You can help by supporting the Pet Loss Resource Center (PLRC)

The PLRC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization that supports the pet community in south central Wisconsin. Companion pets are vital members of the family and this resource center can only do so much without more help. If you are able to help, financial donations is what we currently need to continue to help our community and maybe even yourself.


Thank you for providing such a caring place to bring Emma after she passed. We are grateful for everything you have done for us. We have brought all of our cats to you—Bayli/BB, Bailey, Ted and Emma. It is such a hard time losing a pet and you have been there for us for all of them. Thank you for helping us through this difficult process.

Your kindness and consideration were sincerely appreciated. Cocoa was very special to me and I miss her greatly. Thank you so much for giving her a dignified memorial and for all of the wonderful ways you helping me to remember her." With deepest gratitude,
