About Peaceful Pets

Peaceful Pets was established by. Dr. Jeanette Yamamoto in the Santa Clarita Valley in September 2011 to help fulfill the growing need for in-home euthanasia services. Being from the SCV, Dr. Yamamoto felt this was an important way she could serve her hometown.

Peaceful Pets' philosophy is based on the belief that our client's and their pet's needs are of the utmost importance during the difficult time associated with euthanasia.  We strive to ensure that this final phase of life is one filled with comfort, compassion, and love.  We believe that your pet's beautiful story deserves a beautiful ending.
