About Pet Cremation

Cremation ensures that your pet’s remains will be with you for years to come. Intense heat transforms your pet back to its basic elements. Cremation accomplishes in minutes what would take years to happen naturally. After cremation there is only purified bone fragments remaining. Next is a cool-down period before the cremation chamber can be opened. All remains are carefully removed and are further processed into a fine sand-like texture. Remains are placed into an urn and returned to you.



Please note: As of March 31st, 2024 we are no longer able to accept pets larger than 50 pounds. We are very sorry for the inconvenience. For pets larger than 50 pounds please contact your veterinary service.
