Aftercare is not able to accept large animals (over 20 pounds) at this time. Until further notice, our aftercare service is limited to animals weighing 20 pounds or less (cats and small dogs).

Due to high demand, our waiting list for smaller animals is currently 5-6 weeks. We apologize for any inconvenience and sincerely appreciate your patience.

Please consider these alternate services in the interim:

  • Whispering Pines Pet Cemetery, Sebastopol 707-823-5735
  • My Pets Cemetery, Petaluma 707-762-6743

We will update this information when our full range of service opens up again. Thank you again for your understanding.
