CREMATION SERVICES

Our company is founded on compassionate care and understanding for your loss, as we have gone through those same emotions and experiences. We treat every animal we handle as if they were our own, and feel honored that we are able to help your pet pass on to its next journey. Cremation is a sacred experience, and should be treated as such.  We are a small independently owned company that has been serving the region since 1996.  We pioneered pet cremation in Delaware and are fortunate to serve the veterinary community that values service and cares that each animal is handled in a respectful, compassionate and dignified manner. Every animal is handled and looked after personally and with great respect.


Individual Cremation

Your pet will be individually cremated with our Animal Spirit™ ID Disk and their sole cremains will be returned to you.  Each individual cremation is returned in our unique, treasure chest style box with a signed card certifying the individual cremation and the date of the cremation with your pet's name and date of passing.  If you choose, we will be happy to clip a portion of your pet's fur and include it in the urn separate from the ashes and we can also make a clay paw impression of one of the front paws of your beloved pet for a small additional fee.  Your pet's ashes will normally be ready within 24-48 hours.  The cost for this service ranges depending on the size of each pet, from $80 for small pets such as hamsters and guinea pigs, up to $270 for much larger pets weighing 130 lbs.

Family Attended Private Cremation

For those who wish to be present and say a final goodbye before the cremation process begins.  This option is scheduled at a specific time and your pets ashes will be ready within 1 ½ to 3 hours depending on the size of each pet.  You may wait in our waiting room or some families go out for a walk in a nearby park.  You will also receive a clay paw impression of your pet and you will receive a 10% discount on any upgraded urn purchase.  The cost of this service is $325 for pets weighing up to 59 lbs. and $385 for pets pets 60 lbs and over.

Communal Cremation

Your pet will be cremated together with other pets and the ashes will not be returned to you.  All cremains are scattered in a beautiful setting on a farm in Pennsylvania.  The cost of this service ranges from $50-$145.

We can provide transportation of your pet from your home or veterinarians office for either private or communal cremation service. Transportation is normally provided within a 30 mile radius of Wilmington, Delaware. Fees range depending upon location and time of day.  Weekend transportation is available for an additional fee.

In Home Euthanasia

We work closely with the area's best mobile veterinarians. We can either directly refer you to a mobile vet, or we can help make all the arrangements for you so you only need to make one phone call, and we can help make all the logistical arrangements.  Fees for a mobile veterinarian to come to you ranges from $200-$300 depending on location and time of day. Please refer to the Options for Euthanasia page for a list of area mobile vets.
