We understand that your pet is a member of your family – a very special friend with whom you have made many wonderful memories. It is important you and your family know all of the options when it is time to say goodbye.
Our hospital works with Abbey Glen, providing after life care to pets since 1976. Abbey Glen Pet Memorial Park is a beautiful pet cemetery located on 14 acres in Northern New Jersey.
When the time comes, contact our office to help with your pet’s final care. We understand that this is a difficult time for you and your family. Our compassionate team is here for you whether you elect to stay with your pet or to leave your pet in our care during the procedure. Either way it is important that you meet with the veterinarian prior to the procedure.
After life care for your pet can be provided with the following options:
At Home Burial
- If you would like to bury your pet at home, check with the local municipalities regarding the rules for your location.
- If you elect communal cremation, Abbey Glen will cremate your pet and spread your pet’s ashes on their 14 beautiful acres of land in Northern New Jersey. You are always welcome to visit your pet’s ashes at their pet cemetery.
- If you would prefer to have your pet’s ashes returned to you, you can select private cremation. Your pet’s ashes will be cremated by Abbey Glen and returned to our office in a beautiful cedar urn. You will receive a certificate and gold plate with your pet’s name engraved on it.
