“Our family would like to thank you for all your help during our time of loss. We were very impressed with how everything was handled — from your quick response the night of J’s passing — quick and with great respect in removing him from our home, to the processing of all the paperwork and details and to how wonderful he looked at the final private viewing for our family. It meant a lot that we could all be together to see him one final time. Thank you again for everything.”
— The S. Family

Grief Support for Pets and Pet Loss
Pets Are Welcome at Your Family Service
Pet owners recognize that pets mourn the loss of a loved one as much as any family member. The Jones family understands this and welcomes your pet to any end-of-life service. Often, sharing your grief helps both human and animal companions and aids both mourners on the road to recovery.
To arrange for your pet or the pet of a loved one to attend and participate in funeral services, contact one of the Jones family members for arrangements.
For those experiencing the loss of a pet, we offer the wisdom and experience of the pet loss library.
To offer support to those who have lost a pet, visit our pet memorial paws.
For those who have lost a pet and seek a funeral provider, we recommend the services of Hinsdale Animal Cemetery.
For the past 80 years, Hinsdale Animal Cemetery has offered the most beautiful burial grounds for the interment of pets in Illinois. They work closely with area veterinarians and service providers to offer euthanasia in your home and transportation of your pet to their facility. Options include removal, cremation, and burial services for pets, including equine companions.
After all, your pets are family too.
