< Back to The Sunnyfields Family


Hi my name is Paula and I have been lucky enough to contribute to the growth of Sunnyfields which offers support, care and understanding of the losses suffered by owners.

Our pets are not as some say “just pets”, they are part of our family, and it is so very hard to say goodbye.

When my dog (Faith) was put to sleep some twenty years ago there was no cremation service offered to me, and being a single parent I could not take him with me and bury him in my garden, and so very reluctantly I had to leave him at the vets with all the other animals. I was bereft, in fact I felt as though I had somehow let him down after all those years together.

From that day I decided that I would try to find a way to help other owners get their pets back home with them again so they did not have to suffer the same experience I had.

Luckily enough in 1998 I was given the opportunity to help create the very business I was hoping to – and I am very proud that Sunnyfields has helped so many families in a some small way to ease their loss by providing an element of closure in a caring and dignified manner, so they can have their loved one home with them.

On a personal level I have trained as a counsellor for three years and last year I specifically took a course in Bereavement Counselling purely so I could have more ways of helping people come to terms with their loss. So if ever you feel overwhelmed, or just need someone to talk to then please feel free to call me on one of the numbers on our website.

I am always here to help in the best way I can whether it's a friendly chat or a shoulder to cry on, and although I don’t like having to meet people under such sad circumstances I'll do my best to help you as much as I possibly can.
