Tree of Life Memorial Sculpture

Enter the lobby of Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston and you’ll see an elegant “Tree of Life” brass sculpture, created by artist Sanford Werfel in 1990 in honor of Angell’s 75th anniversary. By adding an engraved brass leaf, branch or foundation stone to the Tree, you create a visual expression of love and respect for your friend, family member or animal companion.

Tributes are available in the form of Leaves, Branches, or Stones.

Please note that in order to accommodate future tributes, Leaves, Branches, and Stones will be displayed for a period of 10 years. At the ten year anniversary, the donor will have the opportunity to renew their donation for an additional ten years; have the tribute returned to them; or have the tribute memorialized in our Book of Life scrapbook.

Leaf Specifications

The donation for a Leaf is $300. Leaves can accommodate approximately 140 characters including spaces. All text is capitalized and centered for uniformity. Leaves take about 4 weeks to arrive from the engraver.

Branch Specifications

The donation for a Branch is $1,500. A Branch can accommodate roughly 125 characters including spaces. The number of lines/alignment varies due to the unique shape of each branch plate, but all text is capitalized for uniformity. Branches take 6 to 8 weeks to arrive from the engraver because they are specially cast. There is currently a waitlist for Branches. Please email to add your name to the waitlist.

Stone Specifications

The donation for a Stone is $5,000. A Stone can accommodate roughly 100 characters because the text is larger than Branches and Leaves. All text is capitalized and centered for uniformity. Stones take 6 to 8 weeks to arrive from the engraver because they are specially cast.

Installation

Donors are welcome to come to Angell for installation so they may pick their own spot on the Tree. Brie is available for installations by appointment Mon-Fri 9-4. If the donor or honoree is unable or does not want to be present, we will pick a spot on their behalf and email photos and a map of its location.
