Support for members offering pet cremation...

Pet cremation and memorialization is one of the fastest growing death care markets in the United States and Canada. Many CANA members are considering or have added  various pet services to their existing businesses. In recognition of this growing demand, CANA participates in a number of initiatives to provide information and support to these members.

We collaborated with the International Association of Pet Cemeteries and Crematories (IAOPCC) several years ago to draft standards for pet crematories. The IAOPCC continues to review and update these standards annually.  In 2016, the two associations again collaborated to develop the CANA/IAOPCC Certified Pet Crematory Operator Program, using CANA’s widely accepted crematory operator certification as the foundation. This course is offered at the IAOPCC conference held in September each year.
