I was so grateful
I so much appreciate Gwen and Homeward Bound for being there for us when our Cairn Terrier Meeka passed away in December. Gwen's kindness and thoughtfulness helped me through that difficult time. She asked if I wanted a clipping of her fur and being in a daze I said no. Somehow she realized I wasn't sure and she did the small clipping after we had left her. When I picked up Meeka's ashes the next day, she handed me the tiny bag with her fur and told me "I had a feeling you really did want it." I was so grateful that she recognized how much I was grieving.
Your kind act is greatly appreciated
Our family would like to express our thanks and gratitude to you for helping us in our time of grief. Finnegan, our 9 month old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was brought to you yesterday. We appreciate the kindness you have shown us and the dignity with which you treated our beloved puppy. Your kind act is greatly appreciated and will stay with us forever. Thank you for all the good that you do.
Thank you for the dignified and respectful care
I'd like to thank you for the dignified and respectful care you took with our beloved Sammi. She was cremated Feb. 18,2014 at your crematorium. The beautiful wooden urn you placed her cremains in sits next to her favorite recliner. She was our girl for 14 1/2 wonderful years. I planted the wildflower seeds under her favorite tree today. Thank you.
A way for people to share their memories of their pets
During the worst days of our lives, Homeward Bound & their staff were compassionate & attentive to our wishes for our beloved BRONCO! A couple weeks later they reached out to Brigitte and invited her to a beautiful service for people who were also grieving the loss of their pets. The minister and the folks from Homeward Bound were very special and helped so many people deal with their loss that day. Several members of our family were grieving the loss of BRONCO. They also had their own pets that had passed. They went to the service and said how wonderful the service was and the gathering after was a way for people to share their memories of their pets, and it gave people a sense of peace. Thank You to the staff and all who made this possible for everything!!!!
Your compassion has meant a lot to us
Last week we lost our dear feline friend, Max, unexpectedly and today we picked up his ashes from the Pikes Peak Veterinary Clinic. I wanted to tell you that the way you treated and delivered my pet's remains were very thoughtfully done and touched my heart. Thank you for including the paw print, lovely box containing his ashes, flower seeds and poem. This is a hard time for our family but your compassion has meant a lot to us. Thank you.
I would recommend to any friend or family member in a heart beat!
Can't say enough good things about Homeward Bound and their staff!! They provided the right service at the right time with experience and grace! Gwen was wonderful with her very understanding and empathetic personality, yet kept us on track in getting our pet goat Rooster put to rest. They provide quick friendly service and fair pricing in a nice comfortable setting. Good communication skills! I would recommend to any friend or family member in a heart beat! ...Jokingly I told my wife when the day comes she could take me there for cremation and she said "I think there's laws that would prevent that, Dear" ;-)
Went the extra mile to be helpful
When my precious little girl, Daisy ferret, passed away earlier this week, I knew exactly who I could turn to. Homeward Bound has been there for me in my times of need since losing my wonderful Australian Cattle Dog, Mr. Cheyenne in 2012 and more recently another of my ferrets, Miss Violet last February. In each case, the staff not only went the extra mile to be helpful during these difficult times, but demonstrated extraordinary patience and compassion. Thank you, Gwen and Corey, and to the entire staff at Homeward Bound!
We are grateful to all of you for understanding
Our wonderful poodle Chuzzlewit passed away at almost 18 years old. This has been a terribly hard time for our entire family. Since he died at home, we brought him into Homeward Bound ourselves. The sympathy, professionalism, and compassion that the entire staff showed us made our pain a little less. We are grateful to all of you for understanding how much we love and miss our dog. Thank you for providing excellent service to Colorado Springs.
The services that you offer are wonderful
I just wanted to thank you so much for your kindness, compassion, and caring professionalism. It really does make a difference. My vet at Dublin Animal Hospital made all the arrangements, which I was very thankful for at such a difficult time. Chewie was loved dearly by all who knew him, and is and will always be missed greatly. Not a day goes by where I do not think about him. It helps having him here with me, and he will always be in my heart and thoughts, but I feel even closer to him. The services that you offer, the support groups, and memorials/blessings, are wonderful. You have helped in making a bit easier what is already a difficult time.
The staff at Homeward Bound had so much compassion
When our believed dog Monty passed away at a young age, Sara, at East Springs Veterinary Hospital (our vet) took care of setting everything up for me with Homeward Bound. The staff at Homeward Bound had so much compassion for Monty and for my family. The staff even made sure Monty was cremated with his beloved toys at the request of my daughter. Thank You.
