Care of Body Options for your Pet
Has your pet passed away and you are not quite sure what to do next? We are here to help provide compassionate, caring service to you regarding cremation options for your furry family member.
We have partnered with Caring Pet Services of Los Gatos to provide exceptional, custom made urns for your beloved family members. Caring Pet Services also offers a ‘group cremation’ where your pet will be cremated and their ashes spread on private property in the Santa Cruz mountains.
Contact us at email@example.com or (408) 262 – 2133 extension 110 to discuss options and to make an appointment to bring your pet in.
Tile Paw Prints of your pet’s paw(s) are available for $30 each and are included with private cremation orders.
