Our devotion to people and their pets, dedication to quality, and attention to detail began in 1972 with the Shugart Family.  Over the years, Deceased Pet Care earned an outstanding reputation within the pet aftercare industry.  Under the guidance of its founders, Doyle and Maudann Shugart, along with their three children, Keith, Kyle, and Donna, Deceased Pet Care Funeral Homes & Crematories grew to three locations, including two pet cemeteries. In August of 2010, Doyle and the Shugart family realized a lifelong dream as they completed construction of the largest full service pet funeral home in the nation.  Because of their unfailing commitment, pet parents have a level of service and comfort not experienced anywhere else in the world.  With individual counseling rooms, viewing rooms, separate chapels, and the largest selection of pet memorial products available, local pet parents now have every service they desire immediately available to them.
