Best Friends Wish List - Angels RestAngels Rest:

The outside world seems to melt away as gentle breezes start a serenade of wind chimes. Animal statues dot the landscape — a napping cat, a smiling sheepdog, an elegant owl, and many others all keep watch over the pets who slumber in eternity. Over time, weather can take a toll on our statues, and they must be replaced. We thank you for your generosity.
