Lucy - May 23, 2023
Lucy was given to me by my daughter Maggie when my husband was working
in Italy. I had never had a pet before, and she thought it would be a good idea
to get me a kitten. I was hesitant at first. It turned out to be the best gift she ever gave to me.
I had her for 15 years. I never realized how  [...]

Luna - May 16, 2023
Luna was my first dog on my own right out of college. She was with me through so many adventures, mishaps, and milestones in life. Losing her was like losing the biggest piece of my heart.

Bee - May 15, 2023
Bee was my wonderful cat for many years. He had a brother, Sting, who passed away a few years before he did. Bee was the sweetest cat I could’ve ever had, and he and Sting together were my 13th birthday present. He was with me always, and will be missed.

Willy - May 08, 2023
Willy loved to stick his tongue out and get his cheeks slapped. I think he both enjoyed the feeling and the sound that it made- like a rock falling into water. He loved learning and cruising around. He knew so many tricks I could ask him for an entirely new behavior, and he would figure it out He  [...]
Suzi - May 08, 2023
We adopted Suzi Q after seeing her on the Old Dog Haven’s website. Her human had passed & the remaining extended family did not want her. We instantly fell in love with her from the 1st moment we met. She crawled right into our laps & sweetly gave and received affection to our delight. She came home  [...]
Luce - May 08, 2023
Luce was a 1-year old rescue from Yakima, and scars on her face were a glimpse into a difficult start. But you would never know it.

We named her Luce – Italian for “light” – all those years ago, and every day for 16 years she shined with a brave, happy little spirit. Her resilience and pure joy,  [...]
