Pets that will be remembered in pet urns in Alberta

“No heaven will not ever Heaven be. Unless my cats are there to welcome me.” – Anonymous

Our literary heritage is enriched with with countless pet quotes from all manner of devoted animal lovers hailing from all walks of life proving without a doubt what we, here at WhiskerTorium , have always known to be a life truth; pet love is unequivocal and universal.

There’s nothing more profound than the unconditional love our pets provide.

Intuitively sensing, in our darker moments, when their presence is most needed and companionably celebrating with us our joys, our animals support and sustain us, delight and disarm us, asking for nothing in return but our affection and their favourite food.

“With him, I am all-powerful. He is loyalty itself. He has taught me the meaning of devotion. With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace. …His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things. He has promised to wait for me… whenever… wherever – in case I need him. And I expect I will – as I always have. He is just my dog.” – Gene Hill

No wonder when it is our beloved animal’s time to leave this world, we feel inspired to cherish their memory, to honour them in a heartfelt and meaningful way. Pet cremation has become an empowering choice for especially devoted owners necessitating suitable pet urns for dogs, cat urns as well, designed to appropriately pay tribute to their life long loyalty and love.

At WhiskerTorium, we understand this need only too well from our own poignant personal experience, which is why we are proud to excel in offering beautiful and inventive urns for pets that are actually original works of art created by some of the finest artisans in the country.

We know that our enlightened pet owners are committed to truly commemorating the life of their loved one in a very special, extremely personal way which is why we have collaborated with these specific, empathetic artists, animal lovers themselves, who will ensure your pet’s cremains will be treated with extraordinary care and respect.

Their unique and amazing masterpieces not only celebrate the legacy of your treasured furred or feathered friend as an animal cremation resting place, but they are designed to enhance your home as well so your pet’s presence always remains nearby.

Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.” – Roger Caras

Doesn’t your devoted canine companion deserve so much more than a standard dog urn?

“A pet is never truly forgotten until it is no longer remembered.” – Lacie Petitto

We understand your loss.

Choose to remember them with love.



Their Lives

“Having and caring for these beautiful souls that we call pets brings joy to our lives. They are trusting, loving creatures and many of us could not imagine our lives without them in it. They become part of our family. Sadly, their lives are shorter than ours and we grieve for them when they pass.

I created my business, WhiskerTorium, to change the way we honour our adored animal companions, replacing the typical, mass produced dog urns, cat urns with a fabulous, personalized work of art to truly celebrate their lives and remember them with joy.

Each and every one of these unique artifacts are created by our talented artists and I am dedicated to supporting them in their noble craft. I feel very strongly about what I am doing, very thankful to be a part of the comfort and inspiration these beautiful WhiskerToriums bring to our pet owners.

This is what drives me to keep pursuing my dream. Our pets rely on us, so, for the love of all pets, I will continue to donate a portion of WhiskerTorium’s proceeds towards helping animals in need.”Debra Couwenberg – WhiskerTorium founder and president.
