Pet Services

Pets Are Family Members Too

Resthaven is proud to offer services for the pet members of our families, including Pet Cremation, our Petland Garden and Columbarium, and our new Garden of Faithful Friends, which uniquely allows for both pet and human family members.

Why offer services for pets?

Resthaven Memorial Gardens introduced the Petland garden in 1974, after many of our property owners expressed dismay that there were no satisfactory options concerning final arrangements for their pets. Due to city regulations, housing developments, homeowners associations etc..., digging a hole in the yard, was not a feasible option. In addition, as our society is more mobile, moving to new residences becomes more common.

Resthaven was also the first in our area to offer onsite cremation in 1986. As cremation became more requested amongst families we served, we added our pet crematory as well.

Resthaven has even made national news in recent years with our most recent extension of options for pet loving families, the Garden of Faithful friends. The Garden of Faithful Friends is nearly unique in its mission to offer an area for pets and their human family members to be interred together. Each space in the Garden of Faithful Friends is large enough to accommodate both a traditional burial for the pet “parent” as well as space for one’s pet(s), accommodating up to the largest size dogs. . The bronze feature in the center of the garden symbolizes the unconditional love our pets have helped up know and cherish throughout the ages. All forms of internment, from traditional burial, cremation and even mausoleum entombment for families and pets is offered in this garden.
