Business Relocates, Has Ribbon Cutting

WARNER ROBINS, GA- The Robins Regional Chamber recently hosted a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Pet Plantation Funeral Home & Crematory.

Paul & Pamela Boyer opened Pet Plantation Funeral Home in 2003 by leasing a property on Leverette Road in Warner Robins.  In 2011 they purchased the property at 125 Osigian Blvd. and transformed the building into a full service funeral home and crematory for pets.

“I’ve been a funeral director for 30 years,” said Paul.  “We have been very busy these days and it is a pleasure to serve the Robins Region community.”

The Boyers have been longtime supporters of the Chamber and Paul once held the title as Ambassador Chairman for one of the Chamber’s largest committees- the Ambassadors.  He is also a currently still a member of the committee.

“Our motto is we treat your pets with the care and respect they deserve,” said Paul Boyer.

How 20 Pounds Changed My Life - In an Instant!

How 20 Pounds Changed My Life - In an Instant!

This weekend was a typically busy one. House cleaning, events, kids’ birthday parties, a new dog…  Wait, a new dog! That’s not typical, nor was it very planned.  That is so not my style!

With some time to kill while the kids were at a birthday party, my husband suggested we stroll through PetSmart. After appropriately bantering about the birds and rodents, we ended up at the adoption area. We loved on the kittens and then made our way to the dogs where the biggest pair of brown eyes looked up at me and said “Mommy, take me home!”

Now I am usually a sap when it comes to kittens and puppies but I generally can walk away. But this time was different. So to make a long story short, we came home with Joie, a 4-month-old black lab mix with the sweetest disposition and, of course, the sweetest pair of eyes around!
