Private Cremation

A private cremation is a single animal cremation. We offer Video Certified Private Pet Cremation. Families that choose to attend and witness can have a sense of private closure during this final goodbye. Our staff is available to answer questions and provide guidance throughout the process. The cremated remains are placed in a cedar urn with a brass nameplate and photo frame, and returned to you. You will also receive certification of a private cremation, as well as your own individual Video Certified Private Pet Cremation DVD or thumb drive.

There are many animal hospitals that offer cremation services. Peaceful Pet Passage has been in business locally for almost three decades. We are dedicated to this community and we promise the following: 

- We can provide transport during regular business hours. 

- We will perform your private cremation within 1-10 days of receipt of your pet during a normal Monday-Friday work week. 

- Your family is welcome to witness the cremation, if they choose.

- Present or not, you will receive a Video Certified Private Cremation DVD or thumb drive. We believe in complete transparency.

- The cremated remains will be available for pickup at your convenience or can be delivered to your home.

To Celebrate & Honor 

Regardless of which option you choose, know that we will handle your beloved pet as we would handle our own. With compassion, respect and dignity. To help ease the transition at this difficult time, we are here to answer any questions. Many folks are comforted by founder Rob Lauver’s book Saying Goodbye with Dignity. We provide each client with their own copy to help ease the pain of loss.
