Guardian Pet Aquamation is owned by Dr. Kathleen Cooney in Loveland, Colorado. Dr. Cooney is well known in the region as the founder of Home to Heaven, P.C., an in-home pet hospice and euthanasia service. She began offering aquamation to families in the summer of 2013. The system is operated on her beautiful farm in Loveland, Colorado. In January 2016, Dr. Cooney sold Home to Heaven and created Guardian Pet Aquamation as its own separate company to continue meeting the needs of environmentally-conscious pet owners in northern Colorado. Home to Heaven collaborates closely with Dr. Cooney and her team and believes offering an environmentally-friendly option in pet aftercare is vital to protect our earth. Other veterinary clinics around the northern Front Range are also using Guardian Pet Aquamation now too. Dr. Cooney is very active in the growing world of aquamation services. She consults regularly with others and participates in seminars and meetings to further its applications. You can reach Dr. Cooney directly at email@example.com.

Bethany Tourjee is an avid animal lover, born and raised in rural Southwest Colorado, near Mesa Verde. Growing up loving and being loved by dogs and cats who were important members of her family has shaped her deep affinity for animals and the relationship with their families. She has always been a magnet to pets of all kinds whenever spending time with family and friends. In 2013, she stretched her wings and moved to Fort Collins to attend CSU for a degree in Human Development and Family Studies, and explore new adventures.
In 2016, an internship for Pets Forever nurtured her interest in the human-animal bond. This non-profit organization helps elderly and disabled owners keep their pets as long as possible for mutual benefit of both people and their fur family. Bethany found a connection to end-of-life care and grief asa continued expression of love.
Working within the family of Guardian Pet Aquamation, Bethany is honored to be available to aid families as they say goodbye to their furry family members and bring them to aquamation for continued connection in the circle of life.
