While the Dorothy O’Connor Pet Adoption Center is focused on improving the lives of the animals in our care and the families that they will join, we also understand that the inevitable loss of your pet can be devastating to you and your family. At the Center, we understand the importance of handling the pets who have passed on with both care and compassion.

You can be assured that your pet is treated with the respect that he or she deserves through the cremation services that are available through the Center.

Our pricing varies, dependent on your needs and your budget, and includes services with and without urns. Our services can be coordinated with your local Veterinarian or can be offered to you personally. The Dorothy O’Connor Pet Adoption Center would be proud and honored to assist you in this time of need for you and your beloved pet.

Please call us at 361-575-8573 for additional information or to arrange for services.

A final resting place is offered at Memory Meadows for animals that have been cremated. It is located next to the Dorothy Hanna O’Connor Pet Adoption Center (DOCPAC) at 135 Progress Drive in Victoria, adjacent to Victoria Regional Airport.

The option of placing secured cremains in a columbarium niche with personalized exterior engraving is available based on individual owner preference in small or large size for a reasonable fee. Military/law enforcement service animal entombment is available at no charge to the handler.

Honoring your pet by commemorating its life can create a sense of closure as well as celebrate the relationship between you and your pet. Call 361-575-8573 or visit
