Private/Individual Cremation Services in TX

Private Cremations at Pets and Friends are individual cremation services where your beloved pet family is cremated alone. This ensures that your furbaby is returned to you with no cross-contamination from other animals. With our private cremation packages, your darling will be returned to you in an engravable (optional) handmade cedar urn upon request. You will also receive a Certificate of Cremation, a Rainbow Bridge Certificate, and a lock of your beloved’s fur if possible.

We welcome you to bring your beloved pets directly to Pets and Friends, where we offer private visitation areas where you are able to say a peaceful goodbye and view the cremation if you desire. You may even schedule a same-day service appointment to take your furbabies home with you after the cremation. Home retrieval is also available for a modest fee for your convenience should you not have the means or ability to get to our office. For your ease, we also work with many veterinarians throughout East Texas and will pick up and return your darlings directly to your clinic should you desire.

Our office is open to the public Monday-Friday, 8 AM to 5 PM, so please feel free to come by and view our many options for memorialization. You can reach us at (903) 526-7400. In addition to hundreds of specialty urns for you to choose from, we also offer paw prints or nose prints on either ink or clay. We love being able to honor your beloved furry family members in a way that reflects their and your personality.

Private/Individual Cremation includes:

  • Remains Placed in One of Our Beautifully Carved Wooden Handmade Cedar Urns.
  • A Personalized Cremation Certificate.
  • A Personalized Memorial of “the Rainbow Bridge” Poem.
  • A Lock of Your Pet’s Hair, if Possible.

Pets picked up and returned to your home will incur a modest transportation fee.

Memorial Cremation (Cremains not returned)

Memorial Cremation, also known as group cremation, is a process where your beloved friend is cremated with other pets in a loving and dignified manner. Those communal cremains are then spread in the country so they may rest in the beauty of nature.

We can pick up your pet from your veterinary clinic or home for a fee, or you may bring your pet directly to Pets and Friends for memorial cremation.
