25-50# is $200

COMMUNAL: Your pet will be cremated together with other pets. No ashes are returned with this option.

If you choose home burial, please be aware that this option may be prohibited in your area. Please check with your local ordinances regarding their policies. Deceased Pet Care also offers burial services.
