Cremation & Aftercare

As a pet owner, you have the special responsibility of making aftercare choices on your pet’s behalf. Working together with our team, we will gently guide you through the process of making cremation arrangements that are fitting for you and your pet. Home with Dignity proudly works with local crematoriums to ensure that your pet is taken care of with dignified and compassionate care.

Arrangements for Your Pet

Because each family’s needs are different, you have the option of choosing any one or all the services that lovingly and appropriately helps you memorialize your cherished pet in a way that is most comfortable and suitable for you personally.

We want to make this process as easy as possible for you and your family. We will present you with aftercare options and you can let us know what you desire. If you choose to cremate your pet, our doctor will immediately transport your pet with dignity and care to the crematorium.

Cremation and Aftercare Options

Depending on your location and the local crematorium that we partner with in your area, there may be different cremation and aftercare options available to you. Our Care Coordinators will always discuss all the available options and answer any questions you may have.

Individual Cremation

Individual cremation provides you with the opportunity to keep your pet’s cremated remains as a permanent and personal keepsake. When you choose individual cremation, your treasured pet is placed into the crematory and separated from the other pets with partitions.

Communal Cremation

With communal cremation, your pet is gently placed into the crematory together with other pets. Because no cremated remains are returned to you when you choose a communal cremation, you may wish to consider a personalized memorial keepsake such as a clay pawprint as a timeless remembrance.

Home Burial

If you desire to bury your pet at home, our doctors do not assist with the preparations.

Our partnered crematoriums will ensure your pet is taken care of with dignified and compassionate care. If you decide on individual cremation and/or memorial keepsake items, the crematorium will contact you to inform you that your pet’s ashes and items are ready for pick up. If you have any concerns or questions regarding cremation or the crematorium, please contact our care team.

If you have general questions about your pet's health and want to know more about our services, please call or text us. A care coordinator is ready and would love to help.
