San Diego Pet Cremation

In San Diego, most owners elect for pet cremation, although some elect to bury their pet at home where permitted by law.

For cremation, pet parents may make their own arrangements, or we can assist you. We can make the arrangements for you with a pet crematorium that is respectful, trustworthy, and personalized.

Sometimes a pet will pass at home naturally. In these cases, we can come to your San Diego home and assist with the aftercare option of your choice.

Paws into Grace is a member of the International Association of Pet Cemeteries and Crematories, which means we adhere to a strict code of ethics and high standards of quality and service for pet cremation.

San Diego Pet After Care Options

  • 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 an urn, along with a clay paw print and a fur clipping. We proudly offer fire and water cremation. Our in-house water cremation service, also known as aquamation, is environmentally friendly and returns 20% more to families, compared to traditional fire cremation. 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 $75.
  • Deceased pet pick up starts at $75.

Standard urn options include (from left to right): acacia, natural biodegradable, floral biodegradable, and cedar

*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.
