Sorrow and grief are normal and natural responses to death. Like grief for humans, grief for animal companions can only be dealt with over time. Sadly most of us have to make the impossible decision to put our pet to sleep. It is our priority at Pawprints to handle your pet with dignity and respect it deserves. We understand the need for a fast return of your pets ashes and hope your choice of personnel tribute to your beloved pet helps you through your grieving process.
