Cremation options:

Private Cremation - Your pet will be cremated privately by Pet Memorial Services and their ashes will be overnighted to you about a week after your appointment. This crematorium was selected for both their respectful handling of the entire process, and their multiple safe guards to make sure the right pet is in the right place at the right time. Please don't hesitate to ask more about this process if you have concerns. Attended cremation and additional urn options are available upon request
