Peaceful Pets USA is a family-owned business operated by Tracy Peters. Tracy is a lifelong animal lover and multiple pet owner.
After living and working in Hardin County for several years, Tracy realized the need for a local pet cremation service. She combined her experience and love for animals to create Peaceful Pets USA.
In her neighborhood and around the community, Tracy is known for rescuing stray animals. She nurtures them back to good health and then finds them a loving home. Several years ago, one of the rescues, a small dog, was actually left in her mailbox. This sweet dog became a permanent member of the household, they named him Malebox. Tracy also has a two cats named Willow and Marvin.
Tracy and her husband Stephen, a Vietnam Veteran, live in Elizabethtown. They have three grown children, Caleb, Sadie and Seth.
In addition, the Peaceful Pets USA office is home to Squeaky and Inky, two cats adopted after their elderly owners passed away. The two of them have the run of the place, and love for visitors to stop by and pet them.
Please stop by anytime to visit our comfort cats and meet with Tracy.
Our building was originally built in 1876 as the H & E train station, running only from Hodgenville, KY to Elizabethtown, KY. We bought the building and spent a little over a year remodeling it. The original tongue and groove wood is still behind the current walls and ceilings, and a very heavy and old stove pipe is stuck in the ceiling to this day. I have found an old milk bottle, a huge wrench, a sledge hammer, a pile of whiskey bottles and old empty beer cans (way up in the ceiling), a skeleton (of a bird) and a wheat back penny dated 1911.
Squeaky and Inky are rescue cats from Indiana. A friend of Tracy's elderly parents owned 3 cats and the owners passed away. Tracy's friend could not take on 3 cats due to other pets she has and her brother is highly allergic. Tracy offered to take the oldest cat, Scooter, that was very overweight because she (later turned out she was actually a he) was 14-18 years old. Tracy didn't think anyone would take her due to her age.
But then, Tracy was worried the cat might get depressed being alone after having lived with the other two for 6-8 years. Tracy spoke with her friend and found out she hadn't found homes for the other two cats "Inky" and "Squeaky." Tracy offered to take all three cats. They all came to live at the Peaceful Pets USA office. Unfortunately, Scooter got cancer after about a year and is no longer with us.
