“Dear Pat, Jill and staff at Forrest Run,

Pat, I can never thank you enough for coming to our home the day we had to say good-bye to Marshall.  By you doing that it allowed us to show Marshall the respect and dignity he deserved during one of the saddest times in our lives.  You all made it just a little easier to do…….I had heard many wonderful things about Forrest Run, but I want you all to know that you exceeded our expectations.  You showed Marshall and us such compassion and support and we are forever grateful!  Marshall’s urn turned out beautiful too!  What you all do there is very special.  You will always hold a special place in our hearts. ”

–Genna, Casey, Cooper & Berkley

“I would like to thank you for your compassion in dealing with my cats Charlie and Teddy this summer. You provide a wonderful service for dealing with pet loss. The private witness cremation has been very helpful for me in moving on from their deaths. Thank you for allowing me to talk about them and for being so patient with my many questions. I hope your business continues to grow and help others.

–Jill M.

“We at St. Paul Elder Nursing Home would like to sincerely thank you for the kind act of cremating our beloved Amber for us.  It was a most generous gift you gave her.  We had a beautiful memorial service for her and lots of tears were shed along with laughter as we remembered her for the wonderful and silly things she did.  We were blessed to have her for 15 years.  She is no longer by our side, but forever in our hearts.”

“You are such a blessing.”

–St. Paul Elder Nursing Home

“People like you, who truly understand the animal human bond and deep love we have, help make this difficult time and journey a little more bearable!!! You must be an angel from God to care for his creatures and the ones left behind to grieve when they leave us! Bosco would have loved you and given you many sloppy kisses! I miss those kisses, his body snuggled up next to me at night, and even his snoring…just so quiet without him. He made the house a home….Thank you again!”

–Blessings, Elaine


“Our Healing Heart Pet Hospice has the distinct honor of having the trust of pet parents in assisting them in care for their pet at the sacred time of end of life.  We take that trust very seriously.  When it comes to caring for this beautiful body that has passed we wouldn’t dream of entrusting anyone else at that fragile time than Pat or Jill at Forrest Run.   We see them as an extension of our care for our families.   The confidence that we feel with Forrest Run has us not only seeing them as trusted colleagues, but valued friends on this incredible journey with our families, their pets and the magic of the Human Animal Bond.  Our community is blessed to have them in it”

Kaukauna Veterinary Clinic has been using Forrest Run for years.  Our clients are concerned about what happens to their pet after they leave our clinic.  We can tell them with the utmost certainty that they are treated with respect here and at Forrest Run, whether it is a private or group cremation.  Pat and Jill treat us and our clients like family and friends.  They are caring, kind and considerate, and are always willing to help us out in any way they can.  We have no reason to look anywhere else for our cremation and funeral services.

I use Forrest Run for my own pets as well as client’s pets. I trust them completely and know that they do an excellent job. Pat and Jill are honest, compassionate pet owners themselves and treat every animal with respect and dignity. They have excellent rapport with grieving pet owners and offer many personalized, heartfelt services to bring comfort to the owner and pay tribute to the pet.

“The #1 thing about Pat and Jill and Forest Run is that I 100% TRUST them!  They are wonderful to work with; trustworthy, reliable, caring, compassionate and understanding.  They allow us to call them for special needs, or they will accommodate our client’s needs personally.  They are in a tough service profession and yet they never lose track of why they do it.  The animals and their grieving owners are their #1 priority and they treat them with the gentile care that is needed.  I would never allow another service handle my client’s needs.”

“Dear Pat, I just wanted to take a few minutes to say Thank You so very much.  We lost our Shih Tzu Zoey in June and discovered your services while spending our last minutes with Zoey at the Fox Valley Animal Referral Center.  Although we were, and still are very sad about losing her, it was so comforting to know that there are people like you to make things go just a little easier.   My daughter asked me on Monday morning if it would be possible to get Zoey’s foot print and I thought it was already too late.  But a simple phone call to FVARC to inquire and they quickly got us in touch with you.  Speaking with you on the phone was very comforting and you were so kind when I was so sad.  My husband called you two days later and asked for a favor.  He was trying so hard to help me feel better and thought to contact you to see if we could get Zoey back home any sooner.  You were gracious enough to get her ready for us and we had her back that Wednesday.  I can’t thank you enough for bringing her back home to us so quickly.  You have a beautiful facility and do a wonderful service for people like us and there are no words to express how comforting it was to know she was in such good hands.  We miss her every day and are still very sad but she is here in our home surrounded by pictures, her collar, toys and the wonderful book I found at your office, “Paw Prints in the Stars”   THANK YOU!”

–Zoey’s family

–Heather J.


“We can’t thank you enough for all your help and patience during such a hard time for us.  You were so understanding, not to mention you even brought up things we hadn’t even thought of, like getting a chance to help with the burial of our pet.  Thank you again”.
