A Best Friends Angels Rest Pet Memorial

Mr Kobar

2010 – 2024

I worked at Best Friends for a week in Aug 2011. Kobar chose me from the minute we saw each other. His name was originally Escobar and was well cared-for at Best Friends. Kobar joined our pack and loved our two other rescues, Maddie and Ryan. All three filled our lives with purpose, with joy, and with so much love. Kobar was the light of our lives. He was a happy, curious, fun-loving and loving kid. He gave us so much love. We miss his beautiful spirit every day. Kobar, thank you for being in our lives. We love you

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.
It all began with two lifelong friends who took a trip to Utah and came back with a buddy they called kobar. The dude joined in with the Wagner family and became the energy and silliness of the group. Can you imagine being orphaned then finding a home with two loving humans and two other dogs to live with. He dove right in and took advantage of his loving home. Now I know this is different from other shelter dogs but he knew his place in the pack right away. Maybe because the humans knew that kobar needed lots of love and he got it anytime he wanted it. Kobar you will never be forgotten
