What is cremation?

Cremation of is carried out at a temperature ranging between 1400 to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit. The intense heat helps reduce the body to its basic elements and dried bone fragments. These fragments are pulverized to a uniform consistency and what is commonly referred to as "ash" or cremains.

Can I bring my pet to you?  

 Yes – most definitely. You may transfer your pet from your home or vet clinic. For some people, providing some of the care and making the final journey with their pet can be a therapeutic step in the grieving process. Please call for an appointment as we may be away from our location attending to a family.

Do you offer euthanasia?  

No we do not, as this must be performed and monitored closely by a licensed veterinarian, but we do work closely with Veterinarians who will come to your home. More and more people are choosing this option for the comfort and privacy it provides for their pets. We can arrange and coordinate our visit in accordance to your needs. The veterinarian fee is separate from our services.

My veterinarian clinic offers cremation, why would I not use them?  

 Many people cannot emotionally handle the thought of leaving their pet at the veterinary clinic. Animal stress levels are intensified when they're sick because they are vulnerable. It stresses them out more in a place they are smelling other animals. After which, the horrible aspect of walking back in to a busy waiting room, make cremation arrangements and then having to settle your bill in public.

Most veterinary hospitals, while working with thier particular commercial cremation provider, have never personally seen the facilities.  Where we differ is we offer personal, immediate attention for your pet and full access to the crematorium that veterinarians do not have. Families also state that our prices are less expensive than at their veterinarian. Piece of mind knowing you have spoken to us directly and wishes recorded.

We only perform "Private" or Individual Cremations, the only co-mingling of remains would be on a microscopic level, as our retort is fully air blast cleaned thoroughly after each and every cremation performed.
