Our beloved Basset Hound Dakota passed away after a wonderful 14 years with us. Andrea was absolutely wonderful in helping us through a very difficult time. She is very professional and compassionate, and she is punctual with our appointments. Our fur baby passed away on Saturday night, and Andrea came in at 11 PM to meet us. Her facility is warm, clean and well-kept like a family home. Andrea gave us all the possible options (urn, paw prints, photos, etc.) for cremation, and the price is reasonable. We highly recommend Andrea and Friends Forever to anyone who is going through this difficult time.

We so do appreciate the love and compassion that Andrea has showed us over the years. First in 2020 with Dory and last month with our Lulu. They take the time to make certain you are comfortable with the process and you can ask any questions. Thank GOD for people like them during these difficult times!

We lost our beloved Wrigley after 14 years of pure joy with our family. Andrea was professional, informative and most importantly, truly compassionate. Walked us through the process and kept all of her promises. Would highly recommend their service.

Andrea was compassionate and caring, when I lost my Chloe. Everything was done with care and in a timely manner. I would recommend her 150%. I feel comfort having my fur baby home again.

Losing a loved one is not easy, but having friends forever do everything for you was amazing. They were nice, caring, and fair priced. They never dropped the ball once from start to finish and I would definitely recommend them if you had a tragedy with your little one.

I lost my fur baby boy Clyde the Yorkie suddenly on December 10th. People asked me when finding out he was privately cremated “how do you know if your getting HIM back and not another?” I told them I have faith! When I received his ashes on Xmas Eve, from fifth avenue vet, I was more than satisfied and assured that my fur baby boy is home for the holidays! He is in a beautiful blue velvet rainbow bridge bag that was enclosed in a beautiful wooden box! I can tell by the way he was returned he was handled with love and care! You guys at friends forever are truly amazing! Especially in dealing with the lost of my fur baby! From the bottom of my and my family heart, we thank you! My only regret is that in my extreme grief I forgot to asked for a hair clipping! Once again, Thank you!!!

Highly recommend this place when facing the loss of a loving pet. Andrea was extremely helpful and kind. She listened and comforted us with such an easy process during these difficult times. Thank you Andrea for helping our family get through such a tough time.

Last Friday I had to have my 11 year old dog put to sleep. You couldn’t ask for a better place to deal with this. They were so warm hearted. I would recommended anyone to this place. I couldn’t thank them enough.

My dear Ginny fell ill suddenly. Medicine did not help her. I did not want her to go through painful procedures and decided to put her to sleep. It was a huge loss to me. I could not just leave her body to the vet and picked up her ashes a week later. I brought her home, cleaned her, then put her in a nice box I decorated for her, along with her favorite blanket. The next day I picked some yellow chrysanthemum flowers from my garden and put them next to Ginny. We then send her to Friends Forever Pet crematory. Andrea was so nice. She offered to keep the flowers with Ginny. On the day of service, Andrea put the flowers next to Ginny’s mouth, and the letter I wrote to Ginny under one of Ginny’s legs, just the way I wanted it to be. We stayed with Ginny for a short time before the flowers and the letter accopanied Ginny for her final journey on the earth. That is a huge relief to me, since I believe that my dog, who is in the free spirit world, is able to understand the words I wrote to her now. Thank you, Andrea, for all you have done for us. You offered the best service we want, with an acceptable price.

We are so grateful for Andrea and the services provided at Friends Forever. I cannot say enough good things about Andrea and the way she runs her business. She is professional, flexible, compassionate and timely. Her facility is beautiful, warm and extremely well kept. Every detail from start to finish was smooth and comforting. I’d highly recommend her services to anyone. Review their website prior to. You can opt for special keep sake items such as fur clippings neatly placed in a mini bottle. Andrea, from the bottom of our hearts we thank you. We felt at peace knowing Lo was in your care. It was a pleasure and if we could, we’d leave 100 stars! Thank you-Sabrina & Matthew.

This place is amazing we lost are sweet Zoey very sudden and didn’t want to wait to have her at peace. Andrea came to get her very early in the morning and had her ashes ready by the afternoon. She was so kind when we were going through one of the worst pains we’ve every experience. She made sure are sweet princess was well taken care of. We will never be able to express are gratitude to her. Thank you so much for everything you did for us.

Their services here will not be forgotten by my family. Our little white chihuahua Rose had passed away and we didn’t know how to handle it but at least we can have her here with us in someway thanks to them. The box she’s kept in is beautiful and the memories we shared with Rose will stay with us.
Andrea was so helpful with the entire process. She was patient with us, (especially me, I was a mess), and walked us through everything. She gave me as much time as I needed to say goodbye to our ferret. His box came out so beautiful but the Rainbow Bridge poem made me cry my face off again. I would recommend this place to anyone. The entire experience made me feel better knowing Bear was in good hands. Andrea went above and beyond and I can’t thank her enough.

One of the hardest things I’ve had to face was loosing my dog the way I did
Friends forever made this process easier by the way they cared! Andrea kept us informed with everything
It was a weight lifted off knowing what good hands my beloved chrissy was in
Unfortunately chrissys life was cut short
Andrea and staff did everything to make this process easier on my family and I appreciate it so much
They care they keep you informed they will do anything to make this process easier
I respect and love them for that
None knows how hard this has been and if it wasn’t for friends Forever I don’t know if I would of made I through
From the first phone call to them I felt the compassion the understanding and the love
You guys are truly heaven sent
Thabk you for being amazing

After the unexpected death of our puppy at our house, we didn’t know what to do. We wanted an imprint of Archie’s paw and a cremation. After the vet bills we had a limit of what we could spend. Other places wanted to charge us an arm and leg for the minimum, and expensive additional charges for anything extra, or they had a 3-5 day wait to have your loved ones remains given back to you.
Andrea was kind, honest, transparent and made the experience as normal as it could have been. We were able to take our pup in the matter of hours, and get him back the next day. We are so thankful for making this process smooth and straight forward.

I recently had to have a furry family member put to sleep. He had been diagnosed with a disease that we were managing quite well, but things suddenly took a turn overnight. I called my vet in the morning with the hopes of having him seen so he could pass without enduring anymore discomfort , but like many offices post COVID, they were booked to the max and unable to see him . I reached out to Andrea, and within 10 minutes she called me back with a Vet that was willing to meet me at Friends Forever and gently end my pets suffering. Having to call a stranger at such an emotional moment was stressful to say the least, but Andrea brought me peace. She is kind, caring, compassionate and beyond helpful. Her facility is beautiful, and she walks you through the process with total transparency. I highly recommend Friends Forever.

My sons and I recently suffered the unexpected, tragic loss of our beloved cat Ruth.I was given the number of Friends Forever through Ruth’s foster family. Although it was a Sunday night, my phone call was answered, my information taken and within a couple hours, Andrea arrived at our home to pick up Ruth. She treated us and Ruth with respect and care. Andrea and the staff at Friends Forever were wonderful. Everything was handled beautifully. Thank you to all.

My experience with Andrea at Friends Forever was incredible. I lost my leopard gecko from an infection quite suddenly, and was nervous about the cremation process. I could not have been more impressed with the transparency and quickness of this crematory. Everything was explained to me of how the process would work, and I got back exactly what I wanted in a matter of a day/day and a half. I have other pets as well, and when the time comes, I’ll use Friends Forever again. They are so kind and communicative with you. It’s exactly what you want during the difficult time of losing your pet.

3yrs ago. It was a snowy winter at the end of December, our beloved 14 yrs old cat Cookie passed away… It was the saddest day in my life as our first pet loss. We wanted to cremate him but we didn’t know where we should bring him. Then, we met Andrea. She cared about our feelings and she respectfully took care of our Cookie. ..We were very satisfied with her services, Then 3 yrs later we lost another beloved our special cat, Conan. He was 19 yrs old….This time we didn’t panic. Because I knew where I needed to call. It’s Friends Forever’s Andrea. She did the same as the last time professionally cremated and took care of Conan. Now we know that both Cookie and Conan were reunited together in heaven…Rest in Peace. Thank you very much Andrea. They both love you from heaven.
