PRIVATE CREMATION

Private cremation provides you with the opportunity to keep your pet’s cremated remains as a permanent and personal keepsake.  When you choose private cremation, your treasured pet will be the only pet in the cremation chamber during the cremation process, ensuring that you receive only your pet’s ashes back.

Your pet’s cremated remains will be returned to your veterinary hospital in your selected urn along with a certificate of cremation, authenticating that your pet was cremated at Fond Memories. If you wish to pick up your beloved pets memorial products from our facility, you are welcome to do so.  Other options are also available at additional cost, please contact us for more details.





INDIVIDUAL CREMATION

Individual cremation provides you with the opportunity to keep your pet’s cremated remains as a permanent and personal keepsake. When you choose individual cremation, your treasured pet is placed into the crematory and separated from the other pets with partitions. When the cremation process is complete, we ensure that you receive only the cremated remains of your pet.

Our remembrance collection offers you the choice of either our blue or tan decorative metal urns, or our cedar latch urn. Gateway also offers a wide variety of memorial products that can be personalized for your pet.

Your pet’s cremated remains will be returned to your veterinary hospital in your selected urn inside a protective box along with a certificate of cremation, authenticating that your pet was cremated at Gateway by a Registered Pet Funeral Director.

COMMUNAL CREMATION

Keeping the memory of your pet close to your heart, a communal cremation offers both peace of mind and solace. With communal cremation, your pet is gently placed into the crematory together with other pets.

Since we cannot return cremated remains to you we find a final resting place for your pet within the memorial grounds of Fond Memories, in accordance with TCEQ law.  To honor your beloved friend  you may wish to purchase a paw-print keepsake.

 

VIEWING AND VISITATION

Sometimes, being close to your pet as you say your goodbye is an important part of the grieving process. For pet owners who prefer to say goodbye to their cherished pet in a private setting with family and close friends, Fond Memories offers the opportunity for a Viewing & Visitation service. In a pleasant and serene visitation room, you will be in close proximity to your pet during the cremation process. You are welcome to attend any or all portions of the cremation process of your best friend.

Our Scheduled Cremation Services is a time for gathering together in ceremony to share a meaningful goodbye – to grieve, to celebrate and to remember a faithful companion. Whether your wish is for a quiet, reflective memorial or a joyful tribute, we will help you make these arrangements in a warm and supportive environment.

Note: This service is by appointment only. 

BURIAL

With a private pet burial, you can choose an individual space for your pet or our team can choose one for you. Fond Memories keeps accurate records of burials, with a pet cemetery designed much like a human cemetery, laid out by rows and sections in individual 2×3′ spaces. We offer both caskets and a variety of monuments that we maintain year–round with seasonal flowers. However, we urge you to visit our pet cemetery and bring your own flowers as often as you wish.

We can also assist you in exploring the many options for your pet burial, unique ways to memorialize your companion with a meaningful wake and graveside service.
