Exploits Valley SPCA
You will never be forgotten......
We have said goodbye to one of our shelter cats Oliver. We are not quite sure how old he was but he started losing weight and we began to see a drastic change in his appearance (although his appetite was as healthy as ever). He had been at the shelter since 2004 and was quite a character. Oliver was not a particularly cuddly cat but he had his moments when he wanted an affectionate touch or a tasty treat. He was definitely one of a kind and we will miss him and his presence around the shelter. Goodbye Oliver, we love you.
Our beloved Captain has taken flight and crossed over Rainbow Bridge .
Captain fought health problems and always came out on top. We loved his spirit, it was a true inspiration. If ever you were having a bad day, just looking and saying HI to Cappy would make a smile come to your face and make the day's troubles seem so trivial. He certainly had a way of connecting with people and making everything seem possible.
A trooper, an angel with fur, a true gentle soul- Captain, you will be sadly missed in our lives. Not a day will pass without seeing your face in our halls. We know you are resting with Kevin and Stanley now...
Sleep peacefuly my friend, We love you.
It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that I have to type this message today...This is to honor our beloved shelter dog, Kevin. He came to us five years ago, very thin and worn down from spending 9 days in the woods. He had been caught in a trap which had his head and jaw cut wide open. His wonderful temperment from day one made us fall in love with him and the days following his arrival were spent caring for and loving him back to health. Kevin touched anyone who met him. He loved the attention that was given to him by everyone who visited our shelter. We loved to hear him 'sing' in his own unique beagle tone and we often would sing with him. Many days, Kevin would get out of the shelter accidently and run across the road...to the trail in the woods and spend hours doing what he loved to do...chase rabbits....Many long hours were spent, sometimes up to our knees in snow or mud, calling him back to the shelter. Kevin was one of a kind and we all loved him. His last few months were trying months for an old dog. We saw him through all kinds of ailments and hoped in our hearts that he would 'get better'...we knew his time was short. His heart wouldn't let him 'sing' or 'run' with us any longer and he had to finally leave us. He will be missed terribly, but we all have fond memories of him. I am sure that Kevin's spirit will remain at our shelter and his memory will live for a long, long time. We love you Kevin and we are sure to see you again one day...Kevi was 16 years old...
Your pet in heaven, Kevin
This is our beloved shelter cat of six years, Stanley. Sadly, we had to say good bye to Stanley on June 30. He is now at Rainbow Bridge where we know we will meet him again someday. You will be missed, dear friend, by the shelter staff, volunteers and the many others who visited our shelter. Sleep peacefully....
Forever remembered, and ever loved.
