History of Heavenly Paws Pet Aquamation


After losing their beloved family Golden Retriever, Mitzy, the Stewart family became increasingly interested in afterlife pet care. During their research, they found the process of Aquamation and it became a calling. After much planning, Heavenly Paws served its first pet in September of 2015. Since then the community response has been tremendously supportive of the work the Stewart family has dedicated their lives to. The Stewarts hope Aquamation can be a lasting legacy, and provide comfort to the pet families of Georgia for years to come.
