Our Cremation Process
One thing that establishes our high standards is certainly our facility. You won't find another like it anywhere nearby.
Another item toward the top of our high standards list is the quality of the equipment we insist upon. Utilizing the latest and most efficient cremators available, we can maintain extremely high standards of operation - as well as high standards for efficiency and minimized emissions. In fact, we’re so confident in our equipment and our processes, we're very comfortable to welcome people right to our facility.
One of the common questions people have with cremation is this: "How do I know that I'm getting my pet’s ashes back?" We are the only crematory in the Quad Cities region area utilizing a barcode tracking system to monitor every step of the process, assuring us - and you - that this is never a concern.
And, because people have different preferences, we offer three different pet cremation options:
SEMI-PRIVATE CREMATION. In this process, multiple pet’s bodies are cremated at the same time, however they are kept completely separate from one another. This allows us to return the ashes of each pet to their rightful owner. This process is the most affordable option to receive your own pet's ashes back. Ashes are returned within a week. This is our most requested service option.
COMMUNAL CREMATION. In this process, bodies of several pets are cremated at the same time. Because there is no way to separate the ashes of one pet from another in this particular process, there are two important distinctions to note with Common Cremation: 1) not every aspect of our barcode tracking service can be employed in the Common Cremation process; and 2) the ashes from Common Cremation are not available to be returned. This is the most affordable option for pet cremation.
PRIVATE CREMATION. With Private Cremation, your pet's body is the only one in the cremation chamber throughout the entire cremation process. While this results in a little higher cost than the other options, it is the only option that is completely private. Your Pet's ashes are returned to you within 72 hours in this option.
Regardless of which cremation option you select, you are always welcome to utilize our exclusive online Pet Memories feature of our website. Upload a few of your favorite photos, share a few favorite stories, then click the "Share" link to upload to your social media sites. There's no additional charge for this service with us -- because we think pets are part of the family, too.
