Cremation Options

The first option is Private Cremation. Your pet is handled separately, and we personally return the ashes to you in a standard metal container (usually the next day). If you prefer, one of our specialty containers can be utilized for an additional charge. Witnessed Private Cremations are also available, by appointment.

A second option is Communal Cremation, where several animals are cremated together. The ashes are buried, or respectfully scattered in a suitable place and manner. If you wish to have the cremated remains back, you should choose a private cremation.


For an additional $25, Royal Pet will pick up your pet from your home, or any local veterinarian’s office. If you prefer, you are welcomed to bring your pet to our facility. As explained above, Royal will return Private Cremation remains in a container of your choice. These containers may be buried on one’s own property, or transported elsewhere for burial or display.


Fees vary according to the size of your pet, and with your choice of options described above. Payment can be made by cash, money order or credit card.

Pet Remembrance Items

A large selection of urns, memorial plaques, jewelry and other pet memorabilia are available from Royal Pet Cremation. We stock many popular items, and can typically deliver most others within a week. Each order is custom engraved.

We would be happy to supply any of these products to you, regardless of whether or not we are providing after care for your pet.

Please call or e-mail us for the latest product and pricing information, and to place your order.


How quickly will the cremation take place, and when will my pet's remains be returned to me?

Royal will make every effort to pick up your cherished pet from your local veterinarian or home the same day we are contacted. We also try to ensure that the cremation is completed within 12 hours of your pet’s arrival at our facility. Royal will personally return your pet’s remains to you or your veterinarian promptly — usually the next day.

Can I transport my pet to you myself?

Absolutely, you may bring your pet to our facility if you choose to do so. Some pet owners find it therapeutic to provide some aftercare themselves. Whether your pet dies at home or at a clinic, you are welcome to take an active role in the process. However, if you prefer, we will be happy to transport your pet.

In what type of container will my pet's remains be returned?

Our private cremation fee includes returning the remains to the pet owner in a durable metal container designed for this purpose. Many pet owners opt for a formal, more decorative urn. Royal stocks many popular urns, and offers a wide variety of custom ordered items.

What should I do to get the process started?

Simply give us a call at (302) 655-7009, and we will take care of all arrangements. Our 24/7 answering service will relay messages to us after normal business hours.
