Eterneva: turn your pet’s ashes into a diamond
We have recently partnered with Eterneva, a very special company that takes 1/2 cup of your pet’s ashes and grows a diamond that you will cherish for life. We chose Eterneva because they are a small, American based company that shares our core values in bringing the highest honor to your pet. They also bring you with them on every step of your pet’s journey to becoming a diamond.

The process includes

  • Complementary consultation and attention to all the details. We work to ensure your cat is comfortable and relaxed when we arrive. They can be surrounded by their favorite people and toys, they can have any treats they like, and it can take place on a cozy bed, in their favorite garden, or even right in your arms.   
  • Travel to your home or the location of your choosing
  • All necessary medications and supplies
  • A beautiful handmade clay paw print and a lock of fur, if you like
  • A personal note to your veterinarian to let them know about your pet’s passing
  • We can also provide loving and respectful removal of your pet from the premises if cremation is elected

What our clients say:

“Letting my baby boy go was absolutely the hardest experience I’ve ever gone through, but it could not have been more beautiful or peaceful. We are eternally grateful to Dr. Lander, Calvin, Ioanna, Cheryl, and the entire Paws at Peace team. Hugo did not pass away in crisis. The sun was shining, my precious boy was in my arms, and he was surrounded by love, peace, and beauty. It was everything we could have possibly wanted for his transition into heaven. Thank you, thank you, a million times thank you, Paws at Peace. Angels on earth.”

“The staff of Paws at Peace treated my cat, my family, and I with the utmost patience and compassion throughout the whole process. My sweet kitty passed away peacefully and without fear in her favorite spot, and her last memory before falling asleep was eating her favorite treat. I could not be more thankful.”
