Some of our clients drive an hour or more to our facility to have their pet respectfully cremated. Sometimes it’s a hardship for pet parents to make two trips. Same-day service allows these pet parents to stay in Bellingham for a few hours while we provide after-care services, and then they take their pet’s cremated remains home later in the day.
Then there are pet parents who, for emotional reasons, want their pet’s cremated remains returned to them on the same day. Dropping off their pet and picking up their pet on the same day provides a great deal of relief.
Offering same-day service fits in with Life Cycle’s principle of providing personal service to each and every client. However, same-day service can create a hardship for staff members as it restricts their flexibility and delays already planned cremations. For this reason, in October 2016 we began charging a fee for same-day service.
Same-day service is available on a first-come, first-serve basis and requires the following:
- Private cremation
- Reservation placed the day before the cremation (when possible)
- Pet must be delivered to our facility
- If the cremation is to be witnessed, then the pet must arrive by 10:00 a.m.
- If no witnessed cremation, then the pet must arrive by 12:00 p.m.
Other restrictions may apply.
Monday thru Friday: $149
Saturday or Sunday and holidays: $249
This fee is in addition to the cost of cremation and other products or services.
