Jan 20, 2023 | News

After originally opening the doors in Exeter in 2004, Valley Pet Crematorium, now renamed Valley Pet & Equine Crematorium, has relocated to Paignton and will continue to offer the same high quality of service, but with additional options for those requiring equine cremations. In addition, there are two new homely rooms of remembrance for clients wishing to spend time with their pet before the cremation takes place.

At the new state-of-the-art crematorium, located on Aspen Way, Paignton, a dignified cremation service for horses, ponies or donkeys has been introduced. This service offers an individual cremation service where equine friends can be cremated individually and all of their ashes returned in a casket of your choosing.

For for those who decide not to keep all of their equine friend’s ashes, there are alternative options in the range, including an ash keepsake for a small amount of their ashes and a range of alternative keepsakes such as their plaited mane.

However clients wish to remember their beloved pet, our friendly advisors will guide you through every step of the way. Valley will continue to cover the south-west for families who choose the crematorium for their pet’s final farewell.

General Manager, Sarah Kaczalska said “as pet owners ourselves, we understand what it’s like to lose a beloved pet, which is why we will care for your pet as we would our own. We will listen carefully and carry out your wishes for your pet’s cremation, which means that if we promise to give your pet a head tickle then we will!”

Steve Twomey, Crematoria Director is delighted to launch the new premises. “We want to continue to offer the same high level of client care by delivering our very best service for you each and every time. Our promise to you is simple. We will cherish and care for your pets as if they were our own and offer an excellent standard of care, compassion and dignity.”

Valley Pet & Equine Crematorium is part of The Pet Crematoria Family, with six dedicated pet crematoriums, each serving their local communities, veterinary practices, hospitals and animal charities in their local areas.

The Pet Crematoria Family is a brand of CVS Group plc, one of the UK’s largest integrated veterinary services providers.
