Precious Paws and Claws specializes in private cremation services, which means each pet is cremated individually.  We strive to return your pet's cremains within 3 to 5 days for proper closure.  Next day service is available on a limited basis.  All of our equipment is the best available and very environmental friendly. We personally clean the equipment between each pet to ensure your pet's cremains are as pure as possible.  We treat every pet with the respect and dignity as if they were our own pet.

We include a traditional cedar chest with lock.  Our urns include an engraved brass plate with the pet's name, date of death, and memory .  We also include a certificate of cremation and a copy of the Rainbow Bridge Poem.
