Eco-Friendly Pet Cremation and Aftercare
As animal lovers, we understand that your pet was a huge part of your family. We relate with the heartbreak you are going through and are here for you.
What to Expect: We pride ourselves in our compassion, quality care, integrity, and attention to detail. The first step is for you to understand your options. Below you will find information on a range of cremation types, viewing opportunities, and transportation services to respond to the needs of you and your family. Once you have decided, we invite you to complete our Pre-Arrangement form, found under the services tab at the top of the screen, so that we can learn more about your pet and your wishes. We also invite you to call us at any time with questions or concerns. After receiving your information and service requests, we will provide you an accurate estimated time of how long the cremation process will take. Our redundant system ensures that your beloved pet will be uniquely tracked throughout the entire time they are under our care. After the Aquamation process, the ash cremains will be returned in our complimentary standard wooden urn. If you'd like, we also carry a wide variety of other unique urns and gifts of remembrance's, including some hand-crafted by our local artists. The cost of cremation is determined by the weight of your pet and is comparable to traditional fire cremation. View the pricing schedule for all of our services here. Please contact us so that we may answer any questions you have, and give personal attention to your needs.

Private viewing service: An intimate opportunity to say goodbye to your pet in our private viewing room.
Mark this important passage with your loved ones in our private, peaceful environment purposely designed to honor the life of your pet. Our serene viewing space is an opportunity to reminisce on the memories you have made with your pet and a chance for a final goodbye.
The memorial service can be tailored to your specific needs and requests. To take a virtual tour of our private viewing room, please go here. Please keep in mind that due to the preparation required, all viewing times need to be booked in advance.
The type of cremation service you choose is a personal decision based on what's best for you and your family. All services take approximately 7 to 10 days.
This option is best for those who wish to have their pet processed in a completely individualized and personal manner. Your pet will not share the process with any other animals for the duration of the Aquamation and their cremains will be returned to you in a complimentary wooden box urn with a certificate of cremation.
Individual cremations are our most popular service used by pet owners who wish to have their pet’s cremains are returned to them. Your pet will be processed with care in the company of others in their own individual partition chamber that remains separate for the entirety of the Aquamation. Their cremains will be returned to you in a complimentary wooden box urn with a certificate of cremation.
With this service, their cremains will not be returned to you, but will instead be spread over private green spaces on Cape Cod.
