🐾💔🌈In Loving Memory of Cali. A beautiful & touching message from her mommy & daddy🌈💔🐾
ONE LAST KISS TO KEEP FOREVER. Today we sent our perfect, precious Calli to heaven to be with her beloved sister Lily. We tried every means possible before releasing this gorgeous being from her pain. If I had had a daughter I would wish her to be just as lovely. She adored both of us, never complained & lived to bring us joy, laughter and affection. My baby was just extraordinary–incredibly beautiful inside and out. She was calm, giving, kind gentle & friendly. We loved to dress her in her Destiny for Dogs t-shirt to promote rescue. She always drew a crowd and I would proudly explain no she’s not a show pup, but the face of rescue. Selfishly, my most favorite memory will always be her endless, sweet kisses which made her fabbie dad a wee bit jealous. When times were RUFF she would always bring me calm and happiness. I so often joked to my peeps that she was my Valium Zanax & Wine all wrapped in an exquisite bundle of fur. Goodbye my sweet girl– til we meet again.
🌹🐾♥️IN LOVING MEMORY OF COOKIE♥️🐾🌹 From Cookie’s mom:“Very sad to tell you our beloved Cookie ended her final camping trip on Monday night. Cookie was diagnosed with oral mast cell tumor in February. It was a high grade tumor with a miotic index of 146! (Should be below 5) with a poor prognosis (2-3 months). Surgical excision and/or radiation would have removed her right upper jaw and nose, still with a poor prognosis. Both the dental surgeon and oncology doctors weren’t in favor of this course. We tried chemo, but she did not respond to treatment. We chose to provide palliative care and enjoy every minute we had with her. She gave us an additional 3 bonus months (she must have known a camping trip was on the calendar). On Monday, within 24 hours, she went from being her usual playful self to the cancer in her mouth just exploding and invaded the nasal cavity, etc. She was such a fun character! A great companion who loved fishing, camping, anything that involved going for a ride, and never lost her puppy exuberance despite being 13 yrs old. Thank you for finding her for us!! She was such a good companion, George’s ‘therapy dog’ and a joy to everyone. We will miss her dearly.” 🌈We are all sending our loving, thoughts and prayers to Cathy & George in the loss of their beloved angel girl, Cookie. She will always remain in your heart, loving thoughts and beautiful memories until you meet again🌈 Thank you for providing Cookie such an extraordinary, loving forever home.
♥️🙏🌹In Loving Memory of Amy Barone🌹🙏♥️ Our hearts go out to Amy’s Family and Friends in the loss of such a beautiful lady inside and out. Always so loving, caring, nurturing, and truly an animal lover.
Amy adopted Joy from Destiny for Dogs. I personally had the pleasure of performing the adoption and the chance to meet and get to know Amy. She was truly an angel on earth. Amy and Joy were a match made in Heaven. Joy brought so much joy to Amy. I took this beautiful photo of Amy and Joy which reflects the love, happiness and special bond that they instantly shared. I was blessed to know Amy for only a short time however felt like I knew her forever.
Amy was truly gone to soon💔
It is an honor that Destiny for Dogs has been chosen to honor Amy’s Life and “In Loving Memory” of such an extraordinary person.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who knew and loved her. Plus all the lives Amy touched to make our world a better place.

Cali was our 16 year old Golden Retriever who passed in February 2022 from old age and Roxy was our sweet angel we adopted many years ago and her approximate age was 13 who passed in May 2022. Roxy finally succumb to her long time Cushing’s disease that she was being treated for since she was diagnosed many many years ago. Both lived so much longer than anyone thought as they were so loved and happy. Roxy and Cali were ready to move out of Florida and go on a long road trip across country, but they just could not last long enough for the journey of their lifetime. We will miss having our big girls traveling with us. Roxy and Cali are survived by their Chihuahua sister and two cats, Rock Monster and KiKi. RIP our sweet angels.
♥️This touching story was written by Oliver’s mom, who also created a beautiful video to remember this very special boy who will be missed by all♥️
“Hello, this is Judeene, I adopted Oliver (black shih tzu) back in 2019. Today was a very sad day for me and my family, we had to lay him down today due to his severe cancer. But I know Oliver is now in no more pain. He was truely a light to us. He knew when I was feeling down and always crawled on me to cheer me up. He was everything and I want to thank you and everyone involved for allowing me to adopt him and for bringing him into my life and also helping us through this process.
Although its hard to come to the conclusion that he’s gone, he was amazing and a great soul. Oliver will forever be loved 🖤. Thank you for everything.”
🌈🌹We are all so sorry for the loss of your beloved, Oliver. Thank you for being so wonderful, loving and caring to him. Until you meet again, Oliver will remain in your heart and loving memories🌹🌈
“JoAnn, King took ill just over a week ago and he was admitted to a nearby animal hospital on Monday. At first the staff there were optimistic that he’d be returning home soon, though the treatment options for his cancer would be limited. But then he took a turn for the worse yesterday morning, and he died in my arms at the hospital last night. Everyone whoever encountered him knew him to be the sweetest little guy. I can’t thank you enough for letting him be with me. I only wish it could have been for a longer time. I miss him already.
Please feel free to post photos and information about King on your website. I have many photos of him. Here’s one, and I’ll send more so you’ll have a variety of choices.
There are lots more, but for now I will end with the photo that won the local camera store contest.”
To know King was to love him. We are all so sorry for the loss of this beautiful senior gentleman. Our healing thoughts and prayers go out to his Dad, Joe who provided unconditional love and took extraordinary care of his beloved, King.

In Loving Memory of Geodi from his beloved mom, Jackie:
“It’s with much sadness that yesterday once again I had to send another over rainbow 🌈 bridge. Geodi weighing in at only 6 pounds was mighty and fierce, the rest of the crew ran from you when you were in the mood. You came to me six years ago with your brother and you’ve been searching for him since he left us nine months ago. Now the two of you can be together again. We’re going to miss you little guy but Zen & Laci are waiting for you. Thank you Destiny For Dogs and JoAnn Lewis Goodrich for everything you do to help these voiceless critters and letting me give these guys a home when you did. RIP Geodi. We love you!”
🌹🌈🐾♥️IN LOVING MEMORY OF MOCHIE AKA JOJO FROM HIS MOM♥️🐾🌈🌹
💔I lost my beautiful and good, one of a kind baby boy Mochie, Monday on the full moon. So deeply truly saddened. Had him for almost 2 years, was sick for 1 year. Mochie loved riding in the car, loved his foodie, loved walking, loved resting and sleeping late! Vet came to house yesterday, said he wasnt good. Mochie had been fading for some months. Mochie went to sleep in yard, as best he could, beautifully and peacefully. I will get his ashes next week💔

But I wanted to thank you for letting us love him and trusting us with him. And I wanted you to hear it from me. Thank you so much for everything.”
Cooper was a very special fella. He hit the doggie lottery with his caring, loving, patient, mom and dad. They provided Cooper an extraordinary life.

“It Is with my deepest sadness that I write and let you know that Charlie crossed The Rainbow Bridge last night. Wednesday night he had a first seizure and I rushed him to the emergency room. Medication worked and he was fine and good all day Thursday. Last night however Charlie had another in the middle of the night, I rushed him back to the Emergency room. The doctors worked on him for 2 hours to no avail, they did everything they could to save him. Charlie died in my arms, he was such a good baby I had him almost 5 years. Charlie wanted for nothing if he needed something he got it . I am heartbroken
I attached a picture of Mr. Charlie in his own Lawn chair. He was such a big joy to me.
“It is with a very heavy heart I have said goodbye to my little guy today. It’s only been less than 5 years we have been together but seems much longer. I’ll never forget when you and your little brother came to me as fosters from Destiny For Dogs, JoAnn Goodrich! Thank you for giving me the chance to give him his final forever home. You had such a rough life before. I’m so glad I was able to give you the love and family you deserved these past few years. Thank you Dr. Matthew Bond for taking such good care of my boy at the end so he didn’t suffer. I will miss you always ZEN but for now run free! Until we meet again.”
“I regret to inform you that Dexter crossed the Rainbow Bridge due to a cancerous mass in his abdomen yesterday morning. We are heartbroken as he was such a wonderful and protective big brother to our departed Sissy and recent brother Corky.
Thank you for allowing us to brighten our lives with the love and companionship he gave us. We know he is in the presence of our Lord enjoying a joyful existence. May God continue to bless and provide grace and mercy to you and your rescue.”
“Hi just wanted to let you know I had to put Henry to sleep Tuesday:( He only had two good legs and hurt the back one Sunday chasing a squirrel causing a fracture and blown out knee. Henry’s other legs would not have supported him having surgery. Like my vet said, Henry did what he loved to do and was loved these last years. “I always told Henry, you only have 2 good legs left, you better slow it down!! Nope, not with squirrels it was his favorite thing and always go time!!!”
🐾💕Henry led a miserable life… until his mom met and fell in love with him. Henry hit the doggie lottery and was provided everything he never had. Plus many years of love, happiness, nurturing and fun. We are grateful to Henry’s mom for rescuing an older dog and providing a full lifetime of love in just a few years🐾💕
🌈Rest In Peace dear, sweet, Henry. Until you and your mom meet again. You will always be in her heart and loving thoughts 🌈
Joanne Sylvester returned to her heavenly Father, passing peacefully at home with her husband of 62 years, by her side. Joanne was born and raised in New York City, moving to West Palm Beach in 1958 with her husband, Raymond. She was one of the early pioneers of the Palm Beach Civic Opera, now known as the Palm Beach Opera. Joanne sang at several local churches, countless weddings, funerals and other events throughout her life. She was soloist at St. Edward’s Catholic Church in Palm Beach from 1978 through 1989, and continued with the St. Edward’s Choir until 2016. Joanne is survived by her husband, Raymond, and her children, Richard (Jean), Stephen, Philip, Christina Torres (Israel), and Joanna Sylvester-Hartman (Ben), and grandchildren Nick, Olivia, Elizabeth, Jack, and Noah, her brother John Pennino of New York City as well as her two faithful canine companions Dino and Mia. Joanne has always been an animal advocate. The family home was never without a pet, usually more than one. Throughout her life, Joanne’s love and compassion toward animals and humans, especially children, was evident to anyone who knew her.
This little kitty was living on the streets with a homeless woman. She was very I’ll and it appeared that she had been a while. As soon as we heard of this situation we picked her up and took her to the emergency. She was having difficulties breathing and was extremely lethargic. When she arrived, she was in full kidney failure and we could not save her. It was agreed that there was only humane thing to do – end her suffering. Before she left this world we named her Lovey and our volunteer Gina stayed with her and showed Lovey kindness and love. She had one final kiss before she passed. RIP angel.
🌈IN LOVING MEMORY OF LOBA A BEAUTIFUL, SWEET & AFFECTIONATE, 14 YEAR OLD COLLIE MIX SENIOR LADY WHO WENT TO RAINBOW BRIDGE ON MONDAY, JULY 13TH🌈
💔A special “Thank You” to Loba’s foster mother, Susan for taking such wonderful hospice care of her. Plus providing quality of life and TLC during her last few months on earth. The following message was written by Susan💔
“🌈Today we sent this beautiful girl to run free to rainbow bridge where I’m sure her other mother is waiting for her. We took her in after her owner passed away so she could spend her last few months in a big yard with lots of dog friends and love. Loba was a very sweet girl and will be missed by my family but she was ready to go. She was so bad on Sunday she couldn’t even walk but wanted to. Loba was struggling and I did not want her to suffer. She was so tired. But I had a dream that night that she was running thru our yard happy, healthy with her tail high and I knew it was her time. Run free sweet Loba🌈”
