Gentle Passing

Saying goodbye to your loving pet at home

Cremation Services: 

·        Cremation services are provided through the S. Morris Company.  Steve Morris has been providing pet cremation services to the Puget Sound area for over 15 years.  He has an excellent reputation, and will handle your pet with respect.  I can personally vouch for him, as he has provided services for several of my own pets.

·        Please be aware that the S. Morris Company cannot be reached directly by pet owners. The creamation service picks up directly from Dr. Chan and returns ashes to her.

·       Cremation costs are based on the weight of your pet. 

Non-private (group) cremation:

·         Up to 40 pounds: $40

·         41 – 70 pounds: $60

·         71 pounds and above: $80

Private (individual) cremation:

·         Up to 40 pounds: $175

·         41 – 70 pounds: $200

·         71 pound and above: $250


·       Home delivery of ashes is included, if you choose private/individual cremation.  Your pet will be cremated separately, and you will receive only your pet’s ashes.  Please be aware that it may take up to 2 – 3 weeks for the ashes to be returned to you. 


·       If you choose communal (group) cremation, your pet will be cremated with others and the ashes will be scattered at an apple orchard in eastern Washington.


·       If you are considering home burial, please check with your city, as some municipalities do not allow this.
