Stories from real customers of Resting Paws Pet Cemetery & Crematorium Inc.
For anyone out there considering Resting Paws as an option for a final resting place for your pet, I can very sincerely recommend the services provided by Patrick and Sabine Couture, owners of Resting Paws. When the eldest of my two beautiful cats left this life coming up to four years ago, the stress was so great – I didn’t know what to do for the best for her. A friend recommended Resting Paws. I called them, and after speaking to Sabine, I felt that this was the ‘right’ choice. She understood where I was ‘at’ and was a tremendous help and comfort. The incredible pain of losing a pet is something both Sabine and Patrick embrace. They are professional, yet compassionate – walking you through the details of how to proceed, yet remaining very connected to what you are going through. And so, when my second cat, a centurion, left me a few months ago just before reaching the age of 21, I had no doubt as to who to contact to make arrangements for her final resting place. Sabine and Patrick provide a rather unique service for pet owners in the capital region. I highly recommend them and Resting Paws.
We knew that some day soon our special pet Isaac would leave us. He was aging fast before our eyes and we knew his day were few. Our daughter told us of your service and through her we were able to have our lovely pet cremated and brought back home to us. It has been very comforting just knowing that he is still with us. Thank you for the kindness shown and the way our Isaac was finally put to rest.
Resting Paws was there for me on one of the worst days of my life. It was one phone call, they took care of the rest. Patrick and Sabine took care of things that I would never have thought of, and went above and beyond to take care of my dog. Not that it was a concern at the time, but this service was less expensive than cremation through my veterinarian. I am very grateful to Resting Paws and would definitely recommend their services.
On March 29/18 we had to say goodbye to our beloved companion, Siku, age 14. We knew the time had come to let her go. Amid the anguish of decision and grief it helped to know that she was treated respectfully by Patrick at Resting Paws who handled the cremation. Resting Paws provides a much needed service to those of us seeking an end of life treatment worthy of the devotion our pets give us. They are as dear to us as any family member. Thank you Patrick.
On March 10th, 2018, we were greeted by two beautiful souls, Roxy and Diego (the owners’ two dogs). They escorted us inside where I was able to witness the cremation of my sweet kitty, Simba, together with two friends of mine. We laid her onto a bed of rose petals and anointed her with Frankincense, Myrrh and incense. Roxy and Diego held space for the beautiful ceremony ever so gently. I love the way the owners handled every detail and all the support I felt in this difficult time. The Mystic Blue urn is beautiful. Thank you!
