Options for aftercare include home burial, general cremation, and individual cremation with your pet’s ashes being returned to you.

Burying your pet’s body at home is the most inexpensive option.  We have information for you on the proper way to bury your pet and the Washington State Regulations. Please review this information via the highlighted links

With general cremation, your pet will be cremated with other pets. The ashes will be buried by the cremation facility.  Price is based on the size of the pet and ranges from $100 to $300. Contact us if you need an exact price quote.

If you choose individual cremation, your pet’s ashes are returned to you in a wood urn or a paw print tin.   Price is based on the size of the pet and ranges from $200 to $400. Contact us if you need an exact quote.  Alternative urn options are available.  If you are interested in urn options, please contact us.

Transportation to the cremation facility is included with the euthanasia.
