I would just like to personally thank you again for all of your help
Dear Juergen and Peaches,
I would just like to personally thank you again for all of your help and thoughtfulness when our dog “Marley” just recently passed away. It was a very traumatic and sad time for us and your kindness and expertise in dealing with these matters made the whole experience much easier to deal with. You went out of your way and beyond the call of duty to make sure that every detail was taken care of and that we were happy with the choices that we were making for our final goodbye to Marley.
You really understood how much a part of our lives Marley was and how we regarded her as a family member and not just a “pet”.
Again, I would like to express my heartfelt thank you for everything that you did for us in making this time of sadness in our lives so much easier to deal with.

My Wife Margie and I Appreciate
I have to take this time to tell you how much my wife Margie and I appreciate the patience and caring that you have shown in handling the cremation of our beloved "Katie" a feline family member for nearly twelve years.
I know in my heart that no one would have taken the time to go out of their way to accomodate my unusual work schedule, before and after your normal work hours.
As you know we had already undergone a very traumatic ordeal with our Katie being mutilated by an uncaring, sadistic veterinary assistant who apparently felt he needed a trophy after her demise.
You and Peaches showed such caring and undersatnding that it helped tremendously to ease our pain and loss.
I urge anyone reading this post to not hesitate to utilize Jurgen and Peaches services if you are looking for someone that will respect your dearly departed in their final disposition.
Not only do they supply a necessary service but they do it with your feelings in mind.
Again thank you Jurgen and Peaches.

Thank you from Joey's Greyhound Friends, Inc.
This is Brigitte Cooper,
I am the President of Joey's Greyhound Friends, Inc., here in Cape Coral. I personally would like to thank Juergen for all his exceptional care and for his kindness he has shown to the members of our group when their beloved pets crossed over.
I first met Juergen in July 2010 when one of our old foster dogs passed in his foster home during a massive grand mal seizure. Our vet office, Viscaya/Prado, recommended to call Juergen- Right away Juergen and I hit it off since we both are headstrong Germans, coming from the same region in Germany-"Upper Franconia". He came to the foster home and picked up our Rudy with the uttermost care and professional expertise.
In the spring of this year we had another emergency- One of our adopters came home from the hospital where she visited her husband in ICU, when she found her old greyhound, Crissy, in severe distress- She called us and we picked her up and drove both to the EVC (Emergency Vet Clinic on Collier Avenue) sadly, Crissy's time had come, she was paralyzed and we had to send her to the bridge. This all happened at night- Since it was too expensive to have Crissy 's body taken care off at the EVC, I called Juergen- and this man, who works day and night- met us at midnight at the Pet Crematory to take in Crissy's body.
Who else would come out after hours and help us? I do not know anybody.
This October it was time for another greyhound to get his wings- Cooper died in his Mommy's arms at a vet office on a Sunday afternoon- he was old, he was ready - but this vet office used a crematory service out of town, a service that had been cited in the past with irregularities. I would not trust them with my own dogs ashes- and also they were extremely expensive to have a private cremation.
Again Juergen came to the rescue. He met us at 3 PM at the Cape Coral Pet Crematory to receive the body. Who would interrupt his Sunday afternoon activities with his family but him?
Since the passing of greyhounds is a constant in my life, and since I am a RN, death and the handling of bodies is sadly something I am used to. I have seen with my own eyes how gentle and careful Juergen handles the pets when they passed on, I have seen his equipment and the “back room" with my own eyes and know that the bodies of our loved ones are in the best and correct care with him.
I am lucky to have a friend in him, a trusted partner when the time comes and our beloved four legged family members have to "go home".
