Pet Marmoset Monkey with Habitat Pedestal

As an owner of many pets over the years, I can especially understand how they can become part of the family - if you could, you would never let them go or forget about them. But with freeze-dry taxidermy, many pets can be preserved forever.

Two of my pet preservation customers made statements that ring true to this day. Upon entering The Frontier Shop, one of them said "I thought by coming here I might change my mind, but looking at all these realistic mounts I now wish I would have had a hunter in my life who would have brought trophies and beautiful mounts into my home."

Another pet customer stated after viewing my work and justifying her decision: "Who deserves to have a specimen preserved more, a hunter who brieftly views and harvests an animal, sometimes in a split second, or someone who has loved and cared for an animal for its entire life?"

When you decide that preservation is the way to go, we will make an appointment for you to bring in your pet. At that time, we ask that you provide reference photos including a close-up of eye color. We also ask that you choose a pose and bring in any baskets, toys, or other items that you wish to be included in the mount. After a few weeks we will contact you to verify your pet's pose. The pet will then be freeze-dried and finished.

Amount of time to complete a pet mount depends on the size and weight of your pet. See our prices on pets for more details and weight restrictions.
