Our Facility

Our operation has been designed with you in mind; the last thing you want to worry about at this difficulty time is the type of facility your pet will be going to. We have taken great care in designing our crematoria similarly to human crematoria because we want to guarantee (reassure you) that your pet will receive the highest standards of care within this profession.

We understand our ethical obligations to you, your pet and the environment. Our facility is maintained and run in an environmentally-friendly way, and is inspected as required by the Ministry of the Environment.

Professional, Caring & Compassionate

Metro Pet Crematory opened in June of 2006 in Burnside, Dartmouth and was established with the pet owner in mind.  Our goal was, and is currently to bring the same level of services expected in the human aftercare industry to pet owners. 


We provide the most thoughtful and professional cremation services available to pet owners in the Halifax, Dartmouth, Bedford, Sackville and surrounding area.  In 2011 we made the move to build a new facility and are now located in Upper Sackville. 

Our company Incorporated in 2012.  All services provided by our company are performed onsite. Our facility is a caring and modern environment that allows pet owners a place for a meaningful goodbye.
