“The greatness of a nation and it's
moral progress can be judged by
the way it's animals are treated. ”
By M. Ghandi
Paws Memorial Service maintains an open door facility, with a guarantee that your pet will be treated at all times with the utmost respect and dignity. Whether we meet you at our Center, you home or vet clinic, your pet will be carefully placed in a lined basket or casket, and handled at all times with the dignity and respect befitting the family member they are.
Knowing that each family has their own desires when it comes to memorializing their pet, we offer a full spectrum of services and options. We are here to assist you in tailoring a special tribute to meet your wishes and help you through your loss.
Paws Memorial Service performs private cremations one pet at a time. Each pet entrusted to us receives a Paws MedallionSM, a special stainless steel tracking ID system ensuring their safety and positive identification throughout their entire time with us. Additionally, we maintain precise logs and pin chart recording of each and every cremation
Golden Tribute - Privately
With partitioned cremation, your pet will be treated with the same care and
respect as in private cremation, but they will have company during the
cremation process. Pets are individually placed in the crematory with
separation, their location is fully documented and they are carefully
removed, one at a time so as to prevent any major commingling of remains.
Just as in private cremation, each pet will carry their Paws Medallion with
them throughout the entire process and the cremation is pin chart recorded.
The cost for individual cremation is less because you are actually paying for
a proportionate use of space and natural gas; however, it is inevitable and
must be understood that a minimal amount of commingling will occur.
Silver Remembrance – Partitioned
Paws Memorial Service does not participate in or conduct mass or communal cremations due to the rules and regulations currently existing in the State of Texas. Even through we are located on almost 20 pastorial country acres, we are not able to legally scatter or bury the ashes on-site. In order to maintain the highest ethical standards, we have chosen not to participate in disposal of pets at landfills or any Municipal Solid Waste facilities.
Our pets are our family, so we will always want what is best for them. Although it’s difficult to think about, a pet’s life is far shorter than ours. Preplanning for your final journey together eases the stress when it comes to making this difficult and emotional decision. Making advanced arrangements gives you time to carefully compare and select the perfect service that memorializes your special friend. It also gives you a chance to visit our facility and meet the people who will take care of your beloved baby. So when the time comes, you can rest assured that each detail has been met with dignity and respect, insuring a memorial that will leave pawprints on your heart forever.
For the ultimate peace of mind and comfort needed by some, special arrangements can be made for you to witness your pet’s cremation. Additionally, a memorial or remembrance service can often bring needed closure after suffering the loss of a treasured pet. Paws Memorial offers witnessing and ceremonies tailored to your individual wishes upon request.
The decision to euthanize your pet is one of the most difficult things you will ever have to do. Because so many people prefer to say goodbye to their pet in a peaceful, quiet setting, we have almost 20 pastorial acres and a private comfort room available on-site where you can meet with your veterinarian for this purpose. Home euthanasia is also an alternative many owners do not realize they have. Either of these options allows your pet to remain in a more natural environment, eliminating the anxiety many pets face when entering a veterinary clinic. If this is something you prefer, first talk to your personal vet.
“I can’t thank you enough for the ability to say goodbye to her outdoors, in the peaceful country setting of your facility....
You made one of the saddest days of our lives together a beautiful memory.”
