Individual Cremation

We offer individual cremations, a service that includes the option of free pick-up from the vet hospital, and a natural wooden um for the remains. We can pick up your pet from your residence as well, with a starting fee of $35, depending on the location. The individual cremation service starts at $165 for a small pet.

Witness cremations are available by appointment, with an extra service fee starting at $75.

Remains may be picked up at our office or returned to your vet’s office free of charge. They may also be returned to you with First-Class Registered Mail, for an extra postage and handling fee.

Unwanted remains may be left at Pet’s Rest, which are then scattered at our cemetery. We will hold cremated remains for up to a year from the date of cremation; any remains that are left past a year will be scattered at Pet’s Rest Cemetery.

Individual Lawn Burials

For individual lawn burials we will pick up your pet, build a box or casket to your pet's size and prepare the grave. If you wish to be present for the burial we can arrange a time. You can view your pet in our chapel, bring a blanket, toy or a favorite item to include in the box, and witness the interment while you are at Pet's Rest. A temporary marker will be placed on the grave until the permanent marker or monument arrives.
