Cremation is a clean and environmentally safe process. Our private cremation is a true individual cremation, as with human cremation no other pets are present in the retort. Each pet at Horizon Pet Cremation is taken from beginning to end through the entire process. This insures their privacy and dignity during this time. An average size pets takes about 1 to 2 hours. After each cremation all equipment is thoroughly vacuumed and cleaned to insure that the next beloved pets remains do not mix with any previous pet.
We invite pet owners to participate in any part of the cremation process that they feel comfortable with. (Fee may apply)
