The Pet Loss Center is honored to be a member of the Austin and San Antonio communities. Even though we are a new neighbor to you, The Pet Loss Center has been serving pet parent families and veterinarians in the Dallas/Fort Worth area for years, so we are not new to Texas or the pet loss profession.

Much like other markets that The Pet Loss Center services, we have found that pet parents and veterinarians throughout this city are looking to partner with a pet loss organization providing the utmost in care and full service support. An operation like The Pet Loss Center brings a robust offering to fulfill both our pet parent’s needs and wants; we are consistently present and available to professional requests from the veterinary clinics and animal hospitals.

The Pet Loss Center of Austin/San Antonio is here to do just that. The team at The Pet Loss Center are pet parents who understand the relationship with a pet. And, they are professionals, who understand what it means to partner with veterinarians and to provide seamless caring service when the death of a client occurs. This is our promise.

At The Pet Loss Center, our vision is that all animals receive dignity and respect in life and death. We support our local pet adoption efforts and any other cause helping these creatures receive the care and respect they deserve. Internally, we honor every pet that enters into our facility and care for them if they were our own.

Our mission at The Pet Loss Center is to provide world-class end-of-life services for pets and those who care for them.

After all, that is what they, and you, deserve.

We are here to help you help them in honoring their journey.

Being the person who can support and comfort these families in their time of grief is extremely rewarding.”
