"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened." - Anatole France 🐶🐱🐭🐹🐰🐦🐢🐍🦎🐠 In honor of National Pet Day, please share your sweet companions with us, passed or present!

Today is National Love Your Pet Day, and we'd love to see pictures and comments of your sweet fur-babies 🐾 Passed or present, big or small, we LOVE our pets!

We have newly redesigned our Good Shepherd Pet Services website to better serve you: www.goodshepherdpet.com. With the new design, we believe our Pet Memorial Page will be most fitting, and easiest for you to share with your loved ones, here on this page. We know how important it is to keep your pet's memory alive, so we encourage you to post pictures and messages to create a memorial for your faithful companion, whether it has been a few moments or a few years!

Today is National Pet Memorial Day, a day to honor our pets, both past and present, and to think and share about what our beloved companions mean to us! 🐾

To honor the memory of your fur-babies that have crossed the Rainbow Bridge, we'd love for you to share a picture or a comment with us on Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day!

Did you know that you can have your companion's ashes suspended into beautiful, one-of-a-kind glass art? Pictured below are the Glass Pendant, Forever Heart, Memorial Bone, Glass Orb, Keepsake Heart Pendant, and Eternal Flame - just a few of our Cremation Art Glass options! This process can be done at any time after cremation and, depending on the glass ordered, only takes between 4-10 weeks for each handmade piece. You can see all of our Cremation Art Glass options at www.goodshepherdpet.com. We can answer any questions you may have at 866.332.3738.

APRIL 11TH IS NATIONAL PET DAY! Whether they've crossed the rainbow bridge or are still in our homes, today we celebrate the joy pets bring to our lives. Show us your beloved companions in the comments!

As 2017 comes to an end, I think everyone would agree that our pets are family members. And they teach us so many things along the way - love, patience, forgiveness, and true companionship. Let's pay it forward. Let's start now. This isn't a New Year's Resolutions, this is a commitment to ourselves to be a better version of ourselves, one step at a time. Pet owner: He would wake me up every morning, at same time everyday, just happy. I would get ready for work. It made me so happy. Me: Sadly our pets don't live as long as we would want them to. Do you think because he's no longer present in the physical form, that he wouldn't want you to continue to be happy? Our pets come in our lives to teach us lessons or make us better. At the same time, everyday, you received the best gift of all. Happiness. It will get better, your load will lessen, remember your gift and keep it hold of it forever.

Another fine review! We encourge our clients and customers to please leave a review. So may people come here and read them when they have heard of Good Shepherd and want to know of experiences of others.

Happy DOGust 1! What's DOGust 1? I'm glad you asked. For all pet parents out there who don’t know their adopted dog’s birthday, August 1 is the perfect time to celebrate! Certainly Vets can narrow down when a pet was born, but DOGust 1st is the official birthday for any shelter pets whose date of birth is unknown and adpoted pets. You may not have known the exacty birthday of your loyal friend, but you sure know the day he/she moved on the Rainbow Bridge. Today can also be a way to celebrate their memory and life or volunteer at a shelter. So, however you spend DOGust 1, make it a great day. You can also raise awareness about pet adoption services and shelters in general, praising them for all the incredible work they do in rescuing and caring for animals across the country. http://www.puppyup.org/happy-dogust/

Mike

We'd like to thank you for the kindness shown to our beloved cat, Mr. Peeps, who was with us for the past 14 years. With the guidance of our vet services we were able to use your services. We always asked Mr. Peeps who he was in a previous life as he looked after us and was so loving that he must have known us before. Thank you from Mike and Pat Roberts

We've had several 5 star reviews lately, just wanted to share.

Hannah

We were so worried about what we were going to have to do once our beloved cat Sadie passed. Between our vet and Good Shepherd, we got to grieve and process our loss without having to worry. Thank you Good Shepherd, your name truly says it all!

Another 5 star review! Thank you so much!
