Celebrating the Life of Your Pet

As a full service funeral home, we help families celebrate a life lived and loved.  When a family loses one of their household companions there is sorrow and a need for grieving.  Many families find comfort in celebrating their pet’s life and memorializing a cherished family friend.

Most people choose either to bury their pet or arrange for cremation.  The option to bury depends on whether you live inside or outside city limits, along with whether there is a pet cemetery nearby.  Although we do not offer pet cremation services on site, here are a few local recommendations that will handle your pet’s cremation with kindness and care:
