The International Association Of Pet Cemeteries & Crematories (IAOPCC) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of pet cemeteries and crematories around the world.  With Members in more than 15 countries, we are the Recognized Leader in the Pet Aftercare Profession!

 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, to 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.

As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the IAOPCC operates on a budget that is supported by dues, donations, and other contributions from its members.  All efforts are completely voluntary.  If you wish to contribute towards our educational efforts, please click on the Donate button found on this website.  Your donations are tax-deductible and assist with providing on-going education to the pet aftercare profession as well as pet parents world-wide.

As a professional in the Pet Aftercare Industry, you are invited to join the IAOPCC.  Membership not only acts as an endorsement for your business, it tells your clients that you care.  For sponsors and suppliers, membership provides you inside access to reach our members.  If you have not yet opened a pet cemetery and/or pet crematory, you may join IAOPCC as an Affiliate Member allowing you to learn all aspects of the pet aftercare profession prior to establishing your business.   

Participating in the IAOPCC as a member gives you the “winning edge” needed to become successful!  Click here to learn more about becoming a member of the IAOPCC.
