In Memory of Our Pets

You can do something beautiful and touching in memory of your beloved pets.  The Heart &Soul Animal Sanctuary is happy to offer their Fransican chapel in which memorial placques are hung, honoring your departed friend.  Also you can scatter the ashes yourself in this vast forested area of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and place a stone with your animal’s name in the area.  The memorial placques are 3 inches by 7 inches.  The chapel is very serene, has a doggie door and rests amongst trees next to a meadow and the forest.  The memory of your pet will continue in the hearts and souls of rescued animals at the Sanctuary.  All donations received are used directly for animal medical care and rescueMore info: (505) 757-6817
