Pet Cremation Services
Transportation for your pet is available from your home or veterinary hospital to our funeral home. Alternatively, you may prefer to bring your pet to the funeral home yourself. Whatever your preference, please contact us at 519-383-7121 to set a time to meet with us.
Private Family Goodbyes
Saying goodbye is never easy. At McCormack Funeral Home we offer our facility for the family of a pet to say their goodbye. Our home like environment is similar to your own home instead of a clinical environment. Because we feel this is so important, we encourage you to bring your family members and friends with you.
As a local, family-owned funeral home, we can assure you that your pet will be treated with dignity and respect. All cremations are serviced in individualized compartments in a facility for pet cremations exclusively. Upon completion of the cremation, your pet's cremated remains are removed from the chamber, and returned to you. We will care for your beloved companion with the same reverence as we would treat any other member of your family.
Family Witnessed Private Cremation
Some families request to be present and witness the cremation.
If this is important to you, please speak to us about scheduling a time to do so. At the crematory, you are welcome to be present at the time your pet’s body is being placed inside the crematory, the door closed and process started. The actual cremation inside is not viewed.
Pet Memorial Gatherings
As when any member of the family dies, it is important to take time to reflect and remember. This is something you may prefer to do with just a few members of your family or include a group of friends for a time to share memories.
The services you select are entirely up to you, and that’s why we work with you to create services that meet your needs and desires.
Whether at McCormack Funeral Home, your home or a nearby park, I will not only help you to create the arrangements that work best for you, but they will also be there to offer my support as you honour the life of your pet.
