Great Lakes Pet Memorial ‘Recycle Program’ for Used Pet Items to Benefit Local Pet Rescues and Shelters

Did you know that we at Great Lakes Pet Memorial have a recycle program? This gives pet owners the opportunity to donate their pet’s gently used toys, bedding, unused food, collars, and leashes to a local pet rescue or shelter like AC PAW, H.A.N.D.D.S to the Rescue, The Cherryland Humane Society, or a shelter of your choice in memory of your pet.

Any items donated will be neatly and lovingly packaged, dedicated, and presented to your chosen pet adoption agency in the name of your pet and your family. Each package will include an “In Memory Of” card from Great Lakes Pet Memorial with your pet’s information as the donor.

The loss of a pet can be a devastating event for any family. The grief can seem overwhelming at times. Knowing that your pet’s care items will be put to good use can help bring peace to the family. Grieving pet owners can appreciate that those items will help save pets in the future. It can all be made part of a comforting tribute to their cherished pet’s memory.

Many rescue agencies are run solely on donations and volunteer dedication. Great Lakes Pet Memorial would like to give back to these agencies and help them achieve their missions in the name of your pet.

Great Lakes Pet Memorial will gladly accept gently used items like; bedding, unused food, leashes, collars, toys, pet clothing, blankets, treats, etc. at our facility and store in the Chums Corners area of Traverse City. We are open Monday through Friday.
