Pet Cremation Services

We know that when a loss occurs there is a need to do something. Monterey Bay LovedPet staff live next door to our Park so we have staff available 24/7 to answer calls regarding your deceased pet. Feel free to call anytime, day or night if you have had a loss and need assistance. Your call will almost always be answered by a live person, not a voice mail recording. No other local pet cemetery/crematorium offers this level of service.

It is not uncommon for a pet owner to “check around” to ensure they are providing the best service for their departed friend. We encourage that.We have been serving pet owners at this same location for more than 50 years. Our Park is rare as it is what is referred to as a “Green Grass” Pet Cemetery with Crematorium. We have in excess of 5,000 pets buried on these hallowed grounds and more join us every month. In the last few years several local businessmen have decided to exploit pet afterlife care strictly for the profit they can glean.

How do you know the difference when most everyone refers to themselves as “caring” or “dedicated” or “loving” and so on?

Are they honest or do they shade the truth with glib wording?

Will they let you be present when your pet is actually cremated? If not, why?

Where are they located? Are they hidden away in a steel or concrete industrial building because of cheap rent or secreted in the mountains far from you?

We live by a precept espoused by the late President Reagan: “Trust yes, but verify”. This is your pet so ask the hard questions and don’t accept glib excuses when taking your pet on that final journey.
