We all hope that we will never need these services, but any of us who have lost a pet understands that it can be one of the hardest experiences! This service can help people parents deal with their loss and provide a memorable tribute to their furry friend!
PAWS Memorial Service, a family owned and operated funeral home for beloved pets, will host an Open House on Saturday, October 10, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at its new facility at 601 Pitts Road in Richmond.
Founded by long time Fort Bend County resident Catherine Dalrymple, PAWS Memorial offers accessible, compassionate and dignified aftercare services for pets. Having formerly owned and operated a local boarding kennel offering grooming and training, Dalrymple has been involved in the pet care industy professionally for many years. Personally, she loves animals.
“Our pets are our partners and best friends. They are there for us with unconditional love and support throughout their life,” said Dalrymple, owner. “So we know they deserve to be treated with dignity and respect when it comes to end-of-life care.”
PAWS Memorial Service focuses on the pet owners by providing personal attention and service. “We built a comfortable facility and maintain a welcoming open door environment for the pet owner. Our commitment is to help one family at a time in dealing with their loss, fulfilling their wishes and preserving their memories. That personal touch is of utmost importance to us,” said Dalrymple.
PAWS Memorial provides free cremation services to working dogs in law enforcement, search and rescue, and disability assistance. Additionally, it supports several animal rescue organizations as a way to honor its clients.
“Veterinarians, their staff and all animal lovers are invited to the Open House and to walk the grounds and meet us, as well as some of the rescue organizations we support,” said Dalrymple.
“We want the community to know we are here for them.”
