Since you are visiting our website, you may have recently lost a beloved pet, or are facing a difficult decision for them in the near future. Please allow us to extend our heartfelt sympathy.

Family Owned and Operated

To many pet owners, the death of an animal companion is as profound as the loss of a human family member. We completely understand the deep sadness one can feel when a pet dies.

Royal Pet Cremation is a family-run service created in 2007 to fill a local need for professional and dignified pet aftercare. We are committed to providing prompt, individualized attention during this difficult period.

The Nichols family has over seventy years of experience helping tri-state area families in their time of loss. You can be assured we will treat your pet with the respect they deserve, and handle all aspects of the cremation in an ethical and caring manner. Why wonder . . . why worry?

"Our family would like to say thenk you from the bottom of our hearts for taking care of Shelby and returning her to us so quickly. Needless to say after twelve wonderful years with her this is a tremendous loss. It was such a relief to learn about your pet cremation service that was local. You must be a special person to care enough about peoples’ pets to start this service. It definitely fills a need for grief stricken owners."

"Charlie Brown prided himself on keeping me safe, protected, and loved. I promised Charlie I would keep him safe, protected and loved. Your outstanding act of compassion greatly assisted us to keep our promise to one another. I can never repay you with enough heartfelt words or referrals.

I encourage you to continue with the work you provide us devastated pet parents. Being able to have someone such as you to handle them respectfully and lovingly eases the letting go process."

Tori Sabin

"Our family would like to express our gratitude for your sincere compassion and excellent service you provided us on the loss of our boy, Star. Not knowing where to turn or what to do, my daughter asked me to contact you, as your website advises that you provide same day service. As distraught and heart-wrenching it was to suddenly realize right at that moment that our beloved boy was ready to go the Rainbow Bridge ... I trusted my daughter and called Royal Pet Cremation. Although it was after hours, you were kind enough to call me right back.

Right after we said our final goodbyes at the vet’s office, you were there as promised. You were so sincere and kind. You said we could have our boy the following day, and you were true to your word. You helped provide comfort during this extremely difficult time. For these reasons and so much more, words cannot express our deepest gratitude for all you did to help us through this. We will always be truly grateful.

Earl, thank you so much for your timely services, but most of all, for your deep compassion for our beloved pets. Star is once again back home with us where he can rest in peace!"
