The PLPA is a segment of the International Cemetery, Cremation & Funeral Association, (ICCFA).  We could not honestly say that we are experts in companion animal aftercare without strictly adhering to the professional industry standards and ethics outlined by the PLPA.   We here at Sacred Paws Pet Crematory, LLC are professional experts in the companion animal aftercare and can proudly say we have always adhered to and promise to continue to adhere to the PLPA ethical standards of professionalism.  It has been an honor to provide aftercare for so many families companion animals over the last 10 years.  We here at Sacred Paws Pet Crematory, LLC understand the weight of what we do and are proud to have earned your trust in providing professional aftercare services for companion animals.

Pet cremation cost for partitioned services will vary based on the weight of each pet.  Partitioned services may require a slightly longer turn-around time.  If you choose to do a partitioned service we will have to wait for another family that is willing to share the unit / cost.  A Partitioned service is when your pet will share the unit with another family's pet; but, will be separated by a fire brick wall.  We will build a fire brick wall between the two pets giving your companion his or her Partitioned section of the cremation chamber.  Ashes are returned in an urn of your choosing.

A Private Cremation is the most costly because we will run the unit just for your pet, the price for this service has increased.  A Partitioned Cremation Service is less costly because you will share the cost of running the unit with another family.  A fire brick wall will be built inside the retort, (cremation chamber), to partition off your pet from others.  Both Private and Partitioned services will return your pet to you in an urn of your choosing.  The least costly Pet Cremation is a Communal Cremation Service.  With a Communal Cremation you will not get the ashes back.  Your pet will be processed with several others, co-mingling of the cremains will not allow us to return Partitioned pet cremains with any integrity.

 
 Private Service: Ashes Returned

A Private Service is when your companion / pet is the only pet in the retort / cremation unit.  A Private cremation service will return the cremated remains (ashes) in a black marble pattern, or white pearl plastic urn at no added cost or one of your choosing from www.sacredpaws.com at an added cost.

Partitioned Service: Ashes Returned

A Partitioned service is when your pet will share the unit with another family's pet; but, will be separated by a fire brick wall.  We will build a fire brick wall between the two pets giving your companion his or her Partitioned section of the cremation chamber.  Ashes are returned in an urn of your choosing. 

Communal or Group Service:  Ashes Not Returned

The least costly Pet Cremation is a Communal Cremation Service.  With a communal cremation you will not get the ashes back.  Your pet will be processed with several others, co-mingling of the cremated remains will not allow us to return Partitioned pet cremains with any integrity.  The cremated remains will be scattered on property surrounding the Sacred Paws Pet Crematory: 149 Lela Lane, Jacksonville, NC 28540.

 

 

 

 




Both Private and Partitioned Cremation cost includes one of the above hard, white, plastic, temporary urns.  The sacred cremains of your pet will be sealed inside a plastic bag, then sealed inside the temporary urn; this allows easy transfer to a permanent urn when you find one that matches your pet's personality.  We can make time available for you to come in person to check out our in stock urns, or select one from the "Urns" link on this web page.  All urns listed on this website other than the plastic temporary urns are an additional cost to the private and partitioned cremation service prices ... prices of urns are as published on this website, plus tax.
