Pet Memorials: Remembering a Beloved Pet
A gift in memory of a pet honors that lasting bond and is a tangible way to honor the enduring love we have for our pets after they’ve passed.
When you make a memorial gift, it not only pays tribute to a beloved pet or person, but it also supports the work of Best Friends and helps homeless pets get the love and care they need to thrive while waiting for loving families of their own.
As part of your gift, you can pay tribute to your pet or your loved one’s pet in one of our monthly Angels Rest blessing ceremonies. Learn more about the blessings and watch past blessing ceremonies.

Angels Rest is the peaceful and serene resting place for Sanctuary animals and cherished companions of Best Friends members and staff.
Here at Angels Rest, hundreds of wind chimes ring in remembrance of beloved pets, and memorial markers pay tribute to the love we hold for our dogs, cats and other companions.
The soothing sounds of wind chimes can comfort and calm a heart that’s hurting.
They can be sent to you or you can request to have them placed at Angels Rest or Angels Overlook.
