We live about an hour away and was nervous we wouldn’t make it on time. We walked in three minutes before closing and was met with open arms! The staff was amazing! My daughter has had a rough few nights and she walked out feeling so much better! Thank you all so much for being so caring! No doubt in my mind keela was in the best hands the few days she wasn’t home!

I just wanted to add something more about Rae. She was 13 years and 3 months old when she passed away and I accidentally left that out on my prior comment. Thanks again to the Pines for taking such great care of her and I’m so glad that you are local which makes the whole process easier.

Our best dog friend Rae passed away 8/21/23. The Pines Pet Cemetery picked her up the next day at the vet to cremate her and she was returned to the vet less than two days later. Their compassion, sympathy, and promptness was awesome. They told me that they would treat her with the upmost respect and that they would take care of our baby and they did. We appreciate all that they did for her and we are glad that she is home forever with us now to get the dignity and respect that she deserves. We will forever love and miss her. I would highly recommend the Pines. They make a painful decision less painful as they do everything for you and your pet.

Our precious dog Bailee passed away March 3, 2023 at home with us after her battle with bone cancer. She was10 years old.Our love for her is endless. She loved all of our 12 grandchildren as if they were her own. She meant the world to our family, and our hearts are crushed that she's gone. We worked with Heather beginning 5 months before Baillee passed. She was so compassionate and understanding with us arranging Bailee's funeral. We chose a burial with a viewing. My husband made Bailee a beautiful pink casket. We bought a pale pink blanket and a pink teddy bear for to be buried with. As we arrived for the viewing, we were unsure what to expect. We went in the room and saw Bailee looked so pretty. They swaddled her in the blanket with her arm around the teddy bear. She looked so comfortable and peaceful. We placed white roses in with her for extra love. We were permitted to spend 30 minutes with her before they escorted us to the grave site where a prayer was read. We were permitted to lay a bouquet of summer flowers on top of her casket as they lowered her. The Pines employess were amazing the entire journey, and took such good care of our angel Bailee. My heart is at peace knowing that Bailee was well taken care of.

Would like to give a big shout out to the Pines Cemetery and Cremation Center located in Lebanon, Ohio for their care and assistance in the last 5 days. They took care of Nemo when he passed away last Thursday and handled all of the details, flawlessly. They treated me with the utmost courtesy and dignity. They took care of Nemo and treated him as though he was he was their own dog. I can not thank them enough for that! Their actions exceeded my expectations. It was very much appreciated. Thanks so much for everything you did for me and my best friend Nemo!

My beloved greyhound Woowoo was cared for on April. 29, 2022 by Shannon and staff. They were beyond caring and made the experience tolerable. There are no words to express my thanks for making something so difficult as painless as possible! Thanks to Connie and Shannon for your kindness.

Shannon and staff at the Pines are a special group of people. Our experience at the Pines this time was with Tonya. Bruce and I can't express in words what your genuine kindness meant to us when we had to let go of our Chase. It wasn't just your compassion to us but the way you respected our boy touched our hearts and helped us to deal with his passing. Taking the time making his foot print, to clip hair from the softest part of him, to brush him, and the way you wrapped him in a blanket was above and beyond what we expected. All you did has been a gift to us. Thank you.

This place is not only beautiful like a botanical garden, they are so caring, kind sweet and patient. They think of everything to help you cope with your family companion loss. And they alway send you a follow up card! It’s a nice drive to get there! We couldn’t have been more thankful for this service!

This message is for Connie. She was so sweet when Iost my cat Izzy. She sat with me outside on a Saturday morning just talking, supporting me and helped me pick out a beautiful urn for my Izzy. I am still grieving but Connie was so sweet, she also gave me a lovely book that I will cherish forever. I also received a card from her in the mail and I just want Connie to know how much her caring means to me. Thank you so much for being a beautiful soul. Stacy Spence

The Pines Pet Cemetery is a beautiful place to remember your loved one. I cannot give enough praise to Heather for the effort, caring and compassion she has given us during this time. She has been a huge positive during this traumatic time. This organization is truly professional and the process is easier than when dealing with the loss of a human member of the family. Go visit and take a tour of the grounds, you will not find a more beautiful place. We have two bischons laid to rest there and we know they will always be cared for. If more people were as caring as Heather and the staff, it would be a better world. Thanks Heather, we will never forget your caring for us.

As I sit this evening missing our little angel dog Sookie, I feel the need to say thank you to Shannon Wood and the staff at Pines Pet Cemetery. When we arrived on Saturday morning we had no idea where to take our Sookie. When Shannon Wood saw us she immediately stopped what she was doing and came to our assistance. She tried to point me in the right direction but could see I was hurting and needed help. Her patience and understanding was very comforting in our time of need. She checked our Sookie in and took the time to show us the compassion and care we needed. She even took the time to say hello to our two surviving dogs. I can't say enough for Shannon Wood and her staff, I thank them from the bottom of my heart. I can truly say if you trust Pines Pet Cemetery you you will not be disappointed, they are truly a blessing in a time of need. Donald Smith

With the loss of our beloved daschund Buddy, my wife and I wondered if such a peaceful and beautiful place existed for him to rest. After much prayer and research we were blessed to find Pines Pet Cemetery. It's hard to describe such an enchanting serene place, but this cemetery truly is. Heather McGuire's compassion, dedication, and devotion is truly commended. Finding someone so caring and with so much heart during such a difficult time makes saying goodbye just a little easier. If someone is going through losing their pet and does not know where to turn they most definitely should consider Pines Pet Cemetery.

I brought in my English mastiff and they were so sweet and caring. I never knew places like this existed. Thank you so much Heather McGuire! If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t know about places like this. I highly recommend it if you want to keep your fur baby with you! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience for such a rough situation! ❤️❤️ Thank you so much!

Tonya and the entire team were so gentle, compassionate, and patient during this most difficult time. Pet Pines Cemetery is a beautiful place for our fur-baby's respite. We sincerely appreciated every kindness shown to our family. I recommend them whole heartedly.
