After Care Options

After losing a loved one you will need to decide on After Care options. You may wish to choose a special spot on your property for home burial. Many people who have this option, and others that do not, choose cremation. Cremation allows more options in time. You may scatter their ashes in one (or more) special spot, keep them close to you in your home, or keep them to bury or scatter elsewhere at a later time.

Home Burial

Choose an appropriate spot and be sure to make the site at least 2 feet deep. It is best to mark the site with a heavy stone, rock or planting. If you would like to see the garden markers offered by White Rose, click here,http://www.whiterosepet.com . Temporary storage is also available, as needed in the winter time. Contact Dr Allen.

Other services offered are through White Rose Pet Memorial Services. The owners, Steve and Marilyn, fully understand the emotional loss in losing a beloved pet. After losing a special feline family member, "Moca Chip", they built the aftercare facility, at their home, to assure other pet owners that their cherished friends would be treated with the honor they earned and deserved. All the animals are handled with utmost respect and dignity. They remain dedicated to providing for the individual wishes and preferences of each pet family.

Private Cremation and Remembrances

Your loved one is kept separate and done individually, to assure that you receive all of their ashes and nothing more. Their ashes are placed inside a beautifully hand carved wooden box, unless you choose another urn.

Art from Ashes is able to integrate a very small amount of your loved ones ashes into unique, handcrafted glass memorials, tokens and treasures.

Communal Cremation

Many pets are cremated together, with one another. Your pet's ashes are not returned but are scattered gently on the tranquil scattering ledges, on the grounds at White Rose.

Testimonials

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Dr Allen is absolutely amazing. I contacted her because my elderly cat Clara was very ill, and needed to be put to sleep. My regular veterinarian did not do House Calls and I wanted Clara's passing to be as comfortable as possible- in her own home, on her own bed, surrounded by peace and love. Dr Allen came to my home within three hours of my phone call. She was overwhelmingly kind to both Clara and me. Clara's passing was completely serene, which was exactly what I wanted. I CAN NOT recommend Dr Allen's veterinary services enough. She is simply a WONDERFUL veterinarian, and all pets deserve a doctor like her."
