Welcome to our Pet Memorial Page

Many People who have a pet consider them as a part of the family. Not only when they live and provide us with happy times, but also when they pass away. At Hobo's Healing Heart we honor our pets as family members. For a small in-kind donation that will go to help other family members with urgent veterinary care needs for their pet, you may have a memorial for your pet on our page. Memorials are free, however we graciously accept donations to help other family pets in need. To have a memorial established, please email your photo and a short write-up about your pet to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. If you wish to donate, you can do it one of two ways. On our home page you may make a one time donation, or from this page you may place a reoccurring donation. Thank you. 

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 and 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 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. The bright eyes are intent; the eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to break away 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.

BubbaBubba (Rottweiler/German Shepherd mix): Bubba was adopted by our family in November of 2004.  He quickly became my Dad's best friend, always following him around and keeping him company.  Bubba had to have surgery due to a torn ACL a few years back.  He never fully recovered from that injury and developed bad arthritis.  Bubba never faltered in his love for the family and continued to be the faithful sidekick to my Dad.  Unfortunately, his legs gave out on him and could no longer walk.  He crossed the Rainbow Bridge in April of 2014. He will forever be loved and cherished. - Heather Blankenship, Columbus, Ohio.



Havoc Havoc (English Mastiff): Havoc was rescued by Lady Bug K9 Rescue out of Mansfield, Ohio in October of 2010.  The rescue saved him and his litter mates from the awful conditions of a crowded and miserable puppy mill.  My husband and I adopted Havoc through the rescue when he was 12 weeks old.  He was an amazing dog that showed so much love to his 'people.' Unfortunately, due to what we believe to be problems stemming from over breading and his horrible living conditions at the start of his life, Havoc quickly developed concerning health problems.  At two years old, we had to rush him to the emergency vet.  As soon as we arrived at the medical facility, his heart stopped from cardiac arrest.  The doctors were able to revive him, but found that he was suffering from a torn bowel and had become septic.  We made the agonizing decision to put him to sleep, as his survival rate after surgery was only 2%.  Havoc crossed the rainbow bridge in December of 2012.  He will forever be loved and cherished. - Heather Blankenship, Columbus, Ohio.


Sid: My beloved Aussie Shepherd named Sid Bug went to doggy heaven on 7-9-15. She came into my life early in August of 2001. She was about 8 weeks old. I thank God I had her for over 14 years on this earth. Words can't explain the bond between a person and a special dog, unless you have experienced it first hand. Sid Bug kept me safe, held down the house, made me laugh, and never left my side even when I was a little unstable. My your place high above be full of Alpo special cuts. - Ronnie Collins, Wellston, Ohio.
