Deciding what to do with a beloved pet after their passing is a very personal decision. There are different options for pet cremation in San Diego.
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.
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 $150 (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. Our San Diego Cremation Services are environmentally friendly and the highest quality available. Our water-based pet cremation service, also known as aquamation, returns 20% more ash compared to traditional cremation. We will care for your pet with honor, dignity, and compassion.
- Prices begin at $250 (weight dependent).
- Biodegradable urns are intended to be buried and do not come with a nameplate. Cedar or bamboo urns are encouraged for display.
- 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 $50.
*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.
