One of Us Pet funeral Services
Animals are wonderfull agreeable friends. They ask so little of us, and give so musch love in return. When it comes time for you to let go of your animal companion, making the decisions on how to care for their physical remains cab be heart-wrenching
Many families have the option of bury their small family pet in their back yard. When this is your choice, we suggest that you create a memorial celebration of their, and of your love, together with children, neighbors, friends; light a candle,say a prayer, or tell fsvorite stories of your pet. Make it an occasion to remember.
If that isn't an option for you, or you choose to do things differently, we're here to help. We have a selection of cremation option for you to choose from, and a variety of beautiful keepsake jewelry and urns. Our goal is to help you care for your animal companions in the same loving way as you care for the other members of your family
For many pet-parents, cremation is sensible option. We at One of Us do not endorse nor practice "community cremation". Each cremation is a private cremation. Your pets cremains are 100% your pets. 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. We provide a nice wooden urn as part of our standard service. However, we carry a nice selection of urns for those pet parents who would like more option to choose from.
