Know Your Provider - Know What Your Final Wishes Will Be
It is important to find out who is actually taking care of your pet. Get the name, location and phone number of the provider. At Paws Memorial Service, your pet is cremated at our facility and under our supervision, at one location.
A crematory provider should fully identify and define for you their cremation options and associated definitions (private, individual, communal, disposal). Be aware that "individual" cremation does not always mean private; "private" does not always mean one at a time.
A reputable provider should be able to give information regarding their services and prices in writing.
If you are not permitted to inspect the operation of a potential provider, at your convenience, you probably should not trust them to take care of your pet. For your ultimate peace of mind, Paws Memorial Service highly recommends and invites you to tour our facility, understand the process and get to know who will be taking care of your special family member. We maintain a full disclosure, open door policy. There are no secrets in what we do.
At Paws Memorial Service, arrangments can be made for you to witness your pet's private cremation. Your ultimate peace of mind is important to us.
We recognize the need for closure. Private cremations are available for pickup at our facility within 24-48 hours.
Final disposition of cremains not returned to the owner should be specified in writing and provide for a dignified location were the owner can visit at will to pay their respects. Unfortunately, in the State of Texas, pet's cremains are considered waste and, unless returned to the owner, must be disposed of by crematory providers in compliance with Title 30 TAC Chapter 330 covering Municipal Solid Waste.
