This is embarassing, but so many people in the US are in this same boat right now. I am a real estate appraiser & have been working very little the past year. I have not picked up Romeo's ashes up yet due to finances. Does anyone know of any organization that offers assistance with such things? I want to bring my baby's ashes home. It's $105 plus about $20 for an urn.
Thanks, Kevin (Romeo's Dad)

Kevin, I know of no such thing, but have you asked your vet if they know of such assistance in your area? They would be your best source for information. Maybe the crematorium could work out payments for you?
As an aside, Kevin, I notice in your profile, it says you are an actor. Do you do both appaisals and acting in California?

Where do you live and who is your veterinarian?

I remember that Loudpurring had posted a reply for someone with places that offer financial assistance for taking care of sick cats. I can't find her post right now, but I am thinking one of those places might be able to help. I agree that your vet might be able to help. Or even check with the place doing the cremation to see if you can work out payment arrangements with them. I wish you the best Louise

Kevin, I don't know of any financial assistance either but you may try http://www.aplb.org Its The Association for Pet Loss and Bereavement Or perhaps http://www.aahanet.org The American Animal Hospital Association They may know of an 'angel' out there somewhere who can help you financially or they have a few avenues for you to explore. I would send it myself but am shoe stringing it myself at this time. Good luck and Romeo will be home soon, don't worry Jennifer Yngwie's mama

Dear Kevin, I am so sorry for your loss of your beloved kitty. I know the pain of grief just like everyone here does and I'm sure that financial problems only magnify that pain. Sadly I do not know of any organization or place that helps with burial or cremation expenses but one thing that struck me as a good thing is that you were able to have your baby cremated without having to pay for it up front. Where I live you must leave a check to pay for it with the vet or the crematorium won't even pick up the pets body. Hopefully they will work out some payment plan with you even if that means they keep his ashes till the bill is paid. I know that would hurt but he is safe at Rainbow Bridge and eventually you would get his ashes home with you. May you find peace and healing in every aspect of your life. Love and peace, AurichWolf Kathy
