This tribute is for my dad who loved animals. He told stories of him as a boy and the stray dogs he would raise as he was growing up and how much they meant to him. I remember one story in particular about his dog named King, a Greyhound mix. In 1941 when my dad was 11, his father was killed after being struck by a car. So to help provide income for the family (which included his dog) he got a job working in a butcher shop. Dad was able to save bones and scraps to take home to his starving dog. My dad proceeded to tell me that after King ate some of the scraps, he would pick up the leftovers and take off down the road to the nearby farms where King knew of other starving dogs and would distribute the remaining scraps among these dog friends he had in the neighborhood.
I always loved that story.
Rest in peace daddy.
In honor of the sweetest badass kitty of them all.
In honor of a great man, one-of-a-kind, with a heart of gold.

Rupert was a big bear of a man and the greatest friend anyone could have. Rupert and my late husband, Tom, spent many hours "holding court" at the Sizzler on Florin Road, eating their favorite wings and salads and solving all the world's problems. The self-proclaimed "Lord of Fish", Rupert loved fishing with all his buddies in Sitka, Alaska. I am sure you are sitting on the banks of a beautiful river in Heaven with Tom, telling all your fish stories. Rest well my dear friend.
Boots and Amber, the live kitty muses for my cozy mystery characters, Black Cat and Angel, who, with the aid of their ancestors & memories are able to solve mysteries.
Sadly, my precious kitties have crossed the Rainbow Bridge, but will live on in our books.
In loving memory of Tommy, 1998-2016, greatly loved by his parents. Your constant affection and enthusiasm for laps, beds, flowers, food and string are much missed.
-Daddy and Mommy
I'll always love you, my little daughter with fur. Rest in Peace. See you in the hereafter.
In memory of Vanessa Bailey. Your reach was wider than you knew. Safe travels sweet friend. xo KS
Her Sweet and Kind nature was universal. She will be missed by all.
My little man who was loved by everyone and made a few converts out of those who thought they weren't cat-people.
My sister Emma was rad as hell. She acted in movies, made friends with Denny's employees and didn't care what anyone else thought. We lost her on June 4th, 2017 and it's been a tough road for all of us. Her real passion in life was helping animals both as her job and as a way of life. Today would've been her 30th birthday. We all love you and miss you Emma <3
Almost 50 years of friendship and service to members of The Riviera Greens Association

USGS Friends remember our very special friend, Naomi Nakagaki, who had a heart of gold and was truly an inspiration to all of us. Her hard work and dedication was exceptional but most of all she was, and is, a sweet angel to all. She fought for the protection of pets and the environment creating beautiful friendships along the way. She will forever be in our hearts.
She came into my life a bit of a challenge.. Over the 3 years she became a loving purring happy cat. She is missed by all who knew and loved her.
In loving memory of this wonderful man who was taken from us way too early. You were the best dad anyone could've asked for. Love you always, Jaclyn
thanks for all you ever did for animals and people everywhere and the legacy you have left for your children and grandchildren to have as big hearts as you both.
A sweet loving girl who brought so much joy. I rescued her from Folsom Ford Agency with her 6 two day old kittens along with her sister, Karly and her 6 two day old kittens. All the kittens were adopted through Happy Tails and the two sisters lived out their lives with me.
Dear Nordi, your exuberant personality and happy spirit will be dearly missed by us all.
Rest in Peace.
In memory of a fine cat with a world class purr. He will be missed.
There's not a day that goes by that I don't think of my sweet father who went to heaven way too early. I know he's watching over our furry family members who've crossed the rainbow bridge. Kathy L
Indie, I brought you home from Happy Tails in 2010 because we all thought you were dying. To all our surprise you made it 4 years before I had to say good bye. I hope you know how much you were loved and missed, rest in peace my gentle giant.
To my sweet girl! I miss you every day especially right now during winter when I would have you sleeping with me in the bed. You are missed but always thought of!
