At Precious Paws and Claws we understand the bond between people and horses is just as strong as the bond we have with cats and dogs. We have several family members with horses and we under stand the importance of providing proper closure when a horse that has been a part of our lives pass away. We offer several options for families that do not have the ability to bury their horse on their own property and they want to insure that their horse does not end up being rendered.
We can help with all large animals from llamas to lions. We can handle all large animals up to 3000 pounds. Please call for pricing on large animals.
We are offering whole horse private cremation services for horses for $995. (We are one of the few crematories in Northern California that has the facility to do whole horse services.) This service includes a cremation certificate, handcrafted wood urn ( one of the urns at the bottom of the page without a photo ), brass name plate and room to nail 2 horse shoes on the side. For an additional $75 you can choose the photo urn above. It will include custom suede matting highlighting your photo, this urn is the first choice by many people.
If you would prefer a smaller urn, you can choose any one of the photo urns for small pets from the urn page and we will give you the remaining cremains to spread at your place or we can spread them at our ranch, for $995. The picture frame urn below makes a nice urn for horses because it can hold a 8x10 photo and be displayed easly on the wall of your home or office.
We also offer private cremation services for families that would just like to have a small ceder wood lock box urn with a small portion of the cremains for a memory for $895.
