The Shugart Family Legacy --- Our devotion to people and their pets, dedication to quality, and attention to detail began in 1972 with the Shugart Family.  Known throughout the world, the Shugart Family earned an outstanding reputation within the pet aftercare industry.  Under the guidance of its founders, Doyle and Maudann Shugart, along with their three children, Keith, Kyle, and Donna, their services grew from a modest building to three locations, two pet cemeteries, and world-wide recognition as a pioneer in providing superior pet aftercare services.  

Nearly 50 years later, the Shugart family realized a lifelong dream as they completed construction of the largest full-service pet funeral home in the nation.  Because of Doyle and Maudann Shugart and their unfailing commitment, Georgia's pet parents are able to experience a level of compassionate, understanding pet aftercare services and comfort not previously known.  With individual counseling rooms, viewing and visitation rooms, beautiful chapels, and the largest selection of pet memorial products available, Georgia's pet parents have every service they desire immediately available to them.  

Committed to the legacy their parents began, Keith, Kyle, and Donna, as well as many of Doyle and Maudann's grandchildren, are actively engaged today in continuing those superior services. Pet Parents can rest assured in knowing that the Shugart Family and Pet Angel Memorial Center are committed to continuing the integrity and the compassionate care and services begun by Doyle and Maudann Shugart more than five decades ago.
