Cremation Services

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.

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.
