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

I cannot thank Patrick and Sabine enough for their wonderful and personalised service. Our dearest cat Cartman passed away last Sunday at 19 years of age, and I had done some research online so I knew who to call when it inevitably happened. My husband phoned before we went in to the vet to arrange for Cartman to be picked up, and they went to get him the next morning. We opted to have the private cremation with the visitation and I was very happy with the service provided. Patrick was so kind and professional. He answered any questions we had and made us all feel very comfortable there. He treated our companion with compassion and the dignity that we needed to begin the healing process. We were provided with a lot of information on grieving and the urn we got for Cartman is absolutely beautiful and perfect. Patrick makes them himself. I am so glad to have this service offered close to home. Cartman is now back with us where he belongs. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. ~The Browns

Thanks to both of you, Patrick and Sabine, for the care and consideration you’ve shown us as we’ve said good-bye to our little (and not-so-little!) furry companions. The hugs are especially appreciated. 🙂

My long time friend Lexie passed away this month. Lexie was with me constantly, she was a therapy dog at Unitarian House of Ottawa and will be missed by many seniors. Making that final decision for a friend is difficult but I was lucky to have Sabine and Patrick’s support. Resting Paws does not just provide a service to people they provide loving support and kindness. Lexie’s ashes are now buried in her favourite garden at the cottage.

Resting Paws provided exactly what I needed and more when my beloved cat died. With immediate understanding and great compassion during this upsetting time, Sabina took over the necessary arrangements and followed through until I had the precious urn with me. The mementos are lovely; a paw print and very tasteful urn for the ashes. I unequivocally recommend Resting Paws.

In July of 2016, we lost our beloved dog, Théo, to prostate cancer. This was an extremely difficult time for us as he was only 9 years old and he rapidly declined after his diagnosis.
It was a comfort to be able to be present at his cremation. Patrick and Sabine offered us the opportunity to say goodbye in a tasteful, friendly environment where we could ask questions and get answers about the whole process. Theo’s remains are now in our home in a beautifully engraved urn. We appreciate our lovely marble urn with Theo’s likeness every day when we are in our living room. The pick-up of his body went smoothly and Patrick has an easy going manner that reduces the stress of the entire procedure that accompanies death.
From the moment we called Resting Paws to the moment we received his ashes everything went smoothly and we felt that the body of our friend was treated respectfully. We are very pleased with the service that we received and highly recommend them.
