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


Patrick and Sabine helped us a great deal when our beloved German Shepard Max had to be put to sleep very quickly, because of a tumour. I knocked on their door, and they showed compassion and kindness. Thank you to both of you.

I am very happy with my pets and that I found the Resting Paws. I came across it by accident. But I was always told God works in mysterious ways and now I am happy and satisfied that 3 of my pets were cremated and I have their ashes now. I was very happy with what Patrick and Sabrina did. My cat Katrina died in my apartment and I called Sabrina to come and pick her up and she treated Katrina like she was still alive and I wasn’t shocked at that time to see that. And I had two other pets cremated. If it wasn’t for Patrick or Sabina you would have to pay tons of money at the vet clinic to get your animals ashes back. If anybody needs a cremation for their pets I recommend to go see Patrick and Sabina they are the best people to have for your pets. I love you guys very much caring for my animals. The day when I went and got my cat Katrina‘s ashes I was still upset but they have two dogs that will greet you and help you get over your loss of your pet special The black dog he or she was faithful and when I started crying the dog is there to make you pet him or her so if anybody tells you that dogs don’t know anything that’s not true these two dogs know what you’re feeling and will help you deal with your pain.

Je tiens à remercier Patrick et Sabine pour le service de crémation de mon petit chien Toby. Vous avez été plus qu’à la hauteur de mes attentes par votre professionnalisme, votre empathie et votre amour des animaux. Vous avez offert respect et dignité à mon Toby chéri et cela était primordial pour moi. L’urne est très belle et Toby est de retour à la maison. Merci du fond du coeur.

Can’t say enough good things about Resting Paws, which makes this difficult to write.

When we lost our first pet Charlie a couple of years ago, we we’re devastated and quite frankly lost as to what to do.

Not knowing if there even was such a thing, we started looking around for a crematorium for pet’s and ran across Resting Paws.

So we placed the call. Compassionate, Knowledgeable, Caring, amazing really!

Sabine & Patrick welcomed us and guided us though every step, they seemed to make our loss a little more manageable. We have since lost another member of our family, but this time were a little more prepared. Charlie and Benjie are now back home with us in their beautiful complementary urns. Losing a pet is an extremely hard hard thing to go though, they can and will help you though it. Thank you for being there in our time of need.

Dear Resting Paws,

Thank you for being an important part of Indie’s end of life care. From my sobbing phone call of scheduling her cremation with Sabine who was so compassionate, calm and understanding of me wanting an early morning appointment – to Patrick who kept us company during and shared a bit about the cemetery and business while we waited for the cremation to finish – to Roxy and Diego who greeted us as we pulled into the property and gave us lots of happy tail wags. We felt apart of a large family of caring individuals and it made the day of my baby’s cremation a lot easier for us to grieve.

I would recommend Resting Paws to everyone needing closure and peace at the end of their pets life.

Patrick hand-makes the wooden urns and Indie’s is stunning and personalized to perfection that I will cherish for the rest of my life. We couldn’t have asked for a better private cremation experience out in Woodlawn. Thank you Patrick and Sabine, from the bottom of our hearts – thank you for the little take home gift bag that kept my mind occupied on the drive home. Great service and business. You made a long lasting impression and difference in our lives! ♥️🐾
