You may decide on Aquamation for your pet but also wish to choose a final resting place; properties packages include: Aquamation, urn, property, grave-side service, interment and marker.
Aquamation is a gentle, eco-friendly option that is water-based – the first of its kind for pets in Pennsylvania. We use a combination of water flow, temperature and alkalinity to accelerate nature’s process. It releases no greenhouse gases and has only 10 percent of the carbon footprint with no mercury emissions into the atmosphere. This process is 95 percent water and 5 percent alkali (the chemical opposite of an acid). We then use the remaining solution to fertilize the grounds of our pet cemetery and common gardens.
Pets are aquamated in their own compartment in the Aquamation unit. Each pet receives a unique metal tag number that follows the pet through the entire process and time in our care. At the conclusion of this process, we will either return the aquamated remains to the veterinarian or the family to make further arrangements. Should you wish to choose a final resting place after Aquamation, property packages and a scattering garden are available.
