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.  For pricing and additional information, please click here.

Cremation options include the following:

Private

This service gives the animal complete privacy in the cremation chamber. All  remains and ashes are gathered up and carefully packaged for return to the owner.

Semi-Private

This is the most economical option for clients wishing to have ashes returned.  We process, depending on weight, between 2 and 4 animals at a time. Within the crematory  animals are separated from each other  by a fire-proof divider.  Each animal’s remains are handled individually after cremation and packaged for return to the owner.

Group

This service is for clients who do not wish to have  remains returned, but still wish to ensure that their deceased pet is treated in a dignified manner.
