Caesar Titas Snyder

September 7, 2009 – August 18, 2019

“We saw Caesar when we were walking through a pet store; knew we had to take him home at first look.  He enjoyed relaxing and giving love.  He liked to play with his stuffed sock.  He would always give us the sad eyes look for goodies.

The Geffken family adopted Angel from Esther Boyd Animal Shelter in Frederick County, Virginia; when she was just 4 months old.  It was love at first sight!

Logan Murphy


June 17, 2010 ~ July 24, 2019

Logan was born into the Murphy family.  He loved dancing around; always so happy to see you every morning.  He enjoyed spending time with his dad; especially riding in the jeep!  Logan loved bones; so he would always sit, shake and speak for a one.  He especially liked to chase squirrels.

Logan loved everyone and didn’t have a mean bone in his body.  He was a wonderful dog; who will be missed very much.

Milo Ann Landrio

  June 4, 2019







The Landrio family adopted Milo from a friend’s cat’s litter.  Milo loved to eat lasagna.  She hung out with her family in the kitchen as meals were prepared.  Milo was at their feet instantly looking up at them with her beautiful green eyes when she smelled something good.  She was very clear on who she liked and didn’t like.  If Milo loved you, it was a true honor.   

Rudy Colgan

Rudy was born on New Year's Day, 2010, the first-born and largest of a litter of 5 pedigree Siberian Huskies at Celtic Acres in Upper Marlboro.

Rudy passed suddenly sometime early Wednesday, May 22, 2019 on his rug in the basement. He was almost 9½ years old. 

His family was everything to him, although he never met a person he didn't like.  No furry mammals were safe from his hunting instinct.  Indoors he enjoyed catching toys, playing hide and seek, and running around like a wild beast.

I bought Joshie 3 months after my first dachshund passed away.  My best friend, Vicki, bought his brother, Caleb; who is now deceased.

Manny Burchfield-Cosgrove

On December 1, 2016, Manny walked right into our lives.  He had been born in September and was brought over to play with his siblings by his mother on our balcony and wanted in from that moment on..  He wasn't going to take no for an answer.  When his opportunity came, Manny took full advantage of it.  On the night he came, he waited by the front door and slipped in unnoticed.  Manny walked around the house like he owned the place, surveying his new universe.

Lucy Burchfield-Cosgrove

Lucille Josephine Furr (Lucy Furr) jump into our lives, literally, on February 9, 2004, in Encino, CA.  Lucy and her kittens were rescued from a tent on a front porch in the San Fernando Valley after being abandoned by her first owner.  We had planned to adopt her son, but Lucy banged on her cage, jumped in her water bowl, and purred so loudly that when the cage door opened, she couldn't get to her daddy Kevin fast enough.  She landed in his arms and didn't leave for the rest of her life.
