Welcome to
  Resting Paws Inc. 
Funeral & Cremation Service

Full service post life pet care

Saying goodbye is never easy. At Resting Paws Funeral & Cremation Service (Resting Paws) we are aware of your needs and we truly share in your grief. While we can never possibly say we know what you are going through, we can most certainly express our sympathy towards you and your beloved companion through our services. 
Traditionally, when it has come time to let our pet’s go our options have been few. Resting Paws was founded with the belief that there is more we can do for our beloved companions at the end of their lives than just say goodbye. We feel that by offering several different options and ways for you to memorialize your pet's life, it can provide a sense of comfort and closure to you and your family. 
We do not see a difference when it comes to grief. Losing a human family member or a beloved pet can be equally devastating. All those involved will handle and deal with the loss differently. 
Simply put, we should return unconditional love! From the initial phone call my wife, myself or one of our caring professionals are available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to handle every aspect of your pet's funeral arrangements. We will personally pick up your companion from your home or veterinarian's office and gently transport them in a caring and loving manor to our location at which time arrangements can be made for them.

Pick up and Transportation

After the passing of a pet it does not take long for confusion to set in. What happens next? Do we just leave them here? Where should we bring them to? What should we put them in? Is our veterinarian open? These are just a few of the questions we may ask ourselves. 
Resting Paws Funeral & Cremation Service (Resting Paws) will handle this for you. With pride and dignity we will pick up your companion from their place of passing 24 hours, 7 days a week and transport them to our location until proper arrangements can be made for them.

Arrangements

At this time we will gently guide and work with your family to discuss the options that are available to memorialize your beloved companion. From a basic cremation to something more elaborate every families needs and views are different when it comes to their loved one.

From the smallest of family pets to the largest, we will be with you every step of the way.

Cremation Options

Private and Communal 

Private Cremation is when your pet is placed in the cremation chamber by them self without any sort of commingling with other animals. Once the process is completed he/she is removed , placed in an urn and returned to you.

Communal Cremation is when several pets are placed in the cremation chamber at one time with or without separation between them. The communal process allows for the commingling of cremated remains. With this process we cannot return the ashes of your pet.

However, you still have the option of purchasing "Tributes of Remembrance" for them.

Burial Options

When it comes to the burial of your companion where you reside and your desired location for the burial will be factors. We will work with you to determine the best option for your personal needs.

This photo depicts the standard way your pet will be returned ~ Nameplate is sold separately.

Why should you use our services?

As a licensed Funeral Director for over 19 years myself and my family know very well the importance of “Personal Care”.  

We will work one on one with your family to provide the care that is needed at this difficult time. 

We, and the respected professionals that we trust to represent us ONLY handle your pet. 

Whatever you choose as the disposition for your companion burial or cremation we are personally involved with every step.

When cremation is chosen, your pet is transported BY US to the crematory and returned to you BY US from the crematory. A third party courier or delivery service will only be used if requested along with the consent of the pets owner. (A fee will apply)

Your pet is returned to you within just a few days if not hours after the arrangements have been made for them whereas with other services typically offered it could take up to 10 days or more. 

You have the peace of mind knowing that your pet is being handled with the love and respect they deserve. 

We started this service after having suffered the loss of our own pet. The feelings of emptiness and helplessness, and the knowing deep down there was more we could have done to ensure he was given the proper care set us on this path. WE ARE PET PARENTS AS WELL……..

"The animals possess a soul and men must love and feel solidarity with our smaller brethren".
"All animals are fruit of the creative action of the Holy Spirit and merit respect. They are as near to God as men are".

Advance Planning

The death of any family member is tragic. Too often, very little time is ever spent thinking about the death of our pets. Many times we do not think we have options for them after they have died or we are just unaware of them. BUT KNOW, you do have options!
 
After the loss of a beloved pet, quickly questions & concerns come to mind such as; What will happen to them? Who do I call? What do I do with their body? Can I take them home from the veterinarian's office?, I don't wan't to just leave them there, they are family. And so on... 
 
This is exactly why there are many benefits to Advance Planning so you can better prepare and become familiar with services that are available. Spending just a few minutes can make the difficult time ahead a little less chaotic, thus giving you the peace of mind & the ability to grieve properly. 
Here is a short list of the most basic reasons to speak to us about Advance Planning.
~ Knowing ahead of time what options are available for you & your pet.
~ Making Logical decisions opposed to emotional ones.
~ Learning about payment options.
~ Reduces the anxiety about what is going to happen at the end of your pet's life.
~ Learn how to care for your pet's body once they have died.
~ Allows you & your family time to discuss memorialization options for your pet that may help cope with the loss.
~ Becoming familiar with our team will provide a sense of comfort knowing who will be handling your pets body once they have passed. 
~ You are able to provide the necessary information to us (if you wish) that will be needed at the time of death to have the selected services preformed.
