PET CREMATION SERVICES
The Humane Society of Pagosa Springs offers cremation services for your companion animal. Be assured that you and your pet will be treated with professionalism, care and compassion. We offer several cremation options:

  • Private Cremation - During a private cremation your pet is by itself in the cremation chamber. You are guaranteed that the cremation remains you receive are entirely your pet's ashes.
  • Communal Cremation - During a communal cremation your pet may be placed in the cremation chamber with one or more other pets in separate spaces. There will be some comingling of cremation remains. This is a more economical cremation option.
  • If you do not wish to have cremation remains returned to you, your pet's ashes will be placed in our Serenity Garden at the animal shelter. The garden is a wonderful place to walk and enjoy the magnificent mountain views or simply sit and remember the beloved people and pets in our lives. The public is always welcome.

Cremation services rates are as follows:

Animal Weight   Private Fee   Communal Fee
<25 lbs.   $115   $50
25-50 lbs.   $140   $65
51-75 lbs.   $165   $75
76-100 lbs.   $190   $90
>100 lbs.   $220   $110


All Private Cremations include your pet's cremains returned to you in a hand-crafted Wooden Urn with your pet's name engraved on a brass name plate.

All Communal Cremations include your pet's cremains returned to you in a clearly labeled sturdy cardboard container. If you do not wish to receive your pet's cremains they will be scattered in our Serenity Garden. Optional wooden urns are available for purchase:

Animals may be dropped off during business hours only, unless prior arrangements have been made. Payment is expected at the time the animal is dropped off. Please allow 7 days from drop off date for animal's return. Please call the Animal Shelter at (970)731-4771 if you have any questions.

Memorial Brick: A memorial donation of $100.00 or above entitles you to a laser engraved memorial brick to be placed in the Serenity Garden at the shelter. The versatility of laser lets us put 20 characters per line on a 4" x 8" brick with 3 lines per brick standard. Also a laser "paws" can be placed on your memorial brick.
