So I have to give a massive shoutout to Pet Pilgrimage. Sadly, my oldest dog jack passed suddenly on Thursday night/ Friday morning.
Within the brief time that I arrived home and found him, grieved for a bit while on the phone with my dad, I looked up a 24 hour pet cremation service. It was 1:30 in the morning, I couldn’t exactly just start digging a hole in my landlords yard to bury a massive rottie/mastiff mix. They arrived at my house within an hour of my call to them. The two gentleman who showed up were some of the most respectful people I had come across, they gave me all the time I needed to be okay with them taking my beloved pet away, and they did the same for my other dog, Bella, who was concerned for her brothers well being.
They had the cremation done within a day, and I didn’t have time to pick him up until today. Upon arrival, this is the package I was greeted with. The urn was hand carved and they included a paw print and tuft of his hair as well as a hand written card, an offer for grief counseling and much more.
I’m fully aware that losing a pet is not something anyone dares think about, but honestly this service made the whole ordeal so much less stressful and allowed me plenty of time to grieve on my own time and know my pet was taken care of. This is not a paid endorsement by them, and anyone who knows me knows that I don’t brag about services often. They truly gave me an experience that I feel others should know about.
