Private Cremation

What to Expect


At Metro Pet Crematory, our HRM based facility provides pet owners unparalleled service. We have a state-of-the-art operation that has never before been offered to HRM pet owners. Once a pet is in our care we are able to handle the cremation within 48 hours. Pickup at our office is generally available after 72 hours with pets usually returned to veterinary hospitals within 4-5 business days. 

Private Cremation  takes place with your pet, alone, in the cremation chamber. Private cremation is our specialty. At Metro Pet Crematory, we are the only pet crematory with operations within HRM.  Other cremation providers servicing HRM transport pets outside the city.  We are also the only HRM pet cremation provider using a tracking system, which will ensure the cremains (ashes) you receive are those of your pet.

The below costs also include an acacia wood urn with UV printing of name, dates and any special message you wish or a temporary cardboard container (scatter box) provided at a client's request.
