Lovely & Thoughtful

Well, it all happened so fast.... my sweet little Miss Ginger cat of almost 17 years suddenly went in to kidney failure. I gave her lots of love, we made it through Christmas, and just couldn't bear the thought of her suffering, so made the call to the vet. The decision is always such a terrible one to have to make...watch them suffer oR take them in to be euthanized. She passed over to the rainbow bridge beautifully and peacefully at the vets the following morning. First class all the way in their "comfort room". my heart still just broke. But the nicest surprise was the binder of options for cremation that the vet's office had me look at. I chose the small tan urn and Ginger's pawprint keepsake. By Wednesday, the vet called and said GINGER's remains were ready to be picked up! I couldn't MusTER the strength to pick her up until today. I shed tears being handed the blue bag at the vet and I expressed my appreciation to them. I was happy to bring Ginger home again. But it wasn't until the quiet calm of this evening when I took a deep breath, finally looked inside the beautiful blue bag, and oh my.... Beyond any kind of expectation I may have had! What a beautiful little urn inside a soft velvet bag and the urn actually had her name engraved on it! Even the satin bag inside the urn with the remains is a lovely touch. The paw print keepsake even had her name on it in a classy blue box with silver tie/bow. And the special certificate and pamphlets on grieving were very much appreciated. Thank you for the service you provide and the care you put in to honoring our loved ones. It means the world. I'm just so happy to have Ginger home again.

We lost our precious Tucky Dec 3rd after a short 2 month battle with osteosarcoma. It was an ABSOLUTE shock to lose an otherwise HEALTHY 5 year old pitty. A short 5 days later our boy was returned to us. To tell you how comforting it was to see the heartfelt care that was given to our pupper is an underStatement. We cannot thank you enough for the dignity you bestowed on our beloved Tucky. You made this a beaUtiful exPerience and we thank you for the service you prOvide at such a difficult time in our lives

My sweet mini me

On june 15th, 2022 i lost my sweet mini me to sudden kidney failure. That was the worst day of my life and the hardest decision i have ever had to make. The vet clinic she was at where all amazing and sweet. I choose to have my girl cremated and a paw print done. A week later i got a call that i could go pick my girl up and the bag i received was more then i expected. From the beautiful bag to the hand carved box with her name engraved and the paw print so beautifully Wrapped with care it was more then i imagined. You could just tell the love,care and respect me and my sweet girl were given. She will always be loved and missed. Mini me (3/24/2010-6/15/2022)
Thank you so much!

Hendrix “Heni”

We lost our kitty, Hendrix, last week after twelve years of so much love. Hendrix was incredibly special to us, as he was our first pet together and we were the three amigos for so long. Today I received a package to my door, not expecting it since I was going to go pick him up instead, but comforted that he was home once again and that we didn’t have to make the drive and feel that sadness. We didn’t purchase a urn, although they are beautiful, because we are going to bury him when we are able. I am so impressed with the package we received. The container is beautiful, the certificate meaningful, and the clay paw print made our hearts so happy. You don’t even know how special this is to us. I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Thank you Jesse, so much for everything you did for me and my girl Fable. Though after a month I’m still struggling and heart broken, you gave me something I can hold that makes her feel just a little bit closer. To future clients, the sterling pendants are beautiful! I very highly recommend the custom paw print. I never expected to get so attached to a piece of jewelry like I did this one. It means everything to me. The cedar box with Fable’s name etched on the top is also very beautiful, as is the clay paw print. I’m so incredibly grateful to Lasting Paws and the service they provide. Because of them, Fable is home.

Such care and dignIty

I lost my beloved Gizmo last week. Being 15 and in ill health, I knew our good bye was drawing near. But the day we had to say goodbye was unbearable. I never sobbed so hard in my life. I was a mess picking out Gizmo’s aftercare arrangements. I wasn’t in the right mind but I mustered up strength to do so. Just a quick 4 days later I received Gizmo’s remains. The beautiful, tasteful bag was packed with such loving care and perfect attention to detail. Such an elegant, meaningful tribute to my beloved dog. The cedar box with his nickname engraved on top plus his paw imprint bring me so much comfort in my grief. I am so glad I was able to choose a private cremation… sadly, we have all heard stories of callousness. But Lasting Paws provided what I requested and I can draw peace knowing my boy is home with me again. Thank you again for making a lovely tribute to my dear, sweet Gizmo.


Wonderful care with our little guy Salei

Such loving care given with Salei. Thank you for your caring. Your service was wonderful.

Favorite Dawg

There are no words that can justify the warmth and love that a person feels when they decide on Lasting Paws. I lost my Jethro in October, after sharing over twelve years together. And I do mean together. In 12 years we were only apart a total of 16 days. Sherri deserves the wings of an Angel for her compassion and outright tenderness to my situation. She allowed me to sit and ramble on about my favorite dawg, with intense curiosity which helped in Jethro, not by my side. I'm still not over my loss, yet it's getting better, enough for me to type this. Thank you so much for the respect and sincerity Lasting Paws showed us. I just wish you could have known Jethro. He wasn't just my dog, he was my Jethro.
