Pets at Rest have years of experience

For more than 40 years we have both worked in the film and television industry with our own and other animals. The affinity and bond we share with so many creatures is a strong and loving relationship built on trust, patience and stability. Each of our animals are a respected individual in their own right, especially the little unwanted ones who came to us in need of love, happiness and a permanent home.

A dignified farewell

Through the services of our company Pets at Rest, we decided to share our experience, understanding and compassion with the bereaved owners of faithful and loving pets.

Our personal, professional service ensures a dignified farewell to these special creatures and offers sympathetic support to their owners at a time of great sadness.
