Communal cremation is offered at an affordable price with no return of cremains. Because we have the benefit of having a beautiful pet cemetery, we can offer two options. We can either scatter the cremains in our serene scattering garden or we can bury the cremains with other pets in a burial container in the St. Francis of Assisi Section of our cemetery. A memorial marker identifies all animals buried in this special place.
