Our condolences to Rosemarie's family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Rosemarie was Lauren's mentor when she joined Orphaned Pets nearly 15 years ago. She taught her so much about dogs, fostering and adopting. Lauren continues with OP with the love and devotion that she saw in Rosemarie. She will be forever missed.

So sorry about the passing of your dear Rosemarie. I met her eight years ago when I adopted my Shih Tzu Lacey in Caldwell at one of her events. I had lost my Brandi on October 16th and I adopted Lacey on Oct. 25th. She put Lacey in my arms and I took her home that day. I was so moved by her compassion and love for animals that I continued to support Orphaned Pets and then Rosemarie's Rescue and sent her updates and photos of my pup. My friend adopted from her as well when Rosemarie asked me...

My condolences to the family of Rosemarie Cafiero. Matthew 5 : 4 offer comfort for the family.

Deepest sympathy to the family for this great loss. The strength from God can sustain you now and in the days ahead. May you find a measure of comfort in the loving support of each other and friends and in the cherished memories you share.

My deepest sympathy to the Cafiero family in the loss of Rosemarie. She was truly a wonderful human being and so dedicated and loving to the many homeless pets she fostered and then placed. I knew her through her work with animals at the Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter and Orphaned Pets mostly. Our world has lost another bright spirit and the animals she tended and placed have lost a wonderful champion.

Sincere condolences goes out to the Cafiero family for your sad loss. May GOD be a source of comfort and strength as you mourn the loss of Rosemarie.

Rosemarie was aunt and sister-in-law to my mom and me. We both had a deep respect for her. Rosemarie changed the world by being an advocate for the abandoned and ignored creatures of our earth. Our hearts are saddened by her death. May Rosemarie's life of putting love into action be a model for us all. Rest in Peace, Rosemarie.
