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.
