After Death Pet Services

Losing a dear friend is never easy. We understand that the passing of a beloved pet needs to be handled with dignity and compassion. Through years of caring, compassionate companion animal care, we understand the emotions encountered when a pet passes.

Determining what to do with your pet's remains is always a difficult decision to make. Our goal is to help you make the right decision for you and your family and to provide you with a sense of closure. Our staff is dedicated to making this difficult time as easy for you and your family as possible. If there is any way that we can help, please let us know.

Pet Cremation Services

If you choose to have your animal cremated you have two options; if you choose a private cremation your animal will be cremated alone and all of their ashes will be returned to you. If you choose a group/mass cremation your animal is cremated with other deceased pets and no ashes are returned.

Private Cremation

Your pet is cremated by itself with no other animals. All of the pet's remains (ashes) are returned to the owners. We return the remains to you in a memorial container.

Mass Cremation

Your animal is cremated WITH other animals. There is no way to place more than one animal in a crematory at a time and the remains not contact the other animals. Due to the air flow particles will be blown around. No ashes are returned to the owner because there is no way to guarantee which pet they are from. Some places will place each animal in individual trays or place dividers between animals, there is no way to 100% guarantee that remains aren't mixed when multiple animals are in the chamber at the same time.

Cremation Services

The James A. Brennan Humane Society is equipped with a crematory and services the Fulton, Montgomery area. You can bring your deceased pet to us directly and we will perform either a private or group cremation. Our rates are as follows:

Where to Bury a Good Dog

An 86-year-old poem that rings true today

Julia Kamysz Lane | April 12, 2012

Taken From

There is one special place for every good dog.

A friend sent this poem to me, knowing how much I miss my beloved Desoto and Shelby. I had been holding onto their ashes, unsure of where to bury my good dogs. Shall I scatter them into the Louisiana swamps that Desoto loved to explore? Would Shelby be happiest under the big tree, watching for squirrels? This poem tells me they're already in the right place. —Julia Kamysz Lane

Where To Bury A Dog

By Ben Hur Lampman

There are various places within which a dog may be buried. We are thinking now of a setter, whose coat was flame in the sunshine, and who, so far as we are aware, never entertained a mean or an unworthy thought. This setter is buried beneath a cherry tree, under four feet of garden loam, and at its proper season the cherry strews petals on the green lawn of his grave. Beneath a cherry tree, or an apple, or any flowering shrub of the garden, is an excellent place to bury a good dog. Beneath such trees, such shrubs, he slept in the drowsy summer, or gnawed at a flavorous bone, or lifted head to challenge some strange intruder. These are good places, in life or in death. Yet it is a small matter, and it touches sentiment more than anything else.

For if the dog be well remembered, if sometimes he leaps through your dreams actual as in life, eyes kindling, questing, asking, laughing, begging, it matters not at all where that dog sleeps at long and at last. On a hill where the wind is unrebuked and the trees are roaring, or beside a stream he knew in puppyhood, or somewhere in the flatness of a pasture land, where most exhilarating cattle graze. It is all one to the dog, and all one to you, and nothing is gained, and nothing lost—if memory lives. But there is one best place to bury a dog. One place that is best of all.

If you bury him in this spot, the secret of which you must already have, he will come to you when you call—come to you over the grim, dim frontiers of death, and down the well-remembered path, and to your side again. And though you call a dozen living dogs to heel they should not growl at him, nor resent his coming, for he is yours and he belongs there.

People may scoff at you, who see no lightest blade of grass bent by his footfall, who hear no whimper pitched too fine for mere audition, people who may never really have had a dog. Smile at them then, for you shall know something that is hidden from them, and which is well worth the knowing.

The one best place to bury a good dog is in the heart of his master.
