Pet Cremation Options
During your scheduled euthanasia appointment, our veterinarian will walk you through the cremation options and payment for the crematory services. We work with and trust Pet Cremation Services (PCS) for body care and cremation services. Our team will provide transportation to the cremation location, removing that burden off of your shoulders during this difficult time.
There are three categories of defined cremation services available:
Your pet is privately cremated as the only pet in the crematorium.
Your pet is placed with other pets in the crematorium and set apart at an appropriate distance to allow the return of your pet’s ashes. There may be a slight crossover of ashes.
Your pet is placed with a number of other pets. In this case we will not be able to return your pet’s ashes.
Pet Cemetary BurialIf you are interested in a pet cemetery as a memorial option, here are three options in the Colorado Front Range that we recommend:
Seven Stones Cemetery – (303) 717-7117
Evergreen Pet Cemetery – (303) 674-7777
Precious Memories Pet Cemetery in Fort Collins – (970) 482-7557We would advise you to contact the pet cemetery you choose several days in advance of your scheduled appointment for euthanasia so that they can be prepared to help you as you choose.
We suggest that you check with your local city or county regarding their regulations and the legality of home burial. We also encourage you to have the burial site prepared and that the site is at least 4 ½-5 feet deep. Our veterinarian will walk you through this during our visit. Having the burial site prepared beforehand allows you to have more time for memorializing and honoring your pet at the time of euthanasia.The 2019 National Pet Memorial Day Service at the Seven Stones Pet Cemetary Dr. Larry Magnuson visiting the Seven Stones Pet Cemetary
