A Very Special Thank You To Averil Robinson of PET FRIENDS

Sometimes a dog or cat we try to save passes away before being able to be helped or it is too late to save him or her. Averil very kindly and compassionately has the body cremated at her Pet Friends, and scatters the ashes respectfully and reverently on this lovely special piece of land on her property, for Gerdy as a voluntary favor.

This is a special resting place for the Gerdy’s Rescues animals, a lovely peaceful lake of protected wetlands. Gerdy has never had the body of an unloved or unwanted dog or cat disposed of. Every life is sacred, we at Gerdy’s see that no animal in our care leaves this world alone, unwanted, and unloved and without a friend at the end of life.

And because of Averil, their dignity is preserved even in death, sometimes the only kind and decent thing they have ever had done for them. Our gratitude Averil and also that of the sweet angels you have memorialized for us.
