Letter of thanks: Sherri and Jim Pierce

My husband and I drive a tractor-trailer from the east coast, and have been through Kingman on a weekly basis for over 20 years now.

This past Memorial Day weekend, we were at a truckstop there and had an issue with our dog. It was Saturday afternoon, and we tried in vain, to reach a vet or anyone associated with animals. To make a long story short, we spoke with animal control, and Officer Erin Roper with the Kingman Police Department came out right away. She called a vet and they agreed to meet with us, so we followed Officer Roper to Kingman Animal Hospital, where we met Art, the vet tech. He was patient and understanding. After a lot of discussion and tears, we ended up having our beloved pet put to sleep. We left him there to be cremated and we were allowed to pick up his ashes the next week (which were already interred in a beautiful carved wooden urn) on our way through.

Everyone was so patient, compassionate, and genuinely caring during this whole ordeal. We can't thank them enough. Anyone who has a pet that is part of their family knows how much this means; it's like losing a family member. Erin, Art, and everyone at the Kingman Animal Hospital was just fantastic. Art was with us during the whole thing, and when we came by to pick up the ashes, he was there again with a big hug. I fail to remember the name of a lady at the vet with whom we also spoke also, but you know who you are. She was there with a hug as well. She saw us pull up in the truck and wanted to come meet us. Everyone just made us feel at home, and feel like part of their family. We have since rescued another dog, and if we need anything for her while on the road, we will definitely seek out the Kingman Animal Hospital. Thank you all so very much.

Sherri and Jim Pierce
