Sunday November 27, 2016 was the saddest day for me. My little Maltese, Sparkles had to be put to sleep due to his suffering from kidney failure. He was just shy of 10 years old. It was fate that made my path cross with Patrick & Sabine’s and I will be forever thankful. Meeting them and getting to know them convinced me that they would take care of my little one when his time came and that is exactly how it was. They comforted me and I felt I was able to let go, knowing Sparkles would be treated with the same care and dignity that I would have treated him with.
Sparkles is back home now in his comfy basket where he spent many hours either curled up dreaming or stretched out on his back just chilling.
I cannot express the gratitude I have towards Patrick & Sabine, not only for their kindness and excellent, professional service but also for recommending Dr. Carmen who came to our home and helped Sparkles move on.
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.
