Private Same Day $245

Our Private Same Day Cremation is what we have been offering for almost 20 years.  This cremation is performed the same as would be for a person.  100% privately.  Only your pet is placed in the entire crematory.

Semi Private $125

Our Semi-Private cremation is an option where up to 3 other pets share the same crematory.  They are spaced out and separated by spacers and their ashes are swept out separately and placed in their own container.

If you would like our staff to transport your pet from your home or clinic back to our facility for cremation, the cost is $100 for anywhere within 30 miles of us.  If farther than that, add $5 per mile.

Pet Cremation

Preparing for the death of your pet can be just as important as preparing for the death of a parent or grandparent.

Frequently Asked Questions

From the moment your pet is in our care until the time you pick up the ashes they are labeled and have continuous cremation paperwork kept with them.  With our 100% Private Cremation, you can actually be present when their body is placed into the crematory so that you can see it’s only them in the crematory.

Yes, a very nice dark wood urn is complimentary.  We also have dozens of other urn options in all sorts of materials, some with the ability to insert your favorite photo of your pet.  Take a look at our products page to see our current inventory.

Ashes / Cremated Remains are tiny cremated bone fragments. The amount that is returned varies on the bone density and strength of your pet.  For a cat, you would typically get a volume of a couple of cups of ashes back, for a large dog, possibly the size of a rectangular Kleenex box.

We allow pet owners to stand from a safe distance outside the room that performs cremations.  From there, you can watch your pet go into the crematory, fully alone.  With your own eyes, you can verify it’s just your pet.

Pet Cremation (3)

How your pet will be handled, who will handle them, and who will cremate them makes a big difference.  Our company was formed originally when our own dog died and we realized what her fate would be had we chosen to leave her at the clinic.  For us, she was a family member and we didn’t want her bagged up and put in a freezer with so many other animals.
