Pet Cremation

Cremation Services and Memorials to Remember Your Beloved Pet

yellow lab in the grassMany of us share an unconditional love and bond with our animal companions. For us, a pet is not “just a dog” or “just a cat”. Animals are an integral part of our lives and a beloved member of our families. They bring us happiness, joy and companionship that feels irreplaceable, so when we are faced with the loss of a beloved pet it is often a time of overwhelming grief and emotion.

Losing a pet can be one of the most difficult experiences of your life. As you come to terms with such a loss, you may be left wondering how to honor your faithful companion and cherish the memories left behind.

At the Humane Society of Pagosa Springs, we want every pet owner in our community to know that we are here for you to help you remember and honor your pet by providing cremation services and pet memorials. The cost of cremations, bricks and beads helps fund our animal shelter, giving you an opportunity to help other animals in need while honoring or saying farewell to your true friend and celebrating the life of your pet in a way that is meaningful.
