We thank those people who have contributed to our work with recent donations In Loving Memory and in Honor and Appreciation of the following beloved family members and friends:

  • From all the dogs and cats I care for in memory of Luce, my beloved rooster. – Laurie Melichar
  • Please accept my donation in loving memory of Regina Hyland, a great lady and one of the few “true” Christians I have ever known. May her legacy of love and compassion for all of God’s creatures live on forever. – Pat Neskavich
  • My donation is in honor of my 20-year anniversary of going to that wretched auction to rescue birds. On Dec. 5, 1987, 20 years ago to this date, I rescued 5 red hens and a bronze turkey hen I named “Friendly.” I’ve gone to the auction nearly every weekend since then! – Barbara Moffit
  • In honor of Leonard, Nathaniel, Julie, Fredericka, and Bertha. When the veterinarian told me that my Bertha was dying, she said, “Mr. Deane, can I let her go?” and I said yes. I’ve heard that men don’t cry. They do. – Paul Deane
