Pet Removal Following Euthanasia Service

Whether your pet passed away through compassionate euthanasia or naturally at home from age or illness, we’re here to help respectfully and compassionately handle your pet’s remains.

The vast majority of our clients choose to have Paws To Rest handle their pet’s remains, however you’re welcome to transport your pet after euthanasia to the cremation facility of your choosing.

If Paws To Rest handles your pet’s remains, our team will internally coordinate pickup to occur shortly after our Veterinarian has completed the euthanasia service. Payment for both services is generally handled in advance to make your Paws To Rest experience as stress free and comfortable as possible.

Once you have decided how you would like to handle your pet’s remains, your next step is to decide what type of cremation service you desire.

Cremation Options: Private vs. General

There are two types of cremation services available: private and general. A private cremation means that your pet will be cremated individually so that you can have their ashes returned to you in a scatter box or urn. General cremation means that your pet will be cremated along with other animals, and you will not be able to have your pet’s ashes returned to you.

If you choose the private cremation option through Paws To Rest, your pet’s ashes are normally available for pickup within seven days. Additionally, our team can help you choose a memorial keepsake or appropriately sized urn to hold your pet’s ashes. Please click here to view our online urn and memorial catalogue.

Whatever option you decide, simply let our Client Services Team know if you’re planning to use our removal and cremation services or if you prefer to make your own arrangements when scheduling your appointment. Also, please don’t feel rushed to make a decision on choosing an urn or memorial item, as we know these are difficult decisions to make. The only thing we need to know at the time of your appointment is if you desire a private or general cremation and if you want a clay paw print impression done, as these items are time sensitive.

We know that making these arrangements can be an overwhelming experience, so if there is anything we can help with or if you have additional questions, please don’t hesitate to call our team at 1-888-908-0448.
