Would like to thank you for the kindness and understanding when Skye came to you. You made a difficult time better by explaining everything and reassuring me that she was in good hands. Thanks again xx... See MoreSee Less
I cannot praise Resting Pets enough. We were devastated when we lost our Blue. A very nice lady from Resting Pets called to talk about the various options for cremation. She was so understanding. She understood that it felt like we had lost a close family member and she was very respectful of that fact. She spoke about Blue in those terms and we were grateful for that. We made our choices based on the information she gave us. We were very pleased when we saw the beautiful way that Blue's ashes were presented. We wanted half of her ashes in a very small granite puff heart and half in a cardboard box for scattering in her favourite places. Everything was done just as we had asked. The packaging was beautiful and simple. This is just how we wanted Blue to be treated - with respect and dignity - just as we would one of our human family members. Thank you so much...

We lost our beautiful boy Ozzy, and rest in pets were great from the start they collected him and laid him in the chapel of rest for us to say our final goodbyes. They were very professional and understanding, and have hand delivered our boy back to the vets with a lovely casket and clay foot print that we ordered, all lovely packaged and just so glad to have him back where he belongs ....Thank you again xx...

My greyhound was cremated here. Chapel of rest is exactly the same as it is for humans and professional service, very caring. They also took a paw print from her as well. I would recommend. They gave me back her collar and bed and we chose a biodegradable urn which contained seeds to grow when placed in the ground. They made a hard situation a little bit easier to bear....

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
