Our trained and dedicated staff is available to assist you when the need arises. We offer private and communal cremation, with transportation from the place of death, whether that is from home or a veterinarian's office. Pets may also be brought to our cremation facility at 415 Cherry Street, Carthage, Illinois, or our funeral home at 917 Blondeau Street, Keokuk, Iowa, by the family and by appointment only.
It is important to know the different options available when choosing cremation for your pet. The Elms Pet Cremation Service is pleased to offer both communal and private cremation to our community.
Communal: Pets are cremated at the same time along with other pets. Cremated remains are not returned to the family.
Private, Single Pet: Only one pet is cremated from beginning to end of the cremation process. This option is performed using the same human industry standards with a guaranteed return of the pet's cremated remains.
We offer many remembrance options including customizable urns, keepsakes and paw prints.
