CEMETERIES/CREMATORIES:

Please note that most veterinary clinics and many SPCAs/humane societies also offer cremation services.

Aguilar: World Fauna's Pets Forever. When your beloved pet passes away, it can often be as tragic as the passing of a family member. The years of love and companionship you have experienced with your pet can be preserved, and you do not have to part with your pet through burial or cremation. Our method involves both taxidermy and freeze-drying resulting in the most life-like preservation imaginable. In addition, our methods allow us to handle large breeds of dogs that others can't. We don't stop at cats and dogs; we handle all pets! Snakes, lizards, rabbits, turtles, hamsters, parrots, all birds... etc. With over 20 years of freeze-dry experience, and thousands of satistfied customers, you won't be disappointed.
