Companion Animal Foundation & Foster Program Pet Cemetery

A place for a piece of your heart…

Friends of Baron Companion Animal Foundation was designed and created by Bob Wostoupal in memory of his cat, Baron, and his love for animals. Bob grew up on a family farm full of cats, dogs, and horses. After returning from the military, he opened his home to Baron, a gray and white male kitten that would be Bob’s close companion for the next 15 1/2 years.

To Bob, Baron was a family member. He had his own favorite chair in Bob’s den. He slept in Bob’s bed. So, when Baron developed kidney failure, Bob was devastated. A few years after the passing of Baron, he met with Nebraska Vet Services’ veterinarians, Alan Snodgrass and Steve Hughes, to tell them about his vision. With the help of these doctors, Bob established this non-profit foundation. Bob emphasizes that it is not intended to be a “dumping site”, but rather a resource for care and the humane treatment of companion animals, and preclude them from being abandoned.
