A Best Friends Angels Rest Pet Memorial


2008 – 2023

When I rescued Buddy, I didn't know how apropos his name would be. Always smiling, always up for a ride in the car or a walk through the neighborhood, he was a constant at my side. He was beside me for the death of my mother and he was a good listener during the pandemic. HIs smile was infectious and he made friends wherever we went. He was an avid race fan, like his Mom, and could be seen at the track with his muttmuffs, wandering through the crowd and greeting everyone that wanted to meet him. He was my Buddy for 14 years and I still feel so incredibly sad. But I am so glad that I rescued him (as he did me) and have so many memories. Goodbye my sweet boy. Till we meet again.

We believe in honoring the lives of pets
Here at Best Friends, animals have such a special place in our lives. We honor those pets we’ve loved and those who need our help today. At Best Friends, we keep pets in our hearts


Leaving a personal story, memory, or words of support for a pet’s family is a heartfelt way to pay tribute and provide comfort. As part of your remembrance, we also invite you to leave a virtual token along with your words — similar to our tradition here at the Sanctuary of leaving stones, beloved items, or small toys on the graves of cherished animals.
