Pet Cremation Services
The death of a cherished pet is a heartbreaking experience. Homeward Bound offers quality companion animal cremation services for people seeking a dignified alternative for their beloved pet’s remains. Our experienced and professional service includes a number of cremation options and a variety of attractive urns.
Cremation options include the following:
This service gives the pet complete privacy in the cremation chamber. All ashes are gathered up and carefully packaged for return to the owner.
In a semi-private cremation, a barricade is placed in the center of the cremation chamber with a pet on each side. Ashes are kept separate and are carefully packaged for return to the owner.
This service is for clients who do not wish to retain their pet’s remains, but still wish to ensure that their deceased pet is treated in a dignified manner.
