The loss of a pet can be a difficult experience for you and your family. Losing a pet is, for many people, as devastating as losing a very close friend or a family member. 

Some pet guardians believe that cremation simplifies the burial of their pet, and some appreciate the environmental responsibility of cremation.

The SPCA de l'Outaouais offers this service through Gateway Pet Memorial. There is no need to make an appointment, you can simply come to the shelter during our opening hours.

*Please note that we do not offer euthanasia services; you can contact your veterinary clinic for information on this subject.
