Important Notice:

At Resting Paws Cemetery & Crematorium Inc. we believe that your companion is entitled to a dignified Burial if this is what you would like. The first 2 acres of our 15 acre lot has been landscaped to ensure that your companions’ final resting place will be serene and peaceful. Already clients have said that the property is truly what they envisioned to be proper for their companion.

“We love the story of the ‘Rainbow Bridge’ you shared with us & love to think of Chewy there waiting for us. I imagine it to look very similar to your ‘Resting Paws’ cemetery & even more so as you complete the different stages you have planned for the future!”

At the time of your loss the emotions of the moment can make it easy for you to misunderstand your options. Don’t be afraid to question the person offering you after care options. Only you can decide what is right for your companion. If you need more time to decide, ask for it. If a clinic or provider will not hold your pet, call us at Resting Paws Cemetery & Crematorium Inc. Arrangements can be made to give you the time you need to make an informed decision.

I have pet (companion) insurance. Does it cover aftercare? Check with your policy provider, some plans cover aftercare cost.

Can I provide or build my own burial container? No, because of our environmental friendly approach and our commitment to the city we want to ensure that what is used is biodegradable and that its size remains within the limits of the animal weight.

How long can my companion be kept at your location before burial? We recognize that each situation is different; therefore, arrangements can be made to keep your companion for a reasonable amount of time.

Can I bury my companion with its favorite toy? We want to pride ourselves as an environmentally friendly Cemetery. Therefore, if the toy is biodegradable such as a favorite fetching stick, wool blanket or rawhide bone (yes), if it is made of rubber or synthetic materials (no). To keep the aesthetic appeal of the cemetery, favorite toys can be placed at the burial site, but they will be removed after a week or two.

Can I bury multiple companions in my plot? Yes, if provisions are made for it in the initial contract but extra cost will be charged for the deeper dig. In Natural Burial Areas this will not be possible. See the by-laws for more details.

Can I provide my own plaque or head stone? A selection of makers will be approved for use within the Cemetery depending on the burial area selected. If a comparable product is proposed we will allow it. Wood markers will not be allowed.

With your all inclusive price can I choose the plot location? No, plot allocation will be assigned by cemetery staff.

At Resting Paws Cemetery & Crematorium Inc. we recognize that it will take a few years for the Cemetery to grow its character and become a respected landmark of the National Capital Region. As a new business to Ottawa we want to ensure that pet owners have options available to them at a decent cost to ensure their companions are properly remembered.
