When your furry family friend passes away, we may be able to help. At Erlewein Mortuary & Crematory, we offer PRIVATE PET CREMATIONS, starting at $175, depending on the weight of the animal. If you are needing a more economical cremation for your pet, many veterinarian offices offer Communal Pet Cremations at a lower price.
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 a cloth bag. We can also order an urn of your choice for your beloved pet. Our private pet cremations include a clay paw print, whenever possible.
In an Individual Cremation, your pet shares space in the cremation chamber with other pets. Each pet has a unique identification tag in the chamber, ensuring you receive only your pet’s cremated remains.
In a Communal Cremation, your pet is cremated along with a number of other pets, and the cremated remains are not separated. No cremated remains are returned to you. It is common practice for veterinarian's offices to provide Communal Cremations.
