A Ceremony of Caring

Cremation has become a very accepted and embraced alternative to burial when families are faced with the loss of any loved one, and pets are now included in this modern service.

Cal Pet is a family-owned and operated business and has been lending its support at this trying time for generations and continues to provide the care and assistance pet owners need in the respectful treatment of the remains of all household pets.

Why Cremation?

These days cremation is endorsed by many of our foremost thinkers and has the support and approval of an increasingly large number of people of all faiths and in all walks of life.

Simply put, cremation is the hastening of natural processes by a sanitary and entirely modern method. The body is returned to its original elements by a clean, intense flame. Cremation offers a much more elegant and sophisticated treatment of pets than the choices traditionally available.

After cremation, the calcified bone fragments of the remains, or ashes as they are commonly called, are carefully gathered and sealed in a container.

Pet owners can opt to scatter their pet’s ashes in a location that carries sentimental value to the family or they may also choose to save the ashes in an urn, placed in a discreet position within their home to serve as a reminder of their dearly loved friend.
