Caring for your Entire Family

Many families have placed their trust in our family over the years, we are dedicated to serving their entire family--and we realize pets are important family members too. Pets are unconditionally loyal companions that profoundly touch our lives. Because pets bring us immeasurable happiness, love and joy, it can be devastating to lose such an adored friend. As trained funeral professionals, we understand the overwhelming sorrow that results from the death of a loved one, especially a four-legged companion. That's why we offer families individual pet cremations and customized memorial services to help you say goodbye to your pet in a loving and dignified manner.

Saying Goodbye

Our highly trained funeral professionals understand how important it is to properly say goodbye to every member of your family. We encourage you to have a private Family Goodbye or hold a memorial ceremony in honor of your pet. Additionally, our staff is available to help your family create the perfect tribute to reflect your pet's unique life. These comforting events offer you and your family the opportunity to share stories about your beloved pet and say your final goodbyes. We invite you to bring all of your pet family members to the gathering or ceremony so they can say their goodbyes as well. Finally, we offer you the opportunity to memorialize your cherished friend by expressing your love and telling their story through words and pictures on our Pet Passages Stories page.
