Our Story

Saying goodbye to a beloved pet is usually a time of great emotion. As we cherish the memories of our pet, making decisions regarding pet aftercare can be difficult and sometimes overwhelming.

Paws In Heaven was founded in 1992, by founders Henry and Karen Thompson, in order to provide an ethical and respectful choice for pet aftercare. In 2003 Sue Ann and Thomas McGoldrick purchased the business after having to say goodbye to their beloved Appollo lab who had been treated so well at Paws In Heaven.
