I am married with six children. I live in rural Caledonia, MN on a hobby farm. In the last 20 years my family has raised sheep, goats, chickens, rabbits, cows, dogs, and cats. With raising all of these animals, I know the pain of losing a beloved pet. The reason I’m passionate about having a pet cremation business is due to my own personal values of what I’d want to see for my own pet. If I were to have my beloved pet cremated, I would want to know that my pet is being placed in the hands of someone who is honest, loving, caring, and would treat my loved one with the utmost respect and dignity during that difficult time.

What to do When a Pet Passes
After a pet passes away physical changes begin immediately. To ease the process wrap your pet in a thick blanket, tarp, or plastic in a curled position, with their legs tucked in, as if sleeping. While waiting for me to arrive, if possible, place your pet in a cool location such as a fridge, freezer, or cover in ice.
Sweet Dreams Pet Cremation is committed to returning your pet and only your pet to you. A numbered metal tag will accompany your pet through the entire cremation process. This number will match the number written on your consent form for positive identification.
Yes, as the pets owner you are encouraged to choose who provides your pets cremation. The type of aftercare you want for your pet is a decision that only you can make.
It is my passion to handle each and every pet as I would want my pet handled. Please feel free to call me and I will carefully explain to you the level of care and dignity provided here at Sweet Dreams Pet Cremation.
Absolutely, many people call me ahead of time to have their questions answered and make arrangements for where I will be picking their pet up after he or she passes.
