Preparations Before Your Visit
If you have chosen pet cremation or burial as a way to honor your beloved companion, we have some important instructions you should follow when dropping off your pet.
Here are the steps you should follow to ensure a smooth process:
- Contact our office in advance: Before dropping off your pet, it's important to contact the Rockville or Woodbine office to schedule an appointment. We are available by phone 24/7, but staff may not be readily available after hours. We want to ensure that one of our caring staff members is ready to assist you and your pet.
- Complete our At-Need Pet form: Prior to bringing your beloved pet to our offices, we encourage you to complete the form with as much information as you can. If you have any questions or concerns, our staff will be able to address them in advance so you can make informed decisions.
- Prepare your pet: Make sure your pet is placed in a secure and dignified manner such as a pet cremation casket or wrapped in a towel or blanket. For transport, we recommend adding a waterproof layer beneath your pet such as a puppy pad or even a lawn and leaf bag.
- Say goodbye: Take as much time as you need to say goodbye to your pet. If you want to bring a favorite treat or small toy, we will do our best to honor your request to cremate that special item with your pet.
We want to provide the level of care you are most comfortable with, and these steps help make sure we understand your preferences.
Planning for the care of a beloved pet can be a difficult process while grieving. Forever Faithful Pet Cremation & Funeral Care's complimentary Pet Tribute pages provide those who are grieving a place to receive support, come to terms with their loss, say goodbye, and honor their pet's life. Being able to memorialize your pet with family and friends lets everyone share stories and memories and creates a lasting support system as everyone begins their grief journey.
