Pet Services

Animals are wonderfully agreeable friends. They ask so little of us, and give so much love in return. When it comes time for you to let go of your animal companion, making the decisions on how to care for their physical remains can be heart-wrenching.

Girdner's pet crematory, PurrFect Paws Pet Crematory, is now open and serving pet families from throughout Siskiyou County!

Cremation

  • PRIVATE
    Private cremation is a process where only one pet is present in the cremation chamber, similar to the process used for human cremations. After cremation, we remove your pet's cremated remains from the chamber and return them to you in an urn of your choice.
  • INDIVIDUAL
    Individual cremation means that your pet shares space in the cremation chamber with 1-2 pets. Each pet is separated by space and divider trays ensuring that your pet is not commingled with other pets. Your pet's cremated remains will be returned to you in an urn of your choice.
  • COMMUNAL
    Communal cremation is for pet owners who do not wish to keep their pet's cremated remains but would still like to care for their pet's remains in a dignified and loving way. In a communal cremation, multiple pets are cremated. The cremated remains are then spread on private land by one of our staff members.


Memorial Items

Prior to cremation, we can create keepsakes for you to remember your pet for years to come. This includes ink paw prints, clay paw prints, or keepsakes that include locks of fur or feathers. Ask our staff for more details on what we offer.

"Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day. It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them."
