Animal Friends Cremation Services

A member of the Regency family

For over 30 years, Animal Friends Cremation Services has provided professional afterlife options to veterinarians and pet owners alike in the Erie, Pennsylvania area.

Animal Friends Cremation Services has served the Erie and northwestern Pennsylvania market with a very personal and family-oriented service. Beth and Pat Weldon are excited to retire, while also sharing mixed emotions for stepping away from the business they love and deep, lasting relationships with veterinarians and families in the community.

They knew they could not retire until they found someone who would care for their beloved pet Community. “In Regency, we knew we found the right match. Their dedication to respect, dignity, and quality assured us that Animal Friends would continue to offer the best in compassionate and professional care” stated Beth Weldon, owner of Animal Friends.

Regency is proud to provide premium service to the pet families and veterinarian community that have supported Animal Friends Cremation Services and look forward to carrying on their tradition of excellence for years to come.
