Certified Memorial Pet Cremation™
For families who do not feel the need to do a private cremation, we offer an alternative that is equally dignified and is handled with the utmost of integrity and respect.
The Certified Memorial Pet Cremation™ is defined as multiple pets (maximum of 10) in the crematory chamber at the same time. With this process, there WILL BE co-mingling of cremains. For this reason, no cremains can be returned to the family. All pet’s cremated remains will be interred in a memorialization column located at the PA State Pet Memorial.
This type of cremation is offered for pet owner families who want to know their beloved pet was handled with respect and dignity but at a significantly less cost than a private cremation and to a much higher standard and integrity than cremation disposal services offered by many local animal hospitals.
With a Certified Memorial Pet Cremation™, you will know exactly where your pet’s cremains have been interred and you are invited to visit at any time. You may also want to place a memorial nameplate or memorial photo plate to pay tribute to your pet on the memorial column in which your pet’s cremains are interred.
- Pick up of your pet within four hours of authorization by you from either the home or animal hospital.
- The memorialization cremations will be performed on Saturdays.
- Cremains are interred in a memorial column located at the PA State Pet Memorial.
- You will receive a certificate of cremation.
- A nameplate will be placed on the front of the column to memorialize your pet or an optional photo plate can be purchased.
- You will receive two special poems, the “Saying Goodbye with Dignity” booklet, and an invitation to the Pet Loss Support.
