In San Diego County, most owners elect to have their beloved dog or cat cremated, although some elect to have their beloved companion buried at home where permitted by law. We can assist you with all aftercare arrangements, even if we do not perform the euthanasia.

What To Expect From Our San Diego Pet Memorial Services

We offer an aftercare service when your beloved pets die naturally at home in San Diego, CA. During this difficult time, we can come to your home and assist with the after care option of your choice.

Biodegradable pet urns are specifically designed for burial and do not come with a nameplate. Cedar or acacia urns are encouraged for display. Scatter tubes are also available. Your pet’s ashes will be returned to you in one of our urns, along with a fur clipping and clay paw print, so you can process your grief, celebrate the life of your pet, and never lose any memories.

Your pet will be prepared for viewing, wrapped in a cozy blanket with compassion, and adorned with fresh flowers. At the end of the hour, you and your beloved pet will be guided into our cremation warehouse, where you can place the remains into the aquamation machine if you choose. You can also have one of our staff members do this if you prefer.

We offer private viewings for pets in our peaceful and serene Escondido cremation office.


*Disclaimer: Sometimes, it is impossible, despite our best efforts, to acquire a lock of fur. In those rare instances, we will notify your family of this prior to receiving the remains of their pet.
