Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is Cremation?

Cremation is a clean and rapid method of reducing the body to its basic elements through heat (l600-l800 degrees) and evaporation. The pet is gently placed on the hearth of the crematory and when the cremation is completed the fragments are carefully gathered and processed into a powdery substance called cremains.

Private cremation means that your pet is cremated alone. Your pet's privacy is assured. The ashes are returned to the owner in a special wooden box. We also accommodate the desire of some pet owners to witness the placement of their pet into the crematory.

Communal cremation means that your pet is cremated along with other pets. The ashes cannot be separated and are not returned to the owner. The ashes are scattered in our memorial garden.
