Something we don’t want to think about but we need to be prepared for is the unfortunate end of life with our pets. Very few pets outlive us. When making a decision about your loved one after passing, you want all the facts and all the options. There is an option I wasn’t aware was available until my friend went through the process about two months ago. If you haven’t seen that blog/vlog visit here: A Pawdoption Story | Stephanie & Boo. Below is information about an amazing company/people that are here for you in this tragic moment of losing your best friend.
You have a few options at the end of your pet’s life. Here are the most popular:
Natures Pet Loss is an Aquamation facility. They are located in central west Florida, in Brooksville. Aquamation is an eco-friendly and safe process called hydrolysis alkaline.

I personally visited this amazing facility and the staff just oozes compassion and love for your deceased loved one. You can take tours of the whole facility. Ask any question and it will be answered quickly and efficiently. If they aren’t sure (which is rare) they will go to the ends of the earth to figure out the answer for you. They are fully transparent about the process and everything it entails.
Walking into the lobby there is a beautiful room with couches and plenty of comfortable space. They have a room that is soundproof when you close the door to have a private viewing and say goodbye to your loved one. You can take as much time as you need and no one bothers you.
I met with Joyce Moreau, the owner of Natures Pet Loss, and her dogs, Jacques and Fawn, to talk about what is most important to her and her staff; The people, the pets, and their bond. When it comes to Aquamation, Joyce doesn’t care about the monetary part of the business, she cares about the pets and their humans. Joyce wants to make sure each and every person that walks through that door is cared for in this tragic time in their life. Water and snacks are offered, because she knows that when people are going through this hardship they forget to take care of themselves. Below is a short interview with Joyce about the part of her job that is most important to her.
Thinking about these things are hard but it is always great to know that there are options. I will say that Natures Pet Loss has my business for when that sad time comes with Lily and my turtle Jack.
