Saying Goodbye

Our highly trained Certified Pet Funeral Directors understand how important it is to properly say goodbye to every member of your family. We encourage you to have a private family goodbye or hold a memorial ceremony in honor of your pet. Additionally, our staff is available to help your family create the perfect tribute to reflect your pet's unique life.  These comforting events offer you and your family the opportunity to share stories about your beloved pet and say your final goodbyes. We invite you to bring all of your pet family members to the gathering or ceremony so they can say their goodbyes as well. Finally, we offer you the opportunity to memorialize your cherished friend by expressing your love and telling their story through words and pictures on our Pet Tales® stories page. 


A companion pet can bring immeasurable love, joy and happiness to their family as they are often considered to be a member of the family. When a beloved pet dies, the loss of that adored friend can be devastating. During this time of loss, pet owners seek a very high level of care for their pet and many pet owners seek the same level of care for their pet as they do for their human family members.

Unfortunatley for decades and even still to this day, there is a significant lack of Federal & State regulation and/or standard in place to guide and oversee the operations of pet funeral and pet cremation providers. With this lack of oversight the potential for unethical practices can and do occur. Service levels and operational practices vary greatly from pet cremation provider to pet cremation provider with quality not assured. Not only is this extremely concerning but it is very challenging for pet owners to find reputable pet loss providers that will care for their deceased pet with the respect and dignity their companion pet deserves.

Pet Passages® is the leading authority within the pet loss profession and not only have we met this challenge, we are committed to our profession with our main goal being to constantly raise the bar and be the standard bearer of quality for pet loss professionals nationwide.
