Pet Cremation Services

Deciding what to do with a beloved pet after their passing is a very personal decision. In San Diego, most owners elect for pet cremation, although some elect to bury their pet at home where permitted by law.

Pet parents may make their own arrangements, or we may assist you by making the arrangements for you with a pet crematorium that is respectful, trustworthy and personalized.

And if your pet has passed at home naturally, we can come to your home and assist with the aftercare option of your choice.


  • Communal pet cremation: Ashes are not returned to the owner and are respectfully scattered at sea. Prices begin at $175 (weight dependent).
  • Individual pet cremation: Your pet’s own ashes will be in a cedar, acacia, or biodegradable urn, along with a clay paw print and a fur clipping. In San Diego and South Riverside Counties, we proudly offer water cremation. Our in-house water cremation services are environmentally friendly and return 20% more to families, compared to traditional fire cremation. We offer traditional fire cremation in San Diego upon request with a partner cremation facility. We will care for your pet with honor, dignity, and compassion. Prices begin at $275 (weight dependent).
  • Biodegradable urns are intended to be buried and do not come with a nameplate.
  • Cedar or acacia urns are encouraged for display.
  • Scatter Tubes are also available.
  • Individual pet cremation with home hand delivery: We understand that sometimes it can be too difficult to pick up your beloved pet’s remains. We can provide a home hand delivery for an additional $100.
  • Deceased pet pick up: starting at $75, travel fees may apply.
  • Urn options included with Individual Cremation (left to right: Acacia, Biodegradable Natural, Biodegradable Floral, Cedar):

  • Upgrade urn option: Natural wood photo urn — Medium (under 35 pounds) $70.04 or Large (36+ pounds) $102.36

*Disclaimer: Sometimes it is not possible, despite the aftercare company’s best efforts, to acquire a lock of fur. In those rare instances the aftercare company will notify the family of this prior to receiving the cremains of their loved ones.

Sometimes the decisions are too powerful for you to make and we understand your grief. Allow us to help you and put your mind at ease when moving forward with pet cremation. Please contact us for more information.
