Pet Passages® Opens in Lafayette

Pet Passages® is pleased to announce the opening of their newest facility located right here in the heart of Acadiana. This brand-new state-of-the-art facility is the first of its kind in our area and ready to provide full service final care for the pets of Acadiana as well as a full line of customizable memorial products for their families.

“In my 10 years of providing pet cremation services one thing has always been apparent and that is  when it comes to pet loss and the grief that comes with it, ‘one size fits all’ just doesn’t cut it” according to Catherine Lemoine, Owner of Pet Passages - Lafayette, LA.  “Everyone grieves in their own unique way and should have the options and support in place to do so.  When you lose a person, people understand and are quick to show compassion. The same is not always true when it comes to pet loss and for many the grief is just as intense as when losing a person close to them. With the standards of care set by the Pet Passages® I will finally be able to provide the personal experience each family needs to help say goodbye to their best friend.”

Catherine has spent the last 25 years working within the companion animal industry.  The last 10 of which she has spent helping hundreds of local pet owners navigate some of the toughest moments of pet ownership. She is mindful of the special bond that owners share with their companion animals, and how that bond is unique to each person. It is because of this she has built an excellent reputation for providing compassionate care.

 Pet Passages - Lafayette will offer the most dignified and technologically advanced end of life  services available locally.  They will be available 24/7 by phone to schedule service. With their online pet identification system and pet racking software pet owners will always know where their pet is while in our care; as well as have access to their pet’s digital paw and nose prints. They will offer true private cremation and an extensive line of customizable memorial options for grieving families.  Other services they will provide include professional and timely pick up from the home or veterinarian’s office and your pet’s cremated remains ready for return within 72 hours. 

“Most people agree that pets are considered family members and therefore deserving of the same respect and dignity that would be shown for a human during the final care process. This is what we promise to provide for each family that uses our service.  From the transportation to our facility to the care and preparation for the cremation process and until your pet is returned to you, they will be handled with the utmost dignity and compassion the same we would expect for our own family members.”

 “To me, there is no greater responsibility than honoring and preserving the story and memories of a family’s beloved pet,” replied Mike Harris, founder and president of Pet Passages® “We care for your pet companion the same way we would treat any other member of your family. Pet Passages® is fully committed to helping families say goodbye to their pet in a loving and dignified manner”. Catherine shares in our belief that pets truly are part of your family. I am happy and extremely confident she will carry out my mission in Acadiana.
