“It was a total surprise to leave BEVS without Zeke; however, we could not have asked for a better experience. Dr. Halpin’s honesty regarding the effectiveness of care in Zeke’s situation was greatly appreciated, and we had plenty of time to say good-bye. This was especially helpful to our young daughter who needed to go through a more extensive grieving process. My husband just handed me a beautiful box and it took me a while to realize it was Zeke’s ashes. What a gorgeous box! We’ve always had to wander downtown Burlington for hours to find something as nice..not a fun experience. This was a very nice service!”

Dr. Harnett,

I don’t know what we would have done without you.  You made this experience bearable.  Your kindness and care for Thea helped me so much.  I can’t express with words how honored and blessed I feel with the care she received by you and your staff.  She loved going there; I felt safe with her in your care.  Thank you for being the wonderful person you are and the amazing doctor you are too.  We were so lucky to have you!  You are the best!

Dear BEVS Staff,

Thank you so much for you kind and sensitive care during Guinness’s recent illness. This was a very tough loss for us and your kindness made it a little easier. We’re committed to rescuing dogs in the future, although we’ll try to wait a while before adopting another. We hope we won’t need your services in the future, but knowing you’re there is a great comfort.

Thanks again-

Sally & Will
