As you prepare for end-of-life, it is important to understand all your aftercare options. Everyone has different needs. What is important to remember is that your decision reflects the love and devotion you hold for your friend.
No request is too big or too small.
If you choose pet cremation, Home to Heaven will provide transportation of your companion to the crematory. You can choose the crematory you prefer, or Home to Heaven can make the choice for you. All of the local pet crematoriums are courteous, professional, and will cater to your every need.
Once you have made your decision, we will calculate the costs and help you make all necessary arrangements. We will also make payment arrangements with you at that time.
Types of Pet Cremation Services
Private cremation: Your pet will be cremated privately and the ashes returned to you. Each pet crematory has their standard presentation of the ashes. You can also choose a special urn or keepsake box at the crematory if you prefer.
Communal cremation: Your pet will be cremated with other pets. Communal ashes will be spread according to the individual crematory's method.
Chemical cremation: This is a service provided by Colorado State University's Veterinary Teaching Hospital and offered to families living within 20 miles of CSU in Fort Collins (some special arrangements may be made for families on an individual basis). If you choose this cremation, you also have the option to donate your companion's body for teaching purposes. Students and faculty study your pet’s underlying conditions and work to improve future care for other pets.
Burial of your loved one’s ashes in a pet cemetery is available at Precious Memories for an additional fee. Please contact them for pricing and options.
