When a Pet Dies
Where do you begin when your treasured pet passes away? Find the information below.
If your pet passes away at home
If your pet passes away at home, call us to set up an appointment for you to bring your pet into our beautiful facility. Regular office hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Special arrangements may be made for after-hours, weekends, and holidays (additional fees apply).
Call to arrange a time for us to come to your home and pick up your pet. This is referred to as a "home pick-up" or "removal" (additional fees apply).
Contact us at (435) 523-4800.
If your pet passes away at a vet clinic
If your pet passes away at a vet clinic, notify your veterinarian that you wish to have The Pet Cremation Center of Southern Utah care for your pet. Many local veterinarians have contracts with wholesale cremation providers in Las Vegas or other out-of-town locations. You have the right to make final arrangements for your pet with any provider of your choice.
Once your pet is under our care
The loss of a pet is emotional and personal, much like losing a human family member. We therefore recommend that you come into our office to make final arrangements with one of our caring funeral professionals. During this appointment, you will sign a cremation authorization form, choose a cremation option, select an urn, and chose other keepsake items, including clay paw prints, jewelry, etc. If desired, we will also discuss options for a video tribute, memorial tribute (similar to an obituary), and permanent memorialization items, such as a grave marker.
