Losing a pet is heartbreaking. If your pet passes away at home, please keep in mind the following:
Remember that it's okay to grieve and take the time to heal. Some people find comfort in holding a memorial service or creating a special tribute. In contrast, others may prefer to spend time alone reflecting on their pet's life. Whatever you choose to do, know it's okay to feel sad and not alone in your grief.
When explaining the death of a pet to kids and teens, it's essential to be honest and gentle. Use age-appropriate language and be prepared to answer any questions they may have. Please encourage them to express their feelings and offer comfort and support.
When looking for a funeral or cremation service for your pet, you should consider factors such as the reputation and experience of the service provider, the type of services they offer, their pricing and payment options, and how they handle the cremation or burial process. Consider any special requests or considerations for honoring your pet's memory.
We can help you find the ideal final resting place for your beloved pet in a nearby pet cemetery.
Before burial or cremation, we can create keepsakes for you to remember your pet for years to come. This includes ink paw prints, clay paw prints, or keepsakes that include locks of fur or feathers. Ask our staff for more details on what we offer.

"Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day. It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them."
