As our clients are becoming more and more environmentally conscious, we have decided to honor their deceased pets by planting a tree in the pet's name through the Arbor Day Foundation (http://arborday.org/.) For a $10 minimum donation to the Trees in Memory program, you can designate where the trees will be planted—either in Blackwater River State Forest in Florida or Shasta-Trinity National Forest in California—and create a personalized greeting card detailing the reason for the donation, the name of the forest, and your practice name. For every dollar we donate, the Arbor Day Foundation will plant one tree. Our clients tell us they love this gesture.
