Keena is home

Thank you so much for the care you showed to our dog Keena.
You are the first that has gone beyond our expectations to show care, and class.
I will never go anywhere else again.
Thank you for understanding how she was a family member not just a pet!

Trina is home

We had to make the heart wrenching decision to put our beloved Trina down on April 16, 2021. She was a beautiful 14 year old Rottweiler and she was my husband's birthday gift all those years ago. To say she will be missed is an absolute understatement. She was my best friend and a central piece of our family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for treating our Trina with dignity and respect. She was returned to us in a beautiful cedar box with her name engraved on the top. We are deeply grateful to everyone who was involved in her cremation process.

Our beloved Jake jaKie boy ❤️

I would like to thank all of the staff at Gateway Memorial for the wonderful work they did and the caring they all gave to our loving pet and family member Jake.
I would especially want to thank Nelson who went the extra mile and was instrumental in keeping our Family up to date as to what was happening with our beloved Jake.
I picked up Jake’s remains this morning from the Lola Animal Hospital located on Lola street in Ottawa .
I was very pleased with the quality of the packaging and presentation I saw when the staff member handed me the bag which had the urn that held Jake’s remains as well as all the accessories purchased.
Although it took three weeks for Jake to return home I understand that covid 19 played a part in the time it took to finalize the work required to prepare Jake for home.
After looking at all the detail involved and the professional way that the accessories were completed, Jake’s paw print, excellent work, a part of Jake’s fur, the attention to the message to be placed on Jake’s urn, the quality of the urn, I now fully understand why it took three weeks from start to finish to complete the work involved.
Please accept our sincere gratitude for handling this very difficult situation we went through with the passing of our beloved pet and Family member Jake Jakie Laurin ❤️

Tigger our beloved loved fur baby

tThank you gateway for doing my creamation for my beloved loved fur baby Tigger Ziedins born 2002 -November 23, 2020. Tigger was with us almost 17 years I picked him up when he lost his first home in 2002 I remember when I went to get him, he so sweet and friendly my heart broke to see him in this cage at the animal centre in aurora, Ontario. It was a cold January month when we got him, he has filled our hearts so much in the years, Tigger loved his treats, also always waited for us to come home from work, Tigger always wakes us up in the mornings, sleeps with us at the foot of the bed, liked to sit on the chair on warm summer months at the front door with his human mom, We miss all his little activities during the day. He will always be loved and remembered till we meet again at the rainbow bridge my love, Your human parents and other members of the family misses you very much. Thank you gateway for doing great job.

Love from your human parents and the rest of your family members.


so beautiful

We had to say goodbye to our sweet boy Waylon after nearly 12 years together. Cremation arrangements were made through the amazing staff at Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital. We received Waylon's remains back today and when I pulled the cedar box out of the packaging, I was overcome by the beauty of the box. We had no idea his name would be engraved on the top of the box. He is on the fireplace mantle now which gives me comfort since his favorite spot on a cold day was curled up with me in front of the fireplace. Thank you Gateway staff for taking such care and making everything so personal and special.
