When you choose private cremation, you will receive only your pet’s cremains. You can be assured of this because in a private cremation there is only one pet in the chamber. All paperwork is checked very carefully. Your pet is gently and respectfully placed in the cremation chamber. After the cremation process, the chamber is emptied. Your pet’s cremains are processed and put into the proper container according to the package you chose. A cremation certificate is provided for your records.
Pets are cremated with other pets at the same time. This service is for pet owners who do not want the cremated remains returned, but still want final care and dignity for their loved one. The Lakes Staff will scatter the cremated remains on our own private property on your behalf. The price of a communal cremation is the same as the basic package above.
To meet at the crematory after hours, there is a charge of $35.
