At Family Animal Services of Utah ~ Pet Care Memorial Center, we understand that every family has different wants and needs. We will work with your specific needs to ensure you feel comfortable about the services we offer and assist you through this difficult time.
The following services described below, require additional fees &
appointments unless noted otherwise. Please contact our office to discuss
your specific needs and to arrange services.
SAME DAY RETURN OF ASHES
Premier Private Cremation services only. Must be prearranged.
ECO-GREEN CREMATION SERVICE
Premier Private Cremation services only. Cremation is completed with no other objects except one
of our metal id discs that is used to track your pet. This type of cremation will have the ID disc
returned to owner separate from pet’s ashes. Pet’s pure ashes are place in a biodegradable urn which
can be buried if desired.
GENTLE HOME TRANSPORTATION SERVICES
A member of our staff will come to your home to pick up your pet and transport back to our facility
for the cremation services you choose. Our vehicle is discreet, licensed and sanitary. DURING
BUSINESS HOURS there is a minimal fee in addition to the cremation service cost based on your
location/distance from our office.
VETERINARIAN TRANSPORTATION SERVICES - FREE SERVICE (with cremation)
If you use on of our “preferred veterinarians", we coordinate directly with their staff to pick-up
your pet’s body and bring to our facility for services. We will return pet’s cremains (if private or
premier private cremation) and/or memorial products purchased to the clinic/hospital of origin.
If your pet is at a hospital/clinic that does not contract services with us, we can still transport your pet
FREE OF CHARGE to our facility. Simply notify your veterinarian that you will be using our services and that
we are authorized to retrieve your pet’s body. Give us a call and let us know that your pet needs to be picked
up. We will coordinate all services directly with you and no services will be performed until you have
authorized us to do so.
CLIENT DROP-OFF OF PET - FREE SERVICE (with cremation)
Clients may schedule an appointment to bring their pet directly to our facility during business hours.
Same day appointments are always available.
AFTER HOURS & WEEKEND DROP OFF (as available)
Currently we do not have scheduled weekend and/or evening appointments available. Many times we
have staff available to assist you. Please contact our office to inquire about your specific need. Additional
charges would apply in addition to cremation services.
VIEWING OF PET - ARRANGEMENTS MUST BE MADE IN ADVANCE
Many times families choose to spend a few private moments with their pets prior to cremation.
Our Grieving Room is arranged to allow family members to gather and reflect on the life of their pet and
say their final goodbyes. Since we only allow one family in our facility at a time, time is restricted to one
hour. Please contact our office if this is a service you are considering. This must be prearranged.
PLACEMENT VIEWING - VIEWING BODY PLACEMENT INTO CREMATORIUM
(Premier Private Cremations Only)
This is NOT the same as the viewing noted above. Many clients find peace of mind by watching their
pet’s body being place in the cremation chamber of the crematorium. This is done through a viewing
window in our Grieving Room. Families that choose this option will also have the opportunity to spend a
few moments with their pet prior to placement, if desired. NOTE: This service is only scheduled as the
first cremation of the day and done only as schedule permits so it is very important to call our office to
schedule as soon as possible.
CREMATION FOR EXHUMED PETS (Premier Private Cremations Only)
Many times families choose to bury their pets and then later decide a cremation better fits their needs.
We have handled many exhumed pets and give families piece of mind that their beloved pets can be
reunited with them. There are special handling requirements when pets are exhumed. There is a
exhumed pet handling fee in addition to the Premier Private Cremation fee.
PRE-PLANNING OF SERVICES
We encourage families to pre-plan their services as the time draws near. Many times families feel
comforted to know that all the difficult decisions have been made before the time comes to say final
goodbyes. If pre-planning is something you would like to do, please call our office and speak to our staff
about your options.
Many times families have special requests for the handling of their beloved pet that do not fall within the above described services. We specialize in working with all types of special requests. Please feel free to call our office and discuss your special needs.
