Losing a pet can be devastating. For years these wonderful creatures have become such a part of your family, that their passing can feel like losing a family member. Grieving that loss can also be difficult. If you find yourself looking for a way to honor the memory of your family pet, you may be considering pet taxidermy or pet preservation.
How does pet preservation work?
Our pet preservation process involves freeze-drying your pet by applying extremely low temperatures in a vacuum for a long period of time to remove the moisture from the animal’s body tissue. Freeze-drying takes a significant amount of time —3-6 months for most pets, and up to a year for larger animals—but, when done right, it will keep your pet in their natural-looking state, leaving them beautiful to look at and easy to preserve for years and years.
Through pet freeze-drying, you’re able to recreate their liveliness and spirit in a way that honors their memory and consoles your grief. Our talented professionals cherish the opportunity to do right by you and your pet and promise only exceptional results when the preservation process is finished.
