Pet Cremations by Anderson McQueen

Our pets immediately become a part of the family, so when we lose at pet, we seek the same level and quality of care as we do for our human family members.

Without State or regulatory standards regarding pet loss services, the quality and level of care you receive from most providers is not guaranteed. 

However, at Anderson McQueen, our family offers you the same highly trained and compassionate professionals used to plan life tributes for humans. In fact, as part of the oldest and largest funeral provider in the Tampa Bay area, we are considered experts in the field of cremation. Our caring staff provides the same compassion and comfort for our pet parents as we do all of the family members, we are so privileged to serve.

Call us today at (727) 347-6636 and let us help you design the perfect tribute to your pet's unique life. We encourage you to participate in a complimentary private Family Goodbye or we can assist you in designing a memorial ceremony for your beloved pet.
