Euthanasia & Pet Memorial

During this difficult time we aim to make things as comfortable for you and your beloved pet as possible. We know this is the hardest decision you'll have to make for your pet so we want you to feel that it's what is best for your pet - don't let anyone force you into a decision you're not ready for.

If you elect euthanasia, you will talk with the doctor beforehand. They will explain what will happen and answer any questions you may have. Afterward, we will sedate your pet to ensure they are calm and relaxed before the euthanasia is performed.

You may be present through sedation or the entire process, but this is not required.

Please don't hesitate to ask us any questions about what's going to happen during the procedure. We can discuss aftercare beforehand or you may call back later with instructions.

We offer our clients private cremation through Forever Friends. If you would like ashes back they will also collect a fur sample and make one clay pawprint at no additional charge. They offer a variety of memorial items and everything will be delivered directly to your home. Services through Rutherford Funeral Home and Schoedinger Pet Services are also available if you would like to make arrangements with them. If you have another crematory you prefer just let us know and we can assist you.

Unfortunately, we are no longer able to offer home euthanasia, but there are other companies in the area that perform this service. Please let us know if you need help locating one.
