It's Fun To Do Good and Back the Blue Pet Rescue knows it!

BTBPR members are dedicated to rescuing abused, neglected and abandoned animals. We strive to find them forever homes and reduce euthanasia. BTBPR also assists Arizona’s retired public safety K9’s with medical needs.

 

BTBPR is comprised of board members either working in or having had prior experience working in Law Enforcement. It is this experience that brought BTBPR to life.

 

BTBPR does not discriminate regarding animal breeds or even types of animals. BTBPR has also helped owners needing long-term medical care find temporary homes for their beloved animals so they could heal, knowing their fur babies were taken care of. 

 

BTBPR is also dedicated to lowering the feral feline population (homeless and unsocialized cats) by conducting regular Trap Neuter Return (TNR) events.

 

BTBPR is dedicated to giving back to area police agency K9 handlers by assisting with their medical needs. When a K9 can no longer work, due to age, health or injury, the K9 handler is responsible for its care when the dog is retired. These costs are often astronomical and strain the personal finances of these handlers. Most of the K9’s that are retired still have a life to live, but without medical assistance will be euthanized. BTBPR feels these dogs deserve better from us as they have served their communities with dedication and honor.

It's Fun To Do Good and Mountain View Funeral Home & Cemetery knows it!

2nd Annual Pet Blessing


October 4th marks the celebration of the Feast of St. Francis Assisi; the patron saint of animals and the environment. To honor this saint and the companions great and small who support us through good and bad times, this day we will be having our 2nd Annual Pet Blessing. We will be joined by Father Pinti at 10am at Mountain View Funeral Home and Cemetery.


For the safety of guests on two and four legs, all furred/feathered/scaled companions need to be leashed or in travel crates.


About Us:

In 1951, Albert M. Coury, Sr opened the gates of Mountain View Memorial Gardens. Driven to better serve his community throughout the emotionally taxing steps of arranging and having a funeral for a loved one, Albert added a funeral home and crematory in the center of the cemetery’s serene gardens. Our founder’s dedication, integrity, and compassion continue to be upheld by his son, Dan, and grandson, Greg, as they care for and grow the legacy.


Over time, the Coury family has been privileged to serve an expanding community. In 2012, the San Tan Mountain View Funeral Home and Advanced Planning Center was established in the rapidly growing Queen Creek. The brand new building has a welcoming home-like feel, as well as a chapel, reception area, and plenty of parking. In 2014, we celebrated the re-opening of Superstition Cremation and Funeral Services. The building has been renovated to be calm and dignified, much like the Superstition Mountains after which it is named. Located on Old West Highway, this location features a modest chapel and a crematory. At any of our locations, you will be greeted by a compassionate member of our staff. Our Cemetery and Advanced Planning Specialists and Licensed Funeral Directors/Cremationists are trained to provide exceptional service. Soon we will also be able to offer the services of our newest member, Sam, a trained therapy dog.


We believe a sense of community should be held in high regard and try to support ours whenever possible. The Coury Family and staff are supporters of Kiwanis, Sunshine Acres Children’s Home, and Sharing Down Syndrome, to name a few.


The Coury family wishes to better serve others for many generations to come
