Home Visit and Euthanasia

Our veterinarian will visit your home to help provide a peaceful and gentle goodbye for your pet. A relaxing, pain-relieving sedative will be given, followed by medication that helps your pet pass away. We will make a free paw print in clay if you wish. You may handle your pet’s body care arrangements on your own or choose one of the following cremation options. Additional travel charges may apply. See MAP for details. Request a Visit

Separated or Individual Cremation,
Your Pet’s Ashes Returned

Our veterinarian will transport your pet after the visit to be cremated and their ashes will be returned to you. You can choose separated cremation in which your pet is separated by space from other pets in the same cremation chamber or individual cremation in which your pet is the only pet in the cremation chamber. In either case, only your pet’s ashes are returned to you. They are placed in a hand-crafted wood urn with a personalized cremation certificate. The urn will be available for pickup at your local veterinary clinic or our Oakdale office. We can also hand-deliver to your home for an additional $40.

“There has been a big void in the process of dying which existed until your organization came along in 2010. I have gone through the passing of other companions in my life and this experience was the most beautiful way of leaving the earth possible. No human or companion deserves to live with pain and die a slow death, every creature deserves to pass with grace and dignity.” – Lisa R
