Cremation Services

The Humane Society of Kitchener Waterloo and Stratford Perth partners with Gateway Pet Memorial to offer communal and private cremation services, urns and paw prints.

Cremation Services

As pet owners ourselves, we recognize that losing a pet is an extremely difficult experience. Should you be looking for after care services such as communal or private cremation, we can assist you in making these arrangements.

No appointment is necessary. Feel free to call or come into either of our centres and speak to reception.


Paw Prints And Urns

Gateway Pet Memorial offers paw prints and a selection of urns (for an additional fee) for those choosing private cremation services. Once you arrange for private cremation, our staff will provide you with a reference number to go online to and arrange for the memorial products of your choosing.
