Transportation Services

Sometimes your pet passes away at home.  They maybe to big, small or just something to difficult for you to do yourself.  So, if you are unable to transport your pet to us, we can arrange a time to pick up your pet from your home or your veterinarian office.  Contact our Memorial Center to make arrangements

Euthanasia Option

Often, pet owners would like a neutral location for the euthanasia, other than their veterinary office. By appointment, pet families are welcome to use our private room for this procedure or to schedule to have someone come to their home. This option can be scheduled with your veterinarian or we can refer you to a local mobile veterinary service that specializes in end-of-life care.

Scattering of Cremains

Sometimes you want the very best for our loved ones, but at the same time, it can be very difficult to hold or know what to do with the cremains of your pet once they are returned to you. If you just went through the cremation process or you have a pet from a while ago, this option maybe what you are looking for. We will take the cremains of your pet for you and spread them on privately owned land.

We have three (3) options of where we have access to private land:

  • Farm land located in the rolling hills of Area, WI
  • Wooded hills in Spirit WI
  • Bluffs over looking the shores of the Great Lake Superior.

Note: If you select one of these options, a release form will need to be signed prior to Memorial Pet Services scattering the cremains.

Dear Susan, Mark, and the rest of your staff, 

I wanted to thank you for today's service and care of my dog Jack. His passing this past Monday night was very sudden and scary for him and for me. The jarring memories I have of that night were of him in pain and sadness laying on a stretcher at the emergency vet hospital, and my having to make a heart wrenching decision. Being able to have time with him in your viewing room today allowed me to experience some much better final memories of him, seeing him calm and at rest in a comfortable surrounding. Obviously my hurt is deep, but I'm glad that you allowed me to be with him until the final moments to see him off. Thank you Mark for kindly encouraging me to pet Jack one last time. All of you were very nice, and I certainly felt your sincere understanding of my loss. I wish you the best as you continue to bring closure and peace to more pet owners. 

With warm regards, Robert Birnschein

I just wanted to thank you for all that you guys did for me during my loss of Bubba the brown pug. This past few weeks have been very difficult for me with him not being here. I cry everyday since he passed and its very hard especially this time of the year. He loved to eat and I would find him in the kitchen with me, but not this year. If I could find a way to  bring him back I would do whatever to have him back. I look at him everyday. His birthday was the 12/2 and I would make him a cake that he could eat and share with the others. I have enclosed a pick of him under the tree I put up last year. It was hard for me to put it this year but I did. In hope he would be laying there under the tree. But that didn't happen. Again thanks
