We believe that pets are part of the family, too, and we believe that they deserve the best possible care when they must leave us. This is why we’ve established Quad Cities Pet Cremation.

A welcoming and comfortable place is important when you’re dealing with these difficult circumstances, so we started with a building that provides easy access and then added some comfortable surroundings.

NOTE: We ask that you call ahead to schedule an appointment to ensure prompt assistance. (We may be away from the cremation center, assisting families at the vet clinics.)

Conveniently located from any direction, our facility offers ease of access on River Drive between Bettendorf and Interstate 80.

Facility Tour

Our facility is unique and thoughtfully designed for this special service. You won’t find anything comparable anywhere in the entire region.

We’re ADA-friendly here: all one level, including an ADA-friendly restroom. The dignity in our process begins with complete privacy. Vehicles can enter into our facility and the garage door is then closed to maintain every dignity and proper decorum for your pet as we carefully bring him or her into our care.

Our exclusive barcode tracking system is employed as your pet’s body is brought into our care and then charts each step until you’ve received your pet’s ashes.

The office area and welcome center provides a comfortable space to gather necessary information and assist you with paperwork.
