Skip Wyland has thirty years of experience working with grieving families and friends through his work as a funeral director in Minnesota and Arizona and as a sales representative to funeral homes in Minnesota and Wisconsin. He has been licensed in the State of Minnesota as a funeral director for almost 30 years.

We founded Pet’s Remembered as an open door policy pet death care provider and memorial center offering on-site cremation services for companion pets of all kinds serving the Minneapolis/St Paul and the seven county area.

We, at Pets Remembered, understand that the death of a pet can be powerfully overwhelming.

During this difficult time, you can find comfort in knowing that we are a family owned pet lover business and we promise that we will always handle your pet in a dignified and caring manner. You can be assured that your pet will receive the highest quality care.

The loss of a pet is an emotional time in our life. When a pet dies, there is a tremendous amount of pain and emptiness that we experience. It’s important to find comfort in knowing that your sorrow and pain is natural, and that there is compassion for your loss.

We can help guide you and your family through the various services and options that are available to you.

Carol Noren’s background includes twenty two years as a pastor, in addition to work as a hospice chaplain, working extensively with families as they journey through dying and death.

Our pets are part of our family and we grieve deeply when they die.

For some older adults, and others who live alone with their pet, a pet may be their best friend.

The death of a pet is often a child’s first experience with death. Children rely on adults to see how to openly express their feelings. An adult’s response during this time can determine whether a child’s first exposure to death will be a positive or negative part of personal development.
Regardless of our age, when our pet dies, it is important to say good-bye, embrace memories of our pet, and find ways to remember our pet. At Pets Remembered, we want to assist you during this significant time.
