What is Pet Cremation?
The animal cremation process is the same as it is for humans. The body is placed into a cremation chamber and reduced to bone and ashes under extreme heat. You can keep the ashes with you forever in a beautiful personalized urn or box, or you may choose to scatter the remains in a particular place (subject to local regulations). Many families choose to scatter the remains across the water at a favorite pond or lake. If you decide to keep the cremains with you, cremation urns and boxes come in all shapes, sizes, and materials, so you can choose the one that best matches your pet's personality.
How Do Pet Cremations Work?
When your beloved friend dies, you may want an option other than a traditional burial. It's not practical for some families to bury a pet due to living in an urban area or a place where regulations prevent burial. With cremation, we pick up your pet from your home or your vet's office. We lovingly cremate the body and return the remains to you in just a few days. Legacy Chapels offers cremation services for dogs, cats, birds, and other household pets.
The pet cremation process takes less than an hour for small creatures but can take a few hours for larger ones. Legacy Chapels offers traditional engraved hardwood urns, but you can choose other ways to keep your dear friend close to you as well. Here are just a few of the options we offer.
- Pet Memorial Keepsake Jewelry: Each Keepsake Pendant has a small storage compartment where you can keep some of the cremains. When you put the pendant on a chain, your pet is always close to your heart.
- Heartfelt Keepsakes: The uniquely shaped containers have a removable back where you can store your pet's cremains.
- Personalized Stone Memorials: These stones are engraved with your pet's name or a poem that is special to you. This marker is a lovely way to mark the place where you spread your pet's ashes.
- Life Tree Memorials: Planting a tree in memory of your pet gives you a visible reminder that will live on for generations.
