Our beloved pets provide us with unconditional love and friendship, but they, unfortunately, leave us all too soon. While this is something that no one wants to think about until they have to, just know that we are here to help when the time does come.
As pet owners ourselves, we have experienced the pain of losing a loved one and having to make some very tough decisions. Our professional and compassionate staff can help you with pre-planning, throughout the cremation process, and also emotional support when healing from your loss. Pets are part of the family, so let us assist you in giving your beloved pet the dignified farewell and attention he/she deserves.
- You may wish to consider your options ahead of time:
- Private Cremation with the ashes returned for you to keep/bury/scatter in a small box
- Communal Cremation
- Take your pet home to bury.
- A paw print made as a keep sake
Alternative services: Please let us know if you would like to donate your pet's body for surgical training purposes. To ensure we provide a skilled surgical service we practice more complicated surgical procedures on cadavers when possible. The gift of your pet's body may help save the life of another pet at a future date.
Cremations are contracted through Franklin Pet Cemetery. They are located at 2405 Ashby Rd, Merced, CA 95348-3557. They visit us every Tuesday and Friday.
Private cremations take one week for the remains to be returned, we will contact you when they are ready for collection.
