Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between private and communal cremation?

With semi-private cremation, sometimes referred to as communal cremation, your pet is placed in the cremation chamber with other pets, and may or may not be kept separate. With private cremation, only your pet is in the cremation chamber. At Fur-Ever Friends, we offer only private cremation.

What should I expect when I call?

On the initial call to Fur-Ever Friends, we will answer all of your questions and fully explain our cremation and memorialization options. We will obtain basic information about you and your pet, including your contact information and location of your pet.

If you determine on that call that you would like to use our services, we will email you an authorization form. If you have not determined the type of services you prefer, we will still make immediate arrangements to bring your pet into our care and follow-up with you via phone or in our office – whichever you prefer – at a time that is convenient for you.

Do you provide euthanasia services?

Euthanasia ("putting a pet to sleep") must be performed by a licensed veterinarian, or in some cases a licensed vet tech under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian. As such, we do not provide euthanasia services.

If you believe you are in need of this service, it is best to contact the veterinarian who typically provides medical care for your pet.

If you do not have an existing relationship with a veterinarian, any clinic will be able to refer you to a veterinarian who can assist you.

In addition, there are several in-home providers who will come to your home. This is particularly helpful if transporting your pet to an office is not possible.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept cash, check, or all major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover). We do not accept Care Credit.
