Pet Cremation Process

Pet Cremation Process


Pet cremation is performed to prepare the remains of the pet for final disposition. It is carried out by placing the pet’s remains into a cremation unit where they are subjected to intense heat. Paws & Remember's policy is to return 100% of the retrievable remains of the pets we memorialize through the cremation services provided.

Pet Cremation Options


Private Pet Cremation

Private Cremation is a cremation procedure during which only one animal’s body is present in the cremation unit during the cremation process. The animal is uniquely identified throughout the process. This results in the animal’s cremated remains being the only remains processed and returned.

Partitioned Pet Cremation

A Partitioned Cremation is a cremation procedure during which more than one animal’s body is present in a larger cremation unit and the cremated remains of specific pets are to be returned. A method of separation is used between each pet, and the cremated remains of each pet are identifiable, retrievable, processed and returned.

Communal Pet Cremation

A Communal Cremation is a cremation procedure where multiple pets are cremated together without any form of separation. Cremated remains are not returned.
