Pet Cremation Services in Edinburg & Woodstock, VA

Animals are wonderfully agreeable friends. They ask so little of us and give so much love in return. When the time comes for you to let go of your animal companion, making the decisions on how to care for their physical remains can be heart-wrenching.

There are various ways to commemorate your fallen pet. It includes holding a pet funeral and choosing between a burial or pet cremation services. But, arranging these things can be difficult during these trying times when you and your family are grieving.

Private Cremation

A private cremation means your pet is placed in the cremation chamber alone. Upon completion of the cremation, your pet's cremated remains are removed from the chamber, and returned to you, in an urn of your choice.

Viewing Cremation

Many times family members want to be involved in the cremation of their pet. This is just like a private cremation, but your family is present during the cremation in a viewing room. This option is not available at all crematories. Please ask our staff for further information.

Individual Cremation

In this type of pet cremation, your pet shares space in the cremation chamber with other pets, but as each pet carries a unique identification tag into the chamber, you’re ensured of receiving only your pet’s cremated remains, in the urn of your choice.
