Have you ever experienced the unconditional love and devotion of a pet? Then you must also know the devastating heartbreak of that final goodbye. It can be a difficult time. Our Sheriff’s Office has seen a need to have a quiet place outside, away from the bustle of the shelter, for pet owners to have time to say goodbye, and to be able to spend their last remaining minutes with their pet. After the pet is gone, the garden would serve as a place to collect themselves before getting in their car and going on the road, upset.
Because we must use County and Animal Rescue Group money on the animals currently in our care – and we wouldn’t have it any other way – the garden must be privately funded. We expect that many businesses will make plant and supply donations. Work will be done by our terrific Shelter Volunteers, along with the help of the Brunswick Master Gardener Volunteers, as well as County Inmate work. But we need your help! To fund our project, we are installing a brick pathway leading to a fountain. The bricks can be engraved with memorials to past pets, honorariums to present pets or favorite people, or a business name.
The bricks will sell for $75.00. That includes all shipping to the Shelter, installation, and you can receive a certificate with a picture of your brick for your home, for an additional $25.00. you will receive a display brick, fell lined, on an easel, for your home or office. All net profits will be used for the garden, and for other needs the shelter has such as new flooring for the dog area. Remember, your donation is tax deductible!
