The bond between you and your horse is like none other. Horses are majestic and noble creatures who allow us to use their strength as they bear us up and serve us loyally throughout their lives. This proud animal deserves compassion and dignity, up until the very end.

Since 1974, Metro Animal Service has been serving the needs of Chicago area residents and veterinarians by offering the finest in pet cremations.

Your horse has been a devoted companion, which is why we’re dedicated to caring for them with compassion and respect. Once they’re transported to our facility, we’ll offer dignified cremation options — both Private and Communal cremations.

Private Equine Cremation

Your beloved horse will be picked up by a local professional transportation provider and brought to our facility for the cremation service of your choice. Please contact Metro Animal Service for cremation and custom urn pricing and recommended transportation services. Cremation prices do not include transportation fees. We will make every effort to accommodate special requests.

With Metro Animal Service’s private cremation service, we believe in one pet, one chamber, which means that your horse will not be with multiple pets within the chamber. This ensures there is absolutely no comingling of ashes so that you can be sure you’re getting only your horses cremains. Once the cremation is complete, we place the cremains in your urn of choice and return them to you. Your horse's cremains can either be picked up at our facility or shipped directly to you.

Communal Equine Cremation

We also provide communal cremations for those who are looking to save money, and don’t need their horse’s cremains returned to them. After the communal cremation process, your horses’ cremains cannot be separated from other pets. After the cremation process, all companion pets' cremains are reverently spread on our family farm.

When you choose Metro Animal Services, you can be comforted in knowing your beloved horse will be handled with dignity, care and compassion. Please contact us if you have any questions.
