Plaster casts of your pet's nose are available. Full 3d nose casts are only available for deceased pets however, depending on the temperament of your pet, we can sometimes offer a more shallow 'nose print' of a living pet.

Home visits/Vet visits/Dog crematorium visits
There are times when your dog may be unable to cope with traveling, or perhaps that dreadful time has come to say goodbye to such a dear family member and you need us to come to you. Although in general we don't offer a mobile service, we are willing to travel to your location under these circumstances if we are available. For external work, we always work in pairs for safety and efficiency, which involves closing our workshop for part or all of the day depending on the distance from our studio. For this reason, we do charge a callout fee to cover our time away from our business, travel costs and time, any parking, toll or congestion charges, and so forth. Please enquire for details. We offer flexible payment terms for people who may struggle to meet the full cost at the time of bereavement - further details available in our Terms and Conditions and further information about death casting for pets is available here.
In life and in death (depending on the species and what you are casting), it is possible to cast other types of pets such as cats, guinea pigs, rabbits, rats, horses, reptiles and fish. Please ask for further details and we will always do our best to help you, whatever the circumstances. As these situations are so varied, we can only quote for these items after a short discussion with you to answer a few basic questions about your pet and situation.
Zoo/Wildlife Park Animals
In 1998, André Masters began an incredible personal art project called The Endangered Species Collection - casting wild and exotic animals both living and dead - to act as tactile teaching aids for blind and partially sighted children. The collection has grown very much since those early years, and appeals to a sighted as well as blind audience. We have one of the most varied and beautiful collections of animal casts in the world - including such rare pieces as paw casts from Sumatran Tigers, Asiatic Lions, Clouded Leopards, Snow Leopards and Elephants. We have worked with Woburn Safari Park, Chessington World of Adventures, The WWF and Maidstone Museum to create these stunning pieces. The project is entirely self-funded through the production of fine art casts of these incredible animals which we sell to the public. If you are interested in sponsoring the collection, please click the donate button below. If you have an animal we may be able to cast for the collection (either upon death or when it is due routine veterinary work) click here to contact us with details. If you are involved in a school, college or group for blind or partially sighted people and would like to arrange to see the collection and hear how the casts were produced, please contact us for more information. Or if you would be interested in supporting this incredible project by purchasing an incredible work of art from the Endangered Species Collection, please follow this link to our fine art sister company 'Masters and Munn' where you can read all about the collection, sculpture options and finishes.
