About Us

Our owner Austin Houston and Michael Pilling started Forsyth Co. Pet Cremations in 2021. They have worked side by side for years in the funeral industry. They understand how to help someone through a loss. With 20+ years of combined experience in the funeral industry, they felt like it was time to expand there compassion and care to those who suffer from a loss of a family pet. They are the only local pet cremation company in Forsyth County. They also serve all the surrounding counties such as, Cherokee, Dawson and North Fulton.

Being pet owners themselves, Michael and Austin understand how important your pet or fur baby is to the family. Now days animals mean so much more than what they used to. Now days we have service animals, support animals, and there are many other areas where animals are important and needed to help others. Austin and Michael wanted to open up Forsyth Co. Pet Cremations, to help the residence of Forsyth and the surrounding counties. They offer quality service at an affordable price.
