Cherish Pet Cremation
Shirley Dale, owner
2284 London Bridge Rd.
Virginia Beach, Va 23456


The idea for Cherish Pet Cremation was begun after listening to our friends discuss their painful experiences during and after the process of losing their beloved pet. They felt overwhelmed, confused, and uncertain of how to go about providing a “dignified end for their best friend”. They also painfully remembered the lack of compassion and understanding that should have been shown to them during this time of heartache and grief.

As a pet owner myself, I have had the unfortunate experience of having to deal with the pain and sorrow of losing my precious companions. After much thought and reflection, I began the journey of building a business aimed at meeting the emotional needs of pet owners here in the Tidewater, Virginia area. My goal is to provide the dignity, respect, and compassionate services that each pet and their owner needs and deserves.

Cherish Pet Cremation Services, Incorporated, opened in January of 2003. It is the mission of this company to provide a dignified, caring service to your pet as well as comfort and support to you throughout the painful process of letting go. Compassion in taking care of the living during this time is paramount. I strongly believe in giving you the time to grieve and work through the sorrow you are feeling as your pet is crossing over to the Rainbow Bridge. I promise to treat your pet as a member of my family and to grant the dignity and respect that your pet deserves.
