Many people will start thinking about the final care for their pet when the time comes to call their Veterinarian to make an appointment. To make this difficult day just a tad bit easier, your veterinarian can contact us after your appointment. The staff at your Vet Clinic will discuss your pet’s final care options with you. Here is a brief description of the final care options we provide:
At Home on the Range provides the following:
Private Cremation – Your pet will be cremated by himself/herself and returned back to you
Communal Cremation – Your pet will be cremated with other pets, and will not be returned back to you, but instead your pets cremains (ashes) will be buried here on our family farm in Amsterdam. This 80 acre field will be planted with Wheat, Oats or Barley (40 of the 80 acres, every other year). It has a beautiful view of all of our vast Mountain Ranges in our area, and also miles and miles of farming country.
Farm Field Burial – Your pet will be buried in our 80 acre farm field that is dedicated to the Pet Cemetery. Every other year 40 acres of this field will be planted with Wheat, Oats or Barley. This field has a beautiful view of all of our vast Mountain Ranges in our area, and also miles and miles of farming country.
Cemetery Burial – We have a 1 acre area, which has a natural setting of wildflowers, tall grasses and Mountain views where your pet will be able to have a burial marker, if so desired, for the burial plot.
If you decide to have a Veterinarian come to your home, they will usually contact us for you. We provide pickup service from your home, if needed, or the Veterinarian will often transport your pet directly to us. Some owners prefer to bring their pet to us themselves. Please call to schedule these arrangements with us directly.
Making decisions regarding the ﬁnal care for your pet can be very difficult. Please do not hesitate to contact us or your veterinarian with any questions or concerns.
