Why Choose Pet Cremations – Beam Funeral Service & Crematory

The loss of a pet is just as hard as the loss of a person because they are more than pets, but over the years they become members of the family. We love them even after they’re gone and when we see pictures of them, smiles return to our faces as we remember all of the memories we shared with them. Choosing pet cremation services from Beam Funeral Service & Crematory provides a way to honor the life of your pet, as well as a beautiful way to ensure their final resting place is with you.

Why Choose Pet Cremations

When your pet passes, burying or cremating them can sometimes be the last thing you think about. However, understanding your options and how to move forward is important in making such a difficult decision. Working with Beam Funeral Service & Crematory, there are several advantages to cremation over burial for your pet, including:

  • Timeliness – Going through your veterinarian can take time, sometimes up to two weeks, before getting back your pet’s remains. With Beam Funeral Service, we will have your pet’s remains back to you within 24 to 48 hours of your pet’s passing.
  • Affordability – Also, with choosing your veterinarian, it can be expensive. A Beam Funeral Service staff member will pick-up your pet, from your home or vet’s office, free of charge with reasonable pricing options for cremation.
  • Schedule an appointment – You don’t have to go through your veterinarian to reach Beam Funeral Service, but can call them directly to set up an appointment.
  • A Personalized Urn – After your pet has been cremated, you will be presented with your pet’s remains in a special, personalized urn, either picked out by your choosing or the funeral home, complete with a nice label and certification of cremation.

How the Procedure Happens

When you arrive at our funeral home, one of the staff members will greet you and place your pet in one of our cots. We’ll hand you a brochure, which details the procedure. We’ll assist you in filling out the certificate of cremation and then take your pet to our own crematories. Your pet will be cremated individually, and not cremated with other pets, within the week of its passing. You can choose whichever urn you like from our large selection, or we’ll pick one out for you. We’ll give you a call once your pet is ready for pick up and present it in the specialized urn, labeled and with the certification of cremation you filled out from before.
