Gulf Coast Pet Crematory, Inc. was founded on August 1, 1999. After graduating from high school in Dunnellon, Florida, owner Jeff Gibson moved to Atlanta, Georgia to attend Gupton-Jones College of Funeral Service. After receiving his degree in Mortuary Science in 1985, Jeff remained in the funeral industry in Atlanta until 1997. Jeff joined Deceased Pet Care, Inc. in Chamblee, Georgia in the summer of 1997.
After two years at Deceased Pet Care, Inc., Jeff decided to leave Atlanta, move to Florida and start his own business. His love of animals, the Florida sunshine and the beach combined with the beautiful city of Pensacola, Jeff decided this was the place to open Gulf Coast Pet Crematory, Inc.
