Welcome to our Peternity family. We are a small, caring group who are dedicated to honoring and celebrating the love you share with your pets. Peternity.com was founded in 2003 by Colleen Mihelich, and was born out of a need to find a valuable vocation, a lifetime of understanding of deep grief, and a love for animals. Each of us has been touched by the loss of a beloved pet and understands the heartache of that loss.
We are continually looking for unique, handcrafted pieces of art to express your love, joy and memories. Our standards are high. We search for items of the finest quality and workmanship. Whether it is a beautiful, hand turned wooden urn or a stunning glass memorial keepsake box, each piece has been lovingly crafted and personalized by the hands of an artist.
Your thoughts and questions are welcomed. Our goal is to provide memorial items and comfort that are not only of the highest quality, but also with the most personal significance. So, if there is something you don’t see here that would have meaning for you, please let us know and we’ll gladly explore your idea.

BOBO Our sweet family pooch. We rescued him from the Golden Retriever Club of Greater Los Angeles Rescue in the fall of 2008 and lost him in the spring of 2009. He was a sweet old guy - gentle as gentle could be. We lost him to cancer and he's still alive on our hearts. Our two children still include him as a family member in their nightly prayers.
