All of our state-of-the-art crematory units are specifically designed for the cremation of animals. Take comfort in knowing that all aspects of the cremation will be performed in a dignified and professional manner.
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. Your pet’s cremated remains will be returned in your selected urn, along with a certificate of cremation, authenticating that your pet was cremated at Metro Animal Service.
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. Our Viewing & Visitation is a time for gathering together in ceremony to share a meaningful goodbye - to grieve, to celebrate and to remember a faithful companion. Whether your wish is for a quiet, reflective memorial or a joyful tribute, we will help you make these arrangements in a warm and supportive environment. There is an additional fee for this service. This service is available by appointment only. Please call our office for pricing and scheduling.
When you choose an 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. After the process, your pet’s cremated remains will be returned in your selected urn, along with a certificate of cremation, authenticating that your pet was cremated at Metro Animal Services.
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. After the cremation process, your companion pet's cremains are reverently spread on our family farm.
Please contact your local Chicagoland veterinarian, for specific pricing on our Private, Individual, and Communal Cremation services. For Private cremations with Viewing, please contact us directly for pricing and scheduling.
