“When our little fur baby unexpectedly died at home after 12 years of incredible companionship we were dumbfounded. We didn’t know what to do. I called our veterinarian and was told we could drop off his body and pick up his ashes in 3 weeks. We had spent every day with our little man since we picked him up at 8 weeks old, we couldn’t imagine leaving him like that to be disposed of. We found Part of the Family online and when I called, in a pathetic mess of tears, was greeted with warm understanding. We made arrangements to bring him in and were greeted with a dignified treatment that is usually reserved for humans (he was human to us). The staff fro Part of the Family that escorted us were kind and understanding. After such an unexpected loss of our wee dog it was an incredibly compassionate and dignified end for our boy. It gave us closure to be with him to the very end and although we would have paid much more for this, found it only nominally more costly than the “send him out and get his ashes back in 3 weeks” option offered by our vet. His ashes were back with us within 48 hours and our last memory was leaving his body at a beautiful farm to be cared for. Thank you Part of the Family for making our goodbye fitting for what we owed our Shakespeare after 12 years of unconditional love.”
