First funeral home for pets to open in the Beaches


This Saturday, Pets at Peace will open its storefront location. The funeral home is the first of its kind in Toronto, offering bereaved pet owners the chance to host memorial services, cremations, or burials for their deceased pets.

Helen Hobbs, president of Pets at Peace Pet Loss and Memorial Services and a licensed funeral director, has run her business online for the past seven years. She said she decided to open a storefront in response to customer requests to meet in person and view products firsthand.

Pets at Peace boasts 24/7 on-call service and grief resources to help owners deal with their loss.

Prices for cremation start at $225 for small (up to 20 lbs). More information is available on their website.

Sound absolutely crazy? Probably. If you don't have a pet.
