What are my options for pet cremation?

Will I be able to get my pet’s ashes back?

When families choose cremation for a pet that has passed on, they commonly wonder if they can have the ashes returned to them for burial or scattering. The answer to this question depends on the cremation option you select. Communal pet cremation involves the cremation of more than 1 animal so if you choose this option, your pet’s ashes will be mixed with those of others. On the other hand, opting for private pet cremation means that your pet’s remains will be cremated alone and you can have the ashes returned to you.

What can I do with the ashes following pet cremation?

You have several options to choose from following the cremation of your pet’s remains. If you choose communal cremation, then the pet cemetery may bury these ashes on site. If you opt for private cremation, then you can select to have the ashes buried in a plot on the grounds. Some individuals choose to keep the cremated remains and to bury them at home or in a location that was loved by their pet. Finally, keeping the ashes in an urn or scattering the ashes are also possibilities.
