Our goal is to treat your pet the way we would treat any family member we serve – with respect and dignity – and with the level of care that families have come to expect from Oakey’s.

A place where you know your pet will be privately cremated, where you can have a memorial service, check out books about pet loss and a place where you can send us your pet’s obituary and we’ll post it here on our website.
“Oakey's Pet Funeral Home has helped me through the passing
of three of my beloved fur babies. Although the passings occurred under different circumstances over the last 6 years, the staff has always provided a level of service I can't even begin to describe. Most recently, I had made prearrangement for my childhood Shih Tzu, Gizmo. Even though I now live out of state and Gizmo remained in the care of my parents, that did not matter. When his time unexpectedly came, there was no hesitation by the staff of Oakey's. They drove to my mother's home in Franklin County at 11:00 at night, retrieved my buddy, and took great care of him. I've never once been pressured into purchasing an urn or any other items unless I was ready. We love our pets and they are part of our families; Oakey's makes them part of their family when their times come. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for all you do."
With love and deepest gratitude,
