They really treat everyone with exceptional care, concern and sincerity

The wonderful people who run Homeward Bound have now taken care of cremating two of our dearly loved dogs. We lost Bismarck in 1999 and Buddy in 2012 and in each instance these wonderful people were caring, compassionate and considerate. They answered all our concerns while constantly offering several options for almost anything we wanted to do to honor the love we shared with our furry friends. We're sure they see all ranges of reactions from customers in full grief from losing an animal companion (and we sure were making a mess of ourselves too) but they really treat everyone with exceptional care, concern and sincerity. Not only are all the people terrific but the facility itself is clean and comfortable, the equipment is modern and maintained, the steps they follow seem very strict and guaranteed to get the right pets to the right people and they are happy at any time to fully explain everything while you wait for your friend's ashes. It is always an awful thing to lose an animal companion but thank goodness that Homeward Bound makes it as easy as possible to go through all that while truly honoring the friendship, love, memories and times shared. I really recommend Homeward Bound.


Thanks for caring for our little kitty

Thanks for caring for our little kitty Eli, he was precious to us in more ways than we can count, and I'm so glad you were there for him and that we will always have him with us…thank you so much. The Mitchell's


From pet “parents” to pet “widowers” would be nearly impossible without all of you

To our vet, Dr. James Watson and the staff at Homeward Bound, the transition from pet "parents" to pet "widowers" would be nearly impossible without all of you. Our beloved Yogi (funniest tabby cat ever!) and Mousie (our rescued, green eyed beautiful calico), have been in the hands of the most wonderful people and we are forever grateful for your kindness, and selfless acts to grieving pet parents.

We will use them again in a time of grief

A year ago my Amazon parrot passed too young and unexpectedly. The staff at Homeward Bound were very supportive and respected my baby. I was such a mess when I dropped her off to them, that I could hardly answer some of the questions they were asking, so my husband was answering for me. She had a band on her one leg and they were going to take it off of her before cremating her, but they couldn't unless they broke her leg and respectfully they left her band on her and let me know when I picked her up in her beautiful urn and I was very glad that they were so respectful to her and I about the band. A few weeks after bringing her home and putting her on my shelf surrounded by my angel collection, I came home and found her urn on the floor opened and was afraid to even go look at the floor and to my surprise no ashes on the floor, they had put her ashes in a bag and used a twistie tie and around the twistie tie was Java's ID band, of course the numbers were burnt off, but it was the niceness of the staff to grab her band after cremation and tie it to the little baggie inside of her urn that made me happy. I would highly recommend these guys in the loss of a family pet. I have told many friends and they have used them as well and really liked the staff there too. We will use them again in a time of grief for our beloved family pets. Thank you so much Homeward Bound staff for taking care of my baby.

Thank you so much for the respect you gave

The day I lost Missi I left her in the capable hands of her doctor, Dr. Monyek. He said you would take good care of her and return her to me. You did that…and with great class. Other places would return the pet in a plastic bag in a box—I was happily surprised to see you returned my baby to me in a beautiful gray urn. Thank you so much for the respect you gave her.

Thank you

Thank you for everything you did for our family. I was not able to talk from all the crying and you guys took care of everything. Thank you for not blowing me off and answering all my questions in my time of need. You treated Pepe' like a family member not an "animal". Thank you!

Thank you!

We chose to cremate our beloved cat Fluffy through our Veterinary Santis Pet Clinic. Fluffy passed on April 16, 2018 he got cremated April 18th and we got him back April 25th and I couldn't be any happier with your service. We weren't expecting the clay with his paw print which also had a piece of his fur. That just made me feel much better. We got him home now and got his paw print as memory. Thank you very much for doing that and for Taking care of our baby Fluffy. You are truly Appreciated ❤????

Thank you!

Lasting Paws is the only company that we would trust with our beloved Muffy. When that time came, we were assured that she'd be treated as one of their own. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
