100% Private Same Day Cremation: $195.00 (Includes a wood urn – shown below – several sizes – engraving $50 per side)
Only your pet is placed in the crematory for the entire duration of the cremation. If the cremation is started early enough in the day (2 PM M-F & Noon Sat & Sun), the ashes could be picked up that same day, otherwise on the next business day. Private pet cremation’s are performed Monday – Friday, 9 AM – 4:30 PM and Saturday and Sunday 10 AM – 2 PM.
WE CANNOT BEGIN TO DESCRIBE HOW DIFFERENT WE ARE THAN LEAVING YOUR PET WITH THE VET AFTER EUTHANASIA. IF YOUR PET COULD DECIDE, THEY WOULD CHOOSE OUR CREMATION EVERY TIME. WE HOLD PETS TO THE HIGHEST STANDARDS, THEY ARE TREATED LIKE OUR OWN FAMILY IN OUR CARE.
Euthanasia: $290.00 At your home or our location in our Family Room
A wonderful and gentle veterinarian will come to your residence and perform the euthanasia on site. You, your pet, your family can be kept in a comfortable environment for what will be a very sad and personal experience. You may also wish to have the euthanasia performed at our location. We can also arrange for the veterinarian to perform it in our family room. The appointment takes lasts about 45 minutes. Before the vet leaves, they will make a clay paw print impression for you.
Families can either then take their time and bring their pets in to our office, or we can arrange for your pet to be transported back to our office. The veterinarian does not take your pet, a different staff member would arrive either immediately after the appointment or however long you wish before the transport would happen. Once at our office, our crematory is on site and could begin immediately totally 100% Private. *Transportation & Cremation are separate items, not included in the cost of euthanasia.
Transportation Charges – From $125.00

How are we different than MN Pets? MN Pets uses a crematory in South St. Paul, that performs cremations in groups, and their clients pets ashes takes several days or a week or more to get ashes back. Being unregulated, many vets use terms like “separate” or “individual” cremation, however, if your vet uses VHA (Veterinary Hospital Association) crematory, then its not a private cremation, and you’re being misled and there are several other animals with your pet in the crematory, see for yourself herehttps://veterinaryha.org/services/cremation-services . Ask your vet if they use VHA Crematory, if they do, its not a private cremation. Since we operate our own crematories and only perform private cremation, our customers get ONLY their pets ashes back, and get them back within hours, not weeks.
MOST CLINICS HAVE A FREEZER, AND WHEN YOU LEAVE THEIR CLINIC, YOUR PET IS PLACED IN A PLASTIC BAG AND PLACED IN FREEZER. UP TO A WEEK LATER THEY ARE PICKED UP AND BROUGHT TO A CREMATORY IN SOUTH SAINT PAUL WHERE THEY ARE CREMATED WITH OTHER ANIMALS. THE ASHES ULTIMATELY GET BROUGHT BACK TO THE CLINIC AND YOU GET CALLED, SOMETIMES TWO WEEKS LATER THAT YOU CAN PICK UP THE ASHES…
Please let us know ahead of time if you wish to be present at the start of the cremation so we can guarantee availability of the crematory at the time you arrive.
