Valley Pet Crematorium
Located in the Teign Valley, on the outskirts of the sleepy Dartmoor village of Christow, Valley Pet Crematorium was established in 2004 by pet owners, for pet owners.
At Valley, we understand that the range of emotions you are likely to be feeling at this difficult time are testimony to the special bond between you and your pet and how losing a pet is like losing a close friend.
Today, the strong principles of Valley's founders still underpins our philosophy of:
- Offering a personal, caring and supportive service
- Treating all pets with the same dignity and respect in death that they deserved in life
- Cremating only pet animals
- Guaranteeing that individual cremations are always individual
- Encouraging pet owners to visit, meet with us and view our crematorium
- Being the pet crematorium of choice for pet owners in the South West
Visitors are welcome and we are more than happy for owners to bring their pets to us (by prior arrangement).
Our Mission Statement
To provide bereaved pet owners with the best and widest options in coping with the death of their pets and with their own sense of loss
If it should be
If it should be I grow frail and weak,
And pain should wake me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done,
For this last battle can’t be won.
You will be sad, I understand,
Don’t let your grief then stay your hand,
For this day more than all the rest
Your love and friendship stand the test.
We’ve had so many happy years,
What is to come will hold no fears,
You’ll not want me to suffer, so,
When the time comes, please let me go,
I know in time you too will see,
It is kindness you do to me,
Although my tail it’s last has waved,
From pain and suffering I’ve been saved,
Do not grieve that it should be you,
Who has to decide this thing to do,
We’ve been so close, we two, these years,
Don’t let your heart hold any tears.
