One of the most difficult decisions facing any pet owner is determining when it is time to say goodbye. For many pet owners, their pets are part of the family, constant devoted companions, and faithful friends. We understand that it’s not easy to make the decision to humanely euthanize your pet and we are here for you.  We offer affordable humane euthanasia services to the public by well trained, state certified, loving staff.  We also offer several options for your beloved pet including group cremation and private cremation.  

Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate requests to be with your animal during the procedure.  If you wish to be with your pet during euthanasia, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with your private-practice veterinarian when the time comes.  We also understand that the costs for euthanasia and cremation at your private veterinarian can be prohibitive, and for this reason, we offer pet owners affordable alternatives. 

We encourage you to bring your pet’s favorite blanket, or another comfort from home, to provide extra peace and reassurance during their passing.
