Welcome to Paws To Rest

Our pets are part of the family. 

They are our playmates, friends and companions. When the time comes for parting, we experience genuine feelings of grief and loss. 

We know it is important that you feel clear in your mind how and where you would like your pet to be laid to rest.

Sympathetic professional service

Paws to Rest offer both a discreet and dignified private and professional Cremation and Burial service for your pet.

We pride ourselves in carrying out the wishes of our bereaved pet owners with dignity, care and respect.

APPCC Members

About Us
