We know that all pets are family and losing any member of your family is a difficult and painful experience. In an effort to provide support, we have compiled a list of resources that can help you navigate through your grief. We also provide a space for you to share a memorial of your beloved furry family member that we will post on our social media and/or on this page.


Sometimes, a small declaration of your love and memories shared with other pocket pet lovers can be a beautiful and healing experience. MNPPR will share your memorial story on our social media page and on this memorial page upon your request pending staff approval.


Check out our comprehensive list of different types of grief resources including support groups, counseling, reading material, and more.




Daisy made me so happy; I miss her so much. I loved playing with her and having her crawl around on me. She made me smile when I was having a bad day. She was, and will always be, my baby. I also loved watching her run around on her little wheel. Mommy, Daddy, and everyone else misses you and love you, Daisy.


Teddy was such a sweet hamster he loved treats, toys, and being held. Rest in peace, Teddy.


Schelbi was our chonky girl, the first to wake every night so she could get her wheel run in before snack time. She was the first to greet people at the cage door, and the last to go to bed in the morning. She will be so missed by everyone that met her.


Eyota is the spark that motivated my passion for pocket pets, and my dedication to educating pet owners on the proper care and needs of these amazing critters - ferrets and others alike. 


She was such a sweet girl who would give kisses and snuggles, would stash remotes and stuffed toys inside the sofa, and would never let you go a day without smiling. She will forever be my heart ferret and is the reason I continue to bring ferrets in need into my home to this day whether I am fostering or adopting. Inspire on baby girl, you are deeply missed. 


Snuffleupagus was the chillest, sweetest boy! He was the perfect animal ambassador for guinea pigs as he loved people and attention. He was friends with anyone he met, human or animal. He stole our hearts and now that he is gone, so is a piece of us. We miss you Snuffles!
