Pet Services

We strive to provide the best possible experience for our families. Our therapy dog team is an integral part of creating a warm, inviting atmosphere where people feel comfortable to express their emotions as they work through the difficult process of grieving for their lost loved one. 
Grief therapy dogs are specially trained to identify emotional distress. They are naturally calm and confident, generally quiet and demonstrate an inherent fondness for giving and receiving affection. They are particularly beneficial for children, who may not know how to verbalize what they’re feeling. 
If you are interested in having our therapy dogs at a service, please let us know. Harper, Harley, Foster and Huxley would be honored to support your family and friends during an emotional time. 

Private Cremation

A private cremation means your pet is placed in the cremation chamber alone. Upon completion of the cremation, your pet's cremated remains are removed from the chamber, and returned to you. Specialty Urns are available for an additional cost, please ask our staff for details.

Viewing Cremation

Many 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 the cremation in a viewing room. This option is not available at all crematories. Please ask our staff for further information.

Individual Cremation

Here, your pet shares space in the cremation chamber with other pets, but as each pet carries a unique identification tag into the chamber, you’re ensured of receiving only your pet’s cremated remains. Specialty Urns are available for an additional cost, please ask our staff for details.

Communal Cremation

In a communal cremation, your pet is cremated along with a number of other pets, and the cremated remains are not separated. No cremated remains are returned to you. It is common practice for these cremated remains to be scattered on private land by one of our staff members.

Home Burial

While burying your pet at home keeps it close and gives you the opportunity to create a permanent memorial such as a grave marker or tree planted over the pet's grave, it may not be appropriate because you live in an apartment, or it is prohibited by law. Also, you should consider what would happen if you moved.

Professional Burial

More and more pet cemeteries are being established and while more costly, this option ensures that your pet's remains will remain undisturbed, and cared for, in perpetuity. Knowing that a professional is taking care of your pet's final arrangements can help alleviate some of the stress and worry at this difficult time.

Professional Cremation

If you would like to keep your pet's remains but don't have a place to bury the body, cremation may a better alternative. You can keep your pet at home without the concern of a home burial or scatter your pet's ashes rather than preserve them.


Whether you choose burial or cremation, you must also decide how you want to honor your pet's life. Whether it is an informal gathering or an elaborate service, it is important to conduct some type of ceremony to provide you with closure.

No one wants to contemplate the death of pet. But taking this time now will help you not only honor the life of your beloved pet but also help you heal. Please Contact Us to help you make these important decisions.
