Professional, understanding, and most of all, compassionate

We, the Espiritu Family, would like to say thank you so much for being professional, understanding, and most of all, compassionate of our feelings. Our loss of our beloved ‘Ruffy' was very hard for us to take. It was good to know that he was in good hands until the day we received his ashes. Once again we thank you all so much.

Can’t thank you enough

I want to thank you all for your kindness, respect, sympathy – and for taking care of 'Squirt' for me. I had him a little over 15 years, and it has been a very difficult time, especially with my husband dying in July. Your thoughtfulness has been mentioned many times by my daughter and me. Can't thank you enough.

They answered endless questions

The folks at Homeward Bound have cremated two of our beloved dogs after their passing. They were so kind and considerate. They answered endless questions, and were flexible and attentive to our unusual situation. I recommend these folks unconditionally! They are wonderful!


It is difficult to let go of a beloved pet

I have worked with Homeward Bound for almost five years. I have always been impressed in the compassion and respect they provide for our patients and clients. It is difficult to let go of a beloved pet and being able to assure owners that their loved one is being well cared for is a great comfort. I trust them to provide the level of professionalism and understanding we need in our clients' time of grief. I would use no other company.

The staff is very caring and professional

The loss of a loved companion is never easy and the ensuing grief makes it difficult to make decisions regarding the aftercare of a pet's remains. The doctors and staff at Clearview Animal Hospital, P.C. have chosen Homeward Bound as the only pet cremation service they use or recommend. Their mission statement states that "we care for your pets like they were our own" and I can attest to the truth of that statement knowing the owners on a personal basis for nearly forty years. The staff is very caring and professional and I can assure pet owners that their needs during such a difficult trial will be met with compassion and understanding.

Thank you!

We took our Beta fish there and even though he was just a little thing, they were so caring and compassionate. I could tell they truly care and I thank you very much for that!!!

Maggie Mae

I put my sweet, little Maggie Mae to sleep on Thursday March 1, 2018. The beginning of her life was as a barn cat, not fixed, having litter after litter of kittens. She brought them over to one of my clients house for safety. I took one of the kittens home. About 4 months later in a terrible spring snow storm, she went to my clients home wanting in. My client called me and asked if I wanted her. I said yes. That was in 2005. She loved me. She slept with me every night. She would put her paw on my lips and I would kiss them.
Over the past few days I was wondering what I would put her ashes in. I was worried it wouldn't be pretty enough for her. I have no idea why it bothered me so with her. First thing I did in the vets office was open the bag to see. I was overwhelmed. It was so her. A beautiful little box with craved flowers on the top.
It is so perfect.
Thank you.

I had to say goodbye to my best friend of 12 years on October 1st of 2017. Homeward Bound handled the cremation and return of her remains in a sensitive, timely and efficient manner. There was a misspelling on the paw print and plaque for her remains and they took care of it without hesitation. She will always be in my heart and mind and I look forward to the day we meet again at Rainbow Bridge. I highly recommend Homeward Bound when the time comes to say goodbye to your loved one. I will be contacting them when that time comes again.

A Peaceful Release

My more than beloved companion and medical bird of 27 years passed last August. I am just beginning another stage of recovery. He moved in 27 years ago because his caretakers were going to put him down. He never left because no one wanted him and then we fell in love. He was a Buddhist as he chanted a short Buddhist mantra very often. I followed Buddhist tradition of letting his body cool for three days and then called saying I was going to come to the cremation as I wanted to read the Blue Sutra for him. I was treated with great respect and compassion as I gathered not to many come to the ceremony. For me it was a celebration of the finality of this life where his health was rapidly declining and the freedom of the next without physical restraint. Homeward Bound could have not been more supportive for this ceremony and the peaceful release that it brought that day in mid-August. The Best
