In Loving Memory of Pinkie
2006 - 2020
THE PINKIE FUND
The Pinkie Fund was established in March 2021 in memory of Pinkie, who when she was adopted at the age of one-and-a-half -years-old by Jim Gariepy and the McClellan-Gariepy Funeral Home became her home. Pinkie spent everyday at the funeral home and would greet people as they came in. Pinkie brought smiles on their faces as she comforted them. The Pinkie Fund will help owners receive veterinary care for their beloved pets who would not be able to.
Donations may be sent to:
4321 State Route 22
Salem, NY 12865
Donations may be made in memory of a loved one or as a general donation. Envelopes are available at the funeral homes.
Thank you and God Bless
