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-

Dear Dr. Harnett, Katie, Katherine, Michelle, Whitney, Jen and everyone who has given me caring & love at BEVS… This is me, begging with my eyes for my mom to take me for a swim. Guess what? I LOVE SWIMMING! (…and eating, burp)! Now that you’ve helped me get better, I am going to jump in every puddle, river & lake I see this summer and love every minute of life. (I think my family knows this about me). Thank you sooo much for helping me to feel better and bringing my family so much happiness!!! Love,

My boyfriend and I were at your facility on Saturday (9/15) with our yellow lab Macy. She was brought in because she was having trouble delivering her pups. The doctor that was there for us was Dr. Rachel Morgan. Macy delivered a total of 4 pups with only 2 surviving and as of today Macy and her pups are doing great and we are so thankful for that. We would like to thank all of your staff there that night but most importantly we would like to thank Dr. Morgan who was there for us, she went above and beyond with her kind and caring mannerism to make sure Macy and her pups were taken care of.. Thank you Dr. Morgan again for everything you did that night!
