Pet Cloning cannot be achieved without retrieving healthy cells from your deceased pet. If your dog or cat has died within the last few hours. Please follow the steps below to preserve your pet's cells before its too late.
If your dog or cat has just passed then you must act quickly as in right now! There is a 5-day window to successfully extract good quality cells from your beloved friend before the cells begin to deteriorate.
This means that once your pet has passed the body will begin to quickly deteriorate and your chances of extracting quality cells diminish with every passing day.
Warning! Do not place your dog or cat in the Freezer!
If you do there will be zero chance of cloning your dog. You must wrap your dogs entire body with wet bathing towels and place it in the Refrigerator to keep it cool. Do this first and then contact us right away. Time is of the essence!
- Keep the deceased animal in a sanitary, cool environment at refrigerated temperatures from 35° to 45°F (2° to 5°C) until tissue samples are collected.
- DO NOT FREEZE.
- DO NOT BURY.

Step 1: Obtain three or more sterile bottles for preserving and transporting the tissue samples. Bottles may be plastic or glass approximately 10 ml or 1 oz. size. Bottle size may vary if tissue is submerged in saline solution. Each bottle needs a screw cap that can be securely tightened to prevent leakage.
Step 2: Prepare the transport media from standard 0.9% isotonic saline solution.
Step 3: Collect muscle tissue samples that are approximately 1/4 inch in diameter and at least 3/8 inch long.
Step 4: Place each muscle piece in a separate bottle and keep refrigerated until shipped. Secure the lids on the bottles firmly.
Step 5: Repeat the procedure described in Steps 3 and 4 above until at least three sets of tissue samples are collected.
Step 6: Label each vial as follows:
a. Owner name
b. Pet name
d. Date samples taken
Step 7: Place the tissue bottles in a Styrofoam box or insulated cooler with one frozen ice gel pack (NOT DRY ICE). The samples need to be kept cold but not frozen. Place the ice gel pack on the bottom of the container. Separate the bottles from the ice gel pack with a layer of corrugated cardboard or Styrofoam to prevent bottles' direct contact with the ice gel pack. The container should be capable of keeping the contents at temperatures between 35° and 45°F (2° to 5°C) for 72 hours. Check with your courier such as Federal Express or UPS for assistance and shipment times.
Step 8: Immediately ship the package by overnight courier for next day delivery to:
Raymond Page, PhD
MyFriendAgain PerPETuate, Inc.
Life Science and Bioengineering / WPI
60 Prescott Street
Worcester, MA 01605
Step 9: Please provide PERPETUATE the courier's tracking number by email (rdgil[email protected]) or telephone (808-989-2028).
Step 10: Ship at least two bottles of tissue samples. Keep one bottle in a refrigerator until your shipment arrives at the laboratory in satisfactory condition.
You must act now to preserve the cells of your dog or cat. Cloning cannot be done with just DNA, Blood, Skin, Hair, Teeth, Etc. Cloning can only be done with live tissue taken from your pet immediately after death. After your pet dies, the deterioration of your Pet's tissue will begin. After 5 days it is too late. Pet Cloning cannot be achieved. There will be no way to clone your dog or cat. You'll need to call us right away and we'll send you a biopsy kit. Contact us and we'll ship- a biopsy kit directly to your veterinarian complete with instructions for the doctor to follow. The Biopsy kit is a Styrofoam box with ice packs and vials to store your pets tissues or biopsy samples when shipping back to us. The vet will extract quality tissue and cells from your pet's body. The Vet will than place your pets biopsy samples in the container and ship it back via next day air to our storage facility. Once there we will culture the cells from the sample tissue to ensure that the cells are viable. The cells are then frozen and stored in a liquid nitrogen storage container. The cost to store your pet's cells is about $100 to $300 per year.
Contact us right now! We will give you emergency instructions on pet cloning and on how to store your pet's body while you wait for the biopsy kit. We will contact your vet with critical instructions. The kit will arrive the next day and the Doctor will perform the biopsy necessary to save precious cells form your pet. Keep in mind that you may live in another time zone and if you don’t act now we might be closed by the time you call and won’t be able to ship the kit until the day after tomorrow. This means precious time is lost! Remember, Pet Cloning cannot be done without healthy cells taken from your dog or cat.
