Our Leilani...

June 19, 2009

Dear Anthony,

I'm sorry it's taken me so long to write after receiving our Leilani back several weeks ago.

It had been so rough to lose Leilani. Abandoned at the Maui Humane Society, she was one of four dogs we brought back to Oregon to find a home for some six and a half years ago. Well, we ended up being that home for her. 

I had promised Lei that she would never be abandoned again. Then, last summer, she went into kidney failure while we were in France. We thought she'd been stabilized from the heart failure she had been suffering from, but while we were gone, she became gravely ill.

When we returned to Oregon, I noticed how sweet Leilani appeared. I decided to start looking on the internet for a way to be able to keep Leilani's body and found your company.

Pictures of the babies...

August, 2008

Hello everyone there,

I know I said I would send you pictures of the babies a long time ago and I appologize for not doing it sooner. Also, these are not of them in there case. I will send those when I can figure out my camera. I would also like to thank you for using my name as a reference. The people I have spoken with are all very pleasent. I just hope that I can help them with their questions. I remember how it was to want to talk to someone about it. I can't thank all of you enough for all your help and understanding through such a hard time in my life. You really do care about the animal and the person, I believe that with all my heart. Keep doing what yall do best. 

Best wishes hope all is well.

We got Minnie back...

February, 2008

She looks so perfect! I can't believe how perfect she looks. She's not messed up or dead looking at all. I can't wait to get Chip back and see him again. It's like we never lost Minnie at all in a way. When I think of how she'd wind up had we buried her lost forever and never see her again looking like this I'm so glad this was available to do to keep her forever.

Thank you so much! I'll get E.T. , my pug to you as soon as I can. She's our 10yr old blind Pug that died last summer of heart failure and is still in the  freezer. We just didn't expect to lose Chip of cancer so unexpectedly or we would've sent her next. But I'll get her to you asap so they can both be coming home closer together.

My BOO...

To the staff at Anthony Eddy’s Wildelife Studio

I would like to express my deepest gratitude and thanks for preserving my “BOO”. I cannot how much it has meant to me to have Boo back home again. He looks so peaceful and handsome. Everyone that knows Boo expects him to greet them by wagging his tail proceeded by getting off the couch to bark “hello” to them just as he always did.

Many people still talk to him when entering our home, forgetting that he cannot respond with his usual bark. His hair is so silky and smooth and even though it may seem silly, I was so happy I could still see two of his little front teeth 🙂 I had so many funny memories of trying to brush his teeth it made me smile to see them again 🙂 

In January 2001, at the age of 12, Boo was diagnosed with heart failure and only given 6 months to live. Through our local cardiologist we discovered that Colorado State University had a doctor by the name of Chris Orton who had just started preforming open-heart surgery on pets.

The Return of My Poppi...

May, 2007

To Everyone at AEWS,

I finally received my Poppi last week!

I want to thank you and everyone who were involved with her preservation. She looks fantastic!! The time and care that was put into her certainly shows. I have phoned a few times on her progress and never felt that I was "bothering" anyone. All my questions were answered with sensitivity and knowledge. I truly felt as though all involved knew what I was going through. Les is wonderful!!

I am thankful that this procedure that has allowed her to be back home with me. I miss her tremendously and feel that having her back helps fill part of that void. I was nervous at first thinking I would not be able to handle her, just laying there, but after the inital return and tears, I do not regret having this procedure done. She is where she belongs.

Once again, THANK YOU....for allowing my angel to be with me again.

About Nerok...

March, 2007

I received 'Nerok' today like you said I would. She looks great. Exactly like the picture and how I asked for her to be. She looks like she is comfortably sleeping. A guest came over and was astounded. They definitely want to do the same when their cat passes. I appreciate you accomodating me through the mail with all the explicit directions and providing all the materials. I didn't feel like I needed to scramble to find anything. Again, much thanks for the great work and your professionality in handling her. There is no such thing as a quick turn around when it comes to something so important as this. As a funeral director/embalmer, I have a curiosity (and only a curiosity) for other preservation techniques. So, I already knew how this should be done. Everyone else on the internet was claiming quick turnaround and spoke nothing of quality and technique which of course disturbed me immensely. You guys definitely backed up your website. Thank you! We(my fiancé and I) are so happy to have her home!

Most sincerely,


About Molly...

August 2006

Dear Friends,

We want to thank you “all” from the bottom of our hearts for helping to make dreams come true and miracles happen. You made it possible for our “Molly” – the Beagle “girl” to come back home to us. She is absolutely perfect and she looks so natural and at complete peace.

When Molly arrived at our house after several months with you – we were so excited – but a little apprehensive to see her again… but the second we saw her, tears of complete joy came to all of us. It was as if she had never been gone – we had Molly in our lives for 18 ½ years and now she will be with us for ever.

Thru your miraculous work with pets, you have helped heal so many hearts – I know you have ours. I cannot explain the sense of elation and comfort that we have had since Molly has been home.

About my cat...

Wed, 05 Apr 2006

To all that worked on my beautiful cat,

Please know how completely pleased I am with the job you did with my cat. The pose he is in is so typical for him, a perfect result of the phone conversation we had before he was 'set', where you asked me the correct questions and carried out my answers perfectly. The very high level of skill and care that went into his work is most obvious and greatly appreciated.

About Lucy...

January 15,2006

Dear Anthony

Thank you so much for the great job you and your staff did on my dog Lucy. It is amazing how life like she looks. I think the freeze - dry process is the only way to go with preserving animals. Up until now I had only read about the process and seen it on T.V. however you cannot realize the life like appearance of it till you see it first hand. Again thank you all and I will keep you in mind for any future pets and will highly recommend you to as many people as possible.

Yours truly,

Rose and Bill

About Peanut...

Slater, MO 65349

Dear Anthony and Rosalyn,
I wanted to write and thank you fur the absolutely incredible work that you did on my pet, Peanut the basset hound. I had seen some of your work when I brought Peanut in to you after her death, and I was truly amazed at how natural the animals appeared. And that of course to me is the really impressive thing, your creative expertise in making the animals seem as if they are just observing you and resting, and not truly having passed from this life.

About Meezer...

Dear Anthony Eddy and Staff,

We got our precious Meezer home this afternoon. We cannot believe how beautiful she looks. Your work is absolutely amazing. 

Meezer looks as though she is sleeping..Both Richard and I feel like we have our "Darling Girl" back.

We can't thank you enough for your kindness and understanding. 

It feels so good to have Meezer home and we are so glad that we made the decision to preserve her. We had no idea that Meezer would look so beautiful, or that we would have our pain eased so much by having her home with us. Seeing Meezer took the pain away.  Thank you so much. There are no words to express the comfort of having Meezer back home with us where she belongs.  Everyone was so kind and understanding while we waited for the process to be done. Once again thank you so much for your kindness and beautiful work. 

Donna & Richard 

You are always welcome to share our feeling with anyone considering preserving their pet

About Topanga

March 5, 2013
Dear AEWS,
I just want to let you all know that Topanga arrived today and she is perfect. You guys all did an amazing job! She looks so peaceful sleeping in her bed where she belongs. Losing Topanga was challenging and difficult to accept, but you guys made it so much easier to cope with my loss. I'm glad that you all take pride in your work and understand how much our pets mean to us. Topanga meant the world to me and I am glad that she will always be by my side thanks to you all.
Thank you,

About Possum


March 11, 2013

To Les,

And everyone who took care of my little 'Possum' for me.

Thank you so much for what you do. I don't know what I would have done if you didn't offer this service, for those of us that just can't let go of the pets we love so much. It was just so impossible for me to put this beautiful little being into the ground. 

Possum looks so peaceful, like he is just sleeping. That is just as I wanted. It was a long year without him, but I’m so happy he is back home with me and up in his kitty tree where he belongs. Forever sleeping. Les, you were just wonderful with me and so perfect for what you do there. Just so compassionate. They truly can’t possibly pay you enough?? .

Thank you again and God bless...

Donna S. (And little 'Possum Angel’)

About  My Dogs
March 11, 2014
I would like to take the time to thank you and all your staff for the outstanding job you have done on all the freeze dried dogs I have had you do for me in the past. The qualty of your work is outstanding and as much life like as would be possible. Being involved in veterinary medicine for the better part of my life and working in a very special field pertaining to cloning and genetics I find the freeze dried process very interesting. In the past I have tried other companies and none have come close to the quality of your work. Feel free to use me as a reference for any future prospects that may be interested in your services.
