Losing a family member is tough and we strive to make it a comforting experience. 

I would recommend this company to anyone who is facing the loss of a beloved pet. Their level of compassion, kindness and all around care is superior.  I have worked with pets for 25 years and have never seen such an amazing service with people who truly care about the pet and the people!!  Thank you so much Russ !!!

Thank you Russ and Companions Forever for your kind words and fast service. I have my beloved Wiz back home with me the same day. Highly recommended. 

– Fay R.

Wonderful service. I would highly recommend to anyone seeking cremation services for their animals. They met us right away and had a very fast turn around. I will be using them again in the future.  Thank you!

Thanks so much to Russ and the team at Companions Forever Pet Cremation Service. Max unexpectedly had to be put down after an injury today and Russ was so helpful throughout the process. I can't thank them enough! He was so caring, so glad I found  them! We even got to take Max home the same day. Thank you so much!!

Beautiful facility. Compassionate owners. Top notch care for your pet even after its end of life. I would definitely recommend meeting these people and learning about how they cremate your pet with the respect and love your pet deserves.

Russ & Marc gave me a tour of their facility last week. I was really impressed by how clean and neat it was. They take great pride in what they do and take great care of the families during this extremely difficult time in their lives. I would highly recommend their services.

Beautiful facility and very personal service. They took very good care of our dog and made the process easier. I would highly recommend Companions Forever.

If your pet is a member of the family and you care about receiving only your pet's cremated remains back, you bring them to a private cremation facility like Companions Forever. The business model is one pet at a time, mirroring the human model in the funeral industry. The facility is modern, updated and nicer than many funeral homes I've been in. Staff, especially Russ, are sensitive to the needs of the grieving pet owners. There is no rush on saying goodbye in their tastefully decorated, private room. There are no trash or plastic bags to hold your pet in, there are comfortable and dignified blankets, wicker baskets and industry standard cots. This is not a facility for disposal, it's a facility for final disposition. If you are coming from out-of-town and want to return home the same day with your pet's remains, the turnaround time is a mere few hours. Highly recommend this business, they do right by treating your pet with dignity and respect, even after they are gone.

Very caring and speedy service. My pets arrived back in a nice container. Very impressed.

Words can not express the experience you provided. Although our journey starts now we are appreciative of the privacy you provided us with Buddy. A special paw print, clipping and our favorite photo. We will never have him back but we will remember this forever. again ty....

I've been meaning to do a shout ever since we lost our sweet Tessa. My daughter and I were heart broken and they couldn't have been nicer or more understanding. They gave us time to cry and say our goodbyes in privacy...as long as we needed. Thank you for making this impossible situation somewhat bearable.

– Andrea S.

I want to thank Russ for taking care of my sweet Toby...my heart is at ease because of your loving companion.

– Jill V.

Very respectful people, never felt rushed, they were very considerate and kind.

When our dog (daughter) Dahlila passed away, I am so thankful I choose Companions Forever in Waite Park. They made a painful day more manageable. They treated my pet(daughter) as if she was their own and even returned her ashes in a beautiful, carved wooden urn, along with flowers to plant and a picture with paw print and swatch of hair. I would recommend them to anyone. Please add to your site...I am truly thankful I chose you. Thank you once again.

I had the pleasure of working with Marc to cremate our beloved cat, Fat-Fats. Marc made the experience so calming and professional. He treated my cat like family and also us like family. They have a very nice place with a comfort room where he placed Fat-Fats in a basket so we could say our final goodbyes. We received her ashes in less than 24 hours with a memory bag--even on a weekend. I literally COULD NOT say THANK YOU enough!!!

– Manda W.

They did a great job with my molly. they are very caring people. i am glad i found them before I needed then. they did wonderful. Thank you Marc for all your help.

– Jessica S.

My best buddy passed away unexpectedly last Thursday after having surgery. I was devastated, being in such a painful place i was really not able to think clearly about what to do for his after care and just said yes when asked if i wanted to use the vet's cremation service, by Monday i was thinking more clearly and called the vet's to ask about getting him home only to find out that he hadn't even been picked up yet and it would be sometime during the week before he would be picked up and wouldn't be returned until sometime the next week. I was just sick to hear this then i remember seeing something on Fb about Companions Forever Pet Cremation Services i called and talked to Russ explaining my situation and was so relieved when he said they could come pick up my best friend and have him back home the same evening! They went above and beyond my expectations with their compassionate and respectful care of my beautiful fur baby. I have been telling everyone about them and how they really took a huge amount of stress off my mind. I can't thank them enough and will use them again when my last 12 year old fur baby's time comes.

Saying goodbye to a beloved pet is never easy. Overcome with grief, it was such a comforting feeling to have Shadow cared for by Companions Forever. All the details were handled efficiently and as I had asked. I received his cremains the following day in a lovely wooden box along with a paw print, hair clipping & picture. Had I gone with the pet hospital/crematorium recommended by the vet I would have waited a week and gotten his remains in a “lovely” cardboard box or purple bag. The last decision I made for Shadow was the right one. Thanks for caring staff at Companions Forever Pet Cremation Service.

– Daniel J.

I am so thankful for the amazing, compassionate, and prompt assistance I received from Companions Forever Pet Cremation Service. Our cat Jake was 17 and in decline. We hoped he would pass at home and I made arrangements in advance for Jake. We did have Jake pass away at home and had everything taken care of within 4 hours of our call to Companions. Thank you for the kind and compassionate service.

I am so thankful for the incredible service at Companions Forever Pet Cremation Service. I had to make the incredibly hard decision to put my cocker spaniel, Hogan, down as he was suffering from cancer. I was able to coordinate and arrange pick up of Hogan’s body that very same day after my vet assisted him over the Rainbow Bridge. I live closer to the twin cities, but Russ was able to meet me so that I didn’t have to keep Hogan’s body in a freezer at the vet. It gives me a lot of comfort knowing Hogan was individually cremated and treated with such care. I received his ashes immediately along with a special paw print and lock of his fur. They also provided a special coloring book for my 6yo so that she too can grieve Hogan’s passing. Thank you so much for allowing for a more comforting experience during such a difficult time when losing a pet.

I would recommend these guys to anyone . I lost my puppy so suddenly and tragically. They made the process so easy and less stressful. I love how they treat their customers and how they care for your animal. They knew my dog was a family member and treated him no differently then I would. Would most definitely use their service again! Marc & Russ are amazing at what they do! Thank you again for helping my wife and I through a very difficult time.
