Pet Services - Aquamation

Coping with the loss of a pet is difficult. We understand how deeply it can affect you and your family. But what is aquamation? Aquamation is a flameless cremation process that uses water instead of fire. A combination of water flow, temperature, and alkalinity replicates and accelarates nature's course of when a body is laid to rest in the soil. The end result is bone mineral "ashes," just like with flame cremation.


    Your pet is clearly identified with a uniquely numbered stainless steel ID tag that stays with him/her throughout the process. They are then placed in a segregated part of the Pet-400 machine and returned to you at the end of the process in the urn you selected.
    Communal aquamation is for pet owners who do not wish to keep their pet's aquamated remains, but would still like to care for their pet's remains in a dignified and loving way. In a communal aquamation, multiple pets are aquamated. The aquamated remains are then spread on private land by one of our staff members.

Memorial Items

Prior to aquamation, we can create keepsakes for you to remember your pet for years to come. This includes ink paw prints, clay paw prints, or keepsakes that include locks of fur or feathers. Ask our staff for more details on what we offer.

"Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day. It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them."

— John Grogan, Marley and Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog
