Saying goodbye to a beloved pet is usually a time of great emotion. As we cherish the memories of our pet, making decisions regarding pet aftercare can be difficult and sometimes overwhelming.

In 1995, facing similar questions and choices regarding the loss of a family pet, Scott Hunter could find no satisfactory answers. The pet aftercare industry seemed to offer very little regulation; most companies providing pet aftercare services did so with minimal licensing and inferior standards.

A year later, in 1996, Scott founded Gateway, Canada’s first accredited pet aftercare provider. Since that time, Gateway has continued to set the industry standard for excellence in ethical pet aftercare across North America.
