Pet Loss

Eleanor Roosevelt got it right when she said, “Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends leave footprints on your heart." And for many people, those footprints are left behind by their beloved pets.

At Cotter Funeral Homes and Crematory, we agree that pets are an important part of the family. And when we lose them, the loss is painful and the grieving process very real. We now offer pet care services to help you memorialize your special companion.

Pet Cremation Options

  • Individual cremation. Your pet is the only pet in the chamber, and the remains are returned.
  • Partitioned Cremation. Your pet is cremated with several other pets in a compartmentalized tray that keeps the remains separate. The remains are returned to you.
  • Group Cremation. Your pet is cremated with other pets with no division. Due to the nature of this process, the remains cannot be returned, but are instead scattered in a nature preserve.

Based on your family’s wishes, you are able to watch/attend the cremation in our comfortable lounge when you choose individual cremation.

Pet Memorialization

We offer a full selection of pet caskets, urns, custom jewelry and other personalization options and are happy to guide you in the selection process, as well with the placement of your pet’s remains.

If burial is your preference, we offer caskets from simple corrugated cardboard to fully sealed caskets that prevent the intrusion of exterior elements. You may bury on your own private property, or we can refer you to local pet cemeteries.

As Helen Keller noted, “What we have enjoyed, we can never lose ... all that we love deeply becomes a part of us.”

We would be honored to share your pet’s life, and honor their life, with you. For more information, please contact us.
