About Us

Pets and Friends is family-owned and operated by Kathy Beard and her husband, Dr. Jason Beard, DVM and is located in Tyler outside the city limits, offering a peaceful setting for our pet funeral home and crematorium.

Because the Beards also own Hide-A-Way Small Animal Clinic in Lindale, they have a unique understanding of the importance of loving, dignified, and respectful care for your pets. It is an honor to now provide these special services for your pet friend’s final journey.
