"Our sincere passion is to provide loving pet parents with compassionate, caring services meeting their individual needs. Whether its burial or private cremation services, you and your family can rest assured that your pet will be handled with the utmost dignity, care, and compassion."
Owned and operated by the Shugart Family for more than 48 years, Deceased Pet Care Funeral Home & Crematories is dedicated to serving the needs of pet parents and their beloved pets.
Started by Doyle and Maudann Shugart in 1972, Deceased Pet Care began its operation with a modest crematory and a huge desire to serve the pet community. As an avid pet owner, Doyle Shugart worked more than 50 years as a licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer in the State of Georgia, establishing Deceased Pet Care as Georgia’s FIRST and ONLY FULL SERVICE FUNERAL HOME FOR PETS. It is this devotion to pets, dedication to quality, and attention to detail that has earned Deceased Pet Care an outstanding reputation within the pet aftercare industry.
As the past President of the International Association of Pet Cemeteries & Crematories (IAOPCC), and Ethics Committee Chairman, Doyle Shugart worked hard to improve the standards by which all Pet Cemeteries & Crematories operate across the country and worldwide. He is credited with developing and implementing the first certified Pet Crematory Operator Training Program for the IAOPCC in the United States and abroad.
Under the guidance of Doyle Shugart, along with his wife and three children, Keith, Kyle, and Donna, Deceased Pet Care Funeral Homes & Crematories has grown to three locations, including two pet cemeteries. In August of 2010, Doyle and his family realized a lifelong dream as they completed construction of the largest full service pet funeral home in the nation. The completion of Doyle and Maudann's 40 year dream has brought area pet parent's a level of service and comfort not experienced anywhere else in the world. With individual counseling rooms, viewing rooms, separate chapels, and the largest selection of pet memorial products available, local pet parents now have every service they desire immediately available to them. Why not choose the best for your family member?
