Good afternoon: I just wanted to reach out to you and thank you so much for coming out and being so compassionate to Cooper and our family during this exceptionally difficult time. Thank you so much for the beautiful urn! The gentleman who came to pick Cooper up was so kind and so compassionate and this was the hardest decision for our family to make but we know it was the right one and just want to thank you so much for everything. So again ... just wanted to thank you so so much! Warmest regards, D. FletcherD. Fletcher
Kurt, I want to thank you. Words would not even begin to describe the relief, satisfaction and happiness I am feeling. The comfort you provided over the phone was just what I needed. I wanted to do the best for our boy. The way you spoke seemed like you care, the patients you held talking to me gave me such a good feeling. I am so happy I selected your place as the one to go. Sam did a phenomenal job assisting us and assuring our boy Rocky was well. He was very kind, very understanding and patient. This was so difficult for us. I couldn’t ask for a better team to assist with this hard and final goodbye. I know and understand he’s gone and it’s just a body but he means the world to our family. I am so lucky to have found your service. I wanted to personally email you to say thank you! You guys are a great team. Best Regards, Dominik B.Dominik B.
Dear Jose: Thank you for making it easy for me to say "goodbye" to my Diamond. Thank you for helping me.Carrion family March 28, 2020
Today, my friend Molly passed away and I was lucky to find your place of services in Secaucus, NJ. I have nothing but such a great admiration for the way your staff conducted themselves and the way that they show they care about your situation and the way that they make a situation so awful as to lose a pet friend, so easy to approach and the delicate way that they have when they try to explain your services, the steps that we have to take. Your staff empathy makes the difference, it is not a business, is a place of healing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.Mauro Oliva August 06, 2019
I lost my babygirl after 13.5 years with me last night at almost midnight. I called Pet Rest this morning and was attended by Cody. He made these services so easy and smooth I can't thank him enough for making this dreadful process so transparent and easy for me during my very difficult time. Brian assisted use during the services and he was very compassionate, accommodating and we never felt rushed or anything. These people are amazing and very professional. I'm so thankful I found out about this place. They permitted us to stay 45 min with my baby girl then proceed to private cremation. After 1.5 hours, I had my beautiful Dolce back with me in a beautiful wooden box with an engraving. They had many urn/necklace options. for you to select from. Thank You so much to the entire staff for making my final farewell to my princess so smooth. Forever thankful for this place and their staff for assisting me during a very challenging time. I'm forever thankful!Lissette November 27, 2018
Dear Kurt, I would like to thank your entire staff for helping our family through a very difficult weekend. On Thursday, January 11 we lost our 16 year old dog. Sandy was with our family since she was 5 weeks old. She passed peacefully at home and with your help we were able to have her finish her time here confident that you and your staff would take such good care of her. Thank you so much. Sunday, January 14th my daughters dog Mikey passed away from a long illness. Mikey died at home, I had fostered him when he was just born and he has been with us everyday of his life. I have been volunteering at the Bergen County Animal Shelter for over 16 years, fostering Moms and their puppies is what I do there, among other things too. I have seen you come and pick up beloved pets that have passed and each and everytime you handle them as if they were your own. Unfortunately over the past few years we have lost 3 other dogs and you have cremated them all. Thank you so much for giving us the peace of mind that they finished their journey in your hands. Sincerely, Donna WoodsDonna January 14, 2018
Dear Caroline and Kurt, I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for the compassion, respect, and professionalism exuded during Mju's cremation. Mju succumbed to mesenteric lymphoma (after a brave 23 month long battle) the day before the cremation (Friday 7/28/2017 a bit shy of 4 pm). We expected him to pass since his health rapidly failed in the last week despite all medical interventions. It was extremely traumatic for our family and we didn't expect him to pass on that particular day. I rescued Mju (pronounced Mew- it's Norwegian for meow) from from a kill shelter as a 9 week old kitty on the day he was scheduled to be euthanized. He earned his name from the car ride home (that's all he uttered the entire way home). I had him for almost 14 years and he put my shadow out of business 😊 When he passed, it was the end of the work week almost about closing time for most places. I quickly called a renowned Pet Cemetery in Westchester located not too far from me. I was treated quite rudely when I inquired about the cremation process and if I could schedule one the next day. The person who answered the phone stated that he was leaving in 15 minutes and asked if I could call back on Monday. He further explained that he didn't believe there was an opening for another week and that I wouldn't be able to pick up Mju's remains for another 3 days after the cremation. I performed a google search after that phone call and Pet Rest in Peace appeared in the results. Kurt expressed his condolences and gave me ample time to compose myself on the phone. I am forever grateful for your kindness. He informed me that there was an opening the next morning. We arrived the following morning with Mju and Caroline was exceptionally empathetic and understanding as well. She explained the process and made it seamless. We were able to leave with Mju's remains less than 90 minutes after we arrived. Thank you so much for helping us navigate through these incredibly challenging times. I am fortunate to have retained your services and would recommend your business in the highest possible terms! Warmest regards, Brian ScharfBrian August 10, 2017
Dear Kurt, Caroline & Dwayne: Thank you for your compassion and understanding on the day we said 'goodbye' to Jax. It was a difficult decision and the words were just to hard to say without crying. Kurt and Caroline, you were so patient and comforting. Thank you. It was important to us that we return home with Jax the same day, and in knowing we could stay with him ... provided us with such comfort. Thank you for taking such care with our little baby, and us. Warmest regards, Dawn & Steve M.Dawn & Steve M. July 07, 2017
Hello Kurt, Thank you again for being there. I would also like to thank your staff, all of whom were professional, compassionate, and most of all empathetic to me. From my phone call to you, to when I picked Max up on Saturday at 1 pm, your staff was the very best.... Much appreciated..Jose A. Montalvo M.D.
Dear Caroline, Thank you so much. I am glad I chose your service. My beloved dog, Happy, was cremated at your Pet Rest in Peace Crematory on Saturday, August 20th. It was one of the most difficult days of my life and I'm still grieving. Happy was with me for 15 years and 7 months. Ariel help me and David go through the process. She gave us as much time as we needed. Even though it was very sad and hard to say a final good-bye to Happy and see him go into the chamber, I was grateful that Ariel took him out of the basket and carried him with tender care. He looked as if he was sleeping. Witnessing gave me a relief and assurance that Happy was being cremated privately, and worked as a closure for me. I would recommend your service to anyone who needs private cremation for her/his beloved pet.Miyuki M.
To Sky & Mom, Thank you for showing so much Love and care for my dear Sheri Berry. God is using you richly to comfort punctured souls. Much Love, Annette M. AlstonAnnette M. Alston
They're spectacular in every way. Losing a pet isn't easy, but the good people at Pet Rest In Peace make the pet cremation process, a difficult thing to do no doubt, simpler. I've been there twice. Each time I went I was blown away by their compassion and professionalism. Fantastic service and fantastic business owners.Rodrigo B.
I would like to thank you for the daily affirmations that I have received in the last 30 days. Every day I look forward to read it and try to cope with our loss of our beloved Rolie Polie Olie, my little boy. He was more than a pet or companion to us, he was a member of our small family. We miss him dearly and the pain of not having him with us is unbearable. The affirmations were so helpful and comforting. We are very grateful for your service and for the professional and compassion way we were treated through this painful time by you and your staff. Rolie was like a son to us and you treated and handled it just like he was a son. Thank you so much for that, and for your love and compassion. We brought our Rolie home with us the day of the service and you were the ones who made that possible. Blessings to you, Adriana Pirez and family.Adriana Pirez and Family
Ariel, I just wanted to thank you for helping me through a very difficult time with my dog, Dixie. I actually can't believe how difficult this has been for me and continues to be, but you really helped a lot. After Dixie died last Friday at Oradell Animal Hospital, the hospital gave me a list of four places to call for having Dixie cremated. You were the fourth company I spoke with, but you were the only one of the four who actually treated me like a person and showed compassion about the loss of my pet of 11 years. It was just a business transaction to the other three. When I made the arrangements with you on Saturday, you again were very compassionate and understanding. You have no idea how much that meant to me. Thank you very, very much. I really appreciate the time you took when speaking with me.Robert Nussbaum
Caroline, Thank you so much for taking care of my family and I and of course our little Mickey yesterday. Though this has been absolutely heart breaking, I felt comfort due to your kindness and understanding. Being greeted with your hugs and kisses made us feel that you knew how we were feeling. You made saying goodbye to our little one very personal, just the way we wanted. Mickey is now home with us in his beautiful urn. I have planted the little surprise left in the card in remembrance. I thank you again. Your kindness will never be forgotten. Sincerely, Rochelle LaoRochelle Lao
Hi, Kurt. I wanted to take a minute to say thank you to you and your staff for the respect and care that was given to our little Lucky. Although this was a very hard time for me and my girlfriend you made the process as smooth as can be. Jay was very easy to talk to and made us feel so comfortable with the process. We asked him various questions and he always made sure to answer our questions in the best way possible. He was always respectful of us and Lucky. We are glad that we made the decision to say Good bye to him one last time before cremation. It allowed us to say our final good byes. We were never rushed and given the time we needed to say Good Bye to our little man. I just wanted to say thank you again for helping us through this horrible time. You and your team made this a lot easier to concentrate on what was important, remembering Lucky. Thank you, Stephanie and NikkiStephanie and Nikki
Thank you Caroline for taking such good care of my Baci today and of us - although I had cried myself out well in advance you made me know that if I needed to wail and mourn loudly you understood and would be there to comfort me. Being greeted with a hug and kiss on first meeting - wow - just so kind. Your facilitlies are IMMACULATE and beautiful and peaceful - it was the best experience I have had in being a pet parent over 30 years and having to have 9 other pets cremated in the past. I will tell all my friends how wonderful your facility is - may you stay in business a very very long time - I will not think twice when I need your services again to make the call right away. God bless you and thank you again.N/A
Dear Caroline and Kurt, Thank you one more time for the supportive and caring services you provided when we lost our beloved cat, Buster Brown. This is the second time in a year that we prevailed upon you for assistance, and in each instance you brought comfort to our grieving family. With heartfelt gratitude, Fran and Steve FinkelsteinFran and Steve Finkelstein
I recently lost my dog & while looking for a special urn for my dog's ashes we found this amazing cremation place by pure chance. Since we walked in I felt such a peaceful environment and I knew immediately that this was where I would want my dog cremated. The place was beautiful and Caroline was beyond helpful and explained us and showed us what exactly happens in a private cremation versus a regular cremation. I never knew that these kind of places exist for people who really love their pets & consider them part of their family. We ended up doing a private cremation and it was the most beautiful experience I could ever imagine. There couldn't have been a more perfect & beautiful way to say farewell to my little furry friend, who will always be in my heart. Kurt made our experience one to remember forever. He was so caring, understanding and compassionate, what a wonderful human being. Doing this private cremation gave me comfort and peace, and I felt my dog left with dignity. I highly recommend this place to anyone that loves their pet as much as I loved mine and considers them part of their family. As a matter of fact I was so impressed by this whole cremation service that I took some brochures and business cards and brought them to my Vet's office.Elizabeth
Thank you so much to you and your team for the kindness you showed River Song and my wife & I on Tuesday. It was a difficult day for me and very hard to say goodbye to my beloved fuzzy valentine. You created the perfect environment and I appreciated being able to say goodbye to River one final time. We were able to give River the send off the way that I wanted it to be and it just felt perfect. I also very much appreciate the memorial site that you provide and have been uploading photos already and lit a candle for my River. Finally, I love the 30-day messages - they are helping me immensely with my own grief, especially as this is the first true loss that I have had in my own life - Thank you again so very much.Kevin Jones
I just wanted to say thank you again for your caring and courteous service when Mama Mouser passed; you truly are a professional! I will recommend your service to my family and friends. If I can ever be of assistance to you please don't hesitate to call me. Once again, thank you.Mary Ruffel
I would like to thank all of you for the kindness and caring you & your family have shown me during this difficult time. As we all know, our pets are like our family and it's nice when you find people in this service that are as compassionate as you all have been. Again, I will definitely refer you in the future should any friends or family members require your service. Sharon Kuhl-RomeSharon Kuhl-Rome
Hello Kurt and Caroline- First and foremost, thank you so much for the compassion and care that you provided for me and for my Chloe at our saddest time of need. You ALL helped me through my unhappy situation and made the stressful experience so much less traumatic then I could have imagined. Your kindness will be forever appreciated! I can never thank you enough. KarynKaryn
Thank you so much, Pet Rest In Peace ... from feeling heartbroken when Patches passed, to using your beautiful facility and accommodating us in our time of need put us at ease. Sincerely, The Colarusso FamilyThe Colarusso Family
We just wanted to extend our most sincere gratitude for your kind and soothing services during the roughest time of our life. Your services made it as easy as we could ever imagined in this very hard and trying time.R. Rivera
Dear Caroline & Pet Rest in Peace: Thank you for taking care of my sweet baby's remains so lovingly during this difficult time. The care you've shown and the urn are both so beautiful! Love, Boaz's Mom ... StacyStacy
Just wanted you to know that all your kindness was deeply appreciated during our last days with Snowball ... Thanks for everything.Laura
Dear Kurt & Family: Joe & I wanted to express our deepest “thank you” for taking such good care of Our Oreo. Your compassionate services have really helped us with the grieving process … not to mention your web site’s Daily Affirmations. We have told everyone we know about your services and how wonderful you are! Thank you so much, Michelle & Joe WitelMichelle & Joe Witel
First, I was so glad to find such a facility in Secaucus. I found Pet Rest in Peace brochures at the shelter where I volunteer and kept one just in case. I thought it was a responsible thing for a parent of a senior do to do. And, yes, it became really helpful, especially at the time like this when your mind wasn't together... From the moment Kurt answered my first call to the email replies Kurt and Caroline sent me even a few weeks after my Juliette passed and came home in an urn, they have been so caring, respectful, understanding and professional. They made me feel very comfortable to get through one of the most difficult things I've ever had to do in my life. Caroline was so respectful and considerate that she kept asking my feelings every step of the entire procedure and I truly appreciated that. Also, the kits they gave me are very helpful. I really like to receive the daily affirmations via email. They arrive at the best time of day and the messages fit so appropriately to my emotional state. My Juliette came home in a very pretty urn with paw print. She is resting very comfortably in there now and always watching over her mommy. I am grateful that we were able to have such caring assistance for the saddest time. Thank you!Maho
Kurt, I cannot thank you enough for your kindness and support with Gulliver's passing. The books in your Pet Memory Kit are so comforting and lighting the candle you gave us joins one with others feeling the same as you. You made everything so much easier - because you really cared and it showed - again thank you so much - you are a good friend.Maureen
Just wanted to extend my sincerest "thank you" to you and Kurt for the professional, courteous and compassionate way with which you treated my wife Vicky and I while dealing with the difficulty of losing our beloved pet, Bentley. You guys were great, answered all of our questions and made us feel comfortable during this most trying time in our lives. All the best.Robert & Victoria
Dear Pet Rest In Peace: Your calm, engaging way was a great comfort to us. Thank you for all that you did for Abby and us. Love, Barbara, Stu & Samantha FaigenBarbara, Stu & Samantha Faigen
Caroline and Jose made a difficult, sad time in my life easier. My Francesca was a sweet, and loving, beautiful cat. She deserved the best for the 16 1/2 years of love and companionship she gave me. At Pet Rest In Peace, she was handled gently with care and respect. The singular cremation was done with dignity and I was able to return home with my baby's ashes the same day. It gave me solace knowing I was with Francesca every step of the way and did not have to leave her and wait weeks to bring her home again. The Staff was kind, compassionate and professional. They know how much we love our pets and treat them with the care and respect they deserve. I cannot thank Caroline and Jose enough for their kindness and compassion to me and my baby at this most difficult time.Elvira S.
“Our dog passed away during COVID 19 pandemic. Despite this, the facility still maintains professionalism and shows compassion to their customers. They allowed 2 of us going in at a time, giving us privacy to say our goodbyes. Because of Covid 19, we left the facility and came back roughly in 2-3 hours to pick up the ashes. Jose was very helpful and made us feel at ease. He walked us through every step of the process. After the private cremation process was done, Jose gave us a small complimentary candle and a book of Love & Remembrance to help with our grieving process. Aside from our experience, the facility is clean and well maintained. They have a variety of items that are available to purchase to commemorate your pet. We bought a beautiful photo cherry wood urn and two personalized clay paw prints. We are happy that we chose Pet Rest In Peace. Thank you so much for your service.”Carmen May 29, 2020
Cody, thanks again for helping me get through the most difficult time of my life when it was time to finally let go of Hiro and have him cremated. From the first time you answered the phone, meeting you and finally doing the service, you made everything very personal and completely mindful of what I was going through. It doesn’t take away the pain but it does start the healing and for that I will be forever grateful. for Hiro | 7-28-19R. Cruz August 08, 2019
Hi, My husband and I lost our dog Stewie this weekend. We brought him to you for help with his cremation on Sunday morning. My husband and I would like to thank you for helping to make that process as smooth as possible. Thank you so much for your kindness, patience and understanding during that difficult time for us. Saying goodbye is never easy but your facility was peaceful, tasteful and a very appropriate setting for us to say goodbye and not feel so bad about leaving him, We were so happy that we were able to take our boy home the same day and have him with us. You have no idea what a comfort that was to us. Stewie was a poor victim of a greedy puppy mil. He lived his whole life not wired right causing him to be fearful. The vet told us to put him down when he was three years old but we refused. We tried to make him comfortable and happy and made sure he knew that he was loved until he passed on his own. Later in life his fear agression made it impossible for him to leave our property. This is why is was so important for us to have him home right away as he had never spent any time away from his home. Thank you for making every effort to make the whole thing as bearable as possible. Your kindness is very much appreciated and won't be forgotten. Thank you again. J. InnisInnis family June 01, 2019
Dear Cody, You made the toughest … most horrible memories different. Because your kindness and helping me in the hardest ways ever - made it all different in a way I can heal easier. It was not easy for me to ask of you for the help I needed. But, if you know Jewlie - you would be so proud of yourself. Anyone that loved her could never have seen her in that condition and not been heartbroken. My gratitude will be forever in a memory - because you caught my fall in a moment so painful - and stopped what others created carelessly. I'm so thankful you knew exactly what to say and do and I know it was hard. I was about to cave in and you prevented it. You have so much to be proud of. You deserve the best. I hope life gives you the same. Sincerely, Jewlies Mom.Christy August 13, 2018
Dear Caroline, Kurt & Christian: My sincere thanks fro the way you handled my darling dog, "Bella." Your Memorial Center is spotless, cheerful and caring. You made a very sad day a lot easier to handle, and the fact I was able to have my "Bella" back home in a matter of hours made it that much easier. Again, my THANKS to you all. Pat PSPat PS October 23, 2017
Dear Kurt, Brian & Ariel: Just a note of "Thanks-Gratitude" for all of your time and genuine assistance. Your caring and kindness that you show makes this difficult time so much easier to cope. You all make the world a "better place." Once again, thank you for everything! May our Romeo rest in peace.The O'Sullivans July 11, 2017
To the entire staff at Pet Rest In Peace: We want to thank you so much for making Nadine's passing a peaceful process.

All The Best, Shuli, Robert & IaziakShuli, Robert & Iaziak
Ahh!! After doing my research of where to take DJ, I finally found a place that I found very comforting. Since this is what I do for a living, only difference is that they are people instead of animals, I was very skeptical. They made this process as easy as it could be. I recommend this place a million times. The drive is worth the peace of mind. Hope to never visit again, but if I shall, this is by far the best place ever and only place! From the initial phone call to inquire to the actual visit to the final departure. He's now home with me after an hour wait.Margaret M.
7 months ago, my kitten Sheldon passed away from illness that we'd been doing our best to work with our vet to treat. In such an unfortunate situation, it was great to have contacted such compassionate and kind people. I could not have been happier with the services we received from these lovely people even though it took so long to write this review. I still wear the necklace I got here nearly everyday and I treasure the box with the engraving on it that I got in Sheldon's memory. They even went the extra mile and engraved a plaque for a family dog who passed away over 10 years ago. Nothing could have made my experience better. Thank you, thank you, thank you!N/A
Dear Caroline: On behalf of my family, and our dear Sophie, I would like to thank you and Ariel most sincerely for the perfect ceremony and cremation last Thursday afternooon, August 4th. Not only did we find your services, advice and understanding truly compassionate, but we are also grateful, under the circumstances, that you were able to respond to our wishes so promptly, on the same day that Sophie passed away. It will not be easy living without Sophie. She had become such a vital part of our lives. I am sure, however, that she would wish us to remember our time together in happiness, not in the real sadness of recent days. Certainly, Sophie could not have asked for a more dignified and peaceful send-off. For this we are very grateful indeed. With best wishes to you and ArielD. Ogilvie
Thank you for taking great care of my "Service Dog" Noah Riordan. this time is difficult but your gesture made it a little easier and I thank you for that!Melanie Riordan
To say we were devastated is a mere understatement, our beloved Miss Elizabeth has crossed the rainbow bridge. Upon my arrival, Carolyn couldn't have been any more loving, professional, caring and warm. She made me feel like we were friends forever, which put me in a much calmer state than I expected to be. Sadly, we must all experience a loss of our 'fur babies.' My suggestion to everyone is to contact Pet RIP.Josephine Dimiceli
Dear Caroline, I want to thank you for the excellent service you provide at Pet Rest in Peace ... and for your kindness and empathy for Otto's passing. From the first time we spoke on the phone, I knew Otto would be treated with utmost dignity and respect. Losing a pet is losing a family member, and the service and professionalism shown by you and your staff have provided me with a fitting and honorable tribute to Otto's life. Please know that your compassion and dedication made the unbearable just a little bit easier to bear. Yours truly, E. Lichtenberger.E. Lichtenberger
Pet Rest In Peace Team: Thank you for setting up Bailey's tribute page and allowing me to be the Administrator. In the days after her death, I wondered about her as I traveled to and from work on the train as it passed your establishment. The tribute page has comforted me to know that she was not alone while in your care and has allowed me, my wife, and our friends to express our feelings about her as we mourn her loss. She is with us now in her lovely, personalized wooden urn. However, the tribute page is immensely helpful to cope with her loss and to celebrate her lovely and innocent life. Bailey was given to me with love by my wife on the weekend that we were engaged, and we cherished and spoiled Bailey as proud pet parents for six years. We now remember what a blessing it was to have Bailey in our lives. Again, thank you for the tribute page and the service that you completed for me and my wife. Best wishes, KieranKieran
I can not say enough about Pet Rest In Peace Memoral Center ! They were wonderful ! They were so kind and compassionate and everything was handled in a very respectable and timely manner. They were superior!Nancy T.
Dear Caroline and Kurt, Thank you both so very much for providing such an efficient, quick, and supportive service. Rudy was a beloved member of our family for almost 19 years; we are heartbroken. However, knowing his remains were treated with the utmost respect, sensitivity, and compassion, gives us comfort and will greatly assist us as we grieve his passing. I would, without hesitation, recommend you to others in the future. Thank you again, Caroline and Kurt, for your kind assistance and for taking such good care of our dear Rudy. With much gratitude and thanks!Joann Katsantonis and Family
We are grateful to Pet Rest in Peace for the sensitive handling of our beloved pet, Diezel. Both Kurt & Caroline managed our tragic situation with special care, love and kindness. Understanding the needs and feelings of pet owners seems to be their specialty as well as the excellent care given to our pet. The name plate on the urn is beautiful with room for a special memory or thought of the dog. And Caroline delivered our dog back home personally....no FedEx needed. We would recommend Pet Rest in Peace any time. And they work with Oradell Hospital here in New Jersey which allowed for immediate pickup and transport of our dog to the Memorial Center. We have used other services through Oradell but would refer anyone who wants their pet handled with care and love to Pet Rest in Peace. Thank you, Caroline and Kurt.Sue & Bob D'Agostino on behalf of Diezel
It's been 4 weeks since our beloved Rocky passed away. I can't express enough how lucky we feel to have found Pet Rest in Peace. Kurt, you are the best. From my 1st email to you, then speaking to your wife on the phone, & then the time we spent with you when we brought Rocky to be cremated was so comforting, kind, compassionate & considerate. We are still talking about the wonderful way you treated us & our "Rocky". From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.The Strazzulla family
Caroline & Kurt: Thank you so much for giving Mac the final 'send-off' that he deserved. He brought so much joy and love to my family and friends and deserved nothing more than to be shown the same love in his moment. I am forever indebted to you for the gesture, and I'm blessed to call you friends. Best wishes! Bryan p.s. I love the candle!Bryan
Hello Kurt, I just wanted to say thank you for handling Honey's cremation today. I was so happy to find the crematory near NYC, and I was so happy to find the same day cremation. I could not bear to leave Honey unattended in other people's care. I wanted to be with him till the very end. Your kindness is really appreciated. Honey is back at home where he belongs. Sincerely, Hatsuko OtsukaHatsuko Otsuka
Kurt, I just wanted to thank you again for what you did for Blackie. I am grateful there are compassionate people like you still around. You showed him more respect than the people did who knew him most of his life. Thank you.N/A

To Caroline and Kurt: Thank you for your attention to detail, compassion, and willingness to accommodate our request to witness the process of cremation for our beloved pet Xena. This was something very important for our closure. Your facility is truly a tranquil and meticulously maintained hidden jewel, and the service you provide is unique. Thanks so much, Xenas familyXena's family
Dear Caroline and Kurt - My family and I cannot thank you enough for the compassion and sensitivity with which you assisted our family as we dealt with the loss of my daughter's beloved kitty, Iris. From Saturday's conversation with me, Kurt, as you explained Pet Rest's procedures, through the conclusion of your Sunday assistance as you passed Iris's remains to us with hugs, Caroline, your services exceeded our expectations. With heartfelt thanks!Frances Finkelstein
Thank you very much to you and to Mrs. Larsen ... for the understanding and comfort you have showed us. We miss Sparky and Kooch, but looking at their urns lighten our sadness. Again, thank you very much ... Divina and FamilyDivina and Family
Dear Kurt and Caroline: Thank you both again SO much for your assistance with Skylar, most especially the complimentary cremation. You've no idea how much it is appreciated. Not only was it a financial relief to Jonathon (he is on a limited income), it was also comforting for him knowing that it was being done by people who cared, and who are professional as well. Caroline - your calm, kind presence was extremely soothing for Jonathon. He commented as much as we drove away; it was a huge help that day, and has been since. Thank you both again - you are the very best! Kind regards ...Susan RicciSusan Ricci
We just want to thank you for your compassion and help acquiring the perfect resting place for our little pal Shadow. The reason that this particular urn is special was because she used to take small red heart Christmas ordainments off our tree and hide them. Throughout the year we would find her hidden treasures in our home. When Shadow died, at first we thought a jewelry box would be a good place for her ashes because she loved jewelry. We started to look for a jewelry box on the internet, when we came upon a candy apple red heart urn with paw prints. As you know this urn was from a manufacturer in India and they did not have a distributor in the US. The crematorium where Shadow was cremated could not help us. Not wanting to give up, we searched the internet and found you and Pet Rest in Peace web site. We were so hopeful when the next day there was a voice message from you saying you might be able to help. I was very impressed when I spoke to you following day and found out that you had already contacted the manufacturer in India on our behalf. We have told all our friends and pet lovers about you and Pet Rest in Peace, how you truly understand what it is like to lose your furry pal. Kurt, we wish we could find the right words to express how much we appreciated you taking time to talk with us and help. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!Mary and Craig Splihte
Kurt: Thank you very much for the service you provided for our Sadie. Your compassion, kindness and support was very comforting for us. Leaving Sadie at your facility came with assurance that Sadie would be treated with dignity and respect. You helped make a very sad time in our life a little easier to endure. Thanks buddy ...

Hi, I just wanted to thank you and Kurt so much for everything you did for my pup Neve, myself and my mom. I am so grateful to you for every aspect of my experience with you. First for how professional, caring and quick your initial response was to us, to coming out in a snow storm within an hour's notice, to how professional and delicate you were when you picked him up and took him. And for the extra above and beyond service of a private cremation, which I truly appreciated given my financial situation. I can't tell you how much I appreciated everything you did for me. I am so sorry it took me so long to write, I have just been in a bad place with it all. He was my best friend for 12 years and it was a sudden death and shock. I wish that everyone out there would know of your business and I will be sure to spread the word about Pet Rest in Peace whenever I can. I would love to write a testimonial for you and your website, if you have any need of one. And I wish you all the luck with this new business of yours, you provide top notch, high quality, A+++++ service. Many thanks again for all you have done for me and Neve, I truly appreciate it, more than I can ever say.! Best, Bridget PalmieriBridget Palmieri
There are no words that say how I feel for the wonderful job you did when Brookelyn passed away. It was a very sad moment in my life, but you helped with your professional and caring handling of my magnificent and beautiful friend of over 15 years. I did not have to leave her to be put in a freezer until they came for her and then wonder how she would be handled. I saw you take her with the most caring and gentleness to go to her final rest. We are indebted to you forever. KathyKathy
