“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
Anatole France

In September 2008 the Foundation was grateful to receive a donation from a supporter in loving memory of a friend’s cat, Franklin. As a result of this first-of-its-kind contribution, we decided to start this Remembrance page to allow our friends and supporters to recognize and honor our animal companions who have passed on to their greater reward.

If you would like to have an animal remembered on this page, whether your own lost companion or that of a friend, or even the loss of an animal in the wild whose story has inspired or touched you, please let us know. If possible, please send with a picture and a few lines that we may post to info@bremembrancesinkyfoundation.org.
