Tribute Gifts

Consider making a tribute gift in memory or honor of a pet or loved one - or to celebrate the holidays – and help support the cats and kittens at PALS.

Tribute Gifts are a wonderful way to:

  • Remember a loved one or a cherished pet
  • Give the perfect gift to someone who has "everything"
  • Honor your mom on Mother's Day or your dad on Father's Day
  • Warm your sweetie's heart on Valentine's Day
  • Celebrate any special occasion - birthday, wedding, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, etc.

A card will be sent directly from PALS to your special loved one, and can include your personalized message. The card will acknowledge the gift made to PALS on behalf of the person receiving the card. What better gift is there for an animal lover?

Please include the following information with your tribute donation:

  • Name of the individuals(s) you are honoring or remembering
  • Contact information of the individual(s) you would like notified
  • An explanation of the occasion (i.e., 50th birthday, wedding anniversary, in memoriam)
  • Your name and address

Wedding Wishes and Special Occasion Tributes

In lieu of wedding favors, you can make a gift to PALS in honor of your guests.  We can provide elegant, customized cards that you can place at each table setting. Beyond weddings, our tribute cards can be customized for any occasion, such as an anniversary, retirement, or milestone birthday. Couples may also request donations to PALS in lieu of gifts. We can assist you with the wording of your request.

For families requesting donations in memory of a relative:

Families may request memorial donations to PALS after the loss of a relative, in lieu of flowers. Please inform our Treasurer of your intention to do so by emailing This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
