A Best Friends Angels Rest Pet Memorial


2008 – 2023

Tuxedo was adopted through the Best Friends Guardian Angel Program. He was our best friend, confidant, and beloved son. We are forever grateful to Best Friends for choosing us to adopt Tux. Tux gave us the best 15 years of our lives. He survived so much and was continually surprising and inspiring us all with his courage. He always did what he loved and never let being blind stop him from exploring the world.
Thank you so much for bringing Tux into our lives. He was loved beyond measure.

We believe in honoring the lives of pets
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.
We were fortunate to have known Tuxedo for the past 11+ years. He was a wonderful friend who we loved dearly and will sorely miss.

His memory and spirit will be with us forever.

I first met Tux when his plane first touched down at Logan, and no matter how much time passed, he always greeted me as the old friend I was. I’ll miss you, buddy.
