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.

“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.”

They Deserve The Best

Our Artisan Masters

Our WhiskerTorium artists have been exclusively selected, not just because they are the masters of their craft that they are, but because they are avid animal lovers, themselves, as well.

You can feel confident entrusting them with the creation of your cherished pet’s final resting place because they understand and empathize with your feelings and will make certain that the artwork they produce especially for you is a respectful and sensitive tribute to the memory of your treasured pet.

For this very reason, our colourful WhiskerToriums make thoughtful, innovative and unusual gifts you can feel proud to give as an expression of sympathy and love for a grieving friend or family member. This caring homage to your pet is also an object of beauty in your home.

“If there is a heaven, it’s certain our animals are to be there. Their lives become so interwoven with our own, it would take more than an archangel to detangle them.”

– Pam Brown
