who we are

Precious Creature is a full time alternative pet aftercare business located in the heart of Southern California, about an hour East of Los Angeles. With a lifelong passion for pets, art and death care, owner and trained taxidermist Lauren Lysak marries all three together to bring a renewed vision to pet aftercare.

Our primary focus is on providing caring and quality pet aftercare. We strive to give comfort in likely the most trying time of pet ownership with our alternative and bespoke approach to caring for a deceased pet. We offer a wide variety of unique services to honor your loved one; from private water cremation to complete life-size taxidermy and everything in between. Please see our Pet Aftercare page for information and photos of past precious creatures.

Please Note: All animals utilized are either beloved pets or are found or gifted deceased as casualties of the pet industry, depredation efforts, euthanasia, or other unavoidable deaths. Every precious creature is dealt with respectfully and in the name of science, art, and remembrance.
