In Loving memory of Sparky.

We only had him two years but he gave us a lifetime of memories. He was a little firecracker trying so hard to keep up even though his body was failing him. Our special boy had to leave due to heart failure. We were so lucky to have shared our home with this sweet handsome senior. Until we meet again at the rainbow bridge...

Our forever love, Mom and Dad



In Loving memory of
Little Jake

He was a tiny little senior who at age 13 came to live with us. He spent most of his time curled up in his moms lap or lounging in one of the many dog beds.  He loved his sister Ginger and the two of them became the best of buddies always watching out for each other. Little Jake you will be forever in our hearts. We miss you little guy.

Love Mom and Dad



 In loving memory of
He made himself at home right away, just walked into our house like he had lived their forever. We knew he didn't have much time left so each day we made sure to show him love, affection and fun. He loved rolling in the snow and napping in the sunny spots on the floor. More than anything else he loved being held and would climb right up in our laps so we could hold him. Jake always seemed so grateful to have a home, food and a family. He was a very special dog who left his paw prints on our hearts forever.

We miss you big boy,
Love Mom and Dad

In Loving Memory of Cookie

It's been a month since Cookie passed over the Rainbow Bridge,  the time has flown but he is not forgotten.  I feel his presence around me all the time,  the hall gate creaked the other night like it did when he was sleeping against it,  I had to take a double look cause I thought he was there.  He is missed by his sis, she looks for him, our 22 yr old Cockatiel calls for him all the time.  He will be missed by all of us. 

The Kinnarys





In Loving Memory of Our Stella

When we got her, fell in love…  Diagnosed after Central Illinois Sheltie  Rescue received her.  She had Cushing Disease.  With proper treatment she was put on medicine.  A little wild  at first but with do cause as previous owner not treat bad ear infection and find out cause.    All she needed was someone to take care of her.  She shortly became "What a Girl" so much loved by her family and siblings…  She’ll be sadly missed by her family and by CISR.,

 Bill, Lori, Pat, Dusty, Starr, Belle, Lucky and Angel



"Shiloh", aka, Little Guy, when I adopted him, was a very scared and sad little boy, who would not eat or drink from a bowl.  We had to rig something else so he ate and drank.  After 4-1/2 years, he began to come around.  It wasn't until I rescued a diva named Lacey that he began to come out of his shell and he ate, drank and even played a little.
He was one with a very unique personality and, it was a very difficult decision to let him go.  We will miss him very much but, he is in a better place where he is at peace and not suffering.

Shirley and Lacey
