Essex County NJ Pet Owners Share their Experience with Abbey Glen's Pet Cemetery and Staff


Pet Cemetery Near Nutley, Essex County NJ

So often we find that those coming to Abbey Glen have been referred by family and friends – this is so important to us. It tells us that we are able to make a positive difference for families facing difficult times after the loss of a pet. At Abbey Glen, the trust we have earned with our clients – and then again with their friends or relatives – is never taken for granted.

Pet owners Marianne and William Bird of Nutley, NJ came to Abbey Glen at the recommendation of family. Marianne's sister shared her positive Abbey Glen experience after the couple's beloved toy poodle, Celtie, passed on. Now, Marianne's sister's cat, Miss Cali Puff, and Celtie are resting side by side near a beautiful sweeping cherry blossom tree on Abbey Glen Memorial grounds, which is a short drive from Essex County.

Helping Families Through The Pet Grieving Process

When Marianne came to Abbey Glen, she worked with burial arrangement specialist Carol. "Carol is a woman who exudes inner peace and beauty. She shows such warmth and understanding for the grieving family along with deep respect for their loving pet." said Marianne. "She truly treats you as a parent who didn’t just lose a pet, but their child. And she does everything with such compassion" she said. Marianne was appreciative of the time that Carol took to explain the entire process in detail, while never pushing for haste decisions.   "The viewing was so beautiful. Carol gave us a generous amount of time to say our good-byes to our Celtic Creme." remembered Marianne.

One of Marianne's most treasured memories is the PawPal® she and her husband received. "There was a framed paw print sitting on the stand on the left side of our Celtie and Carol quickly informed us that it was Celtie's front paw print. This immediately brought tears to our eyes ... but oh, what a lasting memory". We are thankful that we can make such a difference for our clients and appreciate when they in turn let others know about our very special team delivering compassionate care.
