Homeward Bound Pet Crematorium
My cat, an everyday companion for 13 years, was attacked by a dog recently, and suffered major internal injuries. It broke my heart, but I made the decision to have him euthanized, after the doctor gave him a very small chance of surviving the surgery. And the last thing I wanted was to see him suffer. I contacted Homeward Bound, and made arrangements to have my cat cremated. They were very professional, and went above and beyond what you would expect them to do....they picked up my cat's remains at the clinic, did the cremation, then returned the ashes back to the clinic, where my Granddaughter worked. All in the space of 3 days, and at a very resonable price. About a week later, I got a Sympathy Card from them, and their employees had all signed it. This meant alot to me, and I would very highly recommend Homeward Bound to anybody looking for such a service. Great job by them!!
Tips & Advices
A scatter garden is a dedicated plot of land that is used for scattering remains after cremation has taken place. Many pet scatter gardens allow you to memorialize your pet by adding your pet's name to a marker.
Many pet cemeteries offer memorial services, and some offer in-house chapels that can be used as a venue for these events. Pet cemeteries sometimes offer pet funeral directors on staff to help you coordinate memorial services. You many also plan memorial services for your pet by working with a pet funeral home.
Most pet cemeteries require that pets be buried in a casket, and these facilities often offer a wide variety of caskets for sale. A pet casket  can cost anywhere from $50 for a basic model to more than $3,000 for one that is top of the line.
If a pet dies while at the veterinarian, you have the option of letting your vet handle the disposition of your pet's remains. If you'd prefer to have your pet buried or cremated at the facility of your choice, let your veterinarian know.. You can then contact the facility to have them pick up your pet's body. Your vet may be able to suggest a pet cemetery or crematory if you need a recommendation.
If a pet dies at home, it's important to make swift arrangements to handle the remains, since your pet's body will immediately begin to decompose. You don't have to handle the body yourself. Many pet cemeteries and crematories offer 24/7 removal services for tackling this task.
