Caring. Compassion. A Graceful Departure

To better serve our clients and to continue providing the highest level of End of Life care, we are making two changes to Graceful Departure Pet Center. 

First, we are moving away from Alkaline Hydrolysis and will be returning to flame-based cremation. We have found a local company that matches our philosophy, standard of care, and attention to detail. We are thrilled to partner with West Coast Pet Memorial. 

Second, we will solely be a mobile practice as we will be closing our storefront and clinic. Our passion and expertise is in-home end of life care, and making these changes will ensure we can continue to assist pets and their people in a meaningful way.

These changes will go into effect on April 20, 2020. If your pet’s ashes are still in our care please contact us so we may arrange proper pickup, shipping, or hand delivery. We are grateful for your trust and thankful we can be with you in your time of need.

We understand how heart-wrenching it can be to face losing a member of the family, especially when it is a beloved pet. The bond we form can be very deep. Graceful Departure Pet Center’s aim is to make that journey the least painful and as smooth as possible for both the pet and its people. Call us to schedule an appointment.
