Tracks To Heaven

Frequently asked questions

The cremation of a pet is a traditional, respectful, clean, and rapid method of reducing your loved one’s remains.  Your pet is gently laid to rest on the hearth in our crematory chamber and is then exposed to high temperatures that quickly reduce the matter into ashes.  Ashes are gathered with care and placed in a beautiful urn of your choice.  You may also choose to scatter the ashes in your pet’s favorite spot, for example, or cherish them as a keepsake in your homeA

Private cremation – Your beloved pet will be placed into a crematory chamber completely alone.  You will receive only your pet’s ashes.

Communal cremation – We cremate several pets at the same time and you will not be able to get your pet’s ashes returned to you.  We scatter the ashes of communal pets at a beautiful location in Klamath County.

We have a multi-point check process in place, verifying the pet at each stage from the point of pick up or drop off to the point of return.  Each pet is assigned an identification tag that stays with the companion animal throughout the entire aftercare process.  You are also welcome to choose our witnessed cremation service, allowing you to witness your pet being placed into the crematory for an additional fee.

The cost varies depending on the weight of your pet and the service you choose.  For additional information, please call us at (541) 891-5253. We accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
