START A FRANCHISE
Since 1997, our founder has been providing full-service memorialization for pets of every description. Our high-quality cremation, personalized urns, and a wide variety of memorial items help pet owners and their families express their feelings, pay tribute, reflect, and celebrate their pets' lives. They also help providers such as veterinary clinics, funeral homes, and other pet service businesses aid the families they serve during this difficult time.
The Paws & Remember concept began as the result of a simple request from a friend that helped identify a market need. After years of work in the funeral services industry, it was clear to the founding members that no one was offering a dignified manner of providing death care and memorialization services for pets. Pet owners were seeking options in their times of grief but didn’t always know where to turn or what was available. Veterinarians and other providers also needed a simplified way to provide their families with appropriate solutions.
There are many benefits of joining Paws & Remember, including:
A growing number of passionate pet owners who are spending more money on their pets and demanding more specialized pet services.
