Pet Services

Coping with the loss of a pet is difficult, as they’re often considered members of the family. By having a service, you can both honor their life and begin your grief journey. Our staff are happy to help you create a meaningful funeral service to give your pet the farewell that he or she deserves.




    Private cremation is where only one pet is present in the cremation chamber. After cremation, we remove your pet's cremated remains from the chamber and return them to you in a wood urn. Other urn options are available for an additional charge. 
    Communal cremation is for those who don’t want to keep their pet's cremated remains but want to care for their pet's remains in a dignified manner. For communal cremation, multiple pets are cremated at the same time and no ashes are returned.

Memorial Products

Before burial or cremation, we can create meaningful keepsakes, claw paws baked into a disk, personalized candles, jewelry, etc. Please reach out to our staff for more details on your memorial options.
