About Us



Established in 2015, Paws & Claws Aquamation and Memorials is owned and operated by Brian and Deanna Kondrath.

Brian has been in the funeral industry for over 25 years. He has a degree in Mortuary Science and is licensed by the state of California as a crematory manager, embalmer and funeral director.

Deanna has a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and has worked in the funeral industry for 10 years.

Paws & Claws Aquamation and Memorials is proud to be the first aquamation facility in all of Orange County. We would like to share our credentials so that you will feel completely comfortable with our handling of your pet during this challenging time.

We gladly welcome any questions. 

Some people view pet after care as an extension of veterinary services. But with our decades of experience in the funeral industry, we view pet aftercare as a funeral service.
