But it’s important to ask a few questions of your pet cremator so that you know exactly what to expect from the service you’re paying for.
Here are five questions to bear in mind when choosing a pet cremation company.
Will My Pet be Cremated On Their Own?
Group Vs. Individual Pet Cremation
Most pet cremation companies will offer a choice of group or individual pet cremations, which means your pet will either be cremated on their own or as a group.
While individual pet cremations may cost a little more, they guarantee privacy at a time when it’s most needed.
At Pet Haven Animal Cremation, we ONLY perform individual cremations to ensure that the ashes you receive are from your pet and only your pet. As a family owned and operated business, we understand that pets are family members and will always be treated with the utmost respect while in our care.
How Long Does Pet Cremation Take?
You don’t want to be waiting weeks to receive your pet’s cremains once the cremation has been done.
As alot of pet cremation companies are run differently, this can differ from business to business. We always recommend ensuring you are 100% understanding and comfortable with the process and arrangements made.
At Pet Haven, you will receive a call within a matter of days when your pets ashes are ready to collect or to arrange drop-off back to you.
We offer packages that include the cremation of your pet as well as urns/keepsakes and a death certificate or even a lock of their fur or a paw print depending on your request.
We also offer ModUrn which is a secure app to save photos, videos, notes and registration information that can be shared with family and friends.
How Will You Identify My Pet’s Cremains?
If you choose individual cremation, your pet’s cremains should be easily identified.
However, you may be worried that in a group cremation your pet’s cremains could be hard to identify, it’s important to ask your cremation company how they keep your pet separate from others.
