Our Dog PawPaw was euthanized on Jan. 12, 2021. He was born on May 5, 2004 and was nearly 17 years old. He was a small orange chihuahua who was the best part of my life. While he was not buried here, he was buried at home, and I needed to put everything about how much I love him somewhere. I wish that I had put him in a cemetery so that I could keep coming to see him even after many years. So basically, I would love to thank you guys for doing this. It means so much to everyone who has suffered loss like this.

We are so grateful for the service you provided for our little "Bear". Thank you for the kindness, resect and such caring services we received we called you at 4:00 in the morning to go and pick up our little Buddy in Wilson that went to be with Jesus. We will never forget you, Steven and Heather. Also, we appreciate Jeffrey the day we came to view Bear. He was so wonderful to us. We love you all. Never will forget you!

This was my first experience taking a pet to a crematory and burial. The Howell's were very professional and provided great quality. There were very friendly and treated my dog Capone with the same care as they would a human. I'm very thankful for their services definitely on a Sunday and making the process a little more bearable. They were helpful and wanted to help anyway they could. Thank you, for your kindness and condolences though my difficult time.

Love, Katherine

Thank you for offering this service locally. The compassion shown to us meant so much. The day I went to get her touched my heart tremendously. Beautiful!

A simple thank you seems very inadequate for the comfort, care and respect shown to us by Heather and Steve Howell and the staff of Animal Care Crematory. We've had pets to die in the past but this was our first experience having to put a pet down and having her cremated. You seemed to know how hard it was for us and to you it didn't matter if it was a pet or a person the care shown was the same. When we changed our mind about the picture to be used on the obituary you changed it with no problem. When I couldn't get the pictures to post on the web page I sent them to you and you quickly sent a reply, "No problem, taken care of." The next day Steve called to tell us Eve's cremains were ready to be picked up. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised to see he had taken the time to carefully place her urn on a table with her blanket, a rose and a black toy dog the same color as Eve in a private room. The obituary page has been most comforting. We were able to share her obit on social media with our friends so they would know about the passing of our daughter. As of today there have been over 50 people that have posted condolences and/or lit a candle in memory of Eve. It helps ease our pain knowing others care and took the time to show it. We are fortunate to have the special service of Animal Care Crematory so close by home. Many of our friends have already said they want this for their pet when that time comes. Thank you Steve and Heather Howell for the care and compassion you showed toward us in our time of grief. It didn't go unnoticed and will never be forgotten. May God continue to bless you with the knowledge and ability of helping comfort others.

I can never thank you enough for this service. I can't believe the peace it has brought to me. Just seeing the lit candles for Honey have given me joy knowing that others care enough to at least do something so simple as click a button. Again, thank you for assisting me in my first step toward healing. I will be referring my friends who have family pets and may need your services.

Thank you so much for the marker you had fixed for me to put on the grave of Jazz.

My family was so pleased with it and thought it was a thoughtful thing to do to remember their pet.

May God continue to bless you and your family in a special way.



We would like to express our sincere appreciation for your kindness during our recent loss of Sebastian. Your thoughtfulness, caring and compassion will not be forgotten.

When we left Sebastian in your care, we took comfort in the fact that we felt we had left him in very capable and caring hands. You eased our burden of handling his final departure. For that, we are extremely grateful.

Thank you,
