Ask for us by name!

Experience the Life Tails difference.

This short video provides a brief description of who we are and why we're unique.  We hope you'll choose Life Tails as it would be our privilege to care for your precious pet.

What you need to know about pet cremation

we serve all veterinary clinics - just ask for life tails.

Several clinics partner with us exclusively, but others do not.  Simply let your veterinarian know you'd like to use Life Tails for your pet.  

We pick up your pet the same day.

Other providers pick up only once or twice per week from your veterinarian's office.  We also offer house calls.  

We Provide dignified containers.

Other providers use a cheap plastic bag. We believe your pet deserves better.  Our containers protect your pet during transportation and offer a dignified means to say goodbye.

Our cremations are private.

Not all providers do this.  

We are the most experienced in our industry.

We've owned Betzler Funeral Home in Kalamazoo since 1975.  We were also the first in our area in 1997 to offer professional pet cremation.  End of life care is our profession.  We use professional crematory equipment with certified operators.  

You have a choice

Cremation providers vary greatly in service, value, and experience.  What level of care to you expect for your pet?  


Thank you so much for the care you took to make it personal and special for us. It’s truly a comfort at a time when little else helps.

This whole experience was painful, but Life Tails and their staff made it easier, and showed our beautiful 11 year old pup the respect that any human would get.
