Options for Aqua-cremation
Your beloved pet is always within the care of our team at A Gentle Goodbye. We track your pet from start to finish, and always know exactly where they are within the process. We have an additional layer of monitoring, and have an engraved metal tag that stays with your pet throughout the entire aqua-cremation process, which is returned to you as a keepsake with your pet’s ashes.
If you do not wish to have your pet’s ashes back to you, your pet will be aqua-cremated with other pets, and their ashes will be scattered respectfully on private property, so you will not receive any ashes back.
If instead, you would like your pet privately aqua-cremated, your pet will be placed in a private compartment within the aqua-cremation unit, which provides a complete barrier between individual pets. The ashes from the private cremation will be returned to you, along with an aqua-cremation certificate of service and personalized metal tag that has been with your pet throughout the entire process. You can make an appointment to pick your pet’s ashes up from our office in Northbrook for no additional charge, or we can have them hand-delivered to you, starting from $70.
