McAlister-Smith Pet Loss Services


Faye, after 9 long months without our Gunner, I’m finally able to open my heart again. Now I just have to come up with a name for him. Thank you again for helping us through our painful loss. You were amazing!! ❤️💯😥
Received my girl Shannon's remains today. Kayla and your staff were wonderful through the entire process. The bamboo box is beautiful and the other items were just as I expected. Thank you so much for your kindness and understanding.
I'd love to hear some of everyone's "pet names" for your pets! I'll go first... Maggie's nicknames: Magroober, Maglett, Moogie, Moogarella, Girrrrrrrly, Smol, Mag Dog, Hundie 🐾
I've been working at McAlister-Smith part-time for 2 weeks already. What an amazing group of people. Everyone is so compassionate and caring, and I'm able to bring some comfort to grieving hearts. They also carry an amazing array of pet keepsakes you can order. My journey began with a simple photo frame I saw on Amazon five years ago. It said, "Thanks for Everything! I had a wonderful time." I cried when I saw that frame and I guess the seed was planted.
So I haven't shared with Y'all that I'm now a proud and grateful part-time employee (ambassador) of this amazing funeral home that serves both humans and pets and their families. What a wonderful, dedicated group of people who support individuals and families when they are most vulnerable. I was networking to generate awareness of my pet loss & bereavement counseling service, and walked in off the street. Two months later, I'm an official member of their team. It's an incredibly gratifying experience.
Mary went out of her way to make sure my baby Lance Dale was taken care of. The compassion and support here is just OUTSTANDING. THEY ARE THE BEST.
Do you happen to have an archive of all pets you have a record for? My pug was cremated against my wishes a couple years ago with your services and would love to have anything you may still have on file. Please and thank you. (Please private message in the event you do. I do not always receive proper notifications with replies to comments alone on here for some strange reason).
Thank You for taking care of Caw Caw😢
