CREMATION SERVICES

As a pet owner, you have the special responsibility of making aftercare choices on your pet’s behalf. Working together with your veterinary clinic, we will gently guide you through the process of making cremation arrangements that are fitting for you and your pet.

Private Cremation

Private cremation provides you with the opportunity to keep your pet’s cremated remains as a permanent and personal keepsake. When you choose private cremation, your treasured pet will be the only pet in the cremation chamber during the cremation process. When the cremation process is complete, we ensure that you receive only the cremated remains of your pet. For pet owners who prefer to say goodbye to their cherished pet in a private setting with family and close friends, Metro offers the opportunity for a Viewing & Visitation service. In a pleasant and serene visitation room, you will be in close proximity to your pet during the private cremation.

Individually Partitioned Cremation

Individually partitioned cremation provides you with the opportunity to keep your pet’s cremated remains as a permanent and personal keepsake. When you choose individually partitioned cremation, your treasured pet is placed into the crematory and separated from the other pets with partitions. When the cremation process is complete, we ensure that you receive only the cremated remains of your pet in your choice of one of our complimentary urns.

Communal Cremation

With communal cremation, your pet is gently placed into the crematory together with other pets. Because no cremated remains are returned to you when you choose a communal cremation, you may wish to consider one of our personalized memorial paw prints as a timeless remembrance.

Private Cremation with Viewing

For some people being able to come to our center to say a final farewell is an integral part of their healing process. For others being close to their pet during the cremation process gives them peace of mind. We offer a tranquil reflection room for the family’s use. Some choose to stay for the entire cremation, while others wish to have one final goodbye. These services are subject to availability and have an additional service fee. Please contact our center for details and availability.
