Thank you for the kindness and compassion you provided as we said our good-bye to our sweet Mama beagle. We found Oak Rest Gardens to be such a peaceful, respectful place, and each member of your staff seemed to truly understand our grief. This was actually our 5th experience with Deceased Pet Care. Our sweet baby beagle passed away last year, and in previous years we've had to say good-bye. Each heart-breaking time, your services were truly comforting and completely professional.

Coping with Pet Loss

For many pet parents, losing a pet is like losing a best friend, a family member, and a trusted companion all at once. When that loss occurs, many are left with grief and other emotions that can be overwhelming, not knowing what to do or say to move forward, or even what to say to others in a similar predicament. Deceased Pet Care in Atlanta, offers a free monthly Pet Loss Support Group to help those through these emotions and the grieving process.
