In San Diego and many cities in California, most owners elect to cremate their beloved pets, although some elect to bury their beloved companion at home where permitted by law. We can assist you with cremation arrangements, even if we do not perform the euthanasia.

During this difficult time in the life of your family, pet parents may make their arrangements, or we can assist you. We can make the arrangements for you with a pet crematorium that is respectful, trustworthy, and personalized.

What to Expect From Our San Diego Pet Cremation Services

Our facility utilizes water cremation, also known as aquamation, a gentle water-based process that allows us to offer both Individual and Communal cremation.

Individual Cremation (Aquamation)

If you choose Individual pet cremation, your pet’s ashes will be returned to you in one of our urns, along with a fur clipping and clay paws print so you can process your grief, celebrate the life of your pet, and never lose any memories. Our employees will care for your beloved companion throughout the process with dignity, respect, and compassion. 

Communal Cremation

If families prefer Communal cremation, we will cremate your beloved pets, and their ashes will be respectfully spread at sea by our partner, Oceans of Love. Oceans of Love is a company that has helped us lay animals’ ashes at sea in a way full of dignity, love, and care, and it’s safe for the environment.Green-striped siamese cat

Traditional Flame-Based Cremation

Suppose you prefer the traditional fire cremation service for your pets. In that case, we can make the arrangements for you with a partner pet cremation company that provides these services with respect, peace, dignity, and compassion in a reliable and personalized way.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I Bury or Cremate My Pet?

When considering burying or cremating an animal or other pet water cremation services after euthanasia, we encourage thinking and discussing the following with your family:

  • Am I willing and able to dig a hole 6 feet deep for my beloved pet?
  • Is this location suitable for my pet’s final resting place?
  • If I move, will I let my beloved pet stay in this resting place?

If the answer to these questions is “no,” we encourage you to cremate your pet.

How Much Does It Cost to Cremate a Dog?

The cost to cremate animals will depend on their weight. Our in-house, individual private aquamation service starts at $275. Communal pet aquamation, where ashes are not returned to the owner and are scattered at sea with care by Oceans of Love, begins at $175.

Where Can I Bury My Pet In San Diego County?

While there are no state laws in California that require you to dispose of deceased animal companions with care and in a humane manner, there are specific ordinances regarding burials. Please, ensure that you understand any legal restrictions. We also provide pet memorial services in San Diego County including biodegradable urns that can be displayed as a tribute to your beloved pet.
