Dear Mr. Henley,
Thank you again for your thoughts. I am afraid that our policy here is that deceased animals are sent to our partnering animal memorial park unless the pet owner requests otherwise. Good luck in your efforts.

Dear Ms. XXXXXX,
It is very clear through our conversations that you treat the animals under your care with the utmost regard and consideration, even after their passing, and I hope the community realizes what a wonderful institution they have in the San Diego Humane Society.
I notice from your last email that you often have pet owners with specific wishes concerning their pet’s remains. Perhaps were you to inform them of my snake and me, and the service we provide, they might be interested. It would be like a little piece of their beloved companion lived on in my python, and people could find that comforting. They might also be interested in paying just to witness the spectacle, as it can be quite an arresting and graphic display of adaptive physiology.
What do you think? More options available to the bereaved can’t be a bad thing…
