Losing Your Pet

Facing the loss of your pet, whether expected or sudden can be a very traumatic experience.  At times it can be overwhelming and pet owners may be confused as to how to handle the loss.

Sometimes the thought of leaving your pet at the veterinary clinic is very uncomfortable and some families with pets choose to take care of the body of their loved one in other ways.

Pets have become a part of the family and that is why pet owners often wish to deal with the death of their companions through burial or cremation.

Why Cremation

Pet cremation is a much more delicate alternative to other means of disposing of your loved one.  Through cremation, pet owners are able to make the decision to keep their pets with them, or to spread or bury their companions ashes somewhere that may have held a special meaning.  Either way, with cremation, pet owners are able to memorialize their pets.

Cremation is not just for dogs and cats, but for animals of all sizes.  There are also many different options as to the method of cremation that is right for you.  Visit our Services section to learn more about the cremation process and why this may be the right option for you.

Dear Dana and Lynn -

Sharon and I wish to thank you so much for your kindness and compassion following the loss of our beloved Carmine.  The gentle, reverent handling of Carmine touched us deeply and helped us in this time of grief.  God used you as a blessing for our family.  Thank you from the depths of our hearts.

Tom and Sharon Foster-Rodman
