Pet Services

Animals are wonderfully agreeable friends.  They ask so little of us, and give so much love in return. When it comes time for you to let go of your animal companion, making the decisions on how to care for their physical remains can be heart-wrenching.

Pet Cremation

Cremating a pet is one part, you still need to care for your families grief.  Upon completion of the cremation, your pet's cremated remains should be returned to you, in an urn of your choice.  Let our website help you with some special ways to honor the pet that gave so much to your family.  Have a plan in place.

Viewing Pet Cremation

Some times family members want to be involved in the cremation of their pet. This is just like a private cremation, but your family is present during your pets cremation process. This option is not available at all crematories.  Please ask the facility performing the cremation or your local veterinary to guide you to a provider that can accommodate these types of wishes. 

Pet Cremation

The cremation of a pets is performed by a reduction of the animals remains by heat, resulting in created remains.  A final resting place for the cremated remains is created by being placed in a special urn of your choice.   We recommend you locate a pet cremation provider that has a professional history in your community, will perform the cremation services of your choice and that you trust . 

Some common choices- Private cremation, witnessing the cremation, Visitations, urns, and creating permanent memorial sites.
