Cremation and Burial Services

Private Cremation
San Diego Pet Memorial Park provides private cremation. Private cremation is when there is only one pet in the cremation chamber during the cremation process. In a private cremation, a single pet cremation allows you to say a personal goodbye and be a part of the placement of your pet in the crematory. Your beloved pet is groomed before you arrive allowing time to pay your respects at our beautiful chapel and proceed to the cremation area where you can view the placement of your pet in the crematory. Please call 858-909-0009 to make your arrangements.

  • All Private cremations will be individual.
  • Fees for pet cremation services are based on the weight of the animal.
  • All Private cremations may receive a cremation certificate, clay paw print and lock of hair if selected.
Individual Cremation
With great understanding and care, the pet is cremated in an individual compartment to assure the return of your pet’s Cremains. All pets are carefully documented with an invoice number, name and location, and then gently placed in the crematory by the cremationist.
  • All Individual cremations will be kept separated.
  • Fees for pet cremation services are based on the weight of the animal.
  • All Individual cremations may receive a cremation certificate, clay paw print and lock of hair if selected.

Cremation timeline will vary depending upon delivery of the pet to the San Diego Pet Memorial Park. Average timeline once the pet is on site is between 3 to 5 days. A personalized urn or special arrangements may add extra days for the pet to be ready to return home.  Please call 858-909-0009 to make arrangements.

Communal Cremation

Communal cremations are also referred as Group cremations. This service is offered only to veterinary clinics and was introduced as a humane alternative to current disposal methods such as rendering and mass burials. Cremations are done at our facility and the ashes are scattered at sea. Please ask your veterinarian about this service.

  • All Communal cremations will be not be kept separated.
  • Fees for pet cremation services are based on the weight of the animal.
  • All Communal cremations will not receive a cremation certificate, clay paw print and lock of hair if selected.

    Burial Services

Burial at San Diego Pet Memorial Park is a moving experience for pet parents and is especially comforting to those whose culture does not embrace cremation.  Pets are placed in a casket and a viewing is scheduled at our Pet Chapel followed by a burial service, if desired.  Some pet parents want complete privacy with family only and other families hire caterers and have their church pastor officiate at the event.  Some families wish to have programs designed and even a white dove release.  Our staff is ready to assist in all burial planning. Please call 858-909-0009 to make arrangements.

Internment

Internment Service refers to the placement of ashes in our memorial park. Cremains are placed in an urn of your choice and placed in a family plot, a niche wall, columbarium, cremation garden or in another designated site within our memorial park. Please call 858-909-0009 to make arrangements.
