Pet Memorial Park Services

Paws Awhile has been providing professional afterlife options to Veterinarians and Pet Owners for over 23 years. We are a family owned business conveniently located on a 23 acre wooded park-like setting adjacent to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Richfield, and roughly 16 miles from Cleveland or Akron.

This dedicated cemetery land was professionally designed by a landscape architect. The land is deed restricted and we maintain a perpetual care fund to secure the final resting place for your special friend.

In order to accommodate those who wish cremation as an alternative to burial, the cemetery maintains 2 state of the art pet crematories under strict guidelines in order to guarantee a professional and dignified handling of the animal’s remains.

Our family and staff have come to appreciate knowing many of our customers pets throughout their entire lives thus encouraging us to provide the highest quality service in both life and death. We look forward to providing the custom quality care that you, your family, and most importantly, your pet deserves.

We understand that every situation is different, that’s why Paws Awhile Pet Memorial Park offers a wide range of services to fit any budget, from the most elegant and elaborate to the simplest with dignity.

Let your Veterinarian know that you would like to make arrangements with Paws Awhile Memorial. We will pick up your special pet with dignity. If it’s private burial on our 10 acre pet cemetery, you can have peace of mind knowing that all arrangements will be handled with the utmost care.


Home pick up can also be arranged through your Veterinarian or by calling our office. The same services apply to home pick up as the clinic pick up.
