About the Owner

Russell Mann graduated from NAU and taught kindergarten in the Flagstaff Public Schools for several years. Russell also graduated from the Missouri Auction School, received the honorary title of Colonel, and operated a successful auction company in Northern Arizona for 12 years. He has served as a full-time forensic assistant and certified investigator for the Coconino County Office of the Medical Examiner as well. He also worked for Maricopa County Animal Control and works part-time at both local funeral homes in Flagstaff.


From his own experience losing beloved pet companions, and his wide exposure in the community, he responded to a growing need among the many animal lovers of Northern Arizona for a final care provider for companion pets.

Russell is well known in the community as a man who follows his heart unflinchingly. This is the thread that weaves his careers and interests into the caring and colorful tapestry that is his life.

"If God brings our pets back to life as we enter the Kingdom, it wouldn't surprise me. It would be just like Him"
- Joni Erickson Tada

Humility makes you approachable
Gentleness makes you touchable &
Patience makes you believable
It is only in the application of "being" that you can please God by the "doing."
