The loss of a beloved pet is difficult and complex.
It is family that is at the heart of everything we do. For that reason, we include pets in the same plots as their human parents, and we celebrate all family members with dignity and perpetual care.
At Life Forest we commit to help our families by working in close coordination with you, their veterinarian. We will work directly with you to assist the family in retrieving of cremains via the USPS mail, or direct pick up of cremains or composted remains. Families are welcome to host a burial service for their beloved pet. The burial plot for their pet is the same in which the human companions will share at the end of their lives. There is no difference between how we revere pet remains and humans; all the information on this website is considered the same for people and pets. Pets names are also documented with the Registry of Deeds with their human family members.
“As a veterinary professional, I experience, first hand, the love between pets and their human companions. I also treat my pets like family, which is why I am excited that Life Forest is an option for myself, my clients, and our beloved pets to share our final resting place.”

Special Consideration for Large Animals Such as Horses
During the difficult process of euthanasia, Life Forest can help to coordinate transportation for a beloved horse to the crematorium or composting service provider and subsequently to the burial plot at Life Forest. We will work with you to arrange a memorial or burial service for the family if desired.
