there to greet him with the utmost excitement and kisses. She is survived by her brother Barry and her loving dad. She is preceded in death by her brothers Max and Joe. They will be eagerly waiting to great her on the other side. Please give your pets some extra hugs, kisses and treats tonight in honor of my girl, Cinnamon. She will be forever missed. Always and Forever My Girl.

Franco Heffner


Franco was a giant. He was the sweetest little monster puppy that wanted to explore the world and love all. He greeted everyone with the loudest welcome. He loved his walks, his foodies and his daddy. He traveled with us wherever we went. He made the deepest impression on our family and friends. He was loved unconditionally and will be forever missed. His paw prints are permanent across our hearts. We are struggling greatly. He was our Franco.

Sue Scullen


A Boy Named Sue was our family pet for 14 1/2 years. We couldn’t have loved each other anymore. We have thousands of very happy memories with him but this picture captures how he spent most of his life, with his favorite toy which we all called squeaky. He didn’t play with it much after my father died, who was his very best friend. We’re hoping Pop-Pop was waiting for him across the rainbow bridge! We would like to thank Peaceful Pet Passage for making this transition easier for all of us, especially taking the stress away from Sue. With love, the Scullen family

 

 

 

 

 

Tay Stoudt


My baby girl, Tay, always enjoyed going for rides in the car, laying outside on a beautiful, warm, and sunny day. She loved playing tug with her favorite toys. She had this cute little quirk about her where she would shake her head from side to side to when she was happy or excited. She used to make a funny little snorting sound whenever she anticipated something exciting was going to happen. We love you Tay and you will be forever missed and in our hearts. RIP beautiful baby girl. Special thanks goes out to Peaceful Pet Passage for allowing our baby girl to pass peacefully at home without fear or stress. She passed with dignity and respect.

Ali Dolan


This is about beautiful boy Ali. For nearly 13 years he was a very special part of our family. My sister found him running down a country road in 2009 while me and my husband were visiting the same town for our Anniversary. With no shelters open and no one claiming him over that weekend we brought him home back to PA. Our teenage son Patrick was so happy and vowed to help take care of this young, malnourished pup. We made an appointment right away as we knew there might be some risks with his health. The Vet confirmed Ali was 7 weeks old and either got trapped in barbed wire or was used as a bait dog. His stomach was also very swollen from worms, which the Vet told us he wasn’t sure if the medications would be a cure but we brought him home and gave him all the love and care we could. Ali made a full recovery and my son gave him the name “Ali”, after the boxer and because he said he knew he was a fighter and would be ok. Ali and Patrick became the best of friends. Sadly a year and a half later our son was killed at the age of 19 and we soon realized how close they were. We could see Ali was mourning the loss of our son too. So we vowed to take the best care of him for our son and the next 11 years we grew closer to this beautiful boy then we ever imagined. Ali was our family and the connection we felt to our son through him is more than words can convey. Ali had a personality very similar to Patrick and his days became full of adventure. Car rides, trips to the park, to the River, with day trips being his favorite. But home is where Ali loved to be too, playing frisbee and chasing it on our property became his favorite, taking walks, running, laying on the swing while our daughter read to him and soaking up the sun on a warm day. And learning new tricks fast made us realize he was the smartest dog we had ever known. If he wanted to play he was sure to let us know. He would come Over and nudge our arm, or bring his frisbee to let us know he wanted to go out and play. He did that right up until the end of his life. Still taking walks, wanted to run even when his back legs were getting weak and having lung cancer. He was a fighter for sure and although he is missed terribly, we are so grateful a friend referred Peaceful Pet Passages. Our good ole boy had visitors all week and we went for his last car ride April 8th with family and friends coming out to give him hugs and say their goodbyes. We stopped for ice cream, and our daughter had him an early birthday party. We lifted Ali on his favorite swing that afternoon, giving him lots of hugs and kisses while telling him what a good boy he was, that we will miss everything about him and how he truly rescued us. As he fell asleep we told him our son Patrick would be waiting for him and how happy he would be To see his best friend again. We were blessed to have Ali in our lives. Although a part of our hearts went with him, he will always be close to us in spirit and we will continue to share his life, his story and how he truly saved us. Sincerely The Dolan Family and all who loved our beautiful boys.

Axel Reish


Axel, you were the cutest puppy and such an obedient partner. You were always there through thick and thin. You led our pack for years, taught them your crazy bad habits, that we will continue to treasure in the rest of our boys. We will miss yelling your name to get your feet off the counter, searching for your next treat. We will miss all your stinky kisses and farts. We will miss your happy tail always wagging. You introduced us to a whole new world of fun, love and family. You are our original boy who got us involved in dockdogs. We have made so many amazing memories together and we are so happy we got to share them with you. We miss you so much. You are forever our Axel, Bubba Brown and old man. Until we meet again, we love you so much! ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’ฉ

Sadie Troutman


Sadie Willow
8/15/06 - 4/08/22
Sadie was only 4 months shy from her 16th birthday. Some of her nicknames were bugaboo, love bug and Sadie love. We adopted Sadie from the Human Society on 7/01/13. I actually had to pull over on the way home and secure her leash to keep her in the back seat because she kept trying to come up front and just kept licking my face non stop like she was saying thank you, thank you, thank you. I’ve had dogs my whole life and Sadie was the most affectionate of them all. She had to be laying on you or next to you at all times. She loved greeting new people. She loved car rides and walks (although in her older years her arthritis couldn’t take it). She wasn’t a big fan of playing fetch, she would just chew the ball to pieces but her favorite playtime was tug of war. I am so thankful that I was able to spend the last 2 years working from home, by her side. We became even closer. Sadie was my best friend. I believe she was that once in a lifetime (soul dog). She could make me feel so at peace and loved. She got me through some very tough times. I am so thankful for Peaceful Pet Passage. Sadie passed so peacefully in the comfort of our home snuggled with us. We held her until her last breath. Until we meet again my Sadie love. Thank you for choosing us that day. Love you forever and always. ๐Ÿ’•

Murphy had the most gentle disposition of any dog I’ve ever known. He just wanted to play with everyone he met- dogs, cats, ferrets, ponies, sheep, donkeys- it didn’t matter- he’d wag his tail and if they seemed frightened he would lie down and just be with them. I’d find him with kittens asleep on top of him and he wouldn’t move. He went everywhere with me for eight years. He was quiet and shy. He went blind when he was about six but got around well and I loved him dearly. He was all I had and losing him has left a wound that will never heal. I mourn this dog as I mourn for family that I have lost. He was really very special. Rest peacefully my loving friend, Murphy. I miss you so much.

 

 

Annabelle Grace Heffelfinger


I hope it is true that one day I will be reunited with you again! I never thought I would love an animal as much I love you. I had 15 amazing years with you and even that is not enough. You were my bedtime buddy, my co-worker, my tail! It hurts like hell Annabelle Grace. I love you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Buck Wentz


Our sweet boy Buck. One week shy of 11 year old Lab/Rottie mix. He was so loved and well deserved spoiled baby. He loved roaming his 16 acres checking out all areas. Loved his family. โค๏ธ
Thank you for all you did and making this time easier for our sick boy with cancer and us.

 

 

Jackie Cunningham


This is our "baby girl" Jackie. She was a rescue. We had her for 15 years. She was family and we miss her every day. We have so many wonderful memories that we can cherish. Peaceful Pet Passage was a blessing at a very difficult time. We really appreciated their wonderful service.

 

 

 

Butters Harrison


You saved me just as much as I saved you. You’ll be in my heart forever. I love you, Butters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gordon Lockwood


Memories? My kids wanted a dog. A few weeks later, without telling anyone, I went and picked up Gordon. My family was pleasantly surprised! He was great at catching a soft dog frisbee. He loved being outside. He followed my wife everywhere in the house. Needless to say, we really miss Gordon.

 

 

 

 

Cutie Mumford


This is Mr Cutie. He was the sweetest most loving cat any owner could ask for. He was bought as a birthday present for my then 5 year old daughter and was a baby. He loved playing with his toys and sleeping in bed with me to cuddle. He loved playing hide and seek with my daughter and I. We have so many wonderful memories of our amazing Cutie that we will never forget. Thank you to Peaceful Pet Passage for helping us through this difficult decision to lay our beloved Cutie to rest. We will love you forever and always and will never forget you and the impact you had in our lives โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

 

 

Junior Simon


Jr was so loved by everyone. So smart and alway wanted to be with Wendy or me. He always loved his yard, family and friends. We had him for almost 14 years.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Earl Porr


Earl was my sun seeker and my shadow. He loved our long days at the pool. He would lay where ever the sun and I was. He is so missed and so very much loved! So grateful for the kindness from all at Peaceful Pet Passage!!!!

Jasmine Schoenberger


To our dear Jasmine, We will always remember your sweet spirit, love for the outdoors, and passion for adventures. We all watched you grow with our two daughters over these past fifteen years and you made our family complete. You leave behind your best friend Bentley, who will truly miss his sidekick. You have our hearts, always. Thank you again Peaceful Pet Passage for being there for our family! With love, Jess, Paul, Mia and Hannah

 

 

 

Sam Hess


Monday March 21st, 2022 was one of the hardest days for our family. To say that a dog becomes part of your family is an understatement. Our boy Sam was the best dog a family could ever ask for. He always wanted to be with us. Loved us unconditionally and loved our girls. Got super excited to go for walks and go play at the dog park. Loved pizza and french fries.The past year as his illness got worse that amazing personality he always had diminished and he became horribly depressed and seemed lost. His medications were no longer helping. Our house has felt so empty without him. We miss him so much but know he is much happier and no longer in pain. He will always have a place in our hearts. As hard as this decision was Peaceful Pet Passages made it a beautiful and natural process. So glad we chose them for our sweet Sammy boy. ๐Ÿพ๐ŸŒˆ

 

 

 

Karley Frye


Karley is going to be missed very much. She has a beautiful temperament she just went with the flow even if it was something she didn’t want to do. She liked to snuggle and was always waiting for me to come home.

 

 

 

 

 

Cain Mulrooney


Last week (3/22/2022), Liam and I had to make the most difficult decision as pet parents. Tuesday, the best boy in the entire world crossed over the rainbow bridge. He had a great long life and was surrounded by love and passed in the comfort of our home. Cain has gotten tired over the years, but he’s held on—last week his body finally caught up with him. I won’t remember him the way he was his last two days, all I will remember is the dog that loved to chase us around the house. The dog who would steal cookie dough and pork loins off the kitchen counter. The dog who would insist that when he was ready for bed, we all had to go to bed. The dog who used to keep the birds and nests warm with his giant clumps of fur. The dog who had the smelliest breath and the stinkiest farts. The dog who used to steal whiskey and destroy toothbrushes. The dog who hid butter in the cushions of the couch. The dog who welcomed three kids to his pack without question. The dog who did everything to be there for us. The dog who saved Liam and I both from our darkest times in the last 8 years. The dog who was the best we could ever EVER ask for. Thank you for everything, bubba, I know you’ll be with us always, and you’re finally at rest and no longer in pain. Sleep soundly, sweet prince ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿบ

Harley-Starr Endres


This my my babygirl Harley-Starr whom was recently layed to rest with Peaceful Pet Passage. She gave us 16 great years of so many laughs & love. Her personality was like no other I have ever found. She loved camping with the family, going "bubyes" for car rides & ice cream, long walks in the parks, & just playing with her sissy Spirit! She loved so unconditionally and I sure hope she knows how completely loved & missed she is! โค

 

 

 

Nyko Farabaugh


Nyko was a super active Aussie who loved frisbee and ball and wrestling with his sister. He was so cuddly and thought he was a tiny lap dog. We will forever miss him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Henry & Shirley Lawson


Monday March 14, 2022.
It was devastating to have to euthanize both my Chihuahuas at the same time but they were both getting to be pretty frail and sick in their older ages of 18 years. Both of my babies were rescues. Henry was an abused dog and I’m not sure who rescued who they are but it became such a wonderful relationship. He protected me and would never let anyone hurt me. Unfortunately, he was A little too protective at times but that’s how Chihuahuas are. Shirley was a little bit older. She was one of the 180 Chihuahuas that two brothers were raising in north-central Pennsylvania for breeders. She was a breeder and came to me through a rescue organization when my pug passed away, and I thought I would lose Henry from the loneliness. She was so shy and would not even bark. With a lot of tenderness and care especially from Henry, she finally started to socialize and they became inseparable.. Thanks to you and your wonderful team they will not have to be apart even in death as they were so part of each other in life. As many of us say I am not sure if I rescued my dogs or they rescued me.

Cooper Stoltzfoos


In loving memory of Cooper.
Even though we didn’t get nearly enough time with him, he made sure to fit in a lifetime of love and memories with us in the 4 1/2 years we got. He was truly the kindest soul. Cooper was incredibly gentle, goofy, and loving. He was a constant cuddle buddy and adventure partner. As long as he was with mommy he was okay, no matter what we were doing. Regardless of what health issues he was going through, he put on a happy face for his family and tried to enjoy every moment. We adopted Cooper when he was around 6 or 7 years old and he excepted us as if we were his only family all along. He was the true definition of resilience. Cooper will forever be missed. Rest easy sweet boy.

 

Buddy Gruber


This is Buddy about six months old. He loved to fetch sticks larger than him . He loved to play catch with tennis balls with a squeeky in it and he would make that ball sleek. Buddy also loved golf cart rides and most times when you parked he would stay on. Thank you so much for your service. God bless ๐Ÿ™Œ ๐Ÿ™ โค

Sullivan Dash


My wild child. So snuggly, so beautiful. Intelligent and fearless at home, but a large case of stranger danger with unknown people. We all miss you so much, the youngest and smallest but the biggest personality. Lost to unrelenting bladder blockages he was almost three๐Ÿ˜ข.

 

 

 

 

 

Jacs Miller


Jacs was the alpha of our pack. She trained all of the other younger dogs and kept visiting dogs in line. Even as she got older, if you got a toy out, she would turn into a puppy again. She was such an amazing dog and we will miss her so much.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Daisy Dukes Rohland


Daisy Dukes Rohland
(June 1, 2010 – September 27, 2021)
With a very heavy heart… My sweet Daisy passed September 2021. ๐Ÿ˜ข She was absolutely the best pup, and a true member of our family for over 11 years. Although my heart is broken, I know that she was incredibly well-loved and taken care of. And I’m so pleased that my three young men were able to have such a sweet pup during an important part of their lives. We so greatly miss her sweet disposition, receiving her “high paw” when we would come home, that sweet snoring, and of course, that wiggly butt! I miss you so much, Daisy! โค๏ธ๐Ÿถ

 

 

Petey Karns


Petey was the best boy and he loved helping other dogs! 3 years together was definitely not enough, but he helped hundreds of dogs gain confidence to be around other dogs with his sweet and approachable personality. He was the best boy a dog trainer momma could ask for. We will miss him every day for the rest of our lives.

 

 

 

 

Oliver Lex


Oliver was with us for 14 years, he road in the car since we got him and went to work with us for years, he was always a pleasant, I miss him very much. Oliver’s last road trip to the beach. He is greatly missed.

 

 

Edison Jackson


In memory of our sweet Edison
01/22/2005 - 03/02/2022
Edison was there with us (not necessarily in this order)with the purchase of our first home, the built of our second home, he was there when we brought our three children home from the hospital, he was there for us, with us, especially daddy (he was daddy's little sidekick), through thick and thin, he was there for us every single day for the past 17 years. Edison absolutely loved life and he was very much loved by every single person who met him.One thing he was crazy about was his blue ball. He would play with that ball until he was completely exhausted. Edison was more than just a "dog" he was our little Edison! As the years passed, we were dreading the day for you to go. Life without you was unimaginable, but after 17 years, here we are, missing your presence but we know you are pain free. Now that you have your vision back, go find Acadie and go play, be free!! Edison, you may have been small, but you had a very large presence in our home, like a friend of our said, you were a miniature giant dog. We will forever miss you big guy. We love you!!

Delilah Howard


I just wanted to say that Peaceful Pet Passage was so professional and yet so kind today (3/3/2022) with caring for Delilah in her last moments of life. That young veterinarian was so loving and gentle with Delilah. They were also very patient with me trying to make this decision. They kept telling me how beautiful and unusual she was. The vet encouraged me to let my little dog Hope say goodbye to her kitty friend. I sat down and held her and Hope sniffed her all over but then she was done and more interested in some new human friends. I wouldn’t have thought of that and was grateful they did. It was so peaceful for Delilah. She never appeared stressed. These are sad moments- hard moments- but my poor baby girl did not have to leave her home. I miss her, but I am relieved that I made this choice.

Takota Harbold


Takota Harbold
November 04/2006-February 23/2022
In loving memory of our little boy, Takota. There are no words to express the heartache we feel. He filled our home with so much love and joy. He was always faithful and by my side. We love and miss you little boy, but feel your presence everywhere we look.

 

 

 

Maisy Njau


Though Maisy was a fearless and adventurous cat, she was nicknamed Mama as she felt it was her job to look after all of us. Over the last 18 years, Maisy always found new things to climb up, fall down from, get stuck on, or chase. There was never a dull moment with our little mama, and the hole in our home without her is immeasurable. She was and continues to be as we regale tales of her ornery doings, such a source of light and laughter for our family. Maisy loved the outdoors, sitting on the deck with us in the summers, letting the sun warm her fur as she chewed on the catnip we grew just for her. As the catnip comes back in our garden each spring, we will think of her and the joy she brought into our lives. We love you, Mama. You are truly unforgettable.

 

 

Norbert Sulzer


On 2/25/22 We lost our beloved Norbert. He was born in our home and lived with us all his fifteen years. He was sweet but timid, which made us love him even more. Norbert was huge for a cat. And the best cuddler. Our beautiful big boy will always be loved, missed and remembered. Until we meet again. Your loving family, The Sulzers

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sadie Free


In memory of our sweet Sadie
June 14, 2010- February 23, 2021
Nearly 12 years ago you came along just when we needed you most. With you our broken little family healed a little. You made those long “kids at Dads” stretches a little less lonely and those “days at moms” a lot more lively. For nearly 12 years you was there for every celebration we had, and every tear shed ready to provide comfort or protection, whichever the situation needed and sometimes it was both. We shared every snack, you alerted us to every delivery, and made sure we were greeted at the door everytime we came home. Our dear sweet Sadie was crazy, sassy, and cranky all at the same time…and she put up with our shenanigans without complaint. While we knew this day was coming. We still weren’t ready. We can’t Thank Dr. Morgan Enough. Her compassion, empathy and calmness and Sadie pass peacefully cross the rainbow bridge and helped her humans get though a very difficult time.

Kody Tracey


We adopted Kody (pit bull and pug mix) when he was 8 weeks old, a month before I graduated high school. We were inseparable from day one. I am in recovery from alcohol and hard drug abuse. Before getting sober, I was miserable and used to lock myself in my bathroom with every intention on ending my life. Then I would hear the scratch on the door. My fur baby, my guardian angel, my Kody Bear saved me every time with that small reminder that he would always be there for me and that he needed me. The time that I actually went through with my suicide attempt was when I was in North Carolina without him. I didn’t have him there to remind me or share any kind of hope for me to stay in this world. I’m grateful that God allowed me another chance at life so that I could be there for him, his entire life. I am now 5 years sober. I got to watch Kody also be there for my human babies. Elliott (1 yr old) and Jackson (5yr old) loved him almost as much as I loved him. I’ll never be able to say enough how thankful I am to have been alive to watch my three sons and fiancé together. I almost missed all those wonderful family moments. Kody crossed the rainbow bridge on February 21, 2022. He began having seizures which ultimately led to in-home euthanasia. He would have been 14 years old on March 18th. He never left my side, he slept with me every night, he followed me into every room, he cuddled me while I cried, he snuggled with me on the couch, he sat at my feet when I was eating, he was ALWAYS there. And now, he’s just gone. I miss him so much, it hurts. The last day of his life consisted of a walk around the neighborhood, six different tennis balls to play with, cuddling with family and a NY Strip for dinner. I get through my days knowing that Kody had an amazing last day on earth and moved on peacefully. I will forever carry him in my heart โค๏ธ

Cooper Heiland


Cooper was the sweetest boy. He loved everyone. Even though he was over 100 lbs, he was gentle. I was his person, he followed me everywhere. He loved the dog park, car rides, going to the drive thru for a cheeseburger, and belly scratches. I will miss him and love him always. โค๏ธ

 

 

 

 

Diesel Zirkle


Diesel Zirkle
Sept 9, 2015 - Feb 15, 2022
Diesel was loved tremendously by all who had the pleasure of meeting his handsome face. With his stunning appearance, to his sweet and gentle disposition, it was impossible not to fall in love with him. Diesel loved people. He loved greeting everyone and anyone. He was a hundred pound lap dog, and if given the opportunity, would prove just that. Diesel's favorite pastime was hanging out in the garage with dad, going "bye-byes" in the truck, front porch sittin', or lounging on the deck at our family camp. We swore he knew every week that it was Friday, and was anxious until we'd pack up to head to camp. He was his Momma's boy (and heart) and always at her heels. Diesel hated a leash, but would walk right with you in public, when allowed. Although he looked intimidating, there wasn't an ounce of him not filled with love and kisses. Though his presence was massive, his love was even greater. His absence has left a void in our hearts that will never be able to be replaced. Love and miss you forever, our boy. Love Daddy, Momma, Laina, Ellie, Hadley & Lily.

Macy Ambrose


Tribute for Macy Ambrose
"Macy was an old soul for her entire life. She most valued her people and her pack over exploring or seeking out new friends. Macy had her canine pack that consisted of her sister from another litter and her older, much smaller, brother, as well as four feline siblings with whom she was patient and tolerant. One of those feline siblings, Ava, claimed Macy as her puppy and would seek Macy out for naps and snuggles, which Macy learned to love. Freshly fallen snow, a sunny day in the early spring, or the first cooler days of fall were her absolute favorite for simply laying in her yard, listening to the sounds, smelling the smells, and feeling the breeze in her face. Macy's calm demeaner and love of the simple joys of life was an example for her humans to strive to follow. Macy taught us to slow down, love those around us, and enjoy the little things that life provides us just through her approach to her life. Macy's life was full of love from everyone that had the privilege to meet her, a full belly from never encountering meals or treats that she didn't enjoy, and the softest pet beds and furniture that she insisted were not nearly as comfortable as the floor. She was the atypical Labrador mix dog who was completely extraordinary as the best dog ever encountered. There will forever be an absence in our lives from her passing that can only be tempered by the knowledge that we were honored to be her chosen people. Macy will always be missed and loved forever."

Barkley Varano


Barkley had such a love for people and made new friends wherever he went. He was a very loving and loyal companion until the end. A memory that I will never forget about Barkley is the countless walks we took together with him pulling the leash and leading the way. He truly loved his walks!

 

 

 

 

Logan McCandless


LOGAN MCCANDLESS
(AKC Magnificently Dashing Lord Logan)
May 17, 2004 – February 2, 2022
I have lost my soulmate and I am devasted. Logan was the sweetest, most precious soul ever. He loved me unconditionally and I him. For the last 17.8 years this little black pug boy has been by my side through address changes, career changes, relationships, the deaths of my parents and close friends, and everything in between. I cannot imagine moving forward without him here. He was loved by everyone and touched so many people’s hearts. Logan, I became your mom when you were 6.5 weeks old, and I held you as you took your last breath. Your unconditional love was comforting in my worst times and reassuring in my best. I always had a sleeping buddy, a travel buddy, and a snack buddy. We were inseparable from the start. Going everywhere, exploring, soaking up the world together, being Canine Good Citizen certified and being an Animal Assisted Therapy Dog for Caring Hearts Pet Therapy. As we aged, trips became shorter, sleeps longer, and adventure was harder to find. It was a blow when you were diagnosed three years ago with collapsing trachea and then soon losing 90% of your sight, but you managed so well. Such a smart boy but recently your mind began leaving you sooner than your body. I loved you so much that I did not want you to cry out in fear, in anxiety, to not be the smart, loving boy you always were. I remember all the times that you licked the tears off my face over the years, you were my comfort. Now I had to be yours. Through it all your loyalty to me never wavered and your love never faltered. You lived 17.8 years and every moment from beginning to end you were loved! I was your human, and you were my handsome, smushy-face smudge. I love you so much Logan and I am so blessed to be your momma. I know you are pain free, running and playing with your friends. You have been reunited with my parents (your grandma and pop-pop), your Uncle Roger and Winston and the Original Hampden Kennel Club is now complete. Thank you for sticking with me for so many years and being my rock for so long. Rest in peace my precious pug boy … you changed your mama’s life forever. Such an AMAZING boy! You are deeply missed and deeply loved forever! Though I know it will get easier, it does not help the heartbreaking ache that I feel and the hole from your absence with never completely heal. In the words from Speranza, “It’s not goodbye, just see ya later.”

Takara Earnest


Takara came into our lives after the very painful loss of our dear Akita Akina. My husband was not quite ready for a new dog at the time, but when her owner stated that she needed a home where she could be treated like the queen that she was and he saw Takara's picture, he said, "we can get her if you want her". She was rescued from a dear lady in Washington, PA and did not take to most people that came to the house to meet her so her owner was having trouble finding her a home. We were not even at the house 10 minutes when Takara turned her back to my husband (who was sitting on the couch) and plopped herself right down between his legs. She had picked her new Daddy. That began a 10 and a half year relationship that was so, so special. We have so many fond memories of our girl "the queen". She was our "boss lady" who ran the entire household - Akita brother, cats and mom and dad included. She was our clown who used to bounce around like Tigger when she was happy. She was our girl who had her pics taken with Santa Paws and by the third click of the camera was glaring into the lens as she did not like her pic being taken to begin with and I am sure she knew Santa Paws was the vet. She was our hiking buddy who also loved to walk around the neighborhood and bugged to go on walks until the very day that she died. We will never forget our Takara. She will always remain in our hearts.

Charlie Basore


Charlie was rescued from a kill shelter in 2009. He was terrified and abused in the first 3 years of his life. There were many stipulations to adopting him. I adopted him in 5/2/2009. He was a work in progress; however I did have and other baby that showed him the way and he responded well. She passed in 2019 and Charlie became king of the house. Charlie was kind, loving, and a great dog. He saw me through the loss of 2 pets and the loss of my son. He was a rock and a great companion. He was my heart.

Georgia Klinedinst


On Monday January 31st, 2022 we had to say our goodbyes to our Georgia, just four days after her 13th birthday. Words can not express the heartache we feel on losing our Georgia girl. She was our best dog and we loved her so much. Unfortunately cancer got the best of her and in the end we had to make that awful decision. We can’t believe she is gone our home is not the same. She will be missed so much. ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ˜ญ

 

 

 

 

Boost Coulson


We got Boost in 2012 and found him from a "free kitten" sign at PetSmart. Boost was a truly magnificent cat who was quite dog-like and would play fetch as a kitten. Not only was he our child, he was our best friend, companion, and made our family whole. Some of my favorite memories with Boost was him being my study buddy during all of my schooling, traveling with me to Philadelphia for Pharmacy School, taking him on cat-cations, always having him walk me to the door when I was leaving for work, always being there to greet me when I got home, having him in the bathroom with me while I got ready, him rolling around on his back when I did abs, and having him stand on his back legs while I fed him cat treats. As he grew up, he adopted the name "Hairy Houdini" because he would push on the weak spots of the screen doors to try and escape and he stretched out the screens in the motorhome windows on his cat-cation. We loved his bold, playful personality and the fact that he only loved us. We will cherish each and every moment we had with him. Words cannot express how much he is missed. We did everything in our power to try and save his life but he was telling us in his final days that he didn't want any further testing/treatments. His final weeks were filled with him watching birds from his cat castle, a lot of tuna, cuddling under blanket forts, and a ton of hugs and kisses. We will love you forever, Boost.

Foxxy Simonsen


Foxxy was a sweet little girl (whom I called “pretty kitty”) who loved her treats & loved being on your lap.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bailey Barnes


Bailey always had left hind lameness and hip pain. She never let any of her disabilities keep her down. Bailey loved everyone and everything. She was my best friend and always brightened my day even when I had a bad day. She is missed tremendously because she inspired all of us to smile all the time. Bailey never met a dog or person she didn’t like. She loved her toys and best of all her treats. Even though Bailey had hind lameness she loved to go to the dog park and interact with all her friends. She would run and fall but always got up and ran again. It broke my heart when she could no longer run or walk. Bailey still didn’t let that get her down. She loved to go outside and lay in the grass and bark at all her friends. She always thought she was in charge of her home and surroundings. While outside laying in the grass she would try to crawl to get to other dogs walking by. She never let anything keep her down even when she could not walk. She always wanted to play and talk to everyone walking by. She had many friends that would walk by and bring her treats. She would get upset when they left because she loved everyone and didn’t want them to leave. I have rescued many dogs whom I loved very much, but Bailey was a little more special because of her big heart and love for everyone and everything. I miss her tremendously and will never forget the love she had for me and everyone. Bailey was my baby and best friend.

Henry Replogle


In Memory of Henry
June 15, 2007~January 31, 2022
He was just a puppy when he came home with us on Christmas Eve in 2007. Days, weeks and years pass and he goes from a fuzzy puppy to a gray-faced little old man. When young, he was often called "Oh Henry" for some type of mischief he got into or the many destroyed doggy beds. He was also called Mr. Fuzzy Feet or Fuzz Man. In 2010 we nearly lost him to a tumor and pancreatitis. When he recovered our veterinarian said we had received a miracle. We will miss him and cherish our memories. Thank you to Winding Hill Veterinary Clinic for their excellent care for 14 years. Special thank you to Peaceful Pet Passage for helping Henry cross the Rainbow Bridge.

 

 

Jeff Willis


We are focusing on the memories! Good and bad. A decade of crazy Jeff. Trampoline jumping with Jon. Riding in red truck with Jon. Running away… “welp Jeff’s gone. ” Most relentless food beggar. Annoying barker. Loved the grandbabies. Accepted any pet who came to his home. Had that bucket list trip to Rehobeth. Jeff was a happy dog even when we were mad.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cammy Steyers


Of all of the pets we have had over the years, Cammy was absolutely the best!!!! Well tempered & loyal to a fault she was there for all of us in good times & bad!!! She will be eternally missed but blessed us with 15 amazing years & she is now reunited with her Daddy in Heaven!!!

 

 

 

Jackson Walter


Jackson (aka Jack-o, Yakson, Yakkie, Henry Lickelsworth) was a great snuggle buddy and a faithful companion for 13 years. He was a stoic guy and moved 8 times during his short life, from places in Florida to Virginia and finally, Pennsylvania. Although he didn’t care for other cats much, he tolerated them as best as he could. Jackson had the sweetest, smallest meow. You could never hear his purr motor but could always feel it under his neck. He never bit or scratched (except when provoked by a wayward foot). He loved his humans. He loved to lay under the covers of the bed and in the sun. As the king of the house, he kept everyone in their places. He was spry in his golden years, up until he got sick, and loved to play and jump chasing a string on a stick. He enjoyed his catnip and would roll in it and eat it, defending it from other feline intruders until he had enough. He was a handsome boy with white whiskers on a black face and beautiful green eyes. He was a lover of turkey and earned his nickname, Henry Lickelsworth, by weirdly licking practically anything he could. Above all, Jackson was a good boy and he was loved. We miss you, Yakkie. Forever in our hearts.

Boomer Perkins


Our beloved Boomer passed over the rainbow bridge on January 11, 2022 at the age of 14 surrounded by his family. Although the pain of that day still resides with us it will never overshadow the 12 years of his life Boomer gave us. We are so grateful we chose to rescue the mutt with the old man face. There is certainly a ball launcher throwing an endless supply of squeaky balls where he is with all the wildlife he could ever want to chase. And not to forget an endless buffet of eggs and cheese. See you at the rainbow bridge our sweet sweet Boom Boom. Thank you for your unconditional love and being the best bubba Gabby and Madden could have ever asked for. ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿพ

Aspen Willinghan


In loving memory of our dearest Aspen. They say that pets are more than just animals, they are family. There are no truer words than this when describing our beloved Aspen! He was a son, a brother, an uncle, a nephew, a grandpup, and our best friend! Aspen had the sweetest, most loving disposition and wanted nothing more than to please his family. He was a "velcro dog" and had a very different and unique relationship with each of us. From very playful moments to snuggling on the couch, he meshed well with the family from the very beginning. God placed him right where he was meant to be. We pray that he knows just how much he is loved and is missed. You will forever be in our hearts and memories! Missing you today, tomorrow, and forever. Rest easy, until we meet again. Luvs!!

Elle Perry


Our beloved Elle passed over the rainbow bridge. Elle was a spry 15 years old and would have turned 16 in April. She was my first dog and was absolutely family. Elle has been with me (us) through many major events including a marriage, the purchase of our first home, 2 births, 2 major job changes, 5 deployments, multiple vacation/camping trips and the purchase of our second home. Elle accompanied us to many family gatherings and was loved by anybody that interacted with her. She had the sweetest disposition and loved to meet people. Elle has meant so much to me and I definitely gave her a lot of love. She owed my family nothing for the many great memories we have of her. We will miss her greatly, and she leaves a huge void in our hearts that could never be filled. She passed peacefully in her bed at home surrounded by her pups, Mommy, Daddy and doggy Uncle. I love you, Elle, and I’ll never forget you.๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿพ

Logan Young


We were so blessed to have rescued you 12 years ago. You have brought so much joy to our family and you will be sorely missed by Skittles, Luna and Boomer. The cats will not miss you though… We will forever love you “Loggie boy” Now you are free to run with your old buddy Bodie. We know that you will always be first in the treat line. Until we meet again my sweet boy.

Chantz Confair


We lost our dear Chantz on January 9 2022 at 2:30am. It was a sudden unexpected passing over the rainbow bridge. We were all asleep but woke up for some reason at 2:00am and all I can say was there was a higher power that woke us up so shortly before his untimely cross over so that he wasn't alone. We were so excited to have rescued him at age 2, 7 years ago. He brought us such joy and as it turned out, he rescued us in so many ways. I have no doubt he is still with us in spirit while enjoying all the french fries he possibly can. What delight he brought to all of us and we will miss and love him until we meet once again.

 

 

Thor Nair Betz


I would like to thank all of you at Peaceful Pet Passage for being so kind to us and helping us to take care of my baby Thor to put him to rest .This was the second hardest thing I had to do. Your staff from the vet all the way till Thor stopped breathing was extremely patient and understanding .Especially when Thor knew someone was here and he saw the muzzle he thought it was his leash. When he reacted the way he did I was having second thoughts but I knew in my heart he just got excited and would have been back down not able to get up in an hour. Even though I was in my bedroom with Thor she made sure everything was taken care of and that I knew what would happen next. I took a little longer holding him after Thor passed. The gentleman that was here to take Thor out was also very kind and told me to take my time there was no rush. They helped me get 2 paw prints so I can get one tattooed on me . Then I asked to bring my other dog Anna in to say goodbye. I have enclosed 4 photos I wasn't sure which ones to pick I have so many. Again thank you to you and your staff. When the time comes for Anna I will call you first.

Jesse Boy Fuhrman


My Dearest Jesse Boy, It is with a heavy heart I write this…. When I saw your eyes on the internet at 3 months old I knew I had to have you! So Daddy drove me 3 times to Caring for Creatures in Palmyra VA! 3rd trip was a charm, that day you came home with us beside our Girl Haley for the long ride. You sat up the whole time looking out the window. You came into my life afraid of everything, but you left my life a whole, happy, loving, outgoing boy! The love and devotion you gave me will remain in my heart the rest of my days, you fulfilled my life. Jesse my boy loved to go for car rides and especially when we headed to the lake! He loved to swim and could not wait till I threw the toy! He loved to get a bath and be groomed. The trust you had for me allowed me to do everything to you and with you. Until we meet again my dear Jesse boy over the rain bow bridge, my heart, my love and my companion!! You’re loving Mom Cindy and Daddy Kerry, your sister Gabrielle, can’t forget your Brother Dakota, Missy Kitty too!

Percy Shank


Percy was a stray who stayed. After posting him everywhere and nobody coming forward, we decided to make him part of our family. Percy was a wonderful boy, with the howl of a Beagle and the playfulness of a Jack Russell. He was a true chow hound, a cuddle bug, and our little shadow. We were blessed to have him in our lives. We miss him immensely and he will forever hold a very special place in our hearts.

 

 

 

 

Arie Guenther


Memory.. Arie was 18 years old and from the moment I saw this beautiful white kitty I knew she had me wrapped around her little paws..Arie loved to sneak in the bathroom and join you in the shower. She loved playing in water all her life. She was loved and is greatly missed by us. Amazing how these animals fill our homes with joy. I am thankful that we had the time we did.

 

 

 

 

Zoey Swartz


Sweet girl Zoey gave us 16 years of joy and unconditional love. She let us know what she wanted, and always got it! Forever in our hearts. We miss you sweet girl.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oliver Nissley


From the moment I saw Oliver peek his frightened little head around the corner of that rescue, I knew he was meant to be ours. We brought him into our home and gave him all the love he had been deprived of for the first 18 months of his life and so, so much more. He was our Handsome Man, our Best Boy and my Best Friend. He brought so much happiness and joy to our family and we are forever grateful for him. Although we didn’t spend as many years with him as we would’ve liked, those 6 years were full of love and precious memories were made each and every day. Run free now Oliver, and we’ll see you when we get there.

 

 

Riley Rill


Riley was a great addition to our family 12 years ago. She loved to play and snuggle. No matter where you sat, she would be right beside you or would lay on your legs. Riley gave the best kisses. She had her little “smile” that always made us laugh. I loved that Riley and the cats would sleep together on the couch. It made for one happy pet family. Her favorite snack was a carrot. We miss you terribly Riley ๐Ÿ˜˜โค๏ธ

 

 

 

 

Pepper Chasler


Our sweet little girl, Pepper, was a very gentle and loving empath who brought us tremendous joy and unconditional love. She didn't like to cuddle but always needed to sleep or nap alongside us, placing her little head against us. She was nervous in the car or near water but loved to chase rabbits in our garden or play with her stuffed groundhog. We miss her every single day.

 

 

 

 

Pippy Baugh


Anytime we were gone she would sit in the front window and as soon as she spotted the car she would dash to the door to greet us. She loved to walk in the 6” of curb next to the street, a dog sized sidewalk for her sassy walk. She was a foody! She had definite preferences and would start pestering us to fix her food way before it was time to eat. Once she finished she went to her bed to roll around and voice her content. She was a talker! She was a dear companion, and is already very missed! Her little body is gone but she will never be forgotten -love is forever!

 

Piper Hamberger


Rest In Peace our sweet Piper
๐Ÿ’” 4/2008-12/15/2021
Our hearts hurt so bad losing our Bengals to cancer only 5 months apart. I keep asking God why because it just doesn’t seem fair. Piper we love you and miss you so much. You had so much spunk and energy and now with Jack your brother here it is so quiet and empty. I know you are no longer in any pain, and you are with your soulmate Leo. He greeted you in heaven and you two are grooming, snuggling and playing together and you are meeting your brother Ali for the first time. Our hearts are so empty without all of you. You are our children and until we meet again in heaven please watch over us. We will always love you our sweet precious girl. ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”

 

Mollie Oestereich


Mollie was a “tweenie” wirehair wild boar dachshund. She crossed the rainbow bridge on Jan.2 of 2021. She was 14 1/2 years old. She loved to walk everyday at least a mile or so with her buddy Maddie another mini dachshund and her Mom Margie who was a standard Doxie who left us in Nov. of 2019. As you can see in this picture she was our “doxie on the shelf”. Her favorite place to be in the kitchen where all the action was. Her other favorite thing to do was sit in the backyard in the sunshine for hours and she could stay out until the sun set. Even in the cold. This little lady will be missed. RIP Mollie.

 

 

 

 

Petey Karns


Petey was the best boy and he loved helping other dogs! 3 years together was definitely not enough, but he helped hundreds of dogs gain confidence to be around other dogs with his sweet and approachable personality. He was the best boy a dog trainer momma could ask for. We will miss him every day for the rest of our lives.
