Pamplin Media Group readers can now honor the memories of their furry, scaled, and feathered family members with a Pet Tribute. And thanks to the DoveLewis’ Pet Loss Support Program, readers can now place a Pet Tribute at a significantly discounted rate.

Our relationships with companion animals are some of the most important ones in our lives. We build special memories with them, and their loss can be devastating. Grief is a normal, natural response to loss, and we grieve our pets because we love them deeply.

Writing about our animal companions can help us honor the time we shared with them, the gifts they gave us, and the richness of their lives. DoveLewis’ Pet Loss Support Program supports families as they experience grief by offering free community resources, such as support groups, memorial workshops, and more. Pet Tributes will appear weekly in your local Pamplin Media Group newspaper and website.


The cost for the tribute is based on how many words and photos you submit. The typical cost for a 90-word tribute and photo would be $50. Because these tributes are written by the family, you can include anything you want to share about your pet. Typical information includes: funny stories, habits, favorite humans, etc.

Once you fill out the information below, a representative from our company will call you back to confirm you tribute and accept payment. For more information, please contact the specific newspaper you are interested in having the tribute run in.

Pet Tributes is partnership between the Pamplin Media Group and DoveLewis Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Hospital, Oregon’s only nonprofit 24/7 emergency and specialty animal hospital. Learn more about DoveLewis at
