DMK Rehoming would like to take some time to remember those who are special to us and have crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge. These memorials have come to DMK by way of donations in their loved ones name, by updates over the years of their loved one’s beautiful lives, and by shoulders that we have cried on through difficult times. We are taking a moment to remember the loved ones in our lives. If you would like to have your loved one on our memorial page, please contact us and we will add them to our site.
This is my Shadow who passed away on December 23, 2016. He was an abuse rescue who I adopted in November 2007 after having lost my previous dog to poisoning from the Chinese pet food recall. Though I’m pretty sure Shadow rescued me. He was a timid pup at first who had been badly treated, but the minute we left the shelter in Colorado Springs his personality burst through. He was a little over protective of me at first, but with some training and a gentle hand he came to love other people and always other animals. Shadow owned my heart and soul completely. He became severely ill over the summer and never completely recovered – and passed away in my arms due to kidney failure the day after my 53rd birthday. The house is not the same and I keep subconsciously looking for him as I enter each room. I know in time I will adopt another dog because Shadow would want me to do so. He had so much love to give even though his life began around such cruelty. For now I will rely on the many memories of kisses, belly rubs, road trips, and play that we shared and try to cry a little less each day. He was my best pal – and I know in my heart we rescued each other. We will meet again at the Rainbow Bridge.
In remembrance of our dad (pictured with his beloved dog). This is Dad and Tina at the Boulder Humane Society the day we got her. I had heard that pets were good for the elderly and it had been several years since our family dog had passed. I convinced dad to go “just for a look”. (Right!) Dad went to the glass cage that held Tina. He had Chihuahuas in the past and had a soft spot for them. She bonded immediately with Dad & I knew she was the perfect match. She jumped into his lap and never got off. When we got her home it was like she had lived there forever. Tina was a constant companion to Dad, and brought him so much joy. Even in our dad’s final days she would jump into his bed and curl up on his legs. She is our little diva and angel. We miss you, dad.
*In lieu of flowers the Saiz family accepted and made a donation for DMK dogs in memory of Fred Saiz, the eternal dog lover. For that, DMK Rehoming thanks you.
My baby Girl Indy! She passed away Dec 2013 miss her everyday xoxo
Romeo passed 11-7-2015 at 14 years old. He left peacefully at home with his family by his bed. He was the sweetest kitty and truly lived up to his name.
The Womble family is preparing for a huge loss, Madison and Nellie both have cancer. Soon they will not be with them. Our good friend and supporter Kristin Allison stopped by to do a family photo shoot, these are some of the great pictures, thank you Kristin! All the furry family members are DMK Alumni (DMK actually fostered Nellie for another rescue before Carl and Teri adopted her) they have had such wonderful lives together. Our hearts are breaking for Carl, Teri, Madison (spotted girl), Nellie (tan/white girl), Carson (little one) and our wonderful Bob (handsome one in the front) this is such a horrible, emotional time for the family. Please keep them in your thoughts.
Our sweet Booker was an amazing beagle. Booker felt all toys including beanie babies belonged to Booker. He was so funny. If he got a new toy, he would take it out in the yard and hide it from Barney and Holly. He was so sweet, We really miss him!
Christmas Eve 2012, Jill, had to leave her long time home and ended in the hands of DMK Rehoming. Jill was very sad, she lost her home and her whole family, but then Melissa came – Melissa had a son that would just love Jill and right before my very eyes —- A Christmas Miracle happened! Jill and her new family would spend the next two years happily together. Sadly, in December 2014 Jill lost her fight with renal failure. Though short lived, Jill spent the last years of her life happier than ever.
Our friend Pam lost her loved one Jake, in September 2014 after 13 years of constant companionship. She called Jake her wonderful baby boy and was deeply saddened by this loss. Jake had a wonderful life with Pam and his family and is now waiting for them at the Rainbow Bridge.
