I am so grateful to Resting Pets for making a very difficult time more bearable for me. My poor dog had a massive seizure and I had to make the decision to let him go on Bank holiday Monday . I had always said he would be laid to rest at home and I would take him on his last journey to Resting Pets myself . Due to the sudden nature of his illness he had to be PTS at the vets . ..how good it was to find out that Resting Pets offer an out of hours service . They had someone meet me there and help gently lay my 50 kg boy safely in the chapel of rest on his own bed . We were given loads of time with him and the lady was kind and respectful . The cremation was done as per my requests and my lad safely handed back to me on Thursday . Thank you so much to all the staff . ...�... See MoreSee Less
Having had a very traumatic passing, i was broken into a million pieces without my once orphaned Greek stray kitten i had by my side for the last 6 years.. Mickey was diagnosed with cancer and within days he was suffering... I was lost at sea, but when i arrived to see Mickey again i felt more at peace to see how beautiful he looked and had time to say goodbye before finally bringing him home with me..
I collected my dog howler today who was like a baby to me after 17 years and you handled me and him with the upmost respect and that helped and the wait for him was only 2/3 days after you got him thank you so much... See MoreSee Less
Excellent staff ,excellent service.We had been looking for a cat urn for our treasured pet to rest in.We wanted to see it before ordering but took the ashes with us to make sure they would all fit inside.We were very pleased when told we could wait and they would put the ashes in for us and inscribe the plaque on the underside straight away.After 30 mins we were able to leave with our pet in a lovely fitting resting place.THANK YOU VERY MUCH....

I have ordered my dogs urn from here as I didn't like the ones available from the crematorium we used. They have been really helpful, advising on sizes etc and very quick to respond. When I phoned to order, the lady was friendly and compassionate. She also gave a courtesy call to let me know it will be with me, recorded delivery tomorrow (which is less than a week). Made an awful task much more bearable, thank you.... See MoreSee Less
