Faithful Friends Pet Crematory, Inc. was founded in 2014 by Nanette (Nan) Johnston and her husband William (Ted) Johnston. The idea for this service was born of their devotion to their pets and an awareness of the need for pet owners to know and trust the caretakers of their beloved pets' remains once they have crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.

 

Having grown up on a dairy farm in the New Berlin  area, Nan has always found her love of animals to be a strong part of her daily life. She and Ted have brought many animals into their household, with several of their pets being rescues. Lady Rose, their rescued boxer, comes to work daily with them where shes plays with Thomas, Ashes and Linus, three rescued cats, who actually reside at the Faithful Friends building. Lady Rose holds a Therapy Dog Certificate as well as her Canine Good Citizen Diploma and loves to greet people at the front door. Thirteen year old Mystery, a cancer survivor dog and retired therapy dog visits the facility several days a week.

 

After many years of serving the Morris community and surrounding townships with the expertise in the day-to-day operation of the Johnston Funeral Home, and the 19+ years' experience at Hillington Crematory, their focus is now on helping families deal with the loss of their beloved pets, whether they be companion animals, such as cats and dogs, or exotic pets and other small animals.

 

About Us

 

Our newly-opened pet crematory is located in the beautiful Butternut Valley of Otsego County on NYS Highway 23, just 1/2 mile east of the Village of Morris, New York. The facility houses a state-of-the-art cremation retort built for the Johnstons by B&L Cremation Systems, Inc.  (a retort is the large stainless steel unit that performs the cremation).

 

Our building has been designed to meet the need of families who have lost a beloved animal companion,  offering choices in cremation services for their loyal animals as well as for exotic pets.  We have incorporated a sitting area at the entry of the building, in addition to creating our quiet room which will afford a family some private time to say goodbye to their pet. Hanging on the walls are various poems and legends that bring to light the connection of animals to their humans, one of these being a Native American legend which has been illustrated by a local artist, Alberta Hutchinson.
