Pet Cremation Options
Pet Cremation enables you to honor your faithful companion in a way that will bring you comfort. Whether you decide to keep your pet’s cremated remains at home, scatter them in a meaningful place, or allow us to scatter them, cremation gives you a greater freedom to honor your pet in your own special way.
Pet Pilgrimage offers Private and Communal Cremation options.
When you choose private cremation, your pet is gently placed unaccompanied in the crematory for a private service. If you wish, your pet can be wrapped in its favorite blanket, nestled in its bed, or accompanied by a favorite toy. Your pet’s cremated remains are returned to you as quickly as possible, accompanied by several meaningful keepsakes. The complete private cremation service is described below.
Communal cremation is a comforting option for those who do not wish to have their pet’s cremated remains returned. After communal cremation, the remains are carefully and respectfully scattered in a private, serene location. Because no cremated remains are returned to you, ask us about memorial keepsakes that you may want to consider, such as a personalized memorial paw print.

Communal Cremation – $100
Communal cremation is a comforting option for those who do not wish to have their pet’s cremated remains returned.

- You can personally bring your pet to Pet Pilgrimage, or we can arrange transportation for your pet from your home or veterinary clinic.
