A Dignified Afterlife Service for Companion Animals

We go to great lengths to create the option for you to provide your pet with a dignified afterlife service.

About Us

Companion Animal Cremation of North Dakota, has combined the vision of its previous owner and founder, Kelsey Curtis, which was to  provide dignified afterlife services for loved pets, with the abilities of McLean Frames to provide in-house, quality laser engraving services and memorial products so as to provide a simplified solution for the difficult decisions and needs that result from the loss of a loved pet. Delmere and Kris will continue to operate this business venture using the same biblical principles that have guided them to this point.


Our Story

Original founder, Kelsey Curtis grew up with animals and always had a love for them. She graduated from Veterinary Technician school in 2011. It was while in school that she realized there was a need for a service like this. She wanted to ensure that everyone had the option to provide their pet with a dignified afterlife service. Her pets are part of the f​amily, and she knew there were others who felt the same way.

It was in this spirit,

Companion Animal Cremation of North Dakota was born.

In 2021, Companion Animal Cremation of North Dakota was purchased by Delmere McLean.

He, along with his wife Kris, also own McLean Frames in Valley City, ND. They share more than 30 years worth of passion for creating unique and affordable personalized memorial items.

By combining the outstanding services that Kelsey had established with Companion Animal Cremation

and the personalized engraving services available at McLean Frames,

they have provided their customers with a simplified solution to the challenges that we all face when experiencing the difficulty of losing a loved pet.

Companion Animal Cremation of North Dakota considers it an honor, and a privilege to provide these services to you in the difficult decisions surrounding your pet's afterlife care.

                                         If you have questions on planning for your pet’s afterlife care needs,  feel free to reach out to us for assistance.

We believe that our business is as much a ministry as it is a business. We believe that pets are God’s gifts to us and to honor these gifts is a form of thanking and ultimately bringing Glory to Him.
