Abbey Glen's Afterlife Services Help Pet Owners Find Closure


Pet Cremation Services for Keyport NJ Client

In addition to dealing with tremendous grief following the loss of a pet, many ​times families are not sure of their ​options for afterlife services. They are ​ ​unfamiliar or uncertain ​about​ ​the​ ​idea​ ​of​ ​cremation. ​Pets​ ​become​ ​part​ ​of​ ​the​ ​family,​ ​so​ ​it​ ​is understandable​ ​that​ ​the​ ​thought​ ​of​ ​pet cremation may be difficult. ​It can, however, bring much needed closure.

How A Keyport Pet Owner Found Solace In His Dog's Cremains

John​ ​from​ ​Keyport,​ ​​in Monmouth County ​New Jersey, ​recently​ experienced the loss of a pet and had understandable feelings of uncertainty when it came to pet cremation. He was kind enough to share his experience and the closure he was able to achieve after ultimately deciding on cremation.

"When​ ​I​ ​had​ ​no​ ​choice​ ​but​ ​to​ ​put​ ​my​ ​dog​ ​down​ ​after​ 14​ ​and​ ​a​ ​half​ ​years,​ ​I​ ​was​ ​​skeptical of​ ​cremation", he said. "However,​ ​my​ ​vet​ ​service​ ​made​ ​the​ ​​​arrangements​ ​and​ ​in​ ​exactly​ ​one​ week​ ​from​ ​the day​ ​he​ ​passed,​ ​we​ ​were​ ​able​ ​to​ ​pick​ ​​​​up​ ​his​ ​cremains. It​ ​gave​ ​me​ ​a​ ​sense​ ​of​ ​closure​ ​that​ ​I​ ​think​ ​I wouldn't​ ​have​ ​had​ ​if ​​​​​I​ ​decided​ ​against​ ​it.​​​ ​I​ ​called​ ​them​ ​to​ ​check​ ​on​ ​the​ ​status​ ​and​ ​they​ ​were​ ​so  ​​​​​considerate​ ​and​ ​professional. Thank​ ​you​ ​Abbey​ ​Glen​ ​for​ ​the​ ​sense​ ​of​ ​closure​ ​you​ ​have​ ​​​​​​provided."

We Offer Both Individual and Group Cremation Services

Cremation is a common choice for pet owners and Abbey Glen offers both individual and group cremation services through our two state-of-the-art facilities in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Individual cremation takes place within 24 hours of our receiving your pet. Following the service, pet's cremains are meticulously packaged and returned to your veterinarian, shipped directly to your home or held at Abbey Glen for the family to collect. Many families choose to be present for their pet's cremation service.

Our families may also choose a group cremation, which adheres to the same stringent and regulatory requirements as an individual cremation, but serves as a more budget-friendly option for some. Pets are cremated together and their cremains memorialized on Abbey Glen's 14 beautiful acres.
