Caring For Hickory, NC Pet Lovers

Paws, Whiskers & Wags’ Hickory location is the top dedicated pet funeral service with an on-site crematory located in the Hickory-Lenoir-Morganton metro area within Alexander, Burke, Caldwell, and Catawba counties.

This facility handles pet cremation services for your loved ones of all sizes and the Hickory-Hudson campus currently also features an on-site chapel for you to use to celebrate the life of your pet.

At Paws, Whiskers & Wags, we specialize in private cremation services for pets. We guarantee that your pet is cremated on site at one of our facilities, by themselves in a dedicated chamber. You will receive your pet’s ashes back after private cremation services are complete.

The Pet Loss Professionals Alliance defines private pet cremation as,

“A cremation procedure during which only one animal’s body is present in the cremation unit during the cremation process.”

We certify our private cremations by using our PetTracker360, which is modeled after human funeral home standards. Each pet is assigned a unique PetTracker360 disc, either in front of you or by your veterinary clinic staff. We encourage you to view this disc with your pet. It stays with your pet the entire time they are in our care and is returned with your pet’s ashes.

Your Last Decision is as Important as Your First

Our Caring Team Will Walk You Through the Entire Journey Before and After Cremation

For many of us, pets are important members of our families, and grieving the loss of a pet can be traumatic. Therefore, end-of-life decisions represent the final acts of love and kindness we can show our pets. We are here to assist you, the pet owner, in making those decisions for your loved ones. You will learn about your options in pet cremation, what to consider, questions to ask and what to look for when choosing cremation for your pet.

Our facilities provide pet owners unparalleled service and a state-of-the-art environment, never before offered to metro Atlanta, Charlotte and Hickory pet owners. Co-founder, Christine Hunsaker, successfully ran the largest human cremation company in North America. She has now extended her 20 years of cremation experience to pet lovers. Once we bring your pet into our care, the entire cremation process can usually be handled within 24 – 72 hours. Same day service is available.
