Losing a pet can be devastating, but honoring the memories of your four-legged friends will soon be possible though an online pet obituary site, founded by the Carroll family from Heber City.

The Carroll's started developing their website after the loss of their Norwegian elkhound Ranger. When Ranger was diagnosed with cancer the Carroll's did everything they could to save him, including a leg amputation and two rounds of chemo therapy. After the last round of chemo, a mass was found in Ranger's lung and he lost his battle with cancer.

Dixie Carroll was heartbroken after having to retell the story friends and family many times over. “We decided there had to be a better way” James Carroll says. Together they created a place where families can honor their pets and share memories.

The site is in the final stages of development and should be live within the next two weeks. An indiegogo.com campaign has been created, where contributors can help push the project forward.


Users will be able to “Create A Memory” of their pet that will stay live on the site for 30 days to 6 months and prices range from $10–$35. After uploading up to 300 words and photos, users will be given a unique URL for their pet's page. Memory pages include a guest book where friends and family can leave comments in a rolling blog.
