Final Disposition of Cremains
Scattering: Cremains can be scattered in a place that was special for the pet or the familiy. Scattering is also available at the Pines. Cremation is simply the hastening of natural processes by a clean, sanitary and entirely modern method, which is quickly effected by a clean, intense, flame that returns the body to its original elements. All that remain are the calcified bone fragments that are called "cremains".
Inurnment: There is wide variety of urns available from a simple, modestly priced container to deluxe, engraved bronze urn. The urn may be kept at home along with the pet's other mementos or can be formally interred. Please browse our "Urns & Caskets" for the proper urn for your needs.
Columbarium: The Pines features a Carillon Bell Tower with a columbarium at it base. The granite walls contain above ground niches for cremains. The niches vary in size to accommodate one pet or several. A special area is set aside for cats only. A bronze nameplate is placed on the granite shutter to identify the niche. The Carillon provides a very peaceful setting for you and your family to pause and reflect on happy memories.
A crematory is located on the cemetery grounds, and all cremations are performed by properly trained personnel. When cremation is completed, each pet's cremains are carefully gathered and placed into labeled containers. One of the reasons that cremation has grown in popularity is that many options exist for the disposition of the cremated remains. Please view our options for final disposition of your pet's cremains.
Here at the Pines we do individual cremations only and return all cremains to the owner within 24-48 hours after the cremation process is complete. We assure you that your pet's remains will be cared for with dignity by a dedicated staff of pet lovers who understands your special bond with your pet. Special care is taken to ensure that each pet receives the individual care specified by the pet's family. Options for final disposition of the cremains include placement in an urn, interment at the Pines or your home, scattering in the Chapel Gardens at the Pines or some other place of importance to you and your pet.
SPECIAL CARE IS TAKEN TO SEE THAT EACH PET RECEIVES THE INDIVIDUAL CARE AS SPECIFIED BY THE PET'S FAMILY. IT IS REQUIRED THAT ARRANGEMENTS FOR CREMATION BE MADE DIRECTLY WITH THE PINES.
