For many years the Humane Society has made available to the community a pet cremation service. Lately we have had people tell us how thankful they were for this service and that we should do more to let the community know about the services we provide.
We understand that loosing a pet is hard and that many times the remains and what to do with them after the pet passes is difficult. We have the ability to help you with your needs.
– If you want to use our service make sure to let your veterinarian know and call us before you take your pet to the veterinarian. We will make arrangements with you for payment and for pick-up service from your veterinarians office.
We can cremate your pet individually and return your pet’s remains to you. We offer a variety of ways to memorialize your loving pet. This service starts at $120 and is dependent on the weight of the pet and memorial container you choose.
If you simply need a way to safely and legally dispose of your pet without having the remains returned to you we can provide that service as well. The fee for this starts at $65 and is also dependent on the weight of your pet.
If at any time you have questions about this service we provide, please feel free to call the shelter and our staff will gladly help you.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to the Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water, sunshine and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance.
His bright eyes are intent, his eager body quivers.
Suddenly he begins to run for the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.
The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your beloved pet, so long gone from your life, but never absent from your heart. Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together.
