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 uncomfortable to keep 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. Excludes group cremation.

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

  • Farm land located in the rolling hills of Arena, 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.

Temporary Holding Service

For those that are not sure what they want to do or who prefer to bury their pet but are unable to at this time, Memorial Pet Services can hold your pet for you. The price is $15/month for pets weighing 1-35 pounds and $0.45/pound per month for pets 36 pounds or more. Price will be rounded up to the following month.  Contact our Memorial Center for details

You can help by supporting the Pet Loss Resource Center (PLRC)

The PLRC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization that supports the pet community in south central Wisconsin. Companion pets are vital members of the family and this resource center can only do so much without more help. If you are able to help, financial donations is what we currently need to continue to help our community and maybe even yourself.


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

Thank you for the lovely card you sent. We appreciate how you handled the pickup of Kumbira with dignity, and the way you closed off the cremation process. The lovely blue velvet bag in a paw print container, carefully placed in a labeled bag with additional documents was both thoughtful and meaningful. Thank you for everything.
