Founded in 1971 in West Chicago by Pat Blosser, our mission is to continually set and elevate the standards and ethics of the pet aftercare profession, provide continuing education for our Members, and to educate pet parents to the importance of seeking services from an IAOPCC Pet Cemetery/Crematory Member versus the other options available to them.
The IAOPCC represents the gold standard in both business and ethics in the aftercare industry. Being an IAOPCC Member assures your clients that they are dealing with a reputable provider offering the finest in aftercare for their pet. IAOPCC Members are expected to uphold the high standards set by the Association and are bound by the standards and practices set forth by the Association.
Accreditation benefits both the member facility and the clients it serves. Through the IAOPCC Accreditation Program, pet crematories are evaluated against a pool of more than 250 standards that represent the best practices in pet cremation care and pet crematory management.
