Burial is a very personal decision and only one you can make. However, the majority of pets in our society are cremated and there are several reasons for this. First, in many urban communities, laws and ordinances make it illegal for owners to bury their pets in the back yard. Second, if you did choose burial, that would more than likely require you to bury your pet in a designated pet cemetery. This option tends to be expensive. Third, cremation is an affordable and simple option that often did not exist in the past. Finally, with our society becoming so much more mobile, choosing cremation gives you the ability to take your pet's cremated remains with you if you move to another home.
If you choose burial we can assist you at a local pet cemetery or in the location of your choice. Be sure to consult local authorities before selecting the location, to make sure your pet’s remains are not disturbed in the future. We carry a complete line of beautiful pet caskets.
A pet funeral or memorial service is a fine way to bring friends and family together in remembrance of your pet.
Humans throughout all societies and cultures use ritual and ceremony to mark life’s transitional moments. Weddings as they celebrate love, partnership, and give all in attendance hope for a bright future. Birthday events, graduations and yes, funerals–are all ceremonies that bring people together in shared celebration–and affirm the common values of living in community.
When a cherished animal companion passes away support from family, friends, and neighbors is important. Holding a pet funeral in remembrance of your pet is a fine way to bring them all together, at a time when you need them most. Just as every pet is different, every family is different. Yet, the love we have for our pets is universal. And today, the memorialized expression of this deep affection is growing more common throughout North America. And chances are good that you and your family are currently thinking of designing and placing a memorial to your cherished pet. But where do you begin? You begin by thinking with your heart, not just your head.

Many families want to have that one last time to visit their pet after death, a visitation or wake if you will. While this may seem like a trivial thing - or possibly something that you consider morbid and odd, this one last time with your pet is valuable time spent. When the family pet dies, it is often the child's first exposure to death and can cause him or her to feel confused and upset. This gathering of family during this visitation helps the child to understand death, supports them in their grieving process and is used as a valuable tool for parents in explaining death as a natural event in life.
Many times family members, friends and other pets in the household will want to have their final goodbye with your pet too. Pets touch so many people during their short lives with us. Allow those around you the opportunity to come together, pay their respects, and support each other.
To make arrangements contact us.
