What to Expect

Our Atlanta facility provides pet owners unparalleled service and a state-of-the-art environment, never before offered to Atlanta pet owners. Owner and founder, Christine Hunsaker, successfully ran the largest human cremation company in North America. She has now extended her 20 years of cremation experience to Atlanta pet lovers.Once we bring your pet into our care, the entire cremation process can usually be handled within 24 – 48 hours. Same day service is available. We offer two types of pet cremation. To determine which is right for you, ask yourself, “Is it important to me to have my pet’s ashes back?” [top]

Community Cremation takes place when your pet is placed in the cremation chamber with other pets to a maximum weight limit. With community cremation, it is impossible to get the ashes of your pet back without them mixed with those of other pets. Community cremation is often less expensive and is used for final disposal. Because community cremation is used as a means for final disposal, no ashes are available for return and the cremation process will be accomplished at the discretion of Paws Whiskers and Wags.

Community Cremation Cost Per Pet 0-50 lbs. – $75, Per Pets 50+ lbs. – $150.

Private Cremation takes place with your pet, alone, in the cremation chamber. Private cremation is our specialty. At Paws, Whiskers & Wags, we are the only Atlanta pet cremation provider with our patented Pet Tracker 360®, which will ensure the ashes you receive are the ashes of your pet. In addition to Pet Tracker 360®, we are the only pet crematory to allow our entire operation to be available for public inspection through our view window, in our comfortable reception area.
