Answers

 

Many leave the decision of disposing of their pet up to their veterinarian and/or friends. However, it is important that you know about the alternatives available to you. Precious Pets works with hundreds of veterinarian clinics across the state. You may instruct your clinic to call us, or you may call us directly. Phones are answered after-hours and on weekends for emergencies.

 
 

Our crematory facility is located on-site, meaning, from the time we receive your pet your pet is tagged and brought directly to our facility and does not leave our facility until you pick him/her up. We specialize in individual cremations, thus, assuring you of receiving only your pet's cremains.

 
 

When making this decision there are many factors to consider. Cremation is an option that allows you to handle your pet's remains as you wish, whether it be burying them, scattering them, or keeping them in a decorative urn. Consideration of your living situation, personal and religious values, as well as plans for the future can help you determine whether cremation or burial of your pet is the right choice for you and your family. No matter what you decide, Precious Pets can meet your needs.

 
 

This decision is entirely a matter of choice. While some prefer to bury or scatter the ashes, one question to ask yourself is: Am I planning to remain at my residence indefinitely? If not, you may want to consider our urns, which allows you to bury the cremains in a sealed container and take it with you when you move. Some owners prefer to keep their pets’ cremains in an urn in their home. Our large urn inventory features many styles and sizes to suite your preference.

 
 

Under normal circumstances, if you call our office before 2 p.m., your pet will be ready for you to pick up at our office within 72 hours.

 
 

While home burial was a common practice many years ago, city ordinances usually prohibit pet home burial today. If you are renting, or move frequently home burial may not be an option. To many, a pet cemetery provides a sense of permanency, as well as a tranquil place to spend time reflecting on fond memories. It signifies a dignity to your pet that was a constant part of your life, always ready to give you love and companionship. Burying your pet in a pet cemetery brings honor and the ultimate gesture of love to a life that will be forever cherished.
