Stories from real customers of Resting Paws Pet Cemetery & Crematorium Inc.

It’s taken me a while to write as I just couldn’t put into words my thanks without starting to cry. From my first email to the day I returned to pick up my precious Annabelle’s ashes, Sabine and Patrick were there for me. The loss of my dearest companion was so emotionally difficult and I was overwhelmed by the grief and sadness. The only thing that made it bearable was the people who surrounded me during this time. Sabine received my pet with reverence and when I was given back her ashes, it was in a beautiful velvet bag. That was in February (2021) and I have finally now, in May, been able to lay her to rest in my garden. She is sprinkled under a beautiful hosta and her place marked on the fence with a small cross. She is with me and is loved.

Thank you so very much.


Just want to thank Patrick for the great care he took with my little guy Odin. Very personalized service and care.

Marlyn, Earl & Kramer

After an unexpected surgery, resulting from an unexpected health condition left our beloved Boxer dog, Kramer, in a serious health condition but his prognosis was favourable and expected to fully recover.

Kramer was a big boy, he weighed 120 pounds and was a rescue dog. We had the good fortune of rescuing him at five and a half months old, thanks to our fabulous Veterinarian.

Kramer was a gentle giant and would not hurt a fly.

Unfortunately Kramer passed in the morning of February 22nd 2021 after being at home for only three days after his surgery.

Since Kramer has now departed us he must now travel to the Rainbow Bridge alone.

Once Kramer arrives at the Rainbow Bridge he will have plenty of time to lookup and meet his six sisters who travelled there before him. While all seven are together waiting for their forever parents to arrive, they will have plenty of time to play and frolic in the sun together and discuss their living with us, their forever parents.

When we both pass-on we will be heading first to the Rainbow Bridge to be united with all seven of our departed Boxers. Once there, and spotted, we are very sure we will be “attacked” with love, kisses and tears from all seven of our pets. ( Boxer dogs are known to shed tears of joy and sorrow)

When we are all united again all of us will be crossing the Rainbow Bridge heading for the land where there is never any pain again, all medical problems are erased and life is everlasting.

The morning that Kramer passed-on it was then we discovered that the crematorium we used in the past was no longer in business, it has been purchased

and controlled by a conglomerate. This news left us in a difficult spot.

Searching for another pet crematorium on the internet was virtually useless, all had conditions we were not in favour of. That was until we contacted Resting Paws.

Resting Paws were exactly what we wanted, we knew from the first minute we talked to Sabine. She was understanding, helpful and a pleasure to talk to from her very first word.

Plans were made for a private cremation in two days, the exact way we had hoped for and planned. Complete arrangements were finalized by phone including the day and time for the cremation of Kramer to take place.

The day of the cremation we arrived at the site and met with Patrick. The two-dog welcoming committee greeted us as we arrived. The two dogs were a welcome site.

After the cremation had taken place Patrick had everything completed. The remains were in the urn, paper work completed and everything neatly placed in a bag for travelling safely home.

Our dealing with Sabine and Patrick at Resting Paws was nothing short of professionalism in the highest degree. All facets of Kramer’s cremation was perfect and we were more that pleased.

It is for sure if we need that type of service in the future Resting Paws will be the one we will contact. If friends of ours are in need of this service we will highly recommend Resting Paws to them.

In closing we want to thank you both, Sabine & Patrick, for your outstanding service and compassion when a dearly beloved family member of ours, Kramer, has departed us.

Special Thanks to Sabine and Patrick.

Marlyn, Earl and Kramer.

Dear Patrick & Sabine,
Dale & I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for taking such exceptional care of our baby, Whisper.
You did an amazing service for us & Whisper. The pictures definitely show the care you put into your love of animals. Whisper looked so cleaned up and beautiful in the pictures you sent.

We’d like to thank you again for your services.
It was, hard, yet so nice to be met by your own dogs when driving in.

We will definitely suggest you – and ONLY you to anyone looking for services that only you can provide. You really made a huge impression on both of us.

Thanks Again
Tammy & Dale.
Whisper too.
