Services

The following cremation services are available direct to clients from either of the two Pet Farewells locations.
Individual cremations involve the separation of each pet in the cremator using a map drawn-up to show their exact physical placement, and we guarantee the return of the correct cremains to the pet owner. All of the cremation services include the cost of engraving, a certificate, and a copy of the poem Forever Friend.
