Cremation is a process by which the body is reduced to its basic elements using extreme heat within a cremation chamber. All organic matter is consumed by heat or evaporation. The remaining bone fragments are referred to as "cremated remains" or "cremains." These cremains are then carefully removed from the cremation chamber for scattering or return to pet parents. At Loyal Companions we cremate all small animals (as small as goldfish) and dogs and cats of all sizes.

Pet Cremation Options

Private Cremation

Only your pet is present in the pet cremation chamber during the cremation process. The pet is uniquely identified throughout the whole process. The cremated remains of your pet are the only remains processed and returned. Cost includes:

  • Local veterinarian pickup
  • Personalized Paw Print Cremation Certificate
  • Fur clipping (unless absolutely not possible to retrieve)
  • Dignified cremation container
  • Temporary urn
  • Pet bereavement resources
  • Return of cremains to local vet, or directly to family

Partitioned Pet Cremation

A cremation procedure during which more than one pet is present in the pet cremation chamber and the cremated remains of specific pets are returned. Pets are separated using approved mediums to minimize any chances of commingling. (It should be noted that due to a number of factors and multiple pets being cremated within the same unit at the same time, active commingling of cremated remains can occur). Cost includes:

  • Local veterinarian pickup
  • Personalized Paw Print Cremation Certificate
  • Fur clipping (unless absolutely not possible to retrieve)
  • Temporary urn
  • Pet bereavement resources
  • Return of cremains to local vet, or directly to family

Communal Pet Cremation

Communal cremation is a procedure in which multiple pets are cremated together without any form of separation. These commingled cremated remains are not returned to owners. Cost includes:

  • Local veterinarian pickup
  • Personalized Paw Print Cremation Certificate
  • Pet bereavement resources
  • Scattering of remains in our beautiful pet cremation garden at Hillcrest Cemetery
