Pet Memorials

In honor of those we have loved and will never be forgotten.

On behalf of the staff at Glade Valley Animal Hospital, we are honored to pay respect to our beloved animal friends who have passed. We welcome you to create a lasting tribute for your beloved pet or animal friend.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together…

Lindley Storm

On behalf of the entire staff at Glade Valley Animal Hospital and many of our clients and family members, we are sad to report that Lindley, our beloved hospital cat, died on August 11, 2020. Lindley had been with us for 4 years and we thoroughly enjoyed her presence as part of our hospital family. Lindley, we wish to express our gratitude for the time and love you gave to us and we were able to give to you. We miss you and you will remain in our hearts always.

“My family has been bringing our pets to Glade Valley Animal Hospital for as long as I can remember! We wouldn't trust anyone else to care for our fur babies! They have the kindest, most understanding staff and always spend as much time as you need to ensure all questions are answered and the best care is given! Highly recommend!”
