4 Paws Chapel &

Angels' Rest Memorial Garden

One of the hardest things to endure is when your loyal companion goes over the rainbow bridge. It is a heartbreaking time. 

The 4 Paws Chapel and Angels Rest Memorial Garden will be a place you can bring the ashes of your loved ones and put in the chapel or spread in the memorial gardens. It is our goal to have a place that will bring comfort to you when grieving. We invite you to be a part of this exciting project.

"I want you to know she is in the best place in the world. The very first night she slept with my parents in the bed right next to my mom, and ever since. Again, thank you so much for all you do, and did for my family!!!"

“WMR, thanks for the refund but as I told the girl, I'm good with you keeping it. You have so many furbabies to care for and besides Jenny is worth the little extra. I so love my little girl. Thanks for saving her and her little family and also for giving me the chance to adopt her. You have a great team! All have been so nice and also helpful. It's easy to see you care for the furkids and you enjoy what you do. AWESOME! ! For them "Thank You"!!
