When 14 year old black lab mix and rescue pup Jack Kitchen passed away, it wasn’t just the Kitchen family that felt the loss of their beloved dog.
Jack had been the ring bearer at his parents wedding. He had come to be loved by not only his parents but everyone who got the chance to meet this incredibly intelligent and equally sweet boy - and there were many. Jack participated in everything with his family, and in doing so, became such a big part of the lives of the Kitchen’s friends and other family members blessed to come across Jack’s sweet smile and loving demeanor.
So when Jack passed recently, the Nash family - close friends of the Kitchens, knew they needed to find a way to properly honor Jack - and help pay it forward for other rescue animals so that they too can experience the loving impact Jack had on all who got the opportunity to know him. That’s when they reached out to RBARI, and our Links of Love Program was born - with Jack’s plaque becoming the first to hang on the fence for all visitors to see.
RBARI's Links of Love program offers a unique opportunity to honor a loved one, while helping dogs and cats in need of rescue. Through this program you can purchase a plaque to be hung at RBARI on the outside of our dog play yard fence. When you give in honor or in memory under this program, you can choose a dedication message of your choice to be displayed on the plaque. Each plaque forms another link of our fence, and helps to connect loved ones to the live saving work this gift is making possible.
