What we have enjoyed, we can never lose… all that we love deeply becomes a part of us.

Vancouver Island Pet Pre-Planning and Aftercare Services

Let us honor your pet …after the last good-bye.

Honor Your Pet Aftercare Services provides the opportunity for you to give your precious pet a dignified departure. At Honor Your Pet Aftercare Services you have the best of both worlds. You can come out and see our facility and participate in the aftercare process, while also having your veterinarian as your advocate. Arrangements can be made through your local Veterinary Clinic or through our facility located in Black Creek on Vancouver Island. We invite you to review our website and see the extensive services that we provide.

Whether you are facing the difficult decision to euthanize your companion animal or are struggling with a sudden loss through unexpected illness or accident, we know that pet loss hurts.

Both your Veterinarian and Honor Your Pet Aftercare Services understand that your companion animal was not ‘just a pet!” He or she was a member of your family. Every tear you shed is a testament to the beautiful bond that you shared. It is only natural that you feel an overwhelming sense of grief and loss.

Please know that, even if we may not have had the privilege of knowing your pet, we are animal lovers who have also felt the pain of pet loss. We extend our heart-felt sympathy to you and your family during this difficult time.

Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your pet’s passing, we believe that making the decision about what to do with your pet’s body is a final act of caring. It is our hope that the information on the following pages will help you plan the final arrangements for your pet and give you the confidence that your pet’s body will be entrusted to a professional service provider that has built their business on a foundation of honesty, compassion and integrity.

Our Cremation Services

Cremation is an increasingly popular choice and can be arranged through the individual that you have entrusted with your animal’s life, your veterinarian. The veterinarian will then contact us on your behalf. We offer returned cremations and community cremations.

Memorial Tributes

There are many ways you can honor your pet aside from having your animal returned. We offer a large selection of products to help you remember your beloved companion, from scatter dispersal boxes to memorial urns and paw prints.

Kind words from pet owners:

“My family and I would like to express our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for taking such good care of our beloved cat Skeeter. I appreciate so much that Brian came to pick her up early. It’s been quite the adjustment not having her around, but I have taken comfort in knowing that she was very well respected at your facility.”

“Professional, Professional… from A to Z, right from the time you come to pick up and drop off, your invoicing is efficient, methods of payment great, the timely fashion you respond to inquiries, the care you take… Thank You.”

“I just wanted to say THANK YOU again. Brian went above and beyond his job duties. He is a gem. (…) I will definitely recommend your company to all my friends, and mention the kindness offered me.”
