Professional Pet Cremation Services in Lewes, DE
Our pets are a part of our families. It is the singular bond we share, born from years of loyal companionship, unconditional love, cuddles, wagging tails, and wet-nosed nuzzles that makes saying goodbye particularly hard to bear.
All of us at Parsell Pet Crematorium are here to help guide you through this difficult time with the sensitivity, experience, and professionalism you will only find with us.
Parsell Pet Crematorium was founded in 1999 as Eastern Shore Crematorium, a division of Parsell Funeral Homes & Crematorium. In 2015 Eastern Shore Crematorium was formally renamed Parsell Pet Crematorium. Although we're still located at the Parsell Funeral Home & Crematorium, Parsell Pet now offers an independent space to provide the most sensitive, careful care of your pet's remains. Our many decades of experience in the funeral business make us uniquely suited to meet your needs and exceed your expectations when the time comes to say goodbye to your cherished companion.
Highest Standard of Care & Professionalism
As pet owners ourselves, we bring the same integrity, sensitivity and professionalism to our pet cremation services as we do for our human memorial business. We respect and appreciate what it means for you to entrust us with caring for your pet after death. When you choose Parsell Pet Crematorium, you can be assured your pet will be treated with the highest standard of care – an invaluable peace of mind and comfort during your difficult time of loss.
Our facility is designed with a viewing window so that you may view the placement of your pet into the cremation chamber and the initiation of the cremation process as part of the private cremation service. We encourage you to take the time you need to reflect on this very personal decision.
As part of our promise to oversee your pet's final farewell with integrity, we also offer a variety of memorial items to honor your pet. Our knowledgeable, sensitive and experienced staff is here to guide you through your available choices and address any questions or concerns you have.
Ask Your Veterinarian about Us
We work with several veterinarians in and around Sussex County Delaware. If your veterinarian does not use Parsell Pet Crematorium, you can still request our pet cremation service. Every veterinarian is equipped to properly hold your pet until we are able to pick him or her up for cremation to ensure your pet is treated with the highest standard of care. You can either provide us with your veterinarian's information or ask your veterinarian to contact us directly for instructions. There is no additional charge to pick up your pet from any veterinarian or animal hospital.
PET CREMATION SERVICES
What is Involved in Pet Cremation?
During the cremation process, your pet's body is reduced to ash and bone fragments using extreme heat within a cremation chamber. All organic matter is consumed by heat or evaporation. The remaining material is referred to as "cremated remains." These cremated remains are then carefully removed from the cremation chamber to be scattered or returned to you. At Parsell Pet Crematorium, we cremate dogs and cats of all sizes and other household pets. We use a specific identification process and protocols in accordance with the highest standards of care to ensure that you receive only your pet's remains.
Private Pet Cremation:
Pets Under 50 Pounds $235 / Pets Over 50 Pounds $265
We can guarantee that your pet will be treated with dignity and respect throughout the pet cremation process. You can be confident that in our private pet cremation facilities, your pet alone is placed in the cremation chamber. Upon completion of the cremation, your pet's cremated remains are removed from the chamber, processed, and returned to you. We will care for your beloved companion with the same reverence as we would treat any other member of your family. We can even arrange for your family to witness the pet cremation process if you so desire.
