For our cremation services we have partnered with Pet Passages of Melbourne, Florida. They are national leaders in the growing area of pet cremation and strive to offer the respectful care our pets deserve, regardless of whether you choose to have your pet’s ashes returned to you. They offer viewing opportunities as well as memorial services in a dedicated area of their facility. They also have many display items that enable you to memorialize your pet’s life. And if you are struggling with the loss of your pet, they will offer grief counseling.
We will transport your departed pet to Pet Passages for the cremation service you select. We encourage you to visit their website (www.PetPassages.com) or even to visit in person by appointment. The cremation options are as follows:
- Communal Cremation: multiple animals are cremated together, and the remains are scattered in a designated area. With this method, there is no way to have any portion of your pets’ ashes returned to you.
- Private Cremation: pets are cremated individually and remains are placed in a velvet pouch or urn of your choosing. We assure you that with this method there is no possibility of mixing of remains with other pets. Normally we do have owners pick up their pets remains once they have been cremated, although a home delivery or mail delivery may be scheduled for an additional fee. Our receptionist will review urn options in advance during appointment scheduling or you may view options on the Pet Passages website (www.PetPassages.com). There are so many options for urns, including custom options available at online sites like Etsy or elsewhere.
Pet Passages will treat you and your pet with the compassion and respect any family should be given upon the death of a very special member of the family. We encourage you to visit their website for additional information.
