Reserve A Brick In The CFC Memory Garden
The Memory Garden was a gift from two very special friends of Caring For Creatures: Craig & Cheryl McGruder. Craig & Cheryl have been dedicated volunteers and donors since 2004. They envisioned a special place where those who have crossed their rainbow bridge could be honored and remembered. In 2011, the vision became a reality when they donated the beautiful stone Memory Garden to Caring For Creatures in honor of their parents.
The Garden offers the ideal spot when you need a few moments to relax and regroup. The location features an inviting view of the gently rolling fields and glimpses of the varied wildlife that also reside at the sanctuary! While sitting on the Garden’s stone walls you can watch The Scratching Post cats who may be out on their patios taking in the view!
Individuals may buy one or more bricks in honor or in memory of a family member or friend. The engraved brick will appear at the entrance to The Memory Garden. Click here for our Memory Garden Brick Reservation Form.

DONATE YOUR USED PRINTER CARTRIDGES TO THE SANCTUARY!

Lindsay Lo-Hound arrived at Caring For Creatures on March 8 2014. She had wandered up to a nearby residence and pretty much collapsed on their property. While her physical body was clearly suffering – she was skeletal and tested positive for two different tick-borne diseases – her soulful eyes spoke of a generous and kind spirit within. We began work to help Lindsay get back on the path to wellness.
About two weeks after her arrival Lindsay began having seizures. She was rushed to our veterinarian and when she could not be completely stabilized there, Lindsay was transferred to an emergency hospital and a specialist in Richmond, VA. We moved forward with an MRI and other diagnostic tests. In the end, after reviewing the test results with the specialist, we chose to let her go. Her physical and mental challenges were simply too much for her to overcome.
To say that we were saddened by her loss does not really capture what our hearts were feeling. Lindsay was only with us a few short weeks, but in that timeframe she was fast to touch everyone she met. Arriving SO physically and mentally spent, she still had the most graceful hound spirit that made everyone smile. We could not fix Lindsay’s body, but before she died she knew she was loved. She knew she mattered.
In honor of Lindsay’s spirit, we have created a fund, “Lindsay’s Legacy”, which we will use to help other animals who come to us in need of help. Two days after Lindsay Lo-Hound’s passing, we were contacted about a stray hound giving birth under someone’s house. Lindsay’s departure surely opened up the door for another hound in need – Pearl. Pearl brought with her a family of 5 newborns.
Please give today and honor the fine work Lindsay did during her short time with us. We know she was worth it and need YOUR help so we can continue to help animals just like her.
You can donate to Lindsay’s Legacy HERE.
