Mike HarrisFounder, President, & CEO
Mike is a third-generation licensed funeral home director and worked in his family’s funeral home for over 20 years. When Mike lost his two beloved Rottweilers, Hannah and Luke, he discovered the lack of professionalism and dignified care that was available. Mike decided there was a need in the industry that he could fill.
His loss became a dream. Given his education, training, experience, and family heritage, Mike knew it was his responsibility to improve the quality of end-of-life pet care. He started Pets at Peace by Harris Funeral Home in 2009 and given its immediate success, was able to launch Pet Passages® in 2011. It has grown into a nationwide franchise that has truly set the highest possible standard of dignified, quality care for the pet funeral and cremation profession.
