I believe there are more animals in heaven than humans. Pat Derby sure has a front row seat up there with all her animal friends..

I saw Pat and Ted every weekend at the San Diego Zoo and still have all their postcards that they sold there. I have always loved Pat and her dedication to wildlife. I was crushed to here this and I will miss her so much.

In memory of a great person who devoted her life to helping God's beautiful creatures. We were lucky to have visited her elephant sanctuary in Galt several years ago and to witness the haven she created for animals whose existence had been miserable prior to her providing a new life for them. Love, blessings and appreciation always and may PAWS continue on.

The staff of The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee extend their heartfelt condolences to the PAWS family as they mourn the passing of Pat. This loss is felt throughout the animal welfare community as deeply as her compassion was felt by those animals whose lives she impacted. The first to champion the cause of performing animals, Pat took on the heavy responsibility and shared in the great joy of providing elephants, and many other performing animals, the refuge and freedom they deserved. We are proud to have walked this path with Pat and our hearts are with the entire PAWS family as they grieve the loss of their leader and dear friend.

I am very sad to hear of Pat's passing, I met her when she had an animal show in Solvang, with her Mercury cougar. I was very impressed with her interaction with the animals - it was something very special. My thoughts are with the loved ones and cherished animals she has left behind, for they will feel the greatest loss. Rest in peace dear lady!

I was honored to know this wonderful woman. She was devoted to animal protection and really did make a difference in many, many ways and for years and years. I loved and admired her. My deepest sympathy to Ed and all her animals. We will miss you always, Pat.

i am deeply saddened of the loss of Pat Derby. Her love, devotion and compassion for the elephants is a inspiration to us all.
If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane
i would walk right up to heaven
and bring Pat Derby back again.
God Bless You Pat Derby xx
