Heavenly Paws Pet Aquamation First to Offer Gentle, Eco-Friendly Pet Aftercare in Georgia

NORCROSS, Ga.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For the first time in metro Atlanta there is a gentle and
environmentally friendly way to take care of your pet after he or she
passes away thanks to Heavenly
Paws Pet Aquamation
. Until now, this natural, water-based cremation
technology has been available only at veterinary colleges and other
large institutions.

“As a pet parent and pet advocate, water cremation, or Aquamation, is
how I want my pets to make their final journey,” said Randy Stewart,
Owner and Founder of Heavenly Paws. “I wanted to bring this cleaner and
gentler method of aftercare to our community to take care of our pets
when they pass away. We and our pets are mainly water so what’s more
natural than to leave the world in water?”

“The process creates remains that are much like sand and can be returned
to the owner as a memorial,” said Dr. Alida Baroco of Town Center Animal
Clinic. “In large metropolitan areas like ours, where space is limited
and regulations may prohibit burial, water cremation is a great
aftercare choice, now that Heavenly Paws has made it available to the
general public.”

Heavenly Paws employs a patented process specifically designed for pets.
Aquamation, or alkaline hydrolysis, is an accelerated version of what
takes place in natural decomposition. A combination of gentle water
flow, low temperature, and alkalinity is used to quicken the natural
course. Similar to conventional cremation, the mineral ashes are
returned in an urn.

With water cremation, there are no toxic emissions, no contribution to
greenhouse gases, major savings on energy and a carbon footprint that is
only one-tenth of traditional cremation.

Until now, Aquamation has been used mainly by institutions including the
University of Georgia, UCLA, the Mayo Clinic, Duke University, Colorado
State University, Texas A&M, the U.S. Government to name a few. The
University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine has been operating
two Alkaline Hydrolysis systems for over ten years.
