Aftercare

All aftercare fees are in addition to the home service. If you have already made plans for aftercare we are able to leave your pet with you after the service. 

We do all of our own aftercare services - no third parties involved means your pet will never leave our care. 

With respect for our climate, we utilize water based aquamation instead of traditional fire cremation. Compared to fire cremation, aquamation uses 85% less energy, has 1/10th the carbon footprint, and because it is a gentler process, you will typically have 20% more ash returned. 

Communal aftercare

With communal aftercare, ashes are not returned. Ashes are respectfully scattered at a family farm in view of Lake Elsinore. 

0-20 lbs ..... $100

21-40 ......... $125

41-80 ......... $150

81-120 ....... $200

121-160 ..... $275

Private aftercare

With private aftercare, your pet is aquamated in their own compartment so all ashes returned are your pet's only.
