Aftercare & Cremation services
There are several options regarding the care of your pets body after the euthanasia is complete. Again, this is a personal choice and there is no wrong answer. We have partnered with Trusted Journey Pet Memorial Services to offer our pet parents the cremation services below. All our patients are taken to Pet Rest Gardens in Ossian, IN for cremation. You can visit Trusted Journey's website for more information on their locations and services.
You take your pet back home with you to bury yourself. We will provide a burial box for you to transport your pet from our office to your home. * Some city and/or county ordinances do not allow residents to bury animals within city limits. *
With group cremation, your pet is gently placed into the crematory together with other pets. Once the cremation process is complete, the communal remains are collected and spread in a designated rose garden at Pet Rest Gardens. You are able to visit the gardens at Pet Rest, please visit their website HERE for visiting hours.
Private Cremation w/ Ash Return
When you choose private cremation, your pet will be the only pet in the cremation chamber during the cremation process. When the cremation process is complete, your pets ashes are returned to you in a Rosewood Urn with a complimentary Clay Paw Print of your pet's paw.
