Local Care

Your pet is a huge part of your life and should be treated with the same love and care as any friend or relative. That is why local care for pet cremation is important.

That is why local care is so important. When your pet comes to Pet Cremation Services of Tidewater, they never leave our office. They will not be taken with other pets to an out-of-state crematorium. They stay right here in our local care. Our crematorium is right here at our Virginia Beach office, so your pet stays in our loving hands from the beginning, until the time they are returned to you. To ensure we return your pet’s ashes to you, we track your pet throughout the entire process.

We know that losing a pet is painful. The thought of leaving your pet in someone’s care and deciding what to do with their remains is stressful. Our compassionate, professional staff will provide you with caring assistance and will gladly answer your questions. Local pet cremation means we provide that local touch to our services. We offer pick up services from veterinary clinics and homes 7 days a week. We live and work in your local community.
