The Pet Loss Center in Dallas-Fort Worth is the joining together of two premier pet loss facilities in the city, All Paws Go To Heaven and Platinum Pet Memorial Services. Both of these caring operations have been a part of the community for years and come together to combine efforts to increase their service offerings throughout the metro area.
Pet parents and veterinarians throughout the city have seen a need for years to partner with a pet loss organization that is full service. The Pet Loss Center brings a robust offering to fulfill both the pet parent’s needs and wants; we are also consistently present and available to the professional requests from the veterinary clinics and animal hospitals.
The Pet Loss Center of DFW IS that operation. The team at The Pet Loss Center is composed of 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 that seamless caring service that they need when the death of a client occurs.
At The Pet Loss Center, our vision is that all animals will receive dignity and respect in life and death. We all support our local pet adoption efforts and any other cause that relates to these creatures receiving the care and respect they deserve. Internally, we strive to make sure that every pet that enters into our facility is cared for as 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.

I feel honored helping families through the difficult transition of losing a loved one.”
While he is one of the quieter team members on the team, not a day goes by that those in the office can’t help but search for Stanley to grab a quick pat on the head and a quick nuzzle on his nose. His job description is broad, yet pretty simple. He eats, and does what cats do, but is always there to offer a quick meow of approval and love, or to let a family give a pat on the back. Simple, yet deep!
