There is support out there!!!

<BGSOUND src="" loop="10">

You are never alone...There are many out there that care as deeply as you do about your furry friend.

A wonderful site filled with touching stories.They truly do "make a difference". Crickett, Bailey, Zoe and all the rest of the staff helped us realize the reason why Grizz came into our lives. When I was looking for an "Angel" to watch over Grizz, I found several Angels on this site. They are the reason that I decided to write the book, "Grizz' Story". They featured Grizz, along with many other beloved pets, in a special edition called "Heroes". We can't thank them enough for acknowledging the courage of our furry kids. They gave me the strength to write "Grizz's Story" so others might benefit from our experiences and Grizz's life. Thank you Crickett, Bailey, Zoe, Coltrane and all the others who believe that you can make a difference!! Because YOU DID!
God Bless you !

We are grateful to have such a wonderful group of friends who care deeply about our furry ones and their human families.  We would also like to take this opportunity to share another huge contributor to the battle against canine cancer.


Morris Animal Foundation has launched an unprecedented $30 million effort to cure canine cancer within a dog's lifetime - the next 10 to 20 years. World-renowned scientists and cancer specialists agree that this MAF-led effort will not only save countless dogs from suffering and premature death, but should also help produce breakthroughs in the prevention, treatment, and cures of human cancers - in particular childhood cancers.

Please visit  to read more and offer your support with this campaign.

Also, a website that we started to help pet owners find ways to search for trials.



We also invite you to visit our memorial page. You can go their by clicking in this link:     These are Pet Memorials that I have made for friends and family in loving memory of their furry ones.  It is a beautiful tribute page.
