Guardian knows how hard it is to say goodbye to a beloved pet and we understand that feeling of loss. We also know how important aftercare arrangements are in the healing process.

Guardian Animal Aftercare provides compassionate and dignified aftercare services for all animals — cats, dogs, birds, horses, exotics, and all other animals. We offer individual, communal and private pet cremation services. Our services include a special urn and personalized plaque at no additional charge, and complimentary pet bereavement counseling for all of our clients.

Our staff is comprised of true animal lovers who treat each and every animal who enters our facility with respect and dignity. We will make every effort to accommodate all special requests. We take our commitment to animals and their human caretakers very seriously.

Many people don’t realize it, but you do have a choice of where your pet is cremated. We work with many local veterinarians in Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and Orange counties, plus surrounding areas. Ask your veterinarian if they use Guardian Animal Aftercare. If they do, you may work directly with your veterinarian and follow their hospital protocol to get your pet to us. If your veterinarian does not use Guardian’s services currently, please contact us and we can make arrangements for your pet with your veterinarian on your behalf.
