From pet “parents” to pet “widowers” would be nearly impossible without all of you
To our vet, Dr. James Watson and the staff at Homeward Bound, the transition from pet "parents" to pet "widowers" would be nearly impossible without all of you. Our beloved Yogi (funniest tabby cat ever!) and Mousie (our rescued, green eyed beautiful calico), have been in the hands of the most wonderful people and we are forever grateful for your kindness, and selfless acts to grieving pet parents.
We will use them again in a time of grief
A year ago my Amazon parrot passed too young and unexpectedly. The staff at Homeward Bound were very supportive and respected my baby. I was such a mess when I dropped her off to them, that I could hardly answer some of the questions they were asking, so my husband was answering for me. She had a band on her one leg and they were going to take it off of her before cremating her, but they couldn't unless they broke her leg and respectfully they left her band on her and let me know when I picked her up in her beautiful urn and I was very glad that they were so respectful to her and I about the band. A few weeks after bringing her home and putting her on my shelf surrounded by my angel collection, I came home and found her urn on the floor opened and was afraid to even go look at the floor and to my surprise no ashes on the floor, they had put her ashes in a bag and used a twistie tie and around the twistie tie was Java's ID band, of course the numbers were burnt off, but it was the niceness of the staff to grab her band after cremation and tie it to the little baggie inside of her urn that made me happy. I would highly recommend these guys in the loss of a family pet. I have told many friends and they have used them as well and really liked the staff there too. We will use them again in a time of grief for our beloved family pets. Thank you so much Homeward Bound staff for taking care of my baby.
Thank you so much for the respect you gave
The day I lost Missi I left her in the capable hands of her doctor, Dr. Monyek. He said you would take good care of her and return her to me. You did that…and with great class. Other places would return the pet in a plastic bag in a box—I was happily surprised to see you returned my baby to me in a beautiful gray urn. Thank you so much for the respect you gave her.
Thank you for everything you did for our family. I was not able to talk from all the crying and you guys took care of everything. Thank you for not blowing me off and answering all my questions in my time of need. You treated Pepe' like a family member not an "animal". Thank you!
You are there to make things a bit more tolerable
Thank you so much for all your compassion and for taking such good care of our dear departed pet. We have actually used your service for all of our pets that have gone to the Rainbow Bridge. When your heart hurts so badly and you can't even think straight, it is so nice to know that you are there to make things a bit more tolerable. Thank you for what you do.
Professional, understanding, and most of all, compassionate
We, the Espiritu Family, would like to say thank you so much for being professional, understanding, and most of all, compassionate of our feelings. Our loss of our beloved ‘Ruffy' was very hard for us to take. It was good to know that he was in good hands until the day we received his ashes. Once again we thank you all so much.
Can’t thank you enough
I want to thank you all for your kindness, respect, sympathy – and for taking care of 'Squirt' for me. I had him a little over 15 years, and it has been a very difficult time, especially with my husband dying in July. Your thoughtfulness has been mentioned many times by my daughter and me. Can't thank you enough.
They answered endless questions
The folks at Homeward Bound have cremated two of our beloved dogs after their passing. They were so kind and considerate. They answered endless questions, and were flexible and attentive to our unusual situation. I recommend these folks unconditionally! They are wonderful!
It is difficult to let go of a beloved pet
I have worked with Homeward Bound for almost five years. I have always been impressed in the compassion and respect they provide for our patients and clients. It is difficult to let go of a beloved pet and being able to assure owners that their loved one is being well cared for is a great comfort. I trust them to provide the level of professionalism and understanding we need in our clients' time of grief. I would use no other company.
The staff is very caring and professional
The loss of a loved companion is never easy and the ensuing grief makes it difficult to make decisions regarding the aftercare of a pet's remains. The doctors and staff at Clearview Animal Hospital, P.C. have chosen Homeward Bound as the only pet cremation service they use or recommend. Their mission statement states that "we care for your pets like they were our own" and I can attest to the truth of that statement knowing the owners on a personal basis for nearly forty years. The staff is very caring and professional and I can assure pet owners that their needs during such a difficult trial will be met with compassion and understanding.
