Memorials & Tributes

Memorial gifts are a special way to honor the life of a departed friend or family member who cherished animals while helping pets in need.

We are excited to announce our Memorial Garden that we will be working on this fall. Bricks sold will be engraved and placed around the border of our garden these can be to honor loved ones, pets or yourself. Each brick will have the option of “In Honor of” or “In Memory of” or blank for line 1, line 2 name, line 3 dates. Our paw print stones we will be selling for our garden or for you to keep for yourself. These will have 2 lines, one for your pets’ name and then date.

Tribute gifts celebrate a special friend or relative by providing shelter and assistance to pets in our care.

We are grateful to each and every person who has contributed gifts to WIAR. If you would like to honor a loved one, make the designation known in your gift or online donation.
