As a pet owner, you have the special responsibility of making aftercare choices on your pet’s behalf. Working together with your veterinary clinic, we will gently guide you through the process of making cremation arrangements that are fitting for you and your pet. Our professional team adheres to a strict code of ethics and exemplary standards of operation with every pet cremation. You can count on a high level of accountability when you entrust your pet to Gateway’s care.


Keeping the memory of your pet close to your heart, a communal cremation offers both peace of mind and solace. Communal cremation means that your pet is carefully cremated alongside other pets.

Because no cremated remains are returned to you when you choose a communal cremation, you may wish to consider one of our personalized memorial items, such as paw prints, as a timeless remembrance.


Private cremation provides you with the opportunity to keep your pet’s cremated remains as a permanent and personal keepsake. Private cremation means your pet will be the only one in the cremation chamber during the cremation process. When the process is complete, we ensure that you receive only the cremated remains of your pet.

Gateway offers a wide variety of memorial products. Making a decision regarding memorial products is a personal process. These items may reflect the life you shared with your pet, your personal style or possibly reflect your pet’s unique personality. Please take a moment to review our Memorial Products.

Your pet’s cremated remains will be returned in your selected urn, along with a certificate of cremation, authenticating that your pet was cremated at Gateway.


For some, being able to come to our care center to say a final farewell is an integral part of their healing process. For others, being close to their pet during the cremation process gives them peace of mind. This is where our Viewing and Visitation options come in.

If you wish to observe the cremation process, or hold a viewing for yourself or your family, please contact us for details and availability. These services are subject to availability and have an additional service fee.
