Paw Print Impressions

peartree-kit

Saying good bye to a beloved animal can be a sad, stressful time for families. To help provide a cherished keepsake, the WCVM Veterinary Medical Centre (VMC) is working with Peartree Impressions to arrange for one clay paw imprint of a family's deceased pet.

Peartree Impressions is a Calgary-based ceramic studio that specializes in providing unique ceramic paw print impressions to commemorate the lives of pets.

Here's an overview of the process: 

  • The VMC clinical team will use one of Peartree's all-natural clay impression kits to take a paw print of the deceased pet. The VMC provides one complimentary paw imprint impression (after euthanasia) to the animal's family. 
  • Once ready, the pet's owners have the option to send the clay impressions to Peartree Impressions for personalized options that suit each family's taste and budget.
  • Please view the Peartree Impressions' website for more details about personalized options and fees. 

If you have questions, please contact Andrea Gibson (andrea.gibson@usask.ca or 306-966-8795). 

Additional option

For families who wish to decorate their pet’s paw print impressions themselves, the WCVM Veterinary Medical Centre has arranged with T&T Tree Pottery Supply Ltd., a Saskatoon-based company, to provide VMC clients with a basic baking or glazing service.

When you are ready, you can take your pet’s paw print impression to T&T Tree Pottery’s studio for baking and optional glazing.
