Pet Services

Because we are pet lovers ourselves, we understand the deep grief that many suffer from the loss of a beloved pet. For this reason, we offer you immediate response and dignified pet cremation services and other grief support materials to make this major life passage one of meaning and significance.

Over the years, your faithful companion has become an important member of your family, with their unique personality and unconditional love. When facing the loss of a pet, a family typically experiences the same sense of loss as it would for other members of the family.

At R.M. Williams Funeral Service, we treat pets just like any other family member. We are here to provide your cherished companion the respect and dignity they deserve in their final farewell. We have years of professional experience and skill to help you in your time of bereavement.

FAQs Regarding Pet Cremation

It is important to know the different options available when choosing cremation for your pet. Communal, partitioned and independent / private are the most common types of pet cremation available.

Communal: Pets are cremated at the same time along with other pets. Cremated remains are not returned to the family. (This is what a majority of Veterinarians offer.)

Private, Single Pet: Because we are your local funeral home, we can guarantee that your pet will be treated with dignity and respect. You can be confident that in our private pet cremation facilities, your pet alone is placed in the cremation chamber. Upon completion of the cremation, your pet's cremains are removed from the chamber, and returned to you. We will care for your beloved companion with the same reverence as we would treat any other member of your family. (This is the process we offer.)

***Pet Cremations and human cremations are performed using two completely different/separate machines.

***If desired, we can also perform communal pet cremations with no return of ashes.   

Caring for your beloved pet goes beyond sharing happy days, and warm nights. It means taking the time to tend to their final needs, and honoring their memory.
