Pets At Peace Crematory, Inc., a family owned and operated companion animal  crematory located in Hampshire, Illinois, was established in 2004 by Denise Hoopes, Dale Tegtman and Scott Walker.  Together we possess a wealth of experience in dealing with human loss and grieving families.  Each of us brings that same level of compassion and professionalism to not only the pet owning community but to the pets themselves.


We pride ourselves as being the leader in the pet cremation industry when it comes to the gentle handling and care of all beloved family companions that come to our facility.  They are very gently and respectfully removed from the veterinarian clinic or your home.  They are placed in carts inside the truck.  They are never thrown into the truck or on the floor in a big pile.  They are treated with the same respect, dignity and sensitivity in death by us that they received from you in life


As pet owners ourselves and several of which have lost our best friends, we know firsthand the grief, emptiness and loneliness you are feeling.  These emotions that you are experiencing are very much like the emotions felt when you lose someone close to you.  So when the day comes that you must say goodbye, please allow us to be there to provide the support and guidance you will need to get you through this difficult time.  Making the decision to provide humane after death care for your beloved family companion will give you peace of mind knowing that you truly cared for him or her in life and in death.
