As a pet owner, you have the special responsibility of making aftercare choices on behalf of your pet. Working together with your veterinary clinic, we will gently guide you through the process of making cremation arrangements that are fitting for you and your pet. The Brevard Humane Society’s Heavenly Paws Chapel currently offers three cremation options:
Keeping the memory of your pet close to your heart, a communal cremation offers both solace and peace of mind. With communal cremation, your pet is gently placed into the crematory together with other pets. When the cremation process is complete, the communal remains are collected and will be scattered throughout Ella’s Walk located behind the Brevard Humane Society in Cocoa. Viewing for communal cremations cannot be accommodated.
Unfortunately, because no cremated remains are returned to you when you choose a communal cremation, you may wish to consider one of our personalized memorial bricks as a timeless remembrance.
Semi-Private Cremation is when more than one pet is in the crematorium when it is run, and the pets are divided in a manner that allows us to collect each individual’s cremated remains. Pets are placed in the crematorium so that they are not touching being are divided by space and a divider to keep ashes separate.
Only your pet’s cremated remains will be returned to your veterinary hospital or ready for you to take home from our Heavenly Paws Chapel in your selected urn.
Private cremation is a process by which only one pet is placed in the cremation chamber and cremated.
Individual or private cremation provides you with the opportunity to keep your pet’s remains as a permanent and personal keepsake. When the cremation process is complete, we ensure that you receive only the cremated remains of your pet.
Your pet’s cremated remains will be returned to your veterinary hospital or ready for you to take home from our Heavenly Paws Chapel in your selected urn.
