Kansas State University Pet Tribute Fund

Stiern and Southwest Veterinary Hospitals make monthly contributions to the Kansas State University Pet Tribute Fund. The Pet Tribute honors the human-animal bond by supporting the College of Veterinary Medicine at Kansas State University. This act of kindness is a way to remember our loved ones as we celebrate one of life’s greatest pleasures: animal companionship. This fund assists with college wide enhancements that benefit animals, students and faculty. Through this fund, the Pet Tribute supports the college's full-time grief counselor who is available to clients of the teaching hospital and donors of the Pet Tribute.

The Whispering Garden is an outdoor area featuring heavy gauge aluminum panels that are mounted on decorative stone risers. Each panel has 69 different photos of companion animals, past and present, sent in by friends, family and veterinarians. A granite-lined pathway allows for visitors to walk through the Whispering Garden to remember, reflect and enjoy memories of lost pets, or the ones that are still part of their lives. If you would like to make a donation in your pets' memory to this fund, a minimum $50 contribution will give you the unique opportunity of honoring your companion by having a stainless steel photo displayed in the Whispering Garden. You will also receive a replica of the photo as a keepsake.

Saydee was a beloved member of our family and will be greatly missed. She was no different then the rest of her pack (the human family). She had her spot on the couch where she liked to sit with her front leg up on the arm rest watching TV or just hanging out with the family. She enjoyed car rides in the front seat, playing catch, getting wet, belly scratches, kisses, french fries and carrots....oh, how she loved carrots! She grew up with five human siblings and through her ten short years Saydee willingly and happily endured tail tugs, ear pulls, "horsey rides" and playing dress-up. She was such a sweet and loving friend. Even in the end when she suffered the most she never was without her smile and her happy wagging tail. She was and always will be the greatest girl ever! Be at peace Saydee Girl. 3/28/2005 - 7/16/2015

I recently lost my kitty, Tiggie on Feb 3rd due to tongue cancer. My heart still aches for her, and there's a big hole in my life….but I do have wonderful memories of my sweet girl.
