In partnership with the staff of iBarn, we are happy to provide these services and aftercare options for families considering end-of-life plans for their companion. Making decisions that are in the best care for your pet are very difficult – we’re here to help.
Options for Private Cremation
In a private cremation, the body of only one pet is placed in the cremation chamber apart from other pets. After your pet is cremated, the crematory will return your pet’s cremated remains (ashes) to you. Only the ashes of your pet are involved in this type of cremation.
We have two standard options for how your pet’s remains are returned to you (please know that, if you would like a different urn, we do have options that you may consider).
As you remember your pet, we can offer a collection that includes an engraved paw print, a biodegradable urn, and a seedling that you can plant either indoors or outside. The seedling is a beautiful Carolina Pine that is locally-sourced and will provide a new an long-lasting memory of your companion.
This collection includes a wooden urn engraved with your pet’s name and a paw print, also engraved. This urn holds your pet’s remains and will provide a permanent memorial to the life of your companion.
With communal pet cremation, the bodies of several pets are placed in the cremation chamber and cremated at the same time. Ashes are not returned to the owner if this method is chosen, but are spread together in the Pamlico River (east of Raleigh) once a month.
