I lost my beloved cat, Checkers on 10-15-14 and was devastated to say the very least – of course, i still am and i’m struggling through the grieving process (not doing too well). Checkers wasn’t just my “little man”…he was my heart, my best friend and my confidant/mentor — i was fortunate enough to be right beside him when he passed and tried my best to comfort him and i truly believe he knew i was there. After much thought and prayer, my daughter and i eventually ended up calling Walhalla Veterinary Clinic and they recommended Tall Pines Pet Services, LLC – having never been through the cremation process of a pet, i wasn’t sure what to expect – would they be gentle with him, would i receive his ashes or would there be a mix-up? Honestly, i was a nervous wreck! We received a call from the vet’s office yesterday that Checkers was ready to come back home – when we got there, we were given a bag (nice, with handles) and inside it was a beautiful wooden engraved box and a certificate (rolled up with a green ribbon) – it was beyond anything i had expected!! I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who wants a loving and lasting tribute for their pet…the price is absolutely reasonable and i have no doubt that my Checkers was treated in the best possible way! I will definitely be calling them in the near future to thank them…this Mama is very pleased and satisfied and will use them again if the need should arise ever again!
