Randy and Ellen - Randy 50A note from Ellen and Randy:

Thank you for taking time to learn more about our family and friends who work together to care for your babies. We have cared for turtles, tortoises, snakes, rats, hamsters, sugar gliders, Parrots, parakeets, chickens, cats, dogs, small farm animals, small  pigs, and even a young white tiger, as well as other breeds. We have provided private cremation for thousands of pets for two decades. Before Randy and I, Rose and Ren (Randy’s Mom and Dad) were leading the way in Pet Cremations opening Pet-A-Care in 1969, and providing the city with the first pet funeral home shortly thereafter (it was located on Sequin Street in Algiers. Rose is still helping at Agee’s today.  She comes by almost everyday to help and give advice and visit her grand dogs and grand cats and grand chickens (affectionately called “The Girls”), Randy and I are strong in our faith and do not take for granted the task of caring for God’s gifts. We love our pets long after we have to say good-bye and we know you do too. That’s why we say that “Love lasts longer than life” because we know it does – we feel it.
