How Much Does It Cost To Cremate A Dog

An average quote for basic dog cremation services is about $50 to $200. The cost depends on the facility and type of cremation you choose as well as the weight of your dog. Depending on your local crematorium, there is private and communal cremation. Private cremation reserves a separate compartment for your pet and you may get the chance to view the process at an additional cost. At a lower cost, communal cremation is where several animals are cremated together and their ashes are disposed of by the crematorium - they are usually spread over a dedicated garden for this purpose.


More pet owners choose cremation over burial because it is less expensive and more convenient. Caskets and cemetery plots are priced at least twice a cremation. Finding and arranging these may take away from the grieving process. Some local ordinances also restrict burial within one's backyard to prevent attracting wildlife and disturbing underground pipes and structures.
