There are a number of wonderful ways to memorialize your beloved pet. Cremation can be a lovely way to honor and celebrate their lives.


Dealing with the end of a pet’s life is never easy. We want to make the process less difficult for you by offering cremation services as a way to memorialize and honor the life of your beloved pet.

Why should I consider cremation for my pet?

Cremation can be a wonderful and flexible way to celebrate and memorialize the life of an animal. Cremated remains can be buried, kept in an indoor or outdoor urn, or commemorated in jewelry or keepsake items.

When should I consider cremation for my pet?

We all wish our pets could live forever, but unfortunately there comes a time where we have to say goodbye. Please consult with us as close to end of the pet's life as possible, so we can determine the most humane and appropriate end of life care.

What if I’d like to do this at my home?

We are only able to provide euthanasia services here at our hospital with our team, however, we absolutely understand if you would like to have your pet at home for this final act of love. If you are interested in learning more about In-Home Euthanasia or Hospice care for your furbaby we would recommend you call the wonderful team at Lap Of Love at (317) 975-1950 to discuss your needs.

What happens afterward?

After your pet has passed we can provide cremation or aquamation services. You have the option of a private or communal cremation for your fur baby. Should you choose a communal cremation, your pet’s ashes are laid to rest around a private garden on the grounds of Pet Rest in Ossian, Indiana. Each garden is marked with an annual marker, so you can visit the grounds where your pet rests if you like. We encourage you to visit their website to take a tour of their gardens if you wish. We can also arrange for the individual cremation of your pet at Pet Rest. Your pet’s ashes will be returned in a Rosewood urn, and you have the option of a clay paw print, or a clay nose print as well. To help achieve closure with the loss of your beloved pet, we will return your pet to you within 3-7 business days.
