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

J & M October 16, 2016 / Ottawa

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.

Thank you so much for your kindness. Your attention to detail and empathy made a difficult period as easy as it could have been. Saying goodbye to Bandit, our ferret, was hard, but we felt we couldn’t have left her memorial in better hands. We are so grateful.


Well, I moved out of my parents’ basement with him, he watched the early years of my child develop, he was right by my side for a good part of my life. I am so thankful that there was a service such as Resting Paws to help me say the proper goodbye to my beloved Charlie. I couldn’t have asked for any more from Resting Paws to make an extremely difficult time as good as it could have been.

I think all these reviews here speak for themselves.

Being a local firm, the experience was much more personal.

Daisy was a very special girl to me. I got her from the Ottawa human society in March 2002. She was 6 months old at the time. I have been so blessed to have had her for 14.5 years of her 15yr life.
We’ve had some good times, some bad times and some sad times but putting it all together made it a wonderful time.
Throughout her life she made lots of people friends, lots of doggie friends and even a few feline friends.
Daisy was a happy dog and deserved the very best right to the end.
On Wednesday, September 21, 2016, this made it even more difficult because it was her 15th birthday, Daisy decided to go meet her friends in doggie heaven.
I cannot think of a better way for my Daisy to celebrate her journey over the Rainbow Bridge than with the help of Patrick & Sabine of Resting Paws Cemetery & Crematorium Inc. who have treated Daisy with the outmost respect and dignity she deserves.
Even Roxy and Diego played a big part in making this difficult time a bit less difficult for me.
I would recommend Resting Paws Cemetery & Crematorium Inc. to anyone who is going through these difficult times.

Patrick and Sabine are such nice people with kindly patience. We are pleasure to know them so we could have a memorable goodbye ceremony to our old friend Jack.
