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.

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.
