In Memory of Baby
Baby came to A4A Rescue as a 1 day old orphaned kitten-- found all alone while working on a TNR (Feral Cat Project). Bottle fed from the very first day, Baby made an amazing recovery and was soon thereafter adopted by her A4A foster parents- as they became very attached to this sweet girl. Baby recently passed away as it was estimated that she may have developed a brain tumor. Baby passed away in the arms of her human. She is greatly missed and will always be remembered.
In Memory of Tatyana
Tatyana was rescued by A4A after she found herself in need of medical care and with little time left at a high-kill shelter. She had been born in filthy conditions and because of this, her back legs had been eaten away by maggots. When rescued by A4A, Tatyana was surrounded by a great veterinary staff and volunteer foster home- and lots of visitors. Everyone who met Tatyana fell in love with her. She was incredibly sweet and kind. A petite girl, so full of love and happiness. Tatyana was later adopted into a loving, forever home to call her very own and she shared a dream life with her human, Brandi H. who surrounded her with so much love and kindness-- it was the home Tatyana could once only dream of.
In her recent passing, Nina is greatly missed. She was a very special feline and is incredibly loved by everyone who knew her.
In Memory of Haze
It has been one year since our Haze was taken from us by the senseless
act of a police officer's bullet. This past year has been unbearable without
Haze in our family and we miss him every single day. We miss Haze's "honk"
meow, him asking us to go nite-nite on his red blanket, and him just asking for
a head scratch and a kiss. Marlowe still watches for Haze at night out the back
window. We cannot express enough our sincere gratitude for the compassion and
support of Advocates 4 Animals. It has meant the world to us that we have so
many supporters from our family and friends who knew and loved Haze, to those
supporters who never met him. Haze is with the angels now, and hopefully
running and playing with Mandy. We love and miss you, Haze. Randy and Dori
In Loving Memory of Daniel Ritz
As a life-long animal lover, Daniel Ritz became a supporter of local animal rescue, rehabilitation and adoption efforts. Sharing his family home with Boston Terriers, Daniel grew to love pets of all breeds, sizes and ages. Daniel’s loves of family, music and pets- live on, still today. Daniel Ritz passed away in 2012, leaving behind his wife Betty, his eight children and his many grandchildren and great grandchildren. With his passing, Betty asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be directed to local animal rescue groups in Daniel’s memory—so that Daniel could continue his support towards saving the lives of animals in need, even after his death. Daniel is the grandfather of our A4A Executive Director, Stacey Ritz. In Daniel’s memory, we would like to extend a warm and sincere thank you to all who donated to help save the lives of animals in great need, in Daniel’s honor. Daniel is greatly missed by his family and friends- but certainly never forgotten.
Chet never lost faith in humans even after everything he had been through! I miss him everyday.

Boodles was a family member for 16+ years. He use to play with the dog, silently walking by to turn and nip her ear, then play chase and wrestle
with her. Neither one of them ever hurting the other. They'd curl up and sleep together. He wasn't too sure of the new cat when we brought her home after the dog passed. But she just kept coming and curling up with him and they soon became fast friends. No matter where Boodles was, if you stopped to pet or pick him up, he'd purr real loud and curl and uncurl his front paws. You know he loved you and loved the attention.
We miss our Boodle baby.

In loving memory of George, our foster kitty. George has a rough beginning as he was born in a large feral cat colony in Jamestown, Oh. He and 6 other kittens were rescued as they were very sickly. During their rehabilitation, we discovered 4 of the cats were Feline Leukemia positive. As a result, we separated the kittens to avoid spreading the disease. He was a very affectionate kitty who loved to be held and played with. He spent most of the day following us or lounging in our laps. he would cry if he was left alone for any period of time. George was never adopted and eventually died from the disease. Without the support from Advocates 4 Animals, he would not have lived as long as he did. We miss him dearly, and he will always have a special place in our hearts :)
In loving memory of Ron Giese
Ron loved the animals so very much. He leaves behind his wife Ginny, his boston terrier Pepsi
and his bird Patches. Ron is greatly missed by his friends and family.
