“Friends Fur Life”

We know and understand your pet was precious and special to you in many different ways.  The unconditional love and companionship that was given by your pet is something that you will cherish in your heart forever.  We have a variety of options available to help you create a lasting tribute for your precious friend.

Many people aren’t aware of their options when they lose their precious friend.  We are here to help you know your options and to provide you with products that will help you remember your precious friend at a difficult time. We offer a very fine collection of cremation urns, pet caskets, grave markers, memorial plaques, remembrance candles and Meadow Hill’s Buddies, Beloved Pet Keepsakes jewelry.

With the Beloved Keepsake Jewelry, we can take an ink print of your pet's nose or paw and have a piece of jewelry made so that you can always have a part of your precious friend with you.  We can have the jewelry made even while your pet is still living.  Just to name a few of your options you can have a necklace, earrings, tie tac, pocket knife, or cuff links made in either gold or sterling silver.

If you choose to cremate your precious friend, we use a local family owned Pet Crematory.  That way we can take your precious friend to the crematory ourselves and also go back and pick up the ashes.  You will also be given a certificate that guarantees the individuality of the remains.

We will provide you with a book titled, “When Your Pet Dies” by Alan Wolfelt.  This book will help you and your family understand why your feelings are so strong and it will help you overcome the loss of your precious friend.

Pet Urns

***We will make a donation to a local Humane Society in your precious friend’s name.
